Engineering plastics are a group of plastic materials such as polystyrene, PVC, polypropylene and polyethylene, and others. These materials have superior properties such as higher impact strength, high abrasion, wear, and fatigue resistance. It has better mechanical and thermal properties. Engineering Plastics are expensive and are manufactured for special purpose applications only. These are usually thermoplastic materials. Hence these materials can be easily processed with conventional plastic processing machinery.
According to a recent study report published by Market Research Future, the global market for engineering plastic is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The Global Engineering Plastic Market is projected to be worth USD 115.10 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030).
High growth in the automotive industry is the major factor driving the growth of the market. It has slightly similar properties to metals and is lightweight. Hence, these materials have been largely substituting some metal components in auto as well as industrial machinery and help in weight reduction. Additionally, the high demand for electronics and electrical appliances among the consumers also fuelling the growth of the market. However, higher costs, fluctuating prices of crude oil, and regulatory challenges regarding CO2 emissions are some factors that may hamper the growth of the market.
The Global Engineering Plastic Market is segmented in MRFR’s report on the basis of Product, Application, and Region.
By Product, the market is segmented into polyamide, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), thermoplastics, polyesters, polycarbonates, and others. Among these, the ABS segment accounts for the largest share on the basis of product due to the high demand for it. ABS is in high demand as it has properties such as chemical resistance, high-temperature resistance, mechanical potency, and several others.
Applications of Engineering Plastics are found in construction, electrical & electronics, automotive, consumer goods, and others. The automotive segment is the largest consumer of Engineering Plastic as they have extensive applications in the automotive industry. Used for the production of lighting components, connectors, and other automotive parts, Engineering Plastics is expected to witness increased demand from this segment due to the increasing demand for personal transportation vehicles.
Regional Segmentation divides the global market into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
