Global Plastics Market Size, Share and Trend Analysis Report 2021: PE, PP, PU, ​​PVC, PET, Polystyrene, ABS, PBT, PPO, Epoxy Polymers, LCP, PC, Polyamide –

DUBLIN – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The report analyzing Plastics Market Size, Share, and Trends by Product (PE, PP, PU, ​​PVC, PET, Polystyrene, ABS, PBT, PPO, Epoxy Polymers, LCP, PC, Polyamide), by Application, By End Usage, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028 “report has been added to offer.

The global plastics market is expected to reach $ 750.1 billion by 2028 and grow at an annual growth rate of 3.4% from 2021 to 2028.

It is expected that rising automobile production and a subsequent increase in plastic consumption in automobile component manufacturing due to regulatory guidelines related to vehicle weight reduction and fuel efficiency will drive the market during the forecast period. Plastics enable fuel savings in automotive applications due to the lower vehicle weight and lower density compared to conventional materials such as metals or rubber.

For the past decade, there has been a significant demand for the products to replace metals and ferrous alloys in various industries such as consumer goods, automotive and industrial machinery. The growth in market criticality depends on various factors, such as the ever-increasing demands of end users on product specification and the versatility, which influences the dynamics of consumption. Other factors such as socio-political events, production process and raw material availability events also have a significant impact on industry trends.

The rapidly developing construction and automotive markets in the Asia-Pacific region are expected to increase the demand for plastics in the interior, exterior and under the hood. Main applications include under-the-hood components in the automotive industry, the interior and exterior of buildings in the construction and infrastructure industries, and various applications in electronics and the consumer goods industry.

The COVID-19 outbreak is fueling demand for plastics in the medical consumer industry. Companies are focused on increasing their resources and production capacities to meet the increasing demand.

In April 2020, for example, Exxon Mobil Corporation announced it would increase its monthly production of specialized polypropylene by 1,000 tons to meet the growing need for medical masks and gowns due to the spread of the coronavirus. This increase in polypropylene production is expected to help medical mask and gown makers produce an additional 20 million gowns, or 200 million medical masks.

The extrusion applications segment is expected to expand at a significant rate of growth over the forecast period. It is widely used to make straws, hoses, pipes, and window frames. The increasing demand for these products from the packaging and construction industry is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the extrusion applications segment in the forecast period.
