Plastics Market

Plastics have witnessed an increasing product application scope in various industries like automotive, industrial packaging, construction, electrical & electronics and others, due to its unique qualities, such as durability, chemical & water resistance. Further, increasing investment in industrialization, rising urbanization and easy availability of plastic along with customization have led to the adoption of Plastics across the forecast period. For Instance: In Feb 2020, DSM expanded the capacity of its high-performance materials compounding plant in Evansville, IN., to meet increased regional demand for materials such as Akulon polyamide (PA) 6 and 66, Arnite PET/PBT, Arnitel thermoplastic copolyester (TPC), EcoPaXX PA 410, ForTii PA 4T/PPA and Stanyl PA 46. As per the World Bank data of 2019, China is the largest exporter of plastics, due to the abundant availability of raw materials and the low cost of production in China, thus increasing the market globally. However, environmental degradation due to non-biodegradable plastics impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2027. Also, the advent of bio-based plastic drives the market growth, for instance, Kolon Industries, partnered with SK Global Chemical to produce an eco-friendly biodegradable plastic product called PBAT for the production of recycled products using waste plastic as raw materials. With the favorable government initiatives for the recyclability of conventional materials, the adoption & demand for Plastics is likely to increase.
