Global Engineering Plastic Compounds Market, By Type (Fluoropolymers, Polycarbonate, Polyethylene T

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958299


Engineering plastics are a group of plastics that have better mechanical and/or thermal characteristics than other plastics. Because of that, they are more commonly used. Engineering plastics are mixed with additives and fillers such as antioxidants, antistatic agents, blowing agents, dyes, coupling agents, heat stabilizers, UV stabilizers, flame retardants or nucleating agents to generate plastic compounds for engineering purposes.  Metal parts are substituted in automotive and industrial applications by plastic engineering. The global engineering plastic compounds market is anticipated to high demand owing to the growing applications in the aerospace industry.

The global engineering plastic compounds market is segmented based on type, and application. By type, this market is split into fluoropolymers, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate, polybutylene terephthalate, polyacetal/ polyoxymethylene, polymethyl methacrylate, polyphenylene oxide, polyphenylene sulfide, styrene copolymers, liquid crystal polymers, polyether ether ketone, polyimides, polyamides, and other.  Polyethylene terephthalate segment is anticipated to rapidly grow in this market. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a resin for the engineering of thermoplastic polyester. PET resins are famous for their properties such as excellent melt flow characteristics, close molding tolerances, and high productivity from multi-cavity molds. Because of these properties, it is widely used in the motor housings, switches, sensors, and other electrical applications by replacing metal material. Based on application, the automotive & transportation segment is expected to high demand because engineering plastic compounds are widely used in apps such as connectors and housings, wheel wells, lighting & parts such as structural headlamp housings, headlamps & fog lamps and reflectors & lighting sockets. The global engineering plastic compounds market is expected to boom in the Asia Pacific region because of increasing demand from multiple sectors such as electrical & electronics and automotive & transport for engineering plastic compounds. The industry has expanded capacity in China with the emergence of standalone independent compounders. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increase in demand for environmentally friendly cars and light-weight cars
  • Rise in awareness regarding electric cars 
  • The lengthy and comprehensive plastics manufacturing process
