Extruded Plastics Market

Extruded Plastics Market

Extruded plastics are plastics of various shapes and sizes obtained through the process of extrusion in which they are forcibly squeezed through an instrument that imparts shape and shape to them. Extrusion is a method of high volume manufacturing. With heat application, the plastic material is melted and extruded into the desired shape by die. Inside the barrel, there is a cylindrical rotating grinder that pushes molten plastic material through a die. Depending on the cross-section of the die, the extruded material takes shape.

Owing to its increased demand for flexible food products as a food-grade material, the low-density polyethylene segment dominated the extruded packaging market in 2018 based on type. Based on the end-user industry, the packaging segment dominated the extruded plastics industry in 2018, owing to increased demand for packaging from food & beverage and consumer goods, especially during logistics for storing and protecting products. Cost efficiency is driving demand for extruded plastics with complex products and outstanding mechanical properties.

Asia-Pacific emerged in 2018 as the fastest-growing region in the backdrop of high demand for extruded plastics from significant end-use sectors such as automobiles, building & construction, packaging, consumer goods. Rapid industrialization and urbanization combined with economic growth in this region have led to the growth of these end-use sectors, which are expected to spur the demand for extruded plastics in the coming years. India, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand are the main contributors to global extruded plastics market growth. Heavy manufacturing and sales of lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles are a significant driver of the extruded plastics market in European nations such as Germany, the UK, France, and Russia. Furthermore, the presence of a massive medical base in the region is driving the growth of the market. Owing to industrialization in emerging countries such as Brazil and Chile, the RoW region market is anticipated to see significant growth. This has led to a rise in the number of construction activities that are supposed to fuel the region's product requirement over the forecast period. The infrastructure hub in the UAE and Saudi Arabia is expected to stimulate the Middle East demand for the extruded plastics market.

Key Factors Impacting Growth of Extruded Plastics Market:

  • Rising demand from the automotive and packaging industries
