Transparent Plastics Market, By Product Type (Rigid, Flexible), By Polymer Type (PET, PVC, PP, PS, P

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1953050


Transparent Plastics Market is generally very pliable or moldable above a specific temperature and usually returns to a solid state upon cooling. These plastics exhibit properties such as recyclability, resistance to corrosion and chemicals, lightweight, low electrical and thermal conductivity, shock resistance, durability, water resistance, and others.

Segment Analysis :

On the basis of type, it is segmented into rigid and flexible. The rigid transparent plastics are most widely used and are now replacing the traditional glass, metal, and paperboard due to properties such as low cost, recyclability, etc.

By polymer type, it is segregated into PET, PVC, PP, PS, PC, PMMA. The PET polymer type is majorly used for food & beverage packaging as it is extremely lightweight and easy to transport.

On the basis of application, it is classified into packaging, building & construction, electrical & electronics, automotive, consumer goods. There has been significant growth in the demand for transparent plastics from the packaging segment. The growth of this segment is due to the increasing demand for packaged products as it improves the shelf life of products. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  •  Its properties such as recyclability, resistance to corrosion and chemicals, lightweight, low electrical and thermal conductivity, shock resistance, durability, water resistance, and others
  • Features like moisture barrier, micro-organisms repelling, and corrosion resistant, which results in the improved shelf life of food products
  • Growth of the healthcare, construction, packaging, automotive, and consumer goods industries
