Key Market Insights

"Superior properties of engineering plastics promoting the global market"

The growing use of engineering plastics in industrial applications anticipated to grow the global engineering plastic market during the forecast period. The growing trend of light-weight vehicles in the automotive industry for reducing the stress on the vehicle to improve fuel efficiency and for reducing carbon-emission, engineering plastics are widely used by automotive manufacturers. Moreover, increasing the use of engineering plastic in the end-use segments such as electrical & electronics, packaging, and building & construction is further advancing its demand in the global market. 

Engineering plastic offers excellent machinability, dimensional stability, and good chemical and wear resistance. Due to these superior properties, engineering plastic is replacing conventional metal such as aluminium, steel, and a material like wood, ceramics, etc. in many industrial applications such as 3D printing and aerospace, etc. In addition, government-sponsored schemes such as a sustainable goal of the UN and strict regulations against vehicle pollution control has further pushed the automotive industry to invest in R&D of an advanced material segment that will lower the vehicle weight and reduces the emission. 

On the other hand, the global engineering plastic market is being adversely affected by the high cost of material and increasing competition from other polymers. Overall, the global engineering plastic market was US$ 80.46 Bn in 2018 and expected to reach US$ 142.99 Bn by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2019 to 2027.

 

End-use Segment Analysis

"Automotive segment accounted for the fastest growth rate"

The automotive and transportation industry estimated to be the largest segment during the forecast period. Increasing research on lowering the weight of the vehicle to reduce fuel consumption, manufacturers are increasingly adopting engineering plastics in vehicle production. Further, with the increasing adoption of electric cars and government regulations on reducing automotive pollution, there is a high demand for engineering plastics from automobile manufacturers. Apart from the automotive, the electrical & electronics and packaging industry has a high demand for engineering plastics. This has further added to the growing market of engineering plastics.

Moreover, market players are targeting the automotive industry players by showcasing a portfolio that best suited for the automotive industry. For instance, in October 2019, Celanese Corporation, a global specialty material company provided the broadest portfolio of polymers having more efficient, automated, lighter, and better design freedom to OEMs that will help them to secure a competitive edge in the market. 

 

Regional Analysis

"Asia Pacific market dominating the world market"

The Asia Pacific is dominating the global engineering plastics market in 2018. The growing automotive industry due to the rising demand for vehicles and the emergence of electric vehicle manufacturers in the region is driving the demand of engineering plastics. In the Asia Pacific, China has a major share of the market due to its strong demand for electric vehicles and its largest automotive manufacturing hub of the world. Additionally, India, Japan, and other Asian countries also contributing to the growth of the regional market due to its growing automotive and electronics sector. Overall, the Asia Pacific estimated to be the most attractive to the region for investment and is the fastest-growing region during the forecast period.

Key Industry Development:

  • In February 2020, Solvay, a Belgium company introduced Xencor™ LFT compounds that offer high strength and enhanced impact resistance for applications in the medical field. This new compound provides offers healthcare designers and OEMs better opportunities to replace currently used metals and short fibre thermoplastics (LFT) used in structural medical components such as chassis, gear systems and components that require high mechanical properties and load-bearing capability. With the launch of this new compound, the company is expecting to improve their market share of advanced material in the medical industry. 
  • In December 2019, Solvay signed an agreement with Safran for supplying high-performance Halar® ECTFE film. The film will be used as a protective layer on the aircraft engine acoustic ring panel. With this collaboration, Solvay is expected to increase its share in the aerospace material segment. 
  • In February 2020, BASF SE, in partnership with Fabbri Group has developed cling film Nature Fresh, used in fresh-food packaging. Along with food, industrial packaging is also possible with this highly transparent stretch film. With this plastic film, both the companies have strengthened their collaboration and expected to increase their market share in the near future.
