Key Research Insights

  • Polycarbonates remain the most sought-after engineering plastic compound and will possibly see nearly 6.2% growth in sales
  • Polyamides are also likely to emerge lucrative in light of the growing boom around electric vehicles (EVs)
  • Asia Pacific accounted for the revenue of over US$10 Bn in 2020

Insights into Segmental Analysis

The concept of engineering plastic compounds is an umbrella covering a large number of products such as polyamides, styrenics (ABS & SAN), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polycarbonate, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyoxymethylene (POM), and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). While polycarbonates remain the dominant segment that has been projected for a healthy CAGR of 6.2% CAGR through 2025, the segment registered revenue worth around US$4.5 Bn in the year 2020. Polyamides will be the next significant segment, followed by ABS. The report attributes rising ABS adoption to the rising EV boom. Based on the analysis by end user, automotive industry recorded the revenue contribution of over US$6 Bn in 2020 and will remain the top end user segment in engineering plastic compounds market through the end of forecast period. In addition, rising application in medical devices industry, and food packaging sector will further elevate the scope of growth for the market. Uptake by industries like building and construction, consumer products, and electrical and electronics will also remain on an uptrend.

Key Report Highlights

  • Rising adoption of engineering plastic compounds in 3D printing realm is expected to maintain the buoyancy of market throughout the period of projection
  • Notably rising preference for engineering plastic compounds in packaging of food products, as well as medical devices will boost market revenue

Insights into Regional Analysis

Accounting for the largest revenue share of over 45% in global engineering plastic compounds market, Asia Pacific continues to spearhead, led by China, and India. ASEAN countries, especially Malaysia, and Thailand also remain at the forefront of demand generation, marks the report. With the world’s largest manufacturing hub, and unprecedented growth of key end-use industries like automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, consumer appliances, and building & construction, Asia Pacific will continue to provide the most suitable breeding ground for engineering plastic compounds market players.
