  • The major end-users of molded plastics such as building & construction, packaging, automotive, industrial, and electrical & electronics had been negatively impacted due to the pandemic outbreak. 
  • The global molded plastics supply chain was hampered due to the increased supply-demand gap by the global health crisis. Also, several electronics companies that use molded plastics as an insulating material in various consumer electronics products shut down their operations due to the risk of infection spread among the workforce. 
  •  The consumption of molded plastics reduced among several end-users during the pandemic, owing to the sealing of international borders by several countries. In addition, the falling income of builders led to a contraction of the demand for molded plastics from the building & construction sector. 
  • Moreover, the global molded plastic market is growing rapidly post the pandemic.
