The global polymer industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2015 to 2020. The demand for polymers is driven by growth in end use markets, such as packaging, building & construction, consumer goods, horticulture, automotive, rail transport, electronics and telecommunications. Polymers are continuously substituting metals, glass, paper, and other traditional materials in various applications due to their lightweight, strength and design flexibility along with low-cost. The thermoplastics segment is expected to witness the highest growth over the next five years. Increasing applications of engineered plastics in various fields, such as construction, automotive, and industrial manufacturing equipment, are expected to drive this industry. Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global polymer industry by application, product type and region and offers its findings in its comprehensive research report, “Global Polymer Industry 2015-2020: Trends, Profit and Forecast Analysis.” This report provides an analysis of the global polymer industry, including current and emerging industry trends, competitive landscapes, country assessment, and key drivers of growth. The study also includes a review of the global polymer industry by application for the year 2014.The report covers forecast of the global polymer industry through 2020 segmented under the following heads: By region: • North America • Europe • Asia Pacific (APAC) • Rest of World (ROW) By type of polymer: • Thermoplastics (PE,PP,PVC,PC,PS,PU,PMMA, polyamide and others) • Thermosets (Epoxy, unsaturated polyester, PF,UF, MF,PU and others) • Elastomers (Neoprene, nitrile, butyl, SBR, EPDM and others) The global polymer industry segmented by application for the year 2014: • Packaging, Consumer and Institutional, Building and Construction, Transportation, Furniture and Furnishing, Electrical and Electronics, and others -Thermoplastics • Plywood, Furniture and Bedding, Building and Construction, Automotive, Electronics and others - Thermosets • Tires, Automotive (non-tires), Building and Construction, Industrial Products and others - Elastomers On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that majority of the market segments for the global polymer industry would register good growth from 2015 to 2020. Rising applications of PE, PP, PS in automotive and packaging; increasing reliance of PET and PVC in bottling of beverages; extensive use of PE,PC, PVC,PMMA films for greenhouse covering; dependence on PU, PVC for footwear are some of the key factors driving demand in the thermoplastics segment. Consistent growth of the automotive sector is expected to increase demand for elastomers in tires. Continuous technological advancements in commercial development of polymers with improved properties and processing characteristics at competitive prices for most applications will be the key factor to future growth. The APAC region is expected to make great gains over the next five years due to envisaged increase in per capita consumption of plastics. Lucintel offerings include Chemical Market Research Reports, Chemical Industry Analysis Report, Capital Investment Feasibility, Opportunity Screening and Analysis and SWOT Analysis. Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec), and Exxon Mobil Corporation are some of the major global suppliers of polymers. This 93 slides research report enables confident business decisions in a competitive marketplace.
