Engineering thermoplastics are a subset of plastic materials that are used in applications generally requiring higher performance in the areas of heat resistance, chemical resistance, impact, fire retardancy or mechanical strength. They have a wide range of applications in consumer goods, packaging, sheet & profile extrusion, toys, and many more. These resins are mainly used in automotive and consumer goods applications that capitalize on its collective safety features. Being good electrical insulator, light weight and possessing heat resistant and flame retardant properties, they are highly utilized in various products associated with consumer goods, automobiles and construction. While demand dwindled due to weak downstream markets during the recession, revenue for the engineering plastics manufacturing industry is set to gain traction as construction projects resume.
Advent of many industries, such as electronics and consumer appliances, paved way to their production. Based on the grades of engineering plastics commercially available, the market is classified as ABS, PC, PA, Acetal, PEEK, PBT, PET, PMMA and many others. These plastics best serves in manufacturing products such as pipes, faucets, automotive body parts, golf club heads, protective head gear, toys and so on. Furthermore, it find its major application in consumer products such as kitchen appliances, housing products, and so on. Engineering Plastics have a strong resistance to corrosive chemicals and have low melting temperature. These plastics are entitled to have properties in one or more areas that exhibit higher performance than commodity materials and are suitable for applications that require engineering to design parts that perform in their intended use. All of these characteristics lead to these resins being used in a large number of applications across a wide range of industries.
The market is scrutinized by segments including type, application and geography. Based on various applications wherein these resins find their use, the market is segmented into electrical/electronics, consumer appliances, building & construction and many more. The report also comprises of the region wise study of the global market including Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Electrical & electronic industry is poised to dominate the market during 2016-2021. However, consumer appliances are comprehended to witness prominent CAGR of 3.9% during the same period. These resins are used in various electrical and electronic products such as casing of phones, small household appliances, microwave ovens, flat screens, monitors, keyboards, mouse and more.
