Thermoplastic resins are raw, unshaped polymers that melt and change share to liquid when heated and turn solid when cooled. They can be repeatedly re-melted and remolded, allowing parts and scraps to be reprocessed. The global thermoplastic resins market is anticipated to grow at a steady growth rate till 2025 owing to several advantages of thermoplastic resins and increasing adoption of thermoplastic resins into various industry verticals.
The global Thermo Plastic Resins market was worth $XX billion in 2017 and is forecasted to reach $XX billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2017-2025).
Global Thermo Plastic Resins Market – Market Dynamics
Increasing demand for lightweight and naturally sustainable materials and their growing applications with end-user industry is the key driver of the industry. Moreover, growing adoption of thermoplastic within the automotive industry, increasing demand for automobiles, rising demand for recyclable and fast-curing materials, and rising penetration of composite materials by replacing metals are significant factors boosting the growth of thermoplastic resin market. Overall, the introduction of ultra-high molecular weight thermoplastic resins would drive the growth of thermoplastic resins industry within next few years.
Thermoplastic resin market looks good with opportunities in various applications such as powertrain system, electrical and electronics, chassis system, interior, exterior, underbody system, and others within the automotive industry. The particular need of the automotive sector such as lightweight and durable material will drive the future demand for thermoplastic resins.
The industry is anticipated to face particular challenges such as regulations to reduce CO2 emissions, crude oil, and naphtha price fluctuations, and product commoditization.
Global Thermo Plastic Resins Market – Segment Analysis
The global market for Thermo Plastic Resins is broadly segmented as resin type, compound type, end-user industry type, and composite type.
By the resin type, the market is segmented as Polypropylene, Polyamide, Polybutylene Terephthalate, Polyphenylene Sulfide, Polycarbonate, and Other Resins. By compound type, the market is segmented as Short Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, Long Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, and Glass-Mat Thermoplastic. The end-user industries segment is segregated as Transportation, Consumer Goods, Electrical & Electronic, and Others. Further, composite type segment is bifurcated as Glass Fiber-Reinforced Plastics and Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastics.
In terms of resin type, the polyamide is anticipated to remain the dominant resin owing to its short fiber thermoplastic-based applications. However, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is expected to witness the fastest growth over the next few years, driven by increasing usage of thermoplastic composites in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries.
Introduction of ultra-high molecular weight thermoplastic and sugarcane-based thermoplastic are some of the vital evolving movements that may lead the industry toward higher sustainable growth. For instance, BASF introduced an advanced grade of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) in August 2018, which can considerably improve production of shoe shanks and decorative shoe parts in high-performance shoes while providing excellent mechanical properties, such as UV resistance.
