Engineering Plastic Market – Market Overview

Engineering Plastic is a group of plastic material which exhibit excellent physical and chemical properties. The group of material mainly consist polypropylene, PVC, polyethylene, and polystyrene and are collectively used as an Engineering Plastic. It has used in range of industries including automotive, consumer goods, construction, electrical & electronics, and others due to their greater physical and chemical properties. Among the above-mentioned application scope, automotive is the major application industry for Engineering Plastic due to massive automotive productive across the globe. Engineering Plastic is relatively low in weight, therefore, trend for light weight vehicle parts for the fuel efficiency is the most prominent actor augmented the Engineering Plastics demand. Additionally, need for metal replacement in the construction and electronics & electrical is also establishing the prominence of engineering plastic and driving the global demand.  Crude oil is the only raw material used for the production of Engineering Plastic, therefore, instability in the crude oil prices has been disturbing the global growth and is considered as key restraints over global demand. Moreover, increasing global environmental awareness regarding CO2 emission also inhibiting engineering plastic demand. Both of these factor further expected to challenge the global demand over the forecast period.
