(I-BusinessNews.Com, December 17, 2019 ) High-Performance Plastics Market High performing plastics are specially designed polymers with high mechanical strength, chemical resistance, and, all-importantly, temperature resistance.
The global High-Performance Plastics Market was worth USD YY billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach USD YY billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period (2019-2026).
High-Performance Plastics Market Outlook Increasing performance requirements across various applications are accelerating the adoption of high-performance plastics in both automotive and aerospace industries. The superior performance qualities and flexibility in integrating components are some of the prime factors of the market.
Further, the demand for these high-performance plastics is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to number production line unit of plastic.
Many companies in the world are expanding their product line in recent times which will boost the production of high-performance plastics.
For instance, in 2018, German chemicals company BASF SE has started up a new production line for its high-temperature-resistant thermoplastic Ultrason in Yeosu, Korea.
On the flip side, the high manufacturing cost of high-end plastics as one restraining factor for this market.
High-Performance Plastics Segmentation Market Analysis By end user, the global High-Performance Plastics Market is bifurcated into transportation, automotive, aviation, medical, and others (electrical & electronics). Of these, the Aerospace industry dominates the market owing to lightweight compared with other industrial materials.
Leading aerospace companies like Bombardier, BAE Systems, Raytheon, GE Aviation, and Lockheed Martin have also leaned into using High-performance thermoplastics and composites in their aircraft and defense-related systems.
These companies are using lightweight plastics to keep passengers comfortable, protect vital electronics, and improve the reliability of the mission.
However, polymer composites have a relatively low electrical conductivity. As a result, an extra layer of the copper mesh must be added to the fuselage of the Boeing 787 to dissipate the electricity from lightning strikes.
Currently, there is a growing interest in the use of thermoplastic carbon-fiber composites, such as those based on PEEK, to increase manufacturing productivity and satisfy growing demands for an ever faster aircraft build rate. For instance, Victrex recently launched a joint-venture with Tri-Mack Plastics Manufacturing Corp. to accelerate the commercial adoption of polyaryletherketone (PAEK) composite applications in the aerospace industry.
Regional, Country-level Analysis Geographically, the global high-performance plastics market business into North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW. Of these, Asia-Pacific is identified as the fastest-growing region for high-performance plastics, regarding value and volume.
Among the key factors that are expected to fuel this growth are high economic growth rate, growing manufacturing industries, cheap labor, increasing foreign investments, and a rise in applications of high-performance plastic across medical, transportation, and electronic industries.
Countries such as China, South Korea, and Taiwan—the major hubs for the production of electronic components, are expected to drive this market’s growth.
