Global Engineering Plastics Market Status and Prospect, Forecast 2018 to 2026

Posted by Andreas Winkler on March 5th, 2018

Plastic materials having an excellent combination of thermal and mechanical properties as compared to other commodity plastic materials are called as engineering plastics. These plastics materials have unique features such as high abrasion, higher impact strength, wear & fatigue resistance, high temperature resistance range, and chemical resistance ( on the content. Engineering plastics are costlier and are produced for particular applications. Engineering plastics are also known as thermoplastic materials. Henceforth these materials can efficiently be processed with standard plastic processing equipment.

Engineering plastics includes polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), poly-oxymethylene plastic (POM), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polyamides (PA), polycarbonates (PC), polyetheretherketone (PEEK), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polysulphone (PSU), poly(p-phenylene) oxide (PPO), polyimides, and poly-ether ketone (PEK). As a result of an extensive range of properties, engineering plastics has various applications in electrical, electronics, automotive, medical, construction, packaging, transportation, and numerous other industrial sectors.

One of the major driving factors for engineering plastics industry is the growth in the automotive industry in all regions. Due to its properties with respect to metals such as high strength, weight reduction, and lightweight, these materials were rapidly replacing metal components in industrial machinery as well as automotive industry. Growing demand in electronics & electrical appliances market the demand for engineering plastics has raised. However, higher cost of engineering plastics material may restrict the engineering plastics market. Use of engineering plastics in the aerospace industry for building spaceship could be the future trends for these market.

The global engineering plastics market report has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of region, the global engineering plastics market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
