Posted by Payal Singhania on January 29th, 2020
Polycarbonate Market Scenario
The global polycarbonate market is presumed to garner USD 1 trillion during the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to the increasing demand from the end-use industries such as consumer goods, automotive, and electronics, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Polycarbonate can also be referred to as a thermoplastic polymer which occurs in a transparent crystalline form and exhibits great toughness and high impact strength at low temperature. Polycarbonates are resistant to moisture, resistant to chemical and electric, has better heat, and exhibit good thermal stability and oxidative.
Polycarbonate Market Drivers and Restraints Impacting the Market
Polycarbonate is a highly versatile type of thermoplastic and is extensively used in electronics and automotive industry, besides construction, medical, and agricultural industries. Such applications require high durability, light weight, easy processability, and better tear and heat resistance. Such factors are presumed to augment the market growth during the assessment period. High demand from major end-use industries such as consumer goods, automotive, and electronics are further likely to propel the market growth in the coming years.
On the flip side, volatile prices of raw materials are considered to retard the global polycarbonate market during the estimated period. Moreover, due to its chemical properties, polycarbonate is used in products used only once and not repeatedly. This is likely to inhibit the market growth in the coming years.
