Mega Trends: Urbanization is, by far, the most important factor for the growth of engineering plastics market. Rapid urbanization and rising purchasing power in Asia, particularly China, India, and Southeast Asia, have resulted in booming demand for automobile, white goods, and infrastructure development. Urbanization and development of the region as a global manufacturing hub are the top reasons for high growth in Asia. Functionality and performance are the key determinants of materials in end-user industries. Weight optimization, without compromising on functionality, and safety are key features that auto manufacturers seek. The construction industry demands weather resistance, strength, and life-span of at least 50 years. Evolving product specifications have created a demand for specially designed engineering plastics.

Influencing Factors: Automotive OEMs' increasing focus on lightweighting has triggered new opportunities for plastics for the last two decades. The average plastic content of a vehicle has increased considerably over the years. Though plastics have penetrated interior and exterior applications to a large extent, under the hood is an area that still offers significant opportunities for growth. Engineering plastics with characteristics, such as toughness, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, heat resistance, and easy processability, will find increased applications in the automotive sector.

Regional Trends: Asia-Pacific is, by far, the largest consumer of engineering plastics; the region presents the most lucrative opportunity for future growth. The North American market is undergoing an economic revival, in addition to significant improvement in production. As most of the end-user applications are related to the economic wellbeing of an economy, the market is expected to grow at a moderate pace. The Western European market is likely to post a slower growth rate than the North American market over the short term due to sluggish economic growth. Moreover, the shift of electronics manufacturing to APAC may affect the market demand in this region.
