Materials for Higher Requirements: New Ceresana Report on the Global Market for Engineering Plastics

Press release from: CERESANA

The taillights of cars are becoming increasingly spectacular; the former radiator front can also be redesigned with electrification. The new vehicle design is often made possible by PMMA, better known under brand names such as Plexiglas or Acrylite. "Although engineering plastics are more expensive than standard plastics, they are characterized by special physical and chemical properties," explains Oliver Kutsch, managing director of the market research institute Ceresana: "These high-performance and lightweight materials can be used continuously at temperatures up to about 150°C. They are increasingly replacing metal, glass or ceramics in applications such as plain bearings, gears, seals, insulators and housings." Ceresana has analyzed the global market for engineering plastics for the fourth time: Last year, 22.4 million tonnes of ABS, PC, PA, PMMA, POM, PBT, SAN and fluoropolymers were consumed.

Automotive Industry: A Growing Application Area

The two most important sales markets for engineering plastics are currently the electrical and electronics industry and consumer products. However, the market researchers at Ceresana forecast that the third largest area of application to achieve the highest growth in the next few years will be the automotive industry. In contrast, applications in the construction industry will develop at a somewhat slower pace, with expected growth rates of 2.2% per year. There are major differences between the various types of engineering plastics in this respect.

ABS Dominates the Market for Engineering Plastics

Ceresana's latest study provides demand, revenue, production and trade figures for the overall engineering plastics market, as well as demand for each of the different types of plastics and their applications. The best-selling engineering plastic is currently acrylonitrile butadiene styrene: ABS accounts for around 41% of global demand. ABS is used primarily in the automotive sector, for electrics and electronics, and in smaller quantities in the construction industry and in the household and consumer goods sector. Typical products made of ABS are door panels for cars, housings for electrical appliances, films, pipes and covers, but also shower heads, as well as numerous toys, sports and leisure products.

Manufacturers of Construction Plastics

Chapter 1 provides a depiction and analysis of the global market for engineering plastics - including forecasts up to 2030: for each region of the world, demand and production and revenues are explained. In addition, global and regional demand per type of plastic, per application area and the demand for individual products per application are analyzed. These types of plastics are considered in detail: Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), Polycarbonate (PC), Polyamides (PA), Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), Polyoxymethylene (POM), Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), Styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), Fluoropolymers. The areas of application examined are: Transportation, Electrical and Electronics (E&E), Consumer Goods, Construction and others. Chapter 2 considers 25 countries individually. Country-specific demand, revenues, production and trade; demand per product; and demand per application for major countries are presented. Chapter 3 provides useful company profiles of the most important manufacturers of engineering plastics, clearly arranged according to contact details, revenues, profit, product range, production sites, capacities and profile summary. Extensive profiles of 117 manufacturers of engineering plastics are provided.

Enveloping Walls: Ceresana Analyzes the European Market for Insulation Materials
Extremely thin and highly insulating, fireproof and light as a feather - are aerogels the insulating materials of the future? They are already available not only for space suits, electric vehicles and batteries, but also for house walls. The nanoporous high-tech materials are usually made from silicon dioxide, but they can also be obtained from biopolymers such as cellulose or lignin. However, the best insulating materials to date are often
Colorful world market: current Ceresana study on pigments
Around the world, green is considered the color of new beginnings, of growth, of life. However, finding truly "green" pigments is a challenge: cadmium, cobalt, copper and other heavy metals can be dangerous, while natural earth colors are less durable and more difficult to process. Nevertheless, the outlook for manufacturers and distributors of these small, coloring particles is predominantly positive: global demand for pigments will increase to around 14.5 million

Now, for the first time, the market research institute is publishing a study specifically on the European market for insulation materials made
Sustainable adhesion: Ceresana report on biobased adhesives
Adhesives make many environmentally friendly products possible: lightweight car bodies and batteries for electromobility, insulation glazing for facades and insulating panels as well as corrugated cardboard packaging or simple paper bags. Increasingly, however, not only the end products but also the adhesives themselves are to be "organic" - in fact, more than 13 million tonnes are already produced around the world each year, and this figure is rising. So far,
