Thermoplastics Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC592

Introduction

A thermoplastic is a polymer material which changes its shape and becomes moldable above a specific range of temperature and solidifies upon cooling. Most thermoplastics possess higher molecular weight and their brittleness is reduced by addition of plasticizers. Thermoplastics witness numerous applications in different industries. For example, it serves as a substitute of glass for aquariums, helmets, lenses of exterior lights of vehicles, etc. These are also used to make fabrics, rope, carpets and musical strings.

Market Dynamics

The market is witnessing significant growth owing to ongoing production of ultra-high molecular weight thermoplastic coupled with sugarcane-based thermoplastics. These trends are expected to drive the market over the forecast years. The market is poised to rise further and this growth is projected to remain intact in the coming years. High temperature thermoplastics (HTTs), due to their special characteristics such as higher chemical resistance, thermal stability, high dielectric strength, less shrinkage, and increased flexibility, is utilized in a various end-use industries such as agriculture, automotive, medical, electronics, industrial, and others..
