Engineering Plastics Market Dynamics:

Engineering plastics are increasingly displacing traditional materials in end-use applications. Engineering plastics are adaptable plastic materials with excellent physical and electrical features such as stability, chemical resistance, heat resistance, abrasion resistance, and weatherability. As a result of these features, they have become one of the plastics industry's fastest-growing segments. Because of ongoing innovations in the plastics industry, metals and glass are gradually being replaced by lighter materials. Because of their light weight and excellent strength, polyamides are utilised to replace metal vehicle gear shift modules. Metal replacement is significant in the automobile industry because it allows for lighter vehicles, more design freedom, easier part integration, and lower total system costs. As a result of government regulations and concerns about fuel efficiency standards, as well as consumer preferences for automobiles that get good gas mileage, automakers are focusing on improving fuel economy. Engineering plastics are also used in electrical components of hybrid electric vehicles due to their benefits, such as superior heat resistance. Other polymers provide competition. Other polymers, particularly those found in lower-cost engineering resins, are posing a severe challenge to engineering plastics. Commodity polymers such as polypropylene, for example, are putting pressure on ABS. When copolymerized with ethylene, polypropylene exhibits improved flexibility and toughness. Polypropylene can be used as an alternative to engineering plastics such as ABS due to its inexpensive cost and superior chemical characteristics. This threat is especially visible in cost-competitive areas like consumer goods and appliances, where product producers must compete with low-cost international suppliers. Engineering plastics are expected to be replaced with commodity plastics by companies who are focusing on cost reduction and have not yet recovered from the global economic recession. Problems with Processability Engineering plastics, particularly thermoset plastics, present challenges in moulding and other processing procedures. In these circumstances, thermosets are processed using a variety of chemicals for curing. If gelation occurs during processing, the polymer becomes unprocessable due to the formation of a cross-linked network. Traditional materials such as metals and alloys, as well as commodity polymers, are still used in these processing procedures.

Engineering Plastics Market Segment Analysis:

The Engineering Plastics Market is segmented by Type, and End-Use Industry. Based on the End-Use Industry, the market is segmented into Automotive & transportation, Electrical & electronics, Industrial & machinery, Packaging, Consumer appliances, Medical, and Others. Automotive & transportation segment is expected to hold the largest market share of xx% by 2027. Interior and exterior furnishings, motor trains, chassis, electrical components, and under-the-hood items all use engineering plastics in the automotive industry. Dashboards, bumpers, seats, body panels, fuel systems, interior trim, under-bonnet components, lighting, exterior trim, liquid reservoirs, and upholstery all use it. Due to current environmental and economic concerns, an increase in demand for lightweight engineering plastic is expected to enhance market growth in the market examined. Automobile makers are introducing more modern plastic materials into their vehicles in order to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency. According to a recent study, every 10% reduction in vehicle weight results in a 6-8 percent reduction in fuel use. A vehicle currently has around 30,000 pieces, with roughly 1/3 of them being constructed of plastic. An automobile is made up of around 39 different types of basic plastics and polymers. According to the OCIA, global light commercial vehicle production capacity grew from 11,843,185 units in 2020 to 13,721,531 units in 2021. In 2021, the output of light commercial vehicles climbed by 16 percent. As a result, a growth in vehicle unit production is expected to boost the demand for engineering plastics. Based on the Type, the market is segmented into Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polyamide (PA), Polycarbonate (PC), Thermoplastic polyesters (PET/PBT), Polyacetals (POM), Fluoropolymers, PEEK, Polyphenylene Sulfide, Polyphenylene Oxide, PMMA, and Others. Polyacetals (POM) segment is expected to grow rapidly at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Polyacetal, often known as polyoxymethylene (POM), is a type of engineering plastic created by formaldehyde polymerization. It is resistant to high temperatures, solvents, and abrasion and has exceptional mechanical, thermal, chemical, and electrical qualities. It possesses excellent electrical properties and is resistant to a wide range of solvents, making it ideal for use in electrical applications. Polyoxymethylene's outstanding qualities make it ideal for use in industrial machinery, electrical and electronics, automotive and transportation, and consumer goods, boosting the engineering plastics market growth.
