Plastic Compounding Market Size Estimation, Industry Share Analysis, Top Key Players, Business Opportunity and Future Forecasts to 2023

Global Plastic Compounding Market: Information by Product (Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polyethylene Terephthalate, and Others), Application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Building & Construction), Region—Forecast till 2023

Market Analysis:

The Global Plastic Compounding Market is expected to touch USD 7, 62, 472.7 million at a striking 6.03% CAGR over the forecast period (2017-2023). The process of compounding is used for converting the base resin into the desired plastic which is more effective, uniform and usable in different applications. Traditionally plastics have been utilized in numerous applications including construction materials, electronic components, furniture, toys, packaging and automotive components. The plastic compound manufacturing includes three raw materials or ingredients- Plastic Compounding fillers, plastic compounding additives and plastic compounding polymers. This process allows use of polymer variants namely PP (Polypropylene), PE (Polyethylene) and PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) in the creation of an array of products. Based on the effective utilization of compounding methods, plastic has succeeded in emerging as a viable substitute to metal and glass.

There are many factors that is fueling the growth of the Plastic Compounding Market. The different market trends and factors in this market according to an analysis performed by Market Research Future (MRFR) include growing alternative of alloys and metals with plastic counterparts that are lightweight, advancement in technologies, increase in the need for polyethylene in transportation and packaging applications, its increasing demand in consumer goods, automotive components and electrical components, increasing demand for lightweight and high performance vehicles from users, stringent norms taken by the auto regulation authorities towards reduction in weight and efficiency improvement of vehicles and the trend of using recycled and bio-based plastic.
