Plastic Resins Market: Rising Demand and Future Scope till by 2030

The global plastic resins market size is expected to grow from USD 383,305.6 million in 2020 to USD 522,503.4 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.5from 2021 to 2027Plastic is not a material but a family of similar materials with different properties that can be engineered to meet the requirements of a wide variety of applications, including packaging. Plastic resins have a wide range of uses across many industries: packaging, electrical & electronics, automotive, construction, etc. Plastic resins are used in a wide variety of structures. Major advantages of using resins include adapting to various products, good mechanical properties, corrosive liquid resistance, climates, and low shrinkage. Moreover, superior electrical properties, good efficiency at high temperatures, and reasonable adhesion to substrates benefit using plastic resins.

Because of its low weight-to-strength ratio, a plastic resin is predicted to benefit from a rise in demand for lightweight materials in the automobile industry. Furthermore, the worldwide plastic resins market is likely to be fueled by the need for composite materials in pipelines and tanks and oil and gas applications throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, growth is projected to be driven by the rise in plastic resins in automotive, electrical, electronic applications and building. Automotive OEMs have been motivated to embrace resin as a replacement for steel and aluminum to produce automotive parts by regulatory action to minimize gross vehicle weight, increase fuel efficiency, and reduce carbon emissions. Though, high volatility in the prices of raw materials and recyclability issues are estimated to restrain the growth of the global plastic resins market.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Plastic Resins Market

The world is fighting the highly contagious COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe. Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Norway are affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Due to a scarcity of raw materials and supply chain interruptions, several industries have been forced to shut down due to the epidemic. Construction and many other businesses have been halted due to the worldwide lockdown, resulting in a drop in demand for plastic resins. The shutdown of numerous enterprises, notably transportation and supply lines, has harmed the economy of several countries. Demand for the product has been hampered due to the lockout, which has prevented any development.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the chemical industry's development will likely be hampered by a demand-supply imbalance, interruptions in raw material procurement, price instability, and various other issues. Plastic resins are widely utilized in various industries, including manufacturing, packaging, automotive, construction, electrical & electronics, consumer products, etc. These industries experienced a sharp drop in growth rates due to the countrywide shutdown. During the early phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for resin-related consumer items, including packaging and hygiene products, increased quickly and dramatically. However, demand for resin-related consumer items, such as those used in car manufacture, construction, and other industrial categories, has been on the decline for a longer time.

Global Plastic Resins Market Dynamics

DriversIncrease in use of plastics in the automotive industry

With the increase in the production of lightweight vehicles in the automotive industry, the demand for automotive plastics is rising. Strict environmental and safety regulations imposed by governments of several countries have forced automotive OEMs to substitute metal components with polymer components. The use of plastic in vehicles decreases the vehicle's overall weight, thus increasing its fuel efficiency and reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases. In addition, an increase in automotive plastic repairs helps to expand the market size of automotive polymers.

Another factor promoting the automotive plastics market growth is the increasing demand for electric vehicles. Electric cars that rely on renewable energy sources are lightweight and more powerful than traditional vehicles. Moreover, the increased use of polymers in electric vehicles is expected to provide better performance than traditional vehicles. The surge in demand for electric vehicles worldwide is expected to help draw high market revenues over the forecast period.

RestraintsExpensive and complex plastic resin manufacturing process

Despite the success of plastic resins, it is a polymer with a few drawbacks that can prevent it from being used by manufacturers and consumers. Like many other plastics, polymer takes a long time to break down and eventually ends up in landfill sites that run out of space for decades. Incineration, which may result in toxic gas emissions, is another way to dispose of polyethylene. Polyethylene is mainly extracted from petroleum or natural gas, a finite amount of which is present. It takes a large amount of energy to produce polyethylene, resulting in high carbon dioxide emissions, contributing to global warming and climate change. However, most plastic polymers can be technically recycled, but there are many different types to sort through at first, which is costly and complicated.

OpportunitiesUse of PMMA and composites in-vehicle car production

The North America automotive industry has demonstrated substantial growth prospects for composites in different applications. The high cost and lack of a cost-effective manufacturing process for high-volume applications have restricted composite materials in the automotive industry. However, increased focus on vehicle weight reduction and subsequent improvements in efficiency have prompted industries to opt for composites and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) plastics. Over the next five years, industry analysts expect the demand to increase for long fiber reinforced thermoplastic (LFRT) and lightweight reinforced thermoplastic materials in automotive applications.
