The global engineering plastics market has been estimated at USD 89,893.90 million in 2017. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.99% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. PET dominated the global engineering plastics market with nearly 24% share globally, while PEEK segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR through the forecast period.
GROWING POPULARITY OF BIOBASED PET
PET is majorly used in the packaging industry, primarily for packaging of water bottled, food and alcoholic beverages. It is a downstream product of crude oils, but with growing environmental concerns, and depleting oil reserves, engineering plastic manufacturers are shifting toward the development of biobased PET. However, the biobased PET market is still in its growth stage and is commercially available as a partially biobased product. With increasing concerns about the reduction of carbon emissions, government and environmental agencies such as US EPA and European Commission are focusing on creating awareness regarding the usage and benefits of biobased PET.
With the growing demand for engineering plastics, companies are developing products which can be used for new applications. Engineering plastic manufacturing companies, such as BASF, DowDuPont and Bayer, are consistently engaged in RD activities to develop products that are environmentfriendly and comply with regulations. Furthermore, they have been investing in developing new technologies to continually enhance their competitive advantage in the industry.
