Regional Snapshots

The Asia Pacific is the major market for industrial plastics across the globe and anticipated to retain its dominant position over the forthcoming years. Shifting manufacturing bases of several industries owing to reduced cost of raw material and labor that further reduces the overall production cost and increases the profit ratio to the manufacturers expected to be a major factor that propels the market growth in the region. Further, rising demand for personal transportation system due to rise in the disposable income and purchasing power of the consumer predicted to further drive the market for the Asia Pacific.

Europe market witnesses a slow growth over the past timeframe and expected to recover its growth in the coming years. Stringent emission norms for the industries particularly for the chemical industry expected to be the major factors restricts the market growth in the region. However, significant demand from the automotive industry as a substitute of heavy components is likely to further prosper the market growth in the region.

On the contrary, recent outbreak of COVID-19 in the staring of 2020 anticipated to hinder the product demand primarily in electrical & electronics, automotive, construction, and consumer goods applications. The outbreak has further resulted in the restrictions on supply & transport, halt or slowdown in manufacturing processes, and infrastructure slowdown that expected to have a negative impact on the demand for industrial plastics in the coming years.
