Market Overview:

The global aliphatic polycarbonate (APC) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The APC market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the APC market is segmented into diffuser grade, clear & reflector grade, and others. Clear & reflector grade held the largest share in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as transparency and optical clarity which are used in various applications such as adhesive tapes, package films, labels & tags, among others.

Global Aliphatic Polycarbonate (APC) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Aliphatic Polycarbonates (APC) are a class of thermoplastic polymers that are derived from carbonic acid. APCs have excellent toughness and impact resistance, making them ideal for use in a variety of engineering applications. Additionally, APCs can be produced in various colors and transparency levels, making them well-suited for use in consumer products.

Diffuser Grade:

The diffuser grade is a type of polycarbonate resin that is produced by the polymerization of ethylene and propylene. It has applications in various industries such as automotive, construction, electrical & electronics, packaging and consumer goods among others. The growth factor for this segment is expected to be high demand from the automotive industry due to its properties such as UV light resistance along with high impact strength which makes it suitable for manufacturing interior parts including dashboardboards and instrument panels.

Clear & Reflector Grade:

Clear & reflector grade polycarbonate is a transparent thermoplastic with high optical clarity and excellent mechanical properties. It offers superior performance in terms of thermal, electrical, and chemical resistance at elevated temperatures. Clear & reflector grade polycarbonate finds application in electronics, automotive components, medical devices as well as other industrial goods owing to its enhanced properties such as impact strength and toughness along with dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures.

Application Insights:

The adhesive application segment led the global aliphatic polycarbonate (APC) market in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The rising demand for self-adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive applications, and hot melt glueing is expected to drive the product demand in this application segment over the next eight years.

Packaging was another prominent segment that accounted for a share of 24.3% of total revenue in 2017 owing to increasing use of plastic packaging materials including clamshells, bottles, flexible containers among others. Moreover, growing consumer awareness regarding sustainable packaging coupled with rising environmental concerns regarding waste disposal is likely to propel industry growth over the coming years.

Other applications include electrical & electronics assembly as well as display windows & walls; however; these segments are anticipated to witness sluggish growth due largely on account of high production costs associated with them which restrict their consumption significantly compared to other regional markets across Asia Pacific.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is projected to account for a revenue share of over 45% by 2030, owing to increasing automotive production in key countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. In addition, rising disposable income coupled with an increase in consumer spending on electronic products is likely to drive product demand further.

The growth of end-use industries such as electrical & electronics has played a crucial role in driving APC demand from Asia Pacific region. Rapid industrialization along with government initiatives aimed at promoting domestic manufacturing activities are some of the factors anticipated to favor regional market growth during the forecast period.

North America accounted for more than 20% share of global revenue due high consumption levels associated with packaging applications and growing automobile production levels across countries like U S A.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive and construction
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of APC over traditional materials
  • Growing investments in R&D to develop new applications for APC
  • Expansion of manufacturing capacities by key players
  • Emerging economies offering potential growth opportunities
