Global Specialty Polymers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A specialty polymer is a polymer that has been designed for a specific purpose. This may include improving the properties of another polymer, making it easier to process, or providing specific functionality. Specialty polymers are important because they can improve the performance of products made from other polymers.

Engineering Thermoplastics (ET):

Engineering thermoplastics are high performance polymers, which are processed at elevated temperatures (above 200OC) and have a unique combination of properties. They possess excellent mechanical strength, thermal stability & dimensional stability along with being flame retardant.

Major applications include automotive components (fluidic coolants), aerospace components, electrical & electronics housing and appliances as well as medical devices.

High-Performance Thermoplastics (HPT):

High-performance thermoplastics (HPT) are a group of polymers with exceptional heat resistance. They have high melting points and low glass transition temperatures, making them ideal for applications where processing temperature is an important factor. HPT’s physical properties at elevated temperatures make them suitable to be used in the automotive industry as well as electrical & electronics industries.

Application Insights:

Automotive was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Automotive applications include exterior body parts, interior components, power trains, lighting systems and electronics among others. Increasing automotive production across the globe is anticipated to remain a key driving factor for specialty plastics over the next six years.

The use of specialty polymers in consumer goods has been on an upswing since past few years owing to their high durability and low maintenance cost compared with traditional materials used for manufacturing such products. The increasing popularity of home appliances including refrigerators, washing machines along with rising disposable income levels in developing countries like India are expected to be major growth drivers for this segment during future periodicals updates.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global specialty polymers market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing product demand from various end-use industries, such as automotive and electronics. In addition, rising disposable income coupled with expanding population in emerging economies of India and China are expected to drive product demand from consumer goods applications.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe which accounted for a revenue share of 28% in 2017 on account of high manufacturing volume for specialty polymers in this region due to early adoption across several industries including automotive, construction & housing, electrical & electronics among others. Moreover, growing R&D activities related to advanced materials used in various applications are anticipated to fuel regional market growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of specialty polymers over traditional materials
  • Growing investments in R&D by polymer manufacturers to develop new products
  • Proliferation of advanced manufacturing technologies that help reduce production costs
  • Expansion of global trade leading to increased demand for specialty polymers in developing countries
