Market Overview

The Global Thermoplastic Resins Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecasting period (2020-2027).

Thermoplastic resins are raw, unshaped polymers that melt and change state to liquid when heated and turn solid when cooled. They can be repeatedly re-melted and remolded, allowing parts and scraps to be reprocessed.

The global thermoplastic resins market is anticipated to grow at a steady growth rate till 2026 owing to several advantages of thermoplastic resins and increasing adoption of thermoplastic resins into various industry verticals.

Market Growth Drivers and Restraints

Increasing demand for lightweight and naturally sustainable materials and their growing applications with end-user industry is the key driver of the industry.

Moreover, growing adoption of thermoplastic within the automotive industry, increasing demand for automobiles, rising demand for recyclable and fast-curing materials, and growing penetration of composite materials by replacing metals are significant factors boosting the growth of thermoplastic resin market.

Overall, the introduction of ultra-high molecular weight thermoplastic resins would drive the growth of thermoplastic resins industry within next few years.

Thermoplastic resin market looks good with opportunities in various applications such as powertrain system, electrical and electronics, chassis system, interior, exterior, underbody system, and others within the automotive industry. The particular need of the automotive sector such as lightweight and durable material will drive the future demand for thermoplastic resins.

The industry is anticipated to face particular challenges such as regulations to reduce CO2 emissions, crude oil, and naphtha price fluctuations, and product commoditization.

Market Segmentation Analysis

The global market for Thermo Plastic Resins is broadly segmented as resin type, compound type, end-user industry type, and composite type.

By the resin type, the market is segmented as Polypropylene, Polyamide, Polybutylene Terephthalate, Polyphenylene Sulfide, Polycarbonate, and Other Resins.

By compound type, the market is segmented as Short Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, Long Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic, and Glass-Mat Thermoplastic.

The end-user industries segment is segregated as Transportation, Consumer Goods, Electrical & Electronic, and Others. Further, the composite type segment is bifurcated as Glass Fiber-Reinforced Plastics and Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastics.

Regarding resin type, the polyamide is anticipated to remain the dominant resin owing to its short fiber thermoplastic-based applications.

However, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is expected to witness the fastest growth over the next few years, driven by increasing usage of thermoplastic composites in the aerospace, defense, and automotive industries.

Introduction of ultra-high molecular weight thermoplastic and sugarcane-based thermoplastic are some of the important evolving movements that may lead the industry toward higher sustainable growth. For instance, BASF introduced an advanced grade of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) in August 2018, which can considerably improve production of shoe shanks and beautiful shoe parts in high-performance shoes while providing excellent mechanical properties, such as UV resistance.

Geographical Share

The global Thermo Plastic Resins market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and ROW. North America is further divided as U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Europe is divided as Germany, France, UK, and Rest of Europe. China, Japan, India, and Australia are some of the prominent countries considered under the study.

South American Thermoplastic Resin market is majorly driven by growth within Brazil and Argentina. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing market for thermoplastic resins in the composites industry in the coming decade. High production of passenger and commercial vehicles, continuous growth of electronic manufacturing and shift from the developed economies to the developing Asian economies are the primary growth drivers of thermoplastic resin market in the Asia-Pacific's composites industry.
