New Research Report - Global Polycarbonate Plastic Market 2017-2021

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: FORMOSA CHEMICALS & FIBRE CORPORATION, Idemitsu Kosan, Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics, TEIJIN, and Trinseo.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing investment in R&D. The growing competition in the global polycarbonate plastic market in recent years has exerted pressure on manufacturers to add value to their product offerings through increased investment in R&D. The resultant increase in technological developments and focus on R&D have led to new product innovations with polymers that are more functional, cost effective, and sustainable, thereby enabling the key players in the market to differentiate their products through enhanced performance.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing popularity of thermoplastics against conventional materials. Thermoplastics such as polycarbonate plastic are increasingly becoming a substitute for conventional materials such as metals, glass, and wood. The easy availability and cost benefit are increasingly making plastics an appropriate alternative to traditional materials, including glass, wood, stainless steel, and ceramics.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is fluctuation in crude oil prices. Crude oil is the major raw material source for polycarbonate plastic. The prices of raw materials such as polymers and resins have been fluctuating since 2005. Thus, the prices of these materials vary in tandem with natural gas and crude oil prices. The fluctuating cost of raw materials used in the manufacturing of polycarbonate plastic is a major challenge for the global polycarbonate plastic manufacturers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
