“Increasing demand for commodity plastics in packaging application is driving the growth of the commodity plastics market.”

Commodity plastics are used in various applications such as packaging, construction, consumer goods, automotive, textiles, electronics, medical & pharmaceutical, and others. The growth of the commodity plastics market is primarily driven by their increased demand for packaging and construction applications. Commodity plastics possess excellent tensile strength and can be easily processed due to which these plastics are widely used by packaging products manufacturers. The demand for commodity plastics is increasing in the flexible and rigid packaging applications segment, owing to their affordable costs. However, various regulations on the use of plastics products are acting as a restraint to the growth of the commodity plastics market.

“Increased disposable income is generating the demand for consumer goods which is driving the demand for commodity plastics.”

Increased disposable income of the middle-class families is generating the need for consumer goods such as food containers, plastic utensils, weather-resistant clothing, indoor-outdoor carpeting, and so on. Owing to the increased disposable income, the purchasing power of the middle-class families has increased. High living standards are generating the need for consumer goods, which is further expected to drive the market for commodity plastics. These plastics are widely preferred in consumer goods applications owing to their durability, light weight, corrosion resistance, and low cost.

“Rising demand for commodity plastics in the Asia Pacific region.”

The commodity plastics market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of both value and volume. China and India are the key markets for commodity plastics in the Asia Pacific region. The growth of the commodity plastics market in this region can be attributed to the increased demand for commodity plastics in the packaging and construction applications.
