Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic material that is commonly used polymer due to its greater mechanical, chemical, and physical properties. Growing demand from the electronics & electrical industry due to its electric and heat insulation coupled with flame retardant properties drives the market for Polycarbonate. Replacement of bisphenol A with glucose derivatives in the production of polycarbonate is also expected to drive the market.

In terms of production and consumption of polycarbonate, the Asia-Pacific region was found to be dominating the market globally owing to the huge presence of end-user industries in the region.

The global market for polycarbonate is highly consolidated with the top 5 manufacturers accounting for about 75% of the market share. In 2019, the major players in the market were Covestro AG, SABIC, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Lotte Chemical Corporation, and Teijin Limited among others.
