The global polycarbonate market reached a value of US$ 9.57 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$ 13.28 Billion by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 6.02% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.



Polycarbonate refers to a group of thermoplastic polymers that are light weight, durable and amorphous in nature. It is synthesized by the polymerization or polycondensation of bisphenol A and phosgene and tends to gradually soften from solid to liquid when exposed to heat. It is a synthetic resin that is used in the manufacturing of safety glass, eye lenses and architectural glazing, semiconductor machinery components and transparent manifolds. It exhibits advantageous properties, such as optical transparency, oxidative and thermal stability and resistance to moisture, chemicals, heat and electricity. Owing to this, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including automotive, transportation, electrical, electronics, construction, packaging, consumer goods and medical.

Rapid industrialization across the globe, along with the growing demand for light weight and impact- and shatter-resistant products, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Polycarbonate resins are mixed with other polymers, such as Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) resins, to manufacture lighting systems, headlamp lenses and exterior and interior components. Furthermore, widespread adoption of hollow polycarbonates for manufacturing thermally insulated consumer electronic devices, such as smartphones, computers, chargers and battery boxes, is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)-based devices, sensors and drones, that are manufactured using polycarbonates, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other factors, widespread utilization of polycarbonate in the agriculture industry to manufacture ultraviolet (UV)-resistant roof panels and sheets in agricultural outbuildings, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities to develop high-performance plastics, are projected to drive the market further.
