The antimicrobial plastic market is projected to register a CAGR of 8.7% (between 2015 and 2020) and is expected to account for a market size of USD 16.17 Billion by 2020. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market of antimicrobial plastic and is projected to retain this position over the next five years; this is due to the increasing plastic consumption and rapid urbanization, which is driving the demand for antimicrobial plastic in the Asia-Pacific region.

The market size of automotive plastics for passenger cars is expected to reach USD 16.17 Billion by 2020 from USD 9.86 billion in 2014, at an expected CAGR of 8.7% between 2015 and 2020. The high growth rate of the industry can be attributed to the increasing consumer awareness regarding the significance of antimicrobial plastic. This is expected to give an impetus to the global demand for antimicrobial plastic in packaging and health care application.

The key driving factors of this market include the growing consumer awareness about health-related infections owing to the increasing medical cases of nosocomial infections and also the epidemic outbreaks of life threatening diseases such as H5N1 Avian influenza and H1N1 Swine flu, in recent times. As a result, the consumer awareness pertaining to the importance of antimicrobials in plastic is growing at a rapid pace. The market is restrained, due to various factors, such as volatility in raw material process, which increases the overall cost of the existing products, majorly affecting the profit margins of the manufacturers.

The intensity of competitive rivalry in the antimicrobial plastic market is moderate-to-high. The antimicrobial plastic market is experiencing high growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the types of antimicrobial plastic used, such as commodity plastic, engineering plastic, and high performance plastic. The high growth potential of the end-user industries for the above mentioned types is driving the market of antimicrobial plastic in Asia-Pacific.

The antimicrobial plastic market has been analyzed in terms of value (USD Million) and volume (Kilo Tons) for five regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. It has been estimated based on its types, such as commodity plastic, engineering plastic and high performance plastic.

The antimicrobial plastic market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.7%, by volume, in the next five years, to reach 5,657.6 KT by 2020. Antimicrobial plastic are a type of polymer material infused with antimicrobial agents and additives such as organic-metallic biocides and arseni-based oxybisphenox arsine (OBPA). In comparison with normal plastic, antimicrobial plastic is more cost-effective and eco-friendly, and is hence used in a variety of applications ranging from health care, packaging food, construction, consumer goods, and automotive parts.

The report covers the antimicrobial plastic market and its trends for applications, such as health care, packaging, consumer goods, automotive, and construction. Health care is the key application of antimicrobial plastic, followed by packaging and consumer goods. This application accounted for 40.0% share of the market in 2014. Health care and packaging applications of antimicrobial plastic are projected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.8%, each, by volume, between 2015 and 2020.

The report covers the antimicrobial plastic market and its trends for types, such as commodity plastic, engineering plastic, and high performance plastic. Commodity plastics are widely used in a wide range of applications such as packaging, pharmaceuticals, and automotive due to their chemical and physical properties, which make it suitable for use in the antimicrobial plastic market. This is followed by engineering plastic and high performance plastic. Commodity plastic accounted for 60.0% share of the market in 2014. The engineering plastic segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.8%, by volume, between 2015 and 2020.

The report covers the antimicrobial plastic market and its trends for five regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The market has been analyzed with respect to fifteen key countries that are China, Japan, India, Germany, Italy, France, U.K., U.S., Canada, Mexico, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Brazil, and Argentina. These countries have been selected based on the existing market reach of automotive plastics and their growth potential. Some of the prominent companies in the market include BASF SE (Germany), Bayer MaterialScience AG (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Lonza Group AG (Switzerland), Parx Plastic BV (The Netherlands), King Plastic Corporation (U.S.), Biocote (U.K.), Milliken Chemical (U.S.), Sanitized AG (Switzerland), and PolyOne Corporation (U.S.). These key players account for a significant share in the antimicrobial plastic market.

Antimicrobial Plastics Market

Asia-Pacific is projected to continue to lead the antimicrobial plastic market till 2020, followed by North America and Europe. Latin America is the fastest-growing market of antimicrobial plastic, due to the increasing demand from the construction, packaging, and consumer goods applications as well as the increasing disposable income and rising young population in the region, which fuels the demand for antimicrobial plastic in the region.
