Cast Polymers Market

To arrive at the market size for cast polymers, top-down and bottom-up approaches were used. Bottom-up approach was used to estimate the market size from the supply side. Subsequently, top-down approach was used to validate the market size obtained from the bottom-up approach. The report is based on certain assumptions.

Market Ecosystem:

The ecosystem of cast polymers consists of key suppliers of raw materials, including marble dust, pigments used for color, and resins. Raw materials required to manufacture cast polymers include polyester & acrylic resins, calcium carbonate, alumina trihydrate, silica, and natural quartz/stone. The next step involved in the value chain is manufacturing of cast polymers, wherein the manufacturer choses a particular material type that adheres to the specification of composite manufacturers. During the manufacture of cast polymers, in addition to these materials pigments, extenders, fillers, inhibitors, agents, and miscellaneous additives are also used. The next step in the value chain is the distribution, marketing, and sales.

The global cast polymers market size is estimated to be USD 7.98 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 9.99 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2015 to 2020. High growth in construction & remodeling industry, along with the demand for high-quality products, is expected to drive the global cast polymers market during the forecast period.

The solid surface type segment contributed the largest share in the global cast polymers market in 2014 and is expected to remain the largest segment by type during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand of these materials from non-residential constructions such as hospitals and schools owing to their high resistance to biological contamination. Engineered stone is the fastest-growing type segment during the forecast period owing to its increasing demand from residential and non-residential construction and its high performance in comparison to other materials.

Non-residential end-user industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Alumina trihydrate, calcium carbonate, and resins are the major raw materials for cast polymers market. Alumina trihydrate contributed to the largest market share in 2014 due to its versatile properties and comparatively low cost as compared to other materials. Natural stone/quartz material segmented is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Natural stone is mostly preferred due to its lasting durability and prevents scratches on its surface.

The Asia-Pacific region led the global cast polymers market in 2014. Rapid industrialization in the Asia-Pacific region, coupled with the increased demand for non-residential units, such as corporate offices, public toilets, malls and shopping complexes, hospitals, and schools, among others is driving the market for cast polymers.

In recent years, constructions industry has grown considerably. Also, the remodeling industry has taken a new turn. High prices and limited availability of raw materials are expected to restrict the market growth for cast polymers. Owing to technical advancements made in the field of cast polymers, these products are expensive in comparison to the naturally available products and other substitutes such as ceramics and concrete products. Also, the global cast polymers market is dominated by a very few players, which leads to limited availability of cast polymers products.

E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.) has an extensive geographic reach and occupies a leading position in the cast polymers market, while Caesarstone Sdot-Yam (U.S.) is a leading provider of highly qualitative cast polymer products.
