Engineering plastics are known for properties such as high dimensional stability, heat & chemical resistance, and good mechanical strength. Different types of engineering plastics consist of individually unique properties, making them the material of choice in various end-user applications. The demand for lighter, flexible and durable material has helped engineering plastics to penetrate into industries such as automotive & transportation, consumer & appliances, electrical & electronics, industrial & machinery, packaging, others. Engineering plastics are primarily used as replacements of traditional materials, including metal and wood, in different end-user industries.

The global engineering plastics market valued to be $53,580.7 million in 2013, which is estimated to reach about $79,026.6 million in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8.0% from 2013 to 2018. The demand in the global market grew at a high rate even after the recent economic slowdown in 2008. This demand is expected to grow at a promising rate due to the increasing usage of engineering plastics as replacement of metal, wood and other materials. China shared about 31.1% of the global engineering plastics demand in 2013. Asia-Pacific is the leader in consumption and revenue generation followed by Western Europe in the global market.

The engineering plastics market is witnessing a healthy growth due to its application as a substitute for metal. Another factor for its popularity among various end-user industries is its ability to withstand high temperatures and resistance against chemicals. Consumer & Appliances market is the biggest end-use market of engineering plastics; however in the recent years the use of engineering plastic is gaining popularity in the automotive & transportation industry and is being used in the several interior, exterior and under-the-hood applications. Growing demand from developing countries, due to increase in disposable income of the rising middle class, is expected to drive the growth rate for engineering plastics in the Asia-Pacific region. The increased usage in automobile & transportation, due to strict regulations, poses as an opportunity for the growth of engineering plastics in this end-user segment.

Increasing R&D efforts are expected to ensure that the newer applications and better grades of engineering plastics will be developed for various end-use markets in the coming future. Engineering plastics market is driven by replacing traditional materials such as wood and metal, which donít possess a good weight to strength ratio. Increasing popularity in the automotive & transportation industry, medical industry, and building & construction industry assures the growth of engineering plastics in the long-term future.

The global engineering plastics market valued to be $53,580.7 million in 2013, which is estimated to reach about $79,026.6 million in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8.0% from 2013 to 2018. The Asia-Pacific region led the global engineering plastics market; it contributed nearly 42.5% of the total revenue in 2013. China was the global leader in engineering plastics consumption, followed by U.S.; together both these countries consumed 46.4% of the global consumption. The Indian engineering plastics consumption is expected to grow at 7.3% from 2013 to 2018.
