The global engineering plastics market is projected to reach USD 108.68 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2016 to 2026.

Engineering plastics find usage in applications such as, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, consumer appliances, industrial & machinery, packaging, and other applications (construction, medical, and so on).

The automotive & transportation application accounted for the largest share of the overall engineering plastics market and is projected to continue throughout the forecast period, both, long term and short term. Engineering plastics are used in automobile manufacturing, as these help in reducing the overall weight and further help in reducing vehicular emissions.

Companies are carrying out intense research & development activities to innovate and develop new products which can open new avenues of applications. Engineering plastics are penetrating medical applications due to the new developments taking place in the field.

Engineering Plastics Market

Growth in the usage of engineering plastics in applications such as automotive and transportation, consumer appliances, and electrical & electronics has increased the global demand for engineering plastics. The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global engineering plastics market in 2015 and is also expected to be the fastest-growing market till 2021. China is expected to account for the largest share in the Asia-Pacific region till 2026. India is expected to register the fastest growth in the engineering plastics market, during the forecast period. In 2015, the U.S. accounted for the largest market for engineering plastics in North America.

The availability of other polymer resins providing stiff competition to engineering plastics is the major restraint in the global market. The high cost of engineering plastics is expected to act as an impediment, as applications where the high performance characteristics are not required, will choose commodity plastics due to their low prices.

Companies have adopted the new product developments, expansions, contracts & agreements, and joint-venture strategies, to expand their market shares and distribution networks in the global engineering plastics market for the forecast period, 2016 to 2026.

BASF SE believes in building sustainable customer bases in different markets with strong support through R&D activities. It is also strengthening its presence in the emerging economies of the Asia-Pacific and other regions through new product developments and the establishment of new production plants. In 2015, it opened a new Ultramid polymerization plant in Shanghai, China.
