COVID-19 impact on global polycarbonate sheets market

The global polycarbonate sheets market is expected to witness a moderate decrease in its growth rate in 2020-2021, as the solid, multiwall, and corrugated polycarbonate sheets used in building & construction, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, and aerospace & defense industries will witness a significant decline in its demand.  

The market has been affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, as there has been decline in demand from building & construction, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, and aerospace & defense industries. New construction and aftermarket have also been adversely affected with the pandemic. Construction activities were completely shut down initially but in third quarter these activities were granted permission to operate with COVID-19 operational measures. Availability of workforce and raw material supply & prices are the biggest challenges in the industry after unlocking. Raw material sector have been adversely impacted due to pandemic, which is expected to decline the growth of polycarbonate sheets market.

Polycarbonate Sheets Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing demand from end-use industries

The applicability of polycarbonate sheets in various end-use industries is increasing owing to their exceptional physical and chemical properties. Thermoplastic polymers are highly efficient and preferred in the automotive industry because of the growing demand for lightweight, high performance, and recyclable materials for exterior and interior parts applications.

Governments of various emerging countries, such as China and India, are increasingly investing in infrastructure development, leading to a rise in construction activities in these countries. An increase in the number of construction projects has led to the growth in demand for roofing solutions in both residential and industrial construction sectors. Thus, the increase in demand for transparent roofing products from the building & construction industry is projected to drive the growth of the polycarbonate sheets market.

Polycarbonate sheet is the most favored material in the production of optical discs, such as CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs. Urbanization and the growing demand for better home video entertainment, especially in developing countries with slower internet speed, have led to higher consumption of content through Blu-ray discs. The demand for optical media-grade polycarbonate sheets has also increased in these countries.

Restraint: Environmental impacts of polycarbonate sheets

Polycarbonate sheets are increasingly used in different applications owing to their excellent properties. However, they are not very environmentally-friendly as they contain bisphenol A, which is not suitable for application in the food industry. These sheets are not bio-degradable and hence are considered a threat to the environment. Polycarbonate sheets are used to manufacture CDs, DVDs, automotive components, and building roofing systems, and the accidental dumping of these polycarbonate sheet waste materials in river beds or sea poses a serious threat to aquatic life.

The difficulty faced in the recycling of polycarbonate materials is also a concern. The Society of the Plastics Industry adopted a system of assigning Resin Identification Code (RIC) for implementation in the recycling of plastics. The RIC code of polycarbonate materials is 7, which implies that these materials are difficult to recycle. Moreover, recycled polycarbonate sheets show a lower impact resistance compared to newly manufactured polycarbonate sheets.

Opportunity: Increase in demand for billboards and ID card printing

The manufacturing and fabrication of glow signboards and ID cards underwent technological advancements. For example, laser engravings are now used to store information on cardholders, and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) embedded into ID cards to help in the automatic identification and tracking of cardholders. These cards are manufactured using a wide range of plastics, including polycarbonate sheets. Polycarbonate sheets are preferred in the manufacture of ID cards as they are durable and temperature-resistant. These properties make polycarbonate sheet-based ID cards more effective for use in various working conditions or environments.

The suitability and use of polycarbonate materials in ID cards serve as an opportunity for the polycarbonate sheets market in South America, Africa, and Asia that are amending social security cards and other mandatory governmental cards. In addition to ID cards, polycarbonate sheets are also used in glow sign boards for different exterior and interior applications as these materials are lighter and more durable.

Challenge:  Fluctuating raw material prices

Price and availability of raw materials are the major factors affecting the price of end products. Crude oil is among the major raw materials used in the production of polycarbonate. In recent years, volatile crude oil prices have impacted the prices of polycarbonate sheets. The suppliers of polycarbonate sheets are affected by price-sensitive customers and import threats. Most raw materials are petroleum-based and are vulnerable to fluctuations in the commodity market. Oil prices have been highly volatile in recent times, thus posing a major challenge for the manufacturers of polycarbonate sheets.

In terms of value, the solid segment is projected to account for the largest share of the polycarbonate sheets market, by type, during the forecast period.

Solid polycarbonate sheets are often used in place of glass across various applications as they provide extraordinary impact resistance and durability. These sheets are also lightweight in comparison to glass and are very efficient in light transmission. The impact strength of these sheets is 200 times more than common glass and about ten times stronger than toughened glass. However, the weight of these sheets is only one-half of the glass of the same volume. These properties make solid polycarbonate sheets suitable for lighting applications, such as lamp boxes, hood lighting, and industrial shops. Solid polycarbonate sheets are ideal for various applications such as barrel vault roofing, roof lights, and glazing, as polycarbonate sheets are lightweight in comparison to glass. Clear, translucent, or opaque polycarbonate sheets are also ideal for safety glazing applications, with excellent fire resistance.

Building & construction is projected to be the largest end-use industry.

The building & construction industry is projected to be the largest end-use industry segment of the polycarbonate sheets market during the forecast period. Polycarbonate sheets offer desirable physical properties, such as high strength, excellent uniformity, and increased ductility. Moreover, these are lightweight and easy to use. Architectural designers prefer polycarbonate sheets as building materials over other substitutes because these sheets help reduce construction time, lower overall construction cost, and enable the execution of innovative structural ideas. The construction industry is growing at a high pace in the APAC region, owing to high industrial growth in the region. Emerging economies offer lucrative growth opportunities for the construction end-use industry segment of the polycarbonate sheets market.

The APAC region leads the polycarbonate sheets market in terms of value.

APAC comprises two high-growth economies-China and India. In this report, the polycarbonate sheets market in the APAC region has been studied for China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the Rest of APAC. The region is the most promising market for polycarbonate sheets, and this trend is projected to continue in the coming years as well. Increasing production by the manufacturing sector to cater to the domestic demand for high-quality products and rising exports from the region are factors expected to lead to the growth of the APAC polycarbonate sheets market. Moreover, the rising number of end-use industries in the region is also leading to innovations and developments in the field of polycarbonate sheets, thereby fueling the growth of the APAC polycarbonate sheets market.
