Micronized PTFE: A projected value of $868.29 million by 2019, signifying firm annualized growth of 7.06% between 2014 and 2019
Glass is made from all-natural sustainable raw materials. It is the preferred packaging for consumers’ concerned about their health and the environment.Glass packaging provides optimum long-term conservation of the original qualities of food and beverages.Glass can be recycled, is non-permeable and has zero rate of chemical interaction which makes it a suitable packaging material for various applications. The demand for glass packaging is increasing in Asia-Pacific and will continue to increase due to the rising disposable income of the consumers in the region and increasing population especially in China and India. The global glass packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2014 to 2019 to reach a value of $59,814 million.
The global lightweight materials market is growing at a significant rate, driven by the stringent regulations in North America and Europe. The global lightweight materials market was valued at $133.1 billion in 2013, and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2014 to 2019. The market has been segmented into three categories based on the type of material, namely, composites, metals, and plastics.
The anhydride of phthalic acid is obtained from the oxidation of o-Xylene or Naphthalene. The products derived from anhydride have high importance in industries such as plastics, automotive, paint & coatings, electrical & electronics, and others. The demand of phthalic anhydride depends on the demand of its downstream products. Since, these products directly interact with the customers, any change in the consumption pattern of these products gets reflected in the consumption of PA. The regions such as Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East represent growing demand for PA, while in North America and Europe the growth in its demand is expected to be relatively low. The main reason is the toxic profile of phthalic anhydride which may enter the environment by leaching or inhalation. Although, toxicity of phthalic anhydride is the main reason for restrictions on its use, it should be made clear that not all the phthalic anhydride-based products are harmful or toxic at normal level.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used plastics. It is produced by polymerizing vinyl chloride monomers. PVC has an amorphous structure with polar chlorine atoms and possesses fire retarding properties, durability, and oil/chemical resistance. It is added with modifiers to modify its properties according to the end user demand. Various properties of PVC like abrasion resistance, light weight, good mechanical strength, and toughness enable its wide use in construction, automotive, packaging, and the electrical industries. It is widely employed for manufacturing pipes, fittings, profiles, tubes, films, sheets, wires, cables, bottles, and so on.
Polyoxymethylene is an engineering thermoplastic that is derived from formaldehyde. The properties of polyoxymethylene include high dimensional stability, good strength, and high fatigue and impact resistance. These properties make POM a highly preferred material in light weight metal replacing applications in various end-user markets. For its capability of replacing metal in light weight applications, POM has penetrated various segments such as transportation and industrial.
