Plastic Market: Development Trends, Competitive Analysis and Key Manufacturers Report by 2032


The global plastic market is set to witness an impressive growth rate of 3.7% over the forecasted years of 2022 to 2032. The plastic market size is anticipated to reach a valuation of around US$ 885 Billion by the end of the year 2032 from the current valuation of US$ 695 Billion in 2022.

The main causes of the increased sales of plastic in several economies are the expansion of the ensuing need for ultralight constituents to increase automobile load capacity and decrease the cost of semiconductor devices. Compared to other materials, corrugated plastic has a specific gravity that is 85% lower providing for weight reductions of around 80% and component cost reductions of 30% to 50% when employed in the construction and automotive sectors.

The demand for plastic in infrastructure and building applications would be driven by rising government construction spending, notably in China and India. Additionally, the expanding need for metal substitutes drives an expansion of the use of engineering plastic or composite polymers across a range of sectors.

The plastic market key trends supported by the building industries are projected to decline as a result of strict rules regulating the use and recyclability of traditional plastic materials. In comparison to metal or wood, polymer fittings are often considered sustainable and ecofriendly that got hold of a considerable amount of global plastic market opportunities in the recent past.
