Increasing demand for plastic compounds driving the market

Increasing plastics demand in construction, automotive and electrical & electronics sectors is expected to be a major factor driving global plastic compounding industry growth. Synthetic polymers such as PVC, PE, PC, PP, and PU have been traditionally used in various applications such as packaging, electronic components, automotive components, toys, furniture and construction materials.

Regulatory intervention to reduce gross vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency and ultimately reduce carbon emissions has driven automotive OEMs to adopt plastics as the substitute to metals such as steel and aluminum for fabricating automotive components. With growing thermoplastic and thermosets demand in automotive component fabrication, plastic compounding is expected to gain prominence due to increasing quality and material specification requirements from automotive OEMs.

Increase in prices of plastic compounds hampering market growth

There are three basic ingredients or raw materials, namely polymers, additives, and fillers, utilized in plastic compounding. Polymers consist of PP (polypropylene), which may be categorized into homopolymers or block copolymers. PE (polyethylene) is also used in compounding, along with certain elastomers. Plastic compound prices have been rising gradually primarily due to fluctuating petrochemical prices, and high substitution potential from its bio-based counterparts.

Oscillating petrochemical prices can hamper the growth of the plastic compounding market during the forecast period. The fluctuating price of crude oil is also likely to have an impact on the price of plastic compounds and hence affect their usage.

Increased used of Polyethylene in the Asia Pacific region a growing trend

Most of the gains will be driven by new ethylene feedstock, including shale gas, coal and bio-based materials. These will give PE – including HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE – an edge; either in terms of price or sustainability. In addition, ongoing development in catalyst technologies will enhance the performance, customization and yield of PE resins.

In regional terms, growth will continue to be driven mostly by Asia Pacific. PE demand will see the largest and steepest rise. China will prompt this increase significantly.

Other countries boosting demand are India and Vietnam. Nevertheless, the growth momentum in this particular region is losing some of its earlier steam. Hence the companies that are the manufacturers of PE will have a decent market share in this region.
