Key Takeaways from the report:

  • The global plastic compounding market exceeded 26 million tons in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2016 to 2026

  • Polyethylene (PE) emerged as one of the dominant products owing to its high demand in medical applications and special performance characteristics that make it ideal for niche applications such as bulletproof vests

  • Thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPV) are expected to remain the fastest growing products with over 9% CAGR, witnessing high growth in the automotive & industrial machinery segments

  • Automotive is expected to retain its dominance in the industry; however, industrial machinery is expected to overtake the segment in terms of CAGR. The latter is increasingly adopting lightweight and sustainable plastic materials in the form of fasteners, films, equipment components and others.

  • Asia Pacific is likely to remain the dominant region with rapid industrialization in economies such as India, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and others. The region benefits from close geographical proximity to European consumer markets, low labor costs and vast skilled workforce among other factors.

  • The industry is highly fragmented in nature with over one-third of market share occupied by SMEs engaged in plastic compounding. Kingfa emerged as a major player, followed by LyondellBasell and others such as BASF, PolyOne Corporation, SABIC, DuPont, A. Schulman, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Bayer, China XD, Mitsui Chemicals and others.
