Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Segment Analysis – By Type
Non-Threaded Plastic Fasteners segment held the largest share of more than 45% in the Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market in 2020. Non-Threaded Plastic Fasteners such as rivets, washers, clips, wire bundlers & ties, and grommets are widely used across various building and construction applications. For instance, wire bundlers & Ties are used in cable management due to their compact size, lightweight, and high strength. A non-threaded plastic fastener like rivets has advantages over threaded bolts, as they do not loosen up when subjected to vibration and secures joints with short clamp length. Due to this property the non-threaded plastic fasteners such as grommets & rivets are used to support ducts, protect wires from sharp steel edges and window blinds. Therefore, due to the wide application and advantages over threaded fasteners, there is a high demand for Non-Threaded plastic fasteners in the construction sector.

Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Segment Analysis – By Manufacturing Process
Injection molding segment held the largest share of more than 25% in the Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market in 2020. Plastic injection molding is the most common method of manufacturing plastic fasteners like Flange nuts, Cable ties, Push-in clips, and Wall plugs. In this process, melted plastic is injected into a specific mold. Then the plastic cools in the mold, hardens, and takes the shape of the mold. Moreover, this process enhances the strength of the final product, helps in achieving faster production, and reduces the wastage of raw material. Furthermore, this process is very cost-effective, which helps in bringing down the overall cost of the final product and also enables to manufacture of extremely complex parts such as screws, thread rods, and rivets which are commonly used in building construction. Therefore, due to the properties and advantages, injection moldings are widely used in manufacturing plastic fasteners.
Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Segment Analysis – By Application
Flooring segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market in 2020. Plastic Fasteners are widely used to secure flooring and keep the floor intact. Even though metal nails are cheap to lay down the flooring layer but they can cause squeaking over a period of time due to corrosion. But with the help of plastic fasteners, one can avoid this problem due to their unique design and corrosive resistant properties. The plastic fasteners also work for different kind of wooden floorings such as solid, engineered, and some bamboo wood floors. Moreover, plastic fasteners are also used in vinyl and laminate flooring. Therefore, an increase in the use of wooden flooring in the construction industry will drive the demand for plastic fasteners. For instance, as per the Direct China Chamber of Commerce (DCCC) report in 2019, China revenue in the wood flooring segment was $13,629m in 2019 and the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2019-2023.
Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Segment Analysis – By Industry Vertical
Residential Building segment is projected to witness the highest growth of 6.7% in the Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the developing construction sector in developing economies such as China and India along with changing individual life style. Moreover, the introduction of flagship program by the Government of India Such as “Smart Cities and Housing for All” is also driving the growth of residential buildings in the region, which in turn also contributes to the market growth. For instance, as per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) report in 2020, in India, housing sales reached 2.61 lakh units in 2019 across major cities. Moreover, the Indian Government has created an Affordable Housing Fund (AHF) in the National Housing Bank (NHB) with an initial corpus of Rs 10,000 crore (US$ 1.43 billion) to promote the housing sector in the country.

Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Drivers
Superior Properties over Metal Fasteners
One of the major factors that drive the market growth are the superior properties of plastic fasteners over traditional metal fasteners. Typically, metal fasteners corrode and develop rust over time, especially when exposed to moisture or salty conditions. And corrosion can lead to degradation. Unlike metal fasteners, plastic fasteners do not corrode as they are made from a thermoplastic material such as Polyvinyl chloride, Polypropylene, and Nylon. These plastics do not absorb water and are resistant to corrosive substances. Moreover, plastic fasteners do not conduct electricity, which makes them an ideal choice to be used in the electrification of buildings or structures. Furthermore, plastic fasteners are relatively cheaper than metal fasteners that help in decreasing the overall product cost, which is beneficial for the end-users. Therefore, the above properties are driving the demand for plastic fasteners.
Increasing Construction Activities in the Middle East Region
The growth of construction industry in the Middle East region especially in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia drive the market growth. Whereas, depletion of oil & gas resources in the region has forced the governments to shift focus and dependence from oil & gas to others industry including the building and the construction sector, which is driving the market growth. For Instance, as per the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) report in 2019, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is aiming to reduce the hydrocarbon sector share in GDP from 30% in 2020 to 20% by 2021. Moreover, the introduction of several construction project by the Saudi Arabia Administration such as Qiddiya Entertainment city, Amaala project, Al Widyan, and Jabal Omar are also contributing towards the growth of the construction industry in the region. Additionally, as per BNC Network, a private company, UAE invested a total of $53.8 billion in the construction industry in 2019, which rose by $1.2 billion in 2020 to reach $55 billion. Therefore, an increase in investment in the construction sector will further drive market growth.
Building and Construction Plastic Fasteners Market Challenges
Price Volatile and Availability of Metal Fasteners
The plastic fasteners are made of materials like nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene, and others, which are crude oil-based products. Therefore, any fluctuation in crude oil prices will adversely affect the price of this material, which will further deter the market’s growth. For instance, as per Macro Trends data, the crude oil prices were highly volatile for November 2006 – September 2018, and were ranging from as high as $166.46 per/barrel to $37.02 per/barrel. Such fluctuation in crude oil prices will deter the growth of the market. Moreover, the fasteners markets are already filled with the strong presence of metal and alloy fasteners such as stainless-steel fasteners, aluminum fasteners, brass fasteners, and silicon bronze fasteners and these metal fasteners are already being widely used in building & construction for decades now. Therefore, the growth of plastic fasteners is quite challenging in the building & construction market.
