Over the past few years, the use of plastics has increased tremendously, and is presently used in majority of the market sectors such as electronics, packaging, automobile and construction among others. Growing demand for automobiles coupled with the increasing consumption of plastics in each vehicle manufactured is expected to be one of the primary factors driving the molded plastics market over the next few years. Other key factors such as the increasing demand for plastics in mobile phones and the growth of the mobile phone industry and increasing consumption of plastics in household care products such as cosmetics are expected to boost the demand for molded plastics over the next few years.
However, environmental concerns associated with the manufacture and wastage of plastics and fluctuating prices of crude oil are key factors that are expected to hamper the demand for plastics over the next few years. Increasing use of plastic pipes for transmission of oil and gas is expected to provide opportunities for the growth of the market in the next few years.
Molded polyethylene was the largest product segment in the market, accounting for over 25% of the market share in 2012 and is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Polyethylene is majorly used for packaging of various goods such as food, beverages, medical devices and other equipment. Growth of the packaging industry, particularly in China, Brazil and India, is expected to augment the demand for polyethylene over the next few years.
Demand for molded plastics was the highest from packaging in 2012. However, consumables & electronics is expected to be the fastest growing application segment in the market over the next few years. The growth of the electronics market due to rise in disposable income of consumers and increasing consumption of plastics in several electronic goods due to its superior properties is expected to boost the demand for molded polymers over the next few years. The segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2013 to 2019.
Due to the high prevalence of automobile, packaging and electronic industries in Asia Pacific, the region dominated the global market in 2012. Rise in disposable income of consumers is expected to be the primary factor driving the growth of these industries in the near future. In addition, the increasing consumption of plastics in these industries is expected to fuel the demand for molded plastics in this region over the next few years.
Demand for molded plastics in Asia Pacific is expected to be over 65.00 million tons by 2019. Demand for molded plastics is expected to be significantly high in developing economies of Latin America due to the upcoming automobile manufacturing industry in this region. These factors are expected to contribute significantly to the global molded plastics market during the forecast period.
