New Market Dynamics Shape the Global Plastic Resins Market

Jun 29,2022 | Materials

Plastic resins are obtained by the cracking process, in which hydrocarbons are heated. In this process, larger molecules are broken down into ethylene or propylene, and the amount of these two compounds depends upon the cracking temperature. Propylene has a good chemical resistance and high hardness. Meanwhile, ethylene can be easily ignited. Plastic resins are typically used in the production of caps, containers, and closures used in the packaging industry. Moreover, plastic resins with good impact and scratch resistance are likely to witness a high demand in the packaging industry.

Plastic resins are crucial in the automotive industry as it improves the fuel efficiency and reduces the overall weight of the vehicle. Polypropylene is used for making car bumpers, gas cans, and carpet fibres; meanwhile, polyurethane is used in insulation panels and seat cushions. In this regard, the thriving automotive industry is generating the demand for plastic resins. Meanwhile, plastic resins are durable, lightweight, and scratch resistant. This makes them ideal in the production of bottles, and manufacturing containers, among others. Henceforth, the growing demand for the product from the packaging industry is further invigorating the market. Over the forecast period, the emerging e-commerce industry is anticipated to boost the packaging industry, thereby, invigorating the plastic resins market.
