"Automotive & transportation - Biggest application for engineering plastics till 2020"

The global engineering plastics market is witnessing strong growth due to increasing demand from various end-use industries. They are increasingly become popular because of the performance advantage these materials offer. They are increasingly replacing engineering materials such as metal, glass, and wood in several industrial applications. They possess an excellent combination of mechanical, physical, thermal and chemical properties; offers excellent chemical and flame resistance; high temperature stability, good dielectric properties, and good dimensional stability. In the automotive and electrical & electronics industries, there is a high demand for lightweight and smaller components that can operate at higher speed.

The engineering plastics market is segmented into six applications segments, namely, automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, industrial & machinery, packaging, consumer appliances, and others. Among these applications, automotive & transport accounted for largest market share in 2014, in terms of value and volume. Engineering plastics have region specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency. These demands are also governed by the prevailing environmental laws in the particular region. For instance, in Europe and North America where environmental laws are very stringent, environmentally friendly products are in high demand.
