Plastic Compounding Market to Witness Highest Growth in CAGR 6.71% by 2027


The plastic compounding market is pegged at more than US$ 104 Bn by the end of the forecast period (2020 – 2027). The report provides the overall revenue from 2016 to 2027, considering 2020 as the base year and 2027 as the forecast year.

The global plastic compounding market size was valued at US$ 58.79 billion in 2019 and is projected to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 6.71% during the period 2020 to 2027.

Plastic compounding involves blending of plastics with additives in the molten phase. In this process of compounding characteristics and properties are altered to match the specification of particular application. The end product produced with this process is known as compound or composite. Polyethylene Terephthalate is the plastic utilized for producing bottle containers employed for carbonated beverages and packaged water. As a raw material, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is knows as a robust, lightweight flexible, safe, non-toxic material which is 100% recyclable. Due to these properties it has attained extensive acceptance. All this advantages in turn are projected to spur the plastic compounding market growth during coming years.

Growing demand of design, more durable, necessity for lightweight and low emission materials are some of the factors that are pushing plastics and polymer sector to cultivatenovel and inventive materials. Polymer compound and material improvementoccurs in each stage of polymer research and development process to manufacture materials with divers equalities, to the base material or to create material with anticipated properties with the help of multiple additives.

Regional Snapshots

In 2019, Asia Pacific occupied majority of the revenue share of the global plastic compounding market which was around 42%. This growth is on account of augmented applications in numerous sectors including consumer goods, automobiles, electronics, packaging, and construction among others. This region attracted several manufacturers due to low cost labor, economical manufacturing units set up, and cheap raw resources. Certain noticeable players in Asia Pacific have introduced innovative products and broadened their business units. Europe has also appeared as rapidly growing market for plastic compounding. Germany, France, Russia and UK, are the some of the keyrevenue generating markets in this region. Different federal level agencies including European Commission and European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) have pigeonholed rigorous environmental guidelines related to the consumption and production of the materials. These regulations are pushing players to improve processes and to advance ecological products and technologies.

Developing nations including Mexico are likely to profit from mounting building and construction expenditure and preference of users for using lightweight and maintainable building materials instead of conventional materials.

Key Players & Strategies

Global plastic compounding market is extremely fragmented with more than 60% share captured by SMEs. Players are speedily intensifying their fabrication competences to amalgamate their market status. This industry has observed noteworthy capacity developments in China due toadvent of standalone independent compounders. Backward integration is one of the foremost industry-wide drifts in the compounding business that is also happening in other facets of the plastics sector.

Strategic acquisitions and new production facilities are also identified as major factors that will drive market growth. Continuously rising requirement for resins, polymers, and plastic compounds from multiple end-user sectors including construction, automotive, healthcare, and packaging, consumer and electronics industries among others are further pushing the market growth. Suchrising demand for plastic compounds has fortified market participants to develop their market presence with the help of strategic mergers and acquisitions and starting new fabrication facilities. For example, LyondellBasell acquired A. Schulman Inc. in order to upsurge their resin and plastic compounds production. Likewise, RTP Company startednew-fangled production facilities in the Poland and US and are scheduling to surge their manufacturing capability of its current facility in Wisconsin, U.S.
