Plastic Compounding Market worth over $50bn by 2024

Plastic Compounding Market Size will surpass USD 50 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
 

Plastics usage has increased twentyfold in the past half-century and is expected to double again in the next 20 years. Plastic compounders play a vital role in enhancing the performance of plastic resin with key additives to meet the end-user industry needs. Global plastic compounding market will be propelled by rising automotive industry by 2024. Plastic compounding consumption per vehicle in the U.S. was roughly USD 52 per vehicle in 2016. Currently, an average car consists of around 10-15% plastics of total car weight. The tendency to use plastic in automotive will increase in the forecast timeframe due to government initiatives across the globe to reduce vehicular emissions by reducing automotive weight.
 

Plastic compounding market will witness substantial demand in consumer goods by 2024. Plastics are used in consumer goods for a wide range of applications, including food packaging, furniture, household appliances, toys, etc. Packaging is integral to the delivery of safe, high-quality consumer products. Various household electrical appliances will have substantial demand for plastics in the coming years. PVC is widely used to insulate electric wiring, while thermosetting plastics are used for switches, light fittings and handles. 3D printing applications, innovative packaging techniques for consumer goods and surging demand for bioplastics will be few significant trends driving the global plastic compounding market by 2024.
