Plastic Compounding Market size to cross $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.

Plastic compounding is an essential process which helps in improving the physical properties of the polymer resins by adding reinforcers or fillers. This process results in manufacturing of better plastic products which can withstand extreme conditions, making it suitable in a wide range of industries. One such industry is the automotive sector, which has been increasingly using plastics in various parts of the vehicle to make it light weight. Various regulations have also been implemented in different parts of the world regarding vehicle weight reduction. This will further boost the need for advanced plastics in the automotive industry. Plastic usage in the automotive industry would rise in the coming years as vehicle weight reduction helps in achieving fuel efficiency.
