The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Plastic Compounding Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the global plastic compounding market size reached US$ 64.9 Billion in 2022. Plastic compounding is the process of blending plastics with additional materials, such as fillers, fibers, additives, and colorants, to change the physical and aesthetic characteristics of plastics. It involves various stages, such as determining additives ratio, mixing via twin-screw extruders, cooling, and cutting and packaging. It can also help improve the conductivity, toughness, and flame and wear resistance of plastics. Owing to these benefits, plastic compounding finds extensive applications in the healthcare, electronics, and transportation industries across the globe.
Global Plastic Compounding Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of plastics in the automotive industry. Nowadays, plastic is widely replacing heavy materials, such as metal and glass, as it helps in reducing the weight of the vehicle. In addition, plastics developed through plastic compounding are widely used to manufacture furniture, toys, pipes, seals, floor coverings, cables, appliances, and profiles for windows and doors, which represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, materials like polypropylene (PP) find extensive applications in stationery, textiles, loudspeakers, laboratory equipment, and food packaging containers. This, coupled with the expanding aerospace industry, is contributing to market growth. Moreover, rapid industrialization and significant growth in the construction sector are also creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 93.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
