Polycarbonate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

The global polycarbonate market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019. Polycarbonate refers to a group of thermoplastic polymers that are light weight, durable and amorphous in nature. It is synthesized by the polymerization or polycondensation of bisphenol A and phosgene and tends to gradually soften from solid to liquid when exposed to heat. It is a synthetic resin that is used in the manufacturing of safety glass, eye lenses and architectural glazing, semiconductor machinery components and transparent manifolds. It exhibits advantageous properties, such as optical transparency, oxidative and thermal stability and resistance to moisture, chemicals, heat and electricity. Owing to this, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including automotive, transportation, electrical, electronics, construction, packaging, consumer goods and medical.

Rapid industrialization across the globe, along with the growing demand for light weight and impact- and shatter-resistant products, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Polycarbonate resins are mixed with other polymers, such as Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) resins, to manufacture lighting systems, headlamp lenses and exterior and interior components. Furthermore, widespread adoption of hollow polycarbonates for manufacturing thermally insulated consumer electronic devices, such as smartphones, computers, chargers and battery boxes, is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)-based devices, sensors and drones, that are manufactured using polycarbonates, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other factors, widespread utilization of polycarbonate in the agriculture industry to manufacture ultraviolet (UV)-resistant roof panels and sheets in agricultural outbuildings, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities to develop high-performance plastics, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global polycarbonate market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
