Polycarbonate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The global polycarbonate market reached a value of US$ 9,569 Million in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 13,277 Million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.02% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Polycarbonate is a polyester commonly used in plastic lenses of eyewear, medical devices, automotive components, protective gear, greenhouses, compact disc (CD), digital versatile disc (DVD), Blu-ray, and exterior lighting fixtures. It offers heat resistance and can be combined with flame retardant materials without significant material degradation. It also provides durability, thermal insulation, and light transmission properties. It is lightweight, easy to install, and available in multiple colors, sizes, and shapes, as compared to other polymers.

Polycarbonate is used to protect against the shattering and scratching of electronic products like computers, electrical chargers, fax machines, pagers, connectors, and battery boxes. This, in confluence with the increasing sales of electronics, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. In addition, it is employed in construction materials as it offers protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays. This, in confluence with rising construction activities in industrial areas, is contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, it finds extensive application in automotive components, including lighting, headlamp lenses, interior cladding, dashboards, bumpers, and body panels. This, coupled with the rising need for passenger and driver safety equipment, is strengthening the market growth. Furthermore, polycarbonate is incorporated into medical devices to diagnose and treat various chronic ailments. This, along with the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, is driving the market. Besides this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities to develop high-performance plastics and increasing utilization of polycarbonate in the packaging of baby bottles, furniture, water dispensers, garden equipment, and sporting products are creating a positive outlook for the market.
