Market Reports: Plastics

Plastics consist of polymerized hydrocarbons. Their technical properties, such as moldability, hardness, break resistance, elasticity, temperature resistance, and chemical resistance, which can be widely varied through the choice of macromolecules, manufacturing processes, and the admixture of additives, are important characteristics of plastics. They are divided into thermoplastics, elastomers, and thermosets according to their mechanical-thermal behavior.

 

Many Plastics Examined in Industry Analyses

Ceresana analyzed both the overall European as well as the global plastics market. Besides complete markets such as engineering plastics, bioplastics, and thermoplastic elastomers, individual plastic types, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), expandable polystyrene (EPS), polypropylene (PP) as well as polyurethane (PUR) and isocyanates (MDI & TDI) were examined. Rubber types such as styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and butadiene rubber (BR) also belong to the group of plastics.
