Global Transparent Plastics Market is projected to Experience an Impressive CAGR during the Forecast Period :

Pune, India, March, 2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the Global Transparent Plastics Market.


Transparent plastics are flexible or moldable when placed above a specific temperature and returned to a solid state upon cooling. These plastics boast various properties like low electrical and thermal conductivity, recyclability, lightweight, shock resistance, water resistance, durability, corrosion and chemical resistance, and others. The global transparent plastic market is slated to experience an impressive CAGR over the forecast period of 2022-2030.

The market is primarily driven by the proliferating demand for plastics from the packaging industry, particularly from the F&B packaging industry. This demand can be attributed to the plastic’s moisture barrier, corrosion resistant nature, and micro-organisms repelling characteristics. All these aids to provide an improved shelf life of the food products. Transparent plastics are even used extensively in the pharmaceutical and FMCG packaging industry, which is most likely to propel the demand of the market in the forthcoming years. Moreover, the increasing usage of these products in electric vehicles due to its reliable insulation properties, high mechanical properties, safe operations, and others is also believed to have a major positive impact on the market growth of transparent plastics. As from the environmental point of view, the burgeoning growth of electric vehicles globally is a major factor that is expected to drive the market. However, amidst all these, the fluctuating state of the raw material prices can go on to pose a challenge to the market and hamper its growth trajectory during the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

The transparent plastics market is segmented on the following basis: polymer type, type, and end-user industry.

By polymer type, the market comprises polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polycarbonate (PC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and others. The PET segment is anticipated to be the most dominant of the various polymer types due to its shatterproof, recyclable, and water & moisture resistant nature. These properties make it highly ideal for bottling and packaging purposes.

By type, the market divides into flexible and rigid. The flexible type holds the highest market share due to its low cost, customizable nature, and sustainability. Add to this, flexible packaging boasts reusable capability in addition to features such as zip locks and spouts, making it the preferred choice in terms of convenience.

By end-users, the market includes electrical & electronics, building & construction, packaging, consumer goods, automotive, and others. The packaging segment is the most dominant market due to the increasing demand from the F&B packaging industry.

Regional Analysis

The global geographical segmentation of the transparent plastic market covers five regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Asia-Pacific dominates the global regional market for transparent plastics as per the market study in 2016. This is primarily due to the increasing demand for the product from various major end-user industries like construction, consumer goods, automotive, electronics, and packaging. Changing lifestyle of consumers, rapid rate of industrialization, and the increasing per capita income of individuals are stimulating the growth of these end-user industries. This, in turn, is increasing the demand for transparent plastics.

North America holds the second spot in terms of market share due to the reviving automobile and construction industries and a high demand from the food packing industry. The regional market is expected to grow further due to the growing demand for lightweight automotive parts.

The European region is said to grow in a rapid fashion due to the high production and sales volume of automotive parts across the Western European nations like the UK, Germany, France, and others. Latin America is also expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period due to the growing automotive industry across various Latin countries. The Middle East & Africa market is expected to garner high demand for these plastics due to the increasing construction and infrastructural activities in the Gulf nations.
