Recent News

Moreover, Covestro AG, in February 2023, produced Makrolon 3638 polycarbonate for healthcare and life sciences applications, including bio-pharmaceuticals packaging plastic bags and bottles which are used as drug delivery systems, cosmetic devices or wellness wearables, single-use containers, among others.

For example, in August 2022 glass, filled polypropylene grades – SABIC PP compound G3430X & SABIC PP compound G3440X – were introduced. They provide better performance and manufacturing capability to meet demanding requirements for automotive under-the-hood parts, look and feel parts, and interiors.

Consequently, in February 2022, BASF announced that it would market various PA66 compounds and polyphthalimide polymers like Solvay’s specialty Ultramid products following its acquisition of Solvay’s PA66 business. Technyl engineering plastics sold under BASF would still go by the reliable name Ultramid. A whole range of plastics with global customers includes PA66 compounds & Ultramid One J-PA66/6T based on PPA. Hence, BASF will enable its customers to realize future-oriented plastics solutions for their diverse applications, including consumer and household electronics, autonomous cars and e-mobility.

September in September 2021 Solvay announced the new thermoplastic composites (TPC) production plant at its site in Greenville, South Carolina.

Likewise, US-based Royal DSM revealed in February 2020 that it is refurbishing and expanding its high-performance materials compounding facility located in Evansville, Indiana. As a part of this initiative DSM will convert the factory for producing next-generation state-of-the-art materials like bio-based thermoplastics. These are essential factors driving the growth of the market over the projection period.
