Polycarbonate Market is Booming Worldwide | Entec Polymers, RTP Company, LG Chem, Trinseo

Published Via 11Press : According to HTF MI, The “Global Polycarbonate Market: Industry Trends, Size, Growth, Share, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2029” From 2023 to 2028, the global polycarbonate market is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%, growing from USD 20.2 billion in 2023 to USD 36.8 billion in 2028.

Polycarbonate is a tough thermoplastic polymer that has several applications. It’s a transparent, amorphous material known for its high optical clarity, impact resilience and heat resistance. Polycarbonate is suitable for usage in the electrical and electronics sectors because of its high electrical insulating characteristics. It can be readily molded and formed into a variety of forms, allowing for complicated patterns and personalization. Polycarbonate is used in a variety of items, including vehicle components, electrical enclosures, consumer electronics, building materials, packaging, and medical equipment. The polycarbonate market is distinguished by the wide range of end-use sectors it serves, as well as the growing need for lightweight, robust, and ecologically friendly materials. Polycarbonate is becoming a more popular material choice due to developments in processing processes and the development of increased features like UV resistance and flame retardance.
