Engineering plastics are utilized for manufacturing instrument panels, seating materials, airbag retainers, fuel systems, shifter bases, door systems, driver train, pedal boxes, sensor housings, and front end modules for automotive. These components make use of ABS, PC, PA, and POM. The key elements that drive the engineering plastics market growth include rise in trend of reducing vehicle weight, improvement in fuel efficiency, and metal replacement in the construction and electrical & electronics industries. Moreover, growth in the end-user industry namely packaging, building & construction, electrical & electronics, automotive and consumer products is further expected to increase the consumption of engineering plastics. However, fluctuating price of crude oil and regulatory challenges about CO2 emissions hamper the market growth.
According to Shiv Shukla, Research Analyst, Materials & Chemicals Research at Allied Market Research, "Polyamide is expected to emerge as the most lucrative type of engineering plastics owing to its elevated design flexibility and shear resistance properties". He further states, "Consumption of polyamides is highest in Europe; however, Asia-Pacific would closely follow by 2022".
In the year 2015, ABS segment acquired the largest share and is expected to lead during due to its versatile design structure, dimensional stability, mechanical strength, and thermal resistance. The polyamide segment is expected to grow with a high CAGR of 6.7% from 2016 to 2022 owing to increased demand from the automotive sector. In 2015, the automotive application segment accounted for the largest market share of nearly one-fourth.
