DUBLIN, June 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Electronics and Consumer Goods Plastics Market Analysis By Application (Household Appliances, Consumer Small Appliances, Consumer Electronics, Lighting Equipment, Toys, Sports Shoes, Jewelry), And Segment Forecasts, 2014 - 2025" report to their offering.
The global electronics and consumer goods plastics market is expected to reach USD 53.5 billion by 2025
Growing demand for plastics in consumer gadgets manufacturing owing to their lightweight, low cost and superior impact and corrosion resistance is expected to propel growth.
The major industry players including BASF SE, Bayer AG, DuPont, and Exxon Mobil Corporation, are engaged in manufacturing raw materials as well as plastics for end-use applications. Whereas, the players including LG Group and Honeywell are integrated across the complete value chain from the raw material supply to the production of consumer goods.
Rising consumer demand for environmental friendly plastics is expected to compel the manufacturers to divert their focus to the production of bio-based and degradable product over the forecast period. The companies in the electronics and consumer goods plastics industry are expected to establish strategic partnerships with end-use industries to maintain their customer base and the foothold in the market.
Increasing raw material prices and strong foothold of the existing players in the market are expected to be the key factors challenging the entry of new players. Growing concerns towards e-waste management coupled with stringent government regulatory framework for plastic waste disposal is likely to hamper product demand over the projected period.
Further key findings from the report suggest:
- The demand in consumer electronics industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9%, owing to the increasing plastic usage for manufacturing for manufacturing electronic gadgets such as smartphones, laptops, CD players, TVs and computers
- Household appliances accounted for 23.9% of the total revenue generated by the industry and is expected to grow on account of increasing demand for product for manufacturing structures and bodies of washing equipment, refrigerators, and air conditioners
- The demand for plastics in winter sports was valued at USD 1.62 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow on account of rising product penetration to replace traditional wood and metal sports equipment to gain superior performance, durability, and lightweight
- Asia-Pacific was the largest market, accounting for 37.9% of the overall demand, owing to robust growth of end-use industries including consumer electronics, appliances, sporting goods, and toys, especially in China, Japan, and India
- Rapid growth of electronics industry in Mexico owing to high investments, low manufacturing cost and increasing exports by the country in the international market is expected to drive demand for plastics in the North America
- In July 2015, Sharp Corporation launched Aquos Crystal, a new smartphone which uses bio-based engineering plastic for manufacturing its front panel. The bio-based plastic, Durabio, employed for this purpose was developed by the Mitsubishi Chemical and offers high heat, weather, and impact resistance
