Custom Thermoplastic Compounding - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for custom compounded thermoplastics will rise 3.2 percent annually to 10.6 billion pounds in 2019, valued at nearly $19 billion. The construction market will grow the fastest, nearly twice the pace of the next fastest growing market, wire and cable. Compounded thermoplastic PVC will continue to offer the best growth opportunities.

This study analyzes the 9.1 billion pound US custom compounded thermoplastic industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by resin (e.g., PVC, engineering thermoplastics, polypropylene, polyethylene, TPEs, polystyrene) and market (e.g., construction, motor vehicles, consumer and medical, electrical and electronic equipment, insulated wire and cable).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 37 industry players, including PolyOne, A. Schulman, and Ampacet.
