Engineering Plastics

US engineering plastic demand will grow 3.5 percent annually through 2010. Gains will be driven by a resurgent electrical and electronics market, the largest outlet for engineering resins, and by increasing per vehicle use in the large motor vehicle market. Polycarbonate and polyesters will offer the best growth prospects among higher-volume resins.

This study analyzes the $8.4 billion US engineering resin industry. It presents historical (1995, 2000 and 2005) demand data and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by resin (e.g., ABS, polycarbonate, nylon, thermoplastic polyesters, polyacetal, fluoropolymers, polyphenylene oxide, polysulfones, polyphenylene sulfide, polyimides); and by market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major producers including GE Plastics, DuPont, BASF, Bayer, Ticona, Solvay, and Dow Chemical.
