World Solid Surface & Other Cast Polymers

As Quoted In ICIS

Global demand for cast polymers is projected to increase 8.7 percent annually through 2014. About sixty percent of the gains will be from China, with its quickly developing domestic cast polymer industry and considerable construction sector. Engineered quartz and marble will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the 169 million square meter world cast polymer industry, with forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (solid surface materials, engineered stone, gel-coated composites), application (e.g., residential countertops, nonresidential countertops, sinks), world region and for 18 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players.
