LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) market report. This research report also lists three other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
The global PMMA market is expected to register moderate growth during the forecast period. Owing to its physical characteristics such as strength, clarity and light weight, PMMA is successfully replacing glass in many applications. It also offers high energy efficiency and is resistant to harsh weather conditions.
Competitive vendor landscape
The intense competition and the declining profit margins constitute significant risk factors in vendors' operations. With the increase in competition, the market has been seeing consolidation, where the smaller entities are being acquired by or merged with major players. In addition, the influx of private labels in the market is also on the rise.
“Some important factors that play a major role in defining the competitive structure of the PMMA market are proprietorship over technology, economies of scale, and R&D capabilities. R&D plays an important role as it enables vendors to identify new applications for the product and gain a first-mover advantage,” says Ajay Adhikari, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers research analyst from Technavio.
