Global Polycarbonate Resins Market (2020 to 2026) - Featuring SABIC, Covestro & Mitsubishi Chemical Among Others -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Polycarbonate Resins Market 2020-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global polycarbonate resins market is estimated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Rising demand for polycarbonate resins in optical media and potential applications in the automotive industry are the major factors driving the market growth. Polycarbonates and other polymer materials are used in optical data storage media, including compact disks. Polycarbonate resins with good performance characteristics including transparency, good heat resistance, low water affinity, low birefringence, and good processability are required in optical data storage media. Polycarbonate resins provide superior optical properties owing to its amorphous structure.

Advances in optical data storage media, such as enhanced data storage density, are highly desirable and is expected to improve new computer technology including rewritable, read-only, write-once, digital versatile and magneto-optical (MO) disks. In CD-ROM technology, the data to be read is imprinted directly into a transparent, moldable plastic material, including bisphenol A (BPA) polycarbonate. This allows users to extract information (digital data) from the disk without adding or changing any data.

Geographically, in 2019, Asia-Pacific witnessed considerable share in the market owing to the significant production of polycarbonate resins and increasing electrical and electronics manufacturing and automobile production in the region. As per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), production of electronics hardware in India rose from $31.13 billion in 2014 to $65.53 billion in 2019. Further, as per the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), during the period, April 2000-March 2020, the inflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) in electronics sector stood at $2.8 billion. The increasing production of electronics products is driving the demand for polycarbonate resins owing to its potential electrical resistance and flame-retardant characteristics.

Key players in the market include SABIC (Saudi Basic Industries Corp.), Covestro AG, Mitsubishi Chemical Corp., Teijin Ltd., and Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd. The market players are adopting certain strategies including mergers and acquisitions, partnerships and collaborations, and product launches, to gain a competitive advantage. For instance, in February 2019, SABIC has chosen Amco Polymers, LLC as a third distribution partner in North America, offering specialty engineering thermoplastics and associated services to the SABIC customers in the US, Mexico, and Canada. It is a part of SABIC strategy to promote the additional growth of its specialties business and to offer excellent service to its customers.
