According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of filled thermoplastics market looks promising with opportunities in the European consumer appliances, electrical & electronics, power tools and other markets. The filled thermoplastics in the European consumer goods market is expected to reach an estimated $2.7 billion by 2024 with a CAGR of 3.6% from 2019 to 2024. The major drivers for this market are growing demand for consumer goods and increasing use of plastic components to reduce the part weight.
In this market, resin (polypropylene, polyamide, polybutylene terephthalate, and polycarbonate) and fillers (mineral filler and fibers) are the major raw materials used for filled thermoplastic compound manufacturing. Lucintel forecasts that polypropylene resin based filled thermoplastics will remain the largest segment by value and volume. The growing use of lightweight materials and comparatively lower cost than other thermoplastic resins is likely to drive the consumption of polypropylene based filled thermoplastics over the forecast period.
Within filled thermoplastics market, electrical & electronics will remain the largest application by value and consumer appliances by volume. Consumer appliances segment is also expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period due to the increasing demand for lightweight plastic materials.
In this market, mineral filled and fiber reinforced thermoplastics are the major product types. Mineral filled thermoplastic will remain the largest segment by value and volume due to its wide application area in consumer durable products. The reinforced thermoplastics segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period due to the growing demand for materials with higher performance benefits.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include continuous innovation and development of new products with higher thermal stability, and growing inter-material competition. BASF, DowDuPont, Lanxess, DSM, Lyondellbasell and Borealis are among the major suppliers of filled thermoplastics in the European consumer goods market.
