The global Plastic Market size is expected to reach USD 777.35 Billion in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period, according to a latest report by Reports and Data. Rapidly increasing global population, rising food demand, expanding urbanization and industrialization trends, and increasing demand for plastics for food and beverage packaging are some key factors driving global plastic market revenue. In addition, rising demand for engineering plastic is expected to contribute significantly to revenue growth of this market going ahead. Increase in population and rising food demand are resulting in rapid increase in demand for plastics and plastic by-products for production of various products.

Rising demand for plastics for products such as insulation, pipelines, floorings, storage tanks, and others due to shift away from conventional, heavier, and costlier materials such as metals and wood in construction applications is driven by rapid urbanization trend in various countries.  

Engineering plastics have eventually replaced the traditional engineering materials such as wood or metal in various applications. Besides equaling or surpassing traditional materials in weight or strength and other properties, engineering plastics are much easier to manufacture, especially for complex shapes.

However, rising concerns regarding plastic waste disposal and impact on health and the environment, and subsequent implementation of more stringent regulations and standards, as well as bans on types of plastics are some key factors expected to restrain market growth to a certain extent over the forecast period. Various types of plastics contain hazardous or toxic  chemical constituents, and have harmful effects on air, water, soil, organisms, and human health.  Materials used, both plastics raw materials and additives, are required to meet various food safety standards in different countries and these are factors expected to hamper market growth to some extent.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

Polyvinyl chloride segment is expected to register significantly robust growth in terms of revenue over the forecast period. Due to the rigid form of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), it is widely used for production of pipes and in profile applications such as doors and windows. Increasing number of construction projects and infrastructure development in various countries is driving growth of the segment.

Compression molding segment is expected to register a rapid revenue growth rate over the forecast period as compression molding is a high-pressure and high-volume molding procedure, which is mostly suitable for molding high-strength and complex fiberglass reinforcements. The ability to mold large and complicated parts is the best advantage of compression molding. High preference for compression molding of various components and parts is a key factor driving growth of this segment.

Asia Pacific plastic market is expected to account for largest revenue share among other regional markets during the forecast period. China is expected to lead in terms of revenue contribution to the market in the region owing to availability of raw materials at lower cost. Growth of the market is also supported to a significant extent by rapid growth in packaging and construction industries in countries in the region.

Market Insights:

Rising global energy demand, increasing regulatory & environmental pressure and highly volatile oil & gas prices have put great "deal" to other alternative energy sources. There is increased awareness and commitments across firms regarding "Green" energy sources. The demand for green has been driven by environmental pollution caused by conventional energy sources. The energy industry is largely controlled by utilities sector and government in most of the emerging nations like BRIC nations .However, dynamics are drastically changing driven by new policy changes, relaxing the FDI norms in the sector, increased privatization, new capital investments of power projects by both public & private, smart grid to better manage services & reduce transmission losses, use of smart metering and and growing electricity demand.
