The Americas plastic compounding market is expected to reach USD 19.11 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The shift in trend towards lightweight composites to lower vehicular weight and thereby foster fuel savings & lower carbon emission levels are anticipated to drive demand.
Increasing demand from major end-use industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, packaging, construction and consumer goods is expected to remain a key driving factor for market growth. Plastics compounds are rapidly replacing conventional materials such as wood, glass, and metals in various applications on account of their flexibility, lubricity and increased strength & stiffness.
Favorable federal regulations by agencies such as National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding carbon emissions along with the U.S. EPA initiatives to develop plastics compounds in lightweight & fuel-efficient cars is likely to augment regional market growth.
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is expected to be the fastest growing product segment owing to increasing usage in end-use industries such as packaging and electrical & electronics.
