SKU: DPC394 | Last Updated On: Dec 05 2019 | No. of Pages: 230 | Available Formats

In July 2019, The UK government has announced plans to invest USD 72.5 million to help fight the battle against single-use plastics and develop new forms of packaging.

Market Overview

Transparent plastics are moldable above a specific temperature and return to a solid state upon cooling. These plastics exhibit properties such as recyclability, resistance to corrosion and chemicals, lightweight, low electrical and thermal conductivity, shock resistance, durability, water resistance, and others. The, transparent plastics market is primarily driven by the rising interest for plastics from packaging industry, particularly from food & beverage packaging.

The global transparent plastics market size was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Improved shelf-life of packaged food products and rising adoption of transparent plastics worldwide are the crucial drivers for the growth of the market. Rising demand for packed foods from the food and beverage industry and increasing replacement of conventional materials by rigid transparent plastics are expanding the market growth. Adding to this, growing incomes and changing lifestyles that promotes the plastic material for packaging purposes are the key factors for the market growth. Governments are focusing to invest in plastic industry. For instance, In July 2019, The UK government has announced plans to invest USD 72.5 million to help fight the battle against single-use plastics and develop new forms of packaging.

Increasing demand for eco-friendly packaging materials in developed regions and environmental pollution due to the low biodegradability of plastics are the major restraints hampering the market growth.

Segment Analysis

By polymer type, the transparent plastics market is segmented into polycarbonate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, and, others. Others include poly methyl methacrylate and polystyrene. The global transparent plastics market size by application segment was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period. Polycarbonate is a high-performance tough, amorphous and transparent thermoplastic polymer offering unique combination of properties such as high impact strength, dimensional stability, good mechanical properties, etc. It can transmit over 90% light and block ultraviolet radiation and provide 100% protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.

Polycarbonate is used in a large variety of everyday applications like construction materials, electronic components, data storage, automotive, aircraft, railway, and security components. Some major smartphone manufacturers use polycarbonate. Nokia Lumia series, Samsung Galaxy series and iPhone 5Cs are the few models using polycarbonate. Adding to this, Kereta Api Indonesia, the major railway operator in Indonesia, uses polycarbonate solid sheet for their engine and passenger cars fleet since 2016 due to high train stone throwing frequency.

By type, the transparent plastics market is classified into flexible and rigid. The global transparent plastics market size by type segment was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period. Rigid Transparent Plastic Market size is likely to hold a major share during the forecasted period due to continuous growth in disposable revenue and frequently changing lifestyle promotes the product market for packaging purposes. Increasing demand for automotive industry is the major reason for the market growth. Rigid-transparent polycarbonate has been widely used in several automotive and transportation applications. Clear rigid plastics are commercially available in many forms including injection-molded, extruded, blow-molded and thermoformed.
