Further Key Finding from the Report Suggestion:

  • In April 2021, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) introduced a new recycled resin which is partly made from ocean-bound plastics. This new recycled material is a Xenoy MC/PET compound comprising a minimum of 10% recycled ocean-bound PET blended with polycarbonate. It is part of SABIC’s TruCircle portfolio. The ocean-bound resin is mechanically recycled and converted into components for new consumer goods and electronic applications such as TV remote controls electronic razors. This new product is expected to minimize plastics ending up as wastes in the ocean.
  • Crystalline segment is expected to account for largest revenue share in the global plastic resins market over the forecast period. Rising usage of polypropylene in food packaging is set to drive growth of this segment. Polypropylene has excellent clarity and strong vapor barrier properties. It is capable of preserving the taste and freshness of packaged food items.
  • Packaging segment is expected to account for a considerable revenue share in the global plastic resins market. Consumers across the globe are increasingly inclining towards online platforms to purchase a number of products as per requirements. This factor is further leading to rapid expansion of e-commerce shipments and other home-delivery services. It is boosting growth of the packaging segment.
  • The plastic resins market in Asia Pacific is expected to account for largest revenue share over the forecast period. Rising construction activities and high demand for energy-efficient buildings, owing to launch of new programs such as Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) in India, is projected to increase utilization of plastic resins in the construction industry in this region.

Market Overview:

Consumers are placing a higher importance on sustainability and, as a result, are choosing items based on factors like circularity and carbon footprint. Furthermore, consumer concern about carbon emissions has prompted increased investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and transportation decarbonization. These developments have had considerable impact on chemical end sectors, particularly in the automobile and construction industries. COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation by lowering the automobile and construction industries (as well as many others) and disrupting current supply lines.
