Europe Engineering Plastics Market is likely to register a CAGR of over 4% during the outlook period of 2021to 2026.

Impact of COVID-19 on the European Engineering Plastic Market:

Europe was the early hotspot for the virus in early 2021and it had a severe impact on major European economies as most of them were shut. It has negatively affected the demand for composites across various end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive & transportation, wind energy, construction & infrastructure, and pipes & tanks. The disruption in the supply chain has led to delays in the arrival of raw materials, an impact on finances, and shaking morale among production workers, forcing the companies to function at reduced resources. This has led to reduction in demand for composites. However, the demand from the packaging industry increased in this period which led to more production of plastics. The market is estimated to become normal from 2021.

Recent Developments in the Europe Engineering Plastics Market Industry:

  • In 2020, the Italian household company De’Loghi started using BASF SE’s polyethersulfone (PESU) for their coffee machine. The adoption came after the latter’s plastic product imposed superior properties and high resistance to temperature.
  • In October 2019, SABIC launched TRUCIRCLE initiative and solutions, showcased at K 2019, along with their top of the line flagship certified circular polymers from the chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste, certified renewable polymers, its new polycarbonate (PC) based on certified renewable feedstock and mechanically recycled polymers.

Drivers and Restraints of Europe Engineering Plastics Market

Engineering plastics is quickly replacing the traditional materials in many manufacturing and industrial sectors and thus this adoption of the former is driving the market demand throughout Europe. One such industry is the automotive industry, of late, major goal for many market players has become to reduce the vehicle weight and improve the efficiency of the vehicle. Engineering plastics provides a robust solution to this problem at a relatively cheaper cost. Another area where engineered plastics is used is the electronics sector. Engineered plastics is also used for the manufacturing of various equipment in the food and beverage industry. Increasing usage of plastics and lightweight material in the Aerospace industry is also a driving factor for engineered plastics market in the European region.

The environmental effects of plastics are very well known, as a result of this, various governments have instructed the industries to decrease their consumption of plastic and come up with alternate solutions that are environment friendly. For achieving the goal of lighter products, industries are turning towards composites in place of engineered plastic, and hence the growth gets thwarted in this respect.

Europe Engineering Plastic market has been segmented into the following categories:

On the basis of Type

Europe Engineering Plastics Market Regional Analysis:

In the European region, the automotive sector has increasingly used engineered plastic for their vehicles. The environment-friendly vehicles have increased the demand for bio-based plastics and composites. A lot of emphases has been laid on the recycling of plastic and thus the same has been utilized in the manufacturing of various components of a vehicle.  The demand for a lightweight material that provides longevity is on the rise in the European region. This material is used exhaustively in the energy sector and with the shift of attention towards the renewable power sector, the growth opportunities for the engineering plastics industry is immense.

Use of thermoplastics such as PET has increased. These materials are known for their excellent melt flow characteristics and are therefore used in various mechanical and electrical industries. They are also known to offer superior strength and recyclability.

The German aerospace industry has shown tremendous growth in the past decade and it has triggered the demand for engineered plastics. Several components in the industry make use of these plastics. In addition to this, Germany is also the leading consumer of plastic materials in Europe. This provides ample of growth opportunities to the industry.
