Engineering Plastics - A Global Market Overview

The worldwide market for engineering plastics is projected to reach about US$17.5 billion by 2015 from an estimated US$6.9 billion in 2005, growing at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.8% during the analysis period, 2005-2015.

Stable growth and continuous development of global economy and the science & technology during the past couple of decades has raised rigorous requirement for the performance of materials. Engineering plastics become the area of focus for the development of new chemical materials, as the traditional material no longer caters the needs of current applications. Engineering plastics, in current modern life, are an essential material and finding its widespread applications in each and every sector of global economy.

A new study “Engineering Plastics - A Global Market Overview” reviews, analyzes and projects the global market for Engineering Plastics for the period 2006-2016.
