A plastic cabinet is a box-shaped piece of furniture with doors or drawers for storing various items. It usually has one or more doors on the front, which are mounted with door hardware, and occasionally a lock. Short cabinets often have a finished surface on top that can be used for display, or as a working surface, such as countertops found in kitchens. Commercial grade cabinets are also known as casework or casegoods. Cabinets can be used in nearly every room of the house, but typically, customers buy them for kitchens or bathrooms. A plastic cabinet is relatively inexpensive, as compared to a metal or wooden cabinet. Plastic cabinets are suitable for customers who have budget constraints. These cabinets are unbreakable and light weight; hence, they can be moved without any help. Plastic cabinets require little maintenance, unlike wooden cabinets, and can withstand the effects of the weather.
Key factors driving the plastic cabinet market include rise in residential remoulding and repair activity, which often includes upgrade of kitchen cabinets and vanities, increased preferences for corporate offices, educational institutes, libraries garages, and laboratories. Promotion of plastic cabinets through online channels is anticipated to offer significant opportunities to the market. The e-commerce industry has also created good opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers in the plastic cabinet market. Manufacturers and distributors of plastic cabinets are focusing on selling their products on e-commerce websites in order to cater to diverse consumers across the world. Cabinets made up of plastics are not bio degradable and eco-friendly; hence, they pose considerable environmental hazards. These cabinets are not sturdy and are unable to sustain heavy weight and pressure. These are major factors hampering the plastic cabinet market.
