Global Polycarbonate Sheets Market: Outlook

Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic that has organic functional groups attached to a carbonate group. It is one of the most widely used thermoplastics across the globe. Polycarbonate offers excellent dimensional stability, exceptional optical clarity, outstanding impact resistance, and superior thermal resistance. These high-performance attributes make polycarbonate an ideal plastic material for various applications that require high thermal resistance and impact resistance. Polycarbonates are better than other thermoplastic materials such as PMMA and acrylic, due to their ability to degrade minimal when heated and cooled.

Polycarbonate sheets are used in various industries such as building & construction, automotive, and electrical & electronics. Properties such as optical clarity, high strength, thermal stability, and excellent dimensional stability make polycarbonate sheets a material of choice in the manufacture of compact disks (CDs), vandal-proof glazing, riot shields, electric components, baby-feeding bottles, headlamp lenses, and safety helmets. Polycarbonate sheets are extensively used as clear roofing in buildings, due to their superior finish. Superior finish and affordability make polycarbonate sheets an ideal material for automotive applications. The material is also used for applications such as kitchen utensils, due to its ability to be cut, rolled, and adjoined in different shapes.
