Special Engineering Plastics Market: Overview
Of late, demands for not only greater use of polymeric materials, but also the development of polymeric materials with specific properties, in certain industries such as the automotive and transport, electrical and electronics, packaging, building & construction, and sports & leisure, has increased. Individual resins carry performance limitations & users impose increasingly higher requirements on material of low cost, high & diversified performances. So special engineering plastics emerged as a potential solution to meet these demands. In order to meet these requirements, research is being carried out on many new polymers. Special engineering plastics function under rigorous mechanical, electronic, and chemical conditions. These type of applications commonly involve more than one of these conditions. Special engineering plastics, also known as super engineering plastics.
Special Engineering Plastics Market: Trends & Development
Special engineering plastics can be tailored according to the needs of end-users. This is a key advantage of special engineering plastics. Special engineering plastics are widely used in the automotive & healthcare industry. Advancement in production technology is leading to the manufacture of innovative products of special engineering plastics. These new products are anticipated to be used in technologically advanced end-use products. This is anticipated to drive the demand for special engineering plastics in the near future. However, special engineering plastics products are costly and out of the scope for wide scale application.
Special Engineering Plastics Market: Key Segments
Based on type, the special engineering plastics market can be classified into Aromatic Polyester (ARPES), Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyethernitrile (PEN), Polyetherimied (PEI), Polyethersulfone (PES), Polyamideimide (PAI), Fluoropolymers (PTFE & Other FPs), Polyimide (PI), and Others. Special engineering plastics has many types with high performance, but its price is very expensive. Because of its special molecular structure, quality stability is not easy to control, & it requires high quality mold. Applications of PEEK include automotive engine parts, oil wells, aerospace, while applications of PEI include car lens reflector, TFT cassettes, and hard disk components.
