Identification And Analysis Of The Macro And Micro Factors That Affect The Global Specialty Polymers 2017-2022


Global Specialty Polymers Market-Segmented by Material Type, Product Type, Application, and Geography-Trends and Forecasts (2017-2022). The market has also been segmented on the basis of polymers into polyamides, polycarbonate, polyketones, polyurethanes, polyphtalamides, polyamide-imide, polytherimide, polyimides, polysulfones, polyetherimide, polyesters.


The global specialty polymers market was valued at USD XX billion in 2015, and is likely to reach USD 72.57 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.94% during the forecast period (2017 – 2022).

Specialty polymers are polymeric that are added to the polymers to enhance their physical properties and performance. They aid in improving the fatigue and wear resistance; chemical and heat resistance; corrosion, weathering and abrasion protection; biocompatibility, fire resistance, and fluctuating temperature resistance. As a result, their usage in both industrial and commercial applications is consistently increasing.

The specialty polymers are used in various applications such as automotive and transportation, consumer goods, building and construction, adhesives, sealants, and coatings, electrical and electronics, medical and safety, and others. Construction and electronics are the largest application segments accounting for the major demand for specialty polymers in 2014; additionally, they are expected to be the fastest growing products in the forecast period. They are also used in aircraft interior cabin applications, including seating, passenger service units, stow bins and air grilles.
