The US plastic market is valued at over $90 billion in 2022. The Asia Pacific region is the most lucrative for plastic product consumption with a net share of 44%. Packaging industry is the largest end use vertical commanding over 36% of the sales of plastic in the international market

NEWARK, Del, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global plastic market is set to witness an impressive growth rate of 3.7% over the forecasted years of 2022 to 2032. The plastic market size is anticipated to reach a valuation of around US$ 885 Billion by the end of year 2032 from the current valuation of US$ 695 Billion in 2022.

The main causes of the increased sales of plastic in several economies are the expanding for the ensuing need for ultralight constituents to increase automobile load capacity and decrease the cost of semiconductor devices. Compared to other materials, corrugated plastic has a specific gravity that is 85% lower providing for weight reductions of around 80% and component cost reductions of 30% to 50% when employed in the construction and automotive sectors.

The demand for plastic in infrastructure and building applications would be driven by rising government construction spending, notably in China and India. Additionally, the expanding need for metal substitutes drives an expansion of the use of engineering plastic or composite polymers across a range of sectors.
