Resin Market Growth Drivers

Increasing Demand for Polypropylene in Automotive Industry to Drive Market Growth

Key Players to Focus on Launches to Strengthen their Market Prospectus

COVID-19 Impact
The COVID-19 pandemic crippled the global economy as it limited the flow of products and resources, which caused demand and supply constraints. Many manufacturers of resins faced a raw material shortage. Thus, due to limited production capabilities, the manufacturing of end-products gradually decreased. This factor resulted in the closure of production facilities due to labor and raw material shortages, supply chain disruptions, and strict government regulations. However, despite the uncertainties during the pandemic, the plastic packaging demand in leading industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and e-commerce slowed the effect of the pandemic on the market.
