High-performance plastics are a category of plastics which have superior properties when compared to standard or engineering plastics and thus meet higher requirements. The development of highperformance plastics started in the early 1960s and was driven by development of the aerospace and nuclear technology industries. Now, most of the manufacturers of high-performance plastics use a process called polycondensation. There are different types of high-performance plastics available on the market thanks to major increases in demand in recent years as customers seek their advanced technical properties such as better mechanical and thermal features.
The global market for high-performance plastics was valued at $REDACTED billion in 2017, with a market volume of REDACTED kilotons in the same year. Global high-performance plastics consumption is forecast togrow at a CAGR of REDACTED% to $REDACTED billion and at a CAGR of REDACTED% to REDACTED kilotons in terms of volume by 2023. High-performance plastics demand is strongly influenced by cyclical global economic factors suchas GDP and consumer spending. High-performance plastics are mostly used in the automotive andelectronics industries, which are heavily influenced by changes in corporate investment activities aroundthe world.
Most key markets, especially those in developed nations, are mature, and most of the replacement of traditional materials by high-performance plastics has already taken place. Thus, the growth rate for high-performance plastics is lower in these regions as compared to developing regions. Growth in developing nations is due to growing demand for consumer goods as consumer spending increases and capital investments in new machinery and equipment grow. Replacement of traditional materials such as metal, glass and high-performance coatings and composites by high-performance plastics across a wide range of applications over several decades has been a key market driver. Although traditional
applications are reaching their saturation point, high-performance plastics continue to find new applications as well as replacements for existing solutions."
