Availability of Cost-effective Raw Materials to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific
In terms of region, the polymers market is grouped into Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Amongst these, North America acquired USD 72.90 billion Plastics Market revenue in 2018 and is likely to showcase significant growth throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributable to the increasing demand for plastics in the U.S. from industries, namely, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, automotive, packaging, and more. Europe is expected to experience considerable growth in the near future on account of the high demand for plastics from the infrastructure & construction industry.
Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to be the fastest-growing region owing to the large consumption of plastics by India and China. China would lead because of the availability of raw materials at lower rates in this country. It is, in turn, minimizing the hindrances involved in the plastic production process. Apart from that, the demand for plastics from the consumer goods industry is skyrocketing because of their increasing usage in the production of textiles, toys, and sports goods.
