A type of plastic compounding which is gaining importance in several industries, such as 3D modelling, consumer goods, and medicine, is thermoplastic compounding. Players in the plastic compounding market are raising their production capacities in long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics. A rise in demand for reinforced thermoplastics and thermostats in the fabrication of automotive parts is helping the plastic compounding market expand, globally.

Plastics are the favored material option for a majority of consumer goods. Plastic compounding manufacturers are using double screw compounding as well as additives to improve the flexibility of thermoplastics. Manufacturers are also using mechanical and chemical knowledge to make sure thermoplastics do not contain any raw materials, which is a concern to customers.

Indian Market Players to Join Hands With Overseas Firms To Introduce Niche Products

Plastic compounding manufacturers are constantly communicating with suppliers to get a better understanding of demand and supply chain risks. Manufacturers are taking additional safety measures to try and prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Thus, plastic compounds that are used in medical devices such as personal protective equipment and ventilator components. Players in plastic compounding market are putting in a greater effort to meet the demand for high-quality polymers and compounds used in these medical devices.

In terms of region, the global plastic compounding market has been divided into five regions: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The global plastic compounding market is expected to witness profitable growth in Asia Pacific in the near future.

It was predicted that in 2020 that Asia Pacific would dominate the plastic compounding market, in terms of volume, the reason being that companies in various key economies such as India were making manufacturing plants completely automated to ensure non-toxic operational environment for their employees.

Indian plastic compounding market players are collaborating with organizations in Germany and Shanghai to bring niche products into the plastic compounding market. These joint ventures are facilitating in widening the revenue streams and develop more trust with the existing partners.

Oversupply of Raw Materials Compelling Manufacturers to Enhance Testing Capabilities

The plastic compounding market is expected to expand at a favorable CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period. However, there is a need to boost the availability of more lightweight, durable, and low-emission materials since current trends are indicating an oversupply of raw materials. Thus, stakeholders are cutting on their R&D budgets and rather leaning on testing activities, along with distribution partners to expand business streams. Companies are increasing their focus on technical assistance due to increasing demand for innovative designs and materials in the plastic industry.
