Polycarbonate sheets are made of polycarbonate resins and possess properties, such as impact resistance and good light transmission. These sheets, also called thermoplastic sheets, have a special property in which when being heated to their melting point, they do not exhibit any significant degradation. Polycarbonate sheets also offer 250 times greater impact resistance than glass and almost 30 times than acrylic sheets. These properties have enabled their use in different engineering applications.
In terms of value, the solid segment is projected to account for the largest share of the polycarbonate sheets market, by type, during the forecast period.
Solid is projected to be the largest type segment in polycarbonate sheets market. The growth of the solid segment can be attributed to the increasing use of solid polycarbonate sheets in various end-use industries as these sheets provide better physical properties as compared to other polycarbonate sheets.
Packaging industry is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Packaging is the fastest growing end-use industry contributing the largest share to the global polycatbonate sheets market. Polycarbonate plastic is a perfect material for baby bottles, refillable water bottles, sippy cups, and many other food & beverage containers. Because polycarbonate is highly transparent to visible light with a better light transmission than many kinds of glass, it is highly sought out for use in food packaging.
The APAC region leads the polycarbonate sheets market in terms of value.
APAC is the fastest-growing region for polycarbonate sheets market. The growth in demand for polycarbonate sheets in the region can be largely attributed to the growing infrastructure and building & construction industries. Moreover, the rising number of end-use industries in the region is also leading to innovations and developments in the field of polycarbonate sheets, thereby fueling the growth of the APAC polycarbonate sheets market.
