Plastics Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Plastics manufacturers use synthetic organic solids to fabricate industrial and consumer products. Plastics are used for industrial film and microfilms. Plastics are extruded. Plastics are used to make polymers, resins and rubbers. Depending on their post-manufacturing malleability and flexibility, plastics can be classified as thermosetting polymers and thermoplastics. Depending on their chemical structure and molecular units that form polymer chains and back bones. Some significant categories include acrylics, polyesters, silicones, polyurethanes and halogenated plastics. Depending on their structural characteristics and performance features and durability plastic products can be used for industrial or commercial applications. Acrylics are the basis of adhesives, paints and construction materials. Polyesters are used to make a number of fabrics as well as tarpaulin, holograms, and liquid crystal displays. Silicones are used to make sealants, adhesives, lubricants or insulations. Polyurethanes are used to make fibers, seals, carpet underlay, adhesives and hard plastic parts for electronic instruments. Halogenated plastics are used as solvents, pesticides and fire-­resistant oils. The raw materials used to create most plastics are derived from fossil fuels, petroleum or oil and natural gas namely, and are consequently known as petrochemicals. Renewable sources of raw materials and feedstocks for plastics production has been explored with biorenewable sources such as cellulose, starches, and oils, particularly algal oils. Plastic manufacturer’s can be sorted to understand geographic, industrial and product areas to gain insight to the industry behaviors.
