World Solid Surface & Other Cast Polymers

World Solid Surface & Other Cast Polymers

The global solid surface and other cast polymers market is projected to reach 246 million square meters in 2019, a 6.6% increase from 2014. Increases in building construction spending will drive gains in demand for solid surface and other cast polymers.

This report covers the global solid surface and other cast polymer market. Data are presented in square meters for six regions and 18 countries. The global industry is further broken out by Type and Application.

Regions covered include:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

Asia/Pacific is the largest regional market for solid surface and other cast polymers, accounting for nearly 60% of total demand in 2014. This region will contribute the majority of new demand through 2019, primarily due to efforts to modernization the building stock in China, as well as the continued expansion in the construction of new buildings in that and other developing countries.

Types of cast polymers covered include:
Solid Surface
Engineered Stone
Gel-Coated Composites

Solid surface, the largest of these categories, will post the most growth through 2020, due to its wide availability and popularity as a surfacing material in the significant Asia/Pacific region. Engineered stone, roughly half the market size of solid surface in 2014, will post the fastest gains in demand, driven by the material’s ability to successfully compete with other cast polymers as well as natural stone in a variety of surfacing applications.

Major applications for solid surface and other cast polymers include:
Residential Countertops
Nonresidential Countertops
Sinks

Other Building Applications (e.g., flooring, wall cladding, and shower walls, pans, and surrounds)
All Other Applications (e.g., retail fixtures, tabletops and other furniture)

Residential countertops commanded a 60% share of global solid surface and other cast polymer demand in 2014. Increases in residential building construction spending, rising personal incomes, and greater use of engineered stone as a countertop material at the expense of natural stone will allow residential countertops to account for the most growth through 2019.

Concentration levels vary by the type of cast polymer. AKG Yalitim, Caesarstone, Cambria, Compac, Cosentino, DuPont, Hanwha Living & Creative, Peker Group, Quarella, Romastone, Santa Margherita, Stone Italiana, and Zhongxun New Material are among the companies offering solid surface and other cast polymers.
