Africa Thermosetting and Thermoplastics Market - Segmented by Thermoplastic Resins, Thermosetting Resin, End-User Industry, and Geography – Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)

The African thermosetting and thermoplastics market is expected to value USD 581.28 million in 2017 and register a CAGR of 5.67% during 2017-2022 (the forecast period).

One of the major drivers of the African market identified in this report is the increasing shipbuilding activities in South Africa. Being a coastal area, South Africa is anticipated to witness a growing demand for African thermosetting and thermoplastics for various applications, including paints & coatings, equipment etc. Additionally, the market demand is likely to be propelled by the increasing electronic applications in most of the countries in the region. Factors, such as unemployment, high electricity rates and political factors are the factors hindering the market growth, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period).

The market has been segmented into resin type (thermoplastic, and thermosetting), and end-user industry. Based on resin type, thermoplastic resins sub-segment is dominating the market with a share of 91.26% in 2017. Further, the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is dominating the thermoplastic resin market and expected to continue its dominance, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period). Based on end-user industry, the packaging sector dominated the market, owing to the growing demand from the food & beverage industry, and is anticipated to register the largest and fastest CAGR of 6.05%, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period).
