Light and Strong: Ceresana Study on the Global Market for #Automotive Plastics

The automotive industry is a dynamically growing market for plastics: In addition to the global stock of already more than 1.2 billion vehicles, more than 90 million units are added every year. There are many examples of applications for plastics in the automotive industry: door trim, headlights, switches and handles, seating components, dashboard, windows, and also less visible parts such as plug connectors, battery casings, oil pans, fuel pumps, filter casings, or cooling water tanks. Replacing metal, rubber, and glass by plastics can reduce weight - but performance remains the same or is even improved.

Stable Growth: Ceresana Analyzes the World Market for Plastics in the #Construction Industry

Plastics replace wood or metal at construction sites more and more often. PVC and EPS are stable and reliable, light and cheap: Advantages of the materials that can flexibly adapt to varied requirements are increasingly discovered. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the demand for plastics that are used in the construction industry, namely in the segments new construction and renovation as well as residential construction and non-residential construction. The new study also examines the market for the particular construction products that are made of plastics, e.g. pipes, windows, and insulation materials. The analysts of Ceresana expect demand of the construction industry for plastics to increase worldwide to a volume of about 73 million tonnes.

Sparkling Revenues: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for Plastics for #Injection Molding

Injection molding is the most important processing method for mass production of plastic parts: Worldwide, almost 55 million tonnes of plastics are liquefied every year, then injected into various molds, and after cooling removed as a finished product. From small Lego bricks to large pipe fittings, almost everything is possible: The flexibility of size and form of this method expanded possibilities of plastic design enormously. Injection molding enables the substitution of traditional materials due to the low weight and the freedom of design. The market research company Ceresana publishes now a study on the world market for plastics for injection molding.

Green Growth: Ceresana Publishes the New Report on the World Market for #Bioplastics

Films made of potato starch, fibers made of lactic acid, disposable tableware made of sugar cane: revenues of more than USD 2.6 billion were generated with 'green' plastics in 2015. The market research institute Ceresana analyzed the global market for bioplastics already for the fourth time. According to the new study, these materials account for considerably higher growth rates than traditional petrochemical standard plastics. Facing the rising demand and the increasingly growing range of applications for bioplastics, analysts expect the trend to become even more significant in the future.

Every Drop Counts: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for Plastic #Pipes

Periods of extreme drought and old pipelines in bad conditions are not only a problem for Brazil's cities: Water is becoming increasingly scarce. This is a problem for thirsty consumers and desperate farmers. Yet, it is also a hope for new business opportunities for pipe manufacturers, because modern, efficient pipelines can at least mitigate the problem. In the upcoming years, increasing investments in pipe networks are to be expected, not only for the potable water supply. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for plastic pipes. Our analysts forecast demand for these to increase to almost 37 million tonnes until 2023.

The whitest white: Ceresana's new report on world market for #titanium dioxide

Titanium dioxide, the most important white pigment with the highest refractive index, is the top-selling pigment type for paints, varnishes, paper, and plastics. It is used, for example, for the production of glass, ceramics, and catalysts. Titanium dioxide is used in food and medicine as well as in sunscreen. The market research company Ceresana extensively analyzed the global market for titanium dioxide along the complete value-added chain already for the second time: from the feedstock ilmenite, leucoxene, and rutile to the refined intermediates titanium slag and synthetic rutile up to the individual end products.

High-Performance Materials: Ceresana's New Study on the World Market for Engineering #Plastics

Demand for engineering plastics with special physical and chemical characteristics has been increasing more strongly than the sales of common standard plastics such as polypropylene for several years already. Considering the rising demand for increasingly more efficient and lighter material, this trend is likely to even strengthen further. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the world market for engineering plastics already for the second time: Almost 20.3 million tonnes of ABS, PC, PA, PMMA, POM, PBT, SAN, and fluoropolymers were sold last year.

Energy Saving with Perspective: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for Plastic #Windows

When thinking about improving the energy efficiency of buildings, the first things that come to one's mind are insulation materials for house walls and roofs. However, even the best insulation is useless when thermal bridges such as windows are not taken into consideration. Plastic windows are already able to save a lot of energy. And its development is not over yet: Performance can be improved further by integrating special core insulation material directly into the window profile. Thus, the market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for plastic window frames. These are usually made from PVC. Our analysts forecast demand for them to increase to almost 270 million units per year until 2023.

Controversial Lifesavers: Ceresana Analyzes the World Market for #Flame #Retardants

Flame retardants inhibit or prevent from spread of fires, yet, they can also be dangerous for health and environment. In any case, they are sold in ever larger amounts: Worldwide, about 2.15 million tonnes of flame retardants are used per year for plastic products, electronic devices, construction material, and textiles. For the fourth time now, the market research company Ceresana extensively analyzed the global market for these lifesaving yet not unproblematic products. These include halogenated flame retardants based on bromine and chlorine, as well as aluminum trihydroxide (ATH), organophosphorus, antimony compounds (ATO), and rarer types.

Rapid Change: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for #Printing #Inks

Printing is declared dead. Yet, ink on dead trees is still a good business. According to a new market study by Ceresana, the global market for printing inks, which includes toners for electrophotography, will increase its volume to about USD 25.7 billion until 2023. In 2011, it had been at a level of less than USD 20 billion. However, not all manufacturers can benefit from this growth. The printing industry is undergoing some radical changes: While traditional businesses decline, online printing plants are seeing a rapid ascent; traditional printing processes are replaced increasingly by digital publishing processes.
