Report Highlights

  • The North American market for engineering resin and polymer alloy/blend is expected to increase from 3.3 billion pounds in 2007 to an estimated 3.4 billion pounds in 2008 and 4.0 billion pounds in 2013, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1%.
  • Polycarbonates have the largest share of the materials market with 887.0 million pounds in 2007 and an estimated 912.0 million pounds in 2008. This is expected to increase at a CAGR of 3.1% to reach 1.1 billion pounds in 2013.
  • The nylons segment is the second largest by volume. Roughly 801.0 million pounds were used in 2007, with an expected increase to 825.0 million pounds in 2008. This should reach 954.0 million pounds in 2013, a CAGR of 3.0%.

Report Highlights

  • The polymer alloy/blend market is estimated at 565 million pounds in 1999 and is forecast to increase at a 5.3% average annual growth rate, reaching about 730 million pounds by 2004.
  • PC-based alloys/blends account for 54% of the total, followed by PPO-based alloys/ blends with 41%, which leaves the other group with 5%. It is important to note that the PC-based resins are growing at a rate 2.3 times that of the PPO-based resins.
  • Electronic enclosures and automotive industries are the dominant outlets for alloys/blends, making up over 90% of total volume. Appliances, medical, lawn/garden and sports/recreation account for the remaining applications for alloys/blends.
  • Alloys/blends compete with alloy/blend components, e.g., polycarbonate vs. PC/ABS, and with non-alloy/blend components such as PC/ABS vs. polyurethanes, thermoset polyesters, etc.
