Report Scope

This report covers the compounding of major thermoplastic resins. The base year of this study is 2020, while forecasts are provided from 2021 to 2026. The revenue is provided in terms of USD in millions, while volume is given in terms of billion pounds.

The global plastic compounding market is categorized on the basis of below given segments:

  • Region: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world.
  • Plastic type: The high-volume commodity resins include high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and others which comprise thermoplastic polyesters (primarily PET) and engineering thermoplastics (ETPs) (include polybutylene terephthalate [PBT], nylons [polyamides], polycarbonates, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene terpolymers [ABS] and some real specialties like polyacetals and polysulfones.)
  • Application: Packaging, automotive, building and construction, electrical and electronics, and consumer goods.

This report also includes an introduction to thermoplastic elastomers and some biocompounds—plastics that are made from plants instead of hydrocarbons. It excludes thermosetting resins since they have different chemistries and are usually processed differently.

Report Highlights

  • The North American market distributed 98 billion pounds of plastic compounds in 2008. The market decreased to an estimated 91 billion pounds in 2009, but is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4% to 107 billion pounds in 2014.
  • The largest segment of the market, resin producers, distributed 64 billion pounds in 2008. It decreased to an estimated 60 billion pounds in 2009, but is projected to increase at a CAGR of 3.3% to 71 billion pounds in 2014.
  • The processors segment distributed 21 billion pounds in 2008. That figure was expected to decrease to 20 billion in 2009, but was expected to grow to more than 23 billion pounds in 2014, for a 5-year CAGR of 3.4%.

Report Highlights

  • In viewing the entire thermoplastic market, the resin producers account for the majority of the compounding activity (producing around 44.585 billion pounds in 2006), followed by plastic processors (12.964 billion pounds) and independent compounders (8.173 billion pounds). Independent compounders, though, will show the highest average annual growth rate (AAGR) at 5.3%.
  • When viewing this market by the individual thermoplastics covered in this report, these ratios can be vastly different. For example, the major polyethylene variants, HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE along with polystyrene are compounded mostly by resin producers, while PVC is compounded mostly by processors.
  • There are several key trends within the plastic compounding business which will take some time to become significant. They are: forward integration of resin producers into compounding; increased backward integration of large plastic processors into compounding; increased specialization of independent compounders; continued movement of compounding production.
