Global Polycarbonate Market: Widespread Industrial Applications to Aid Market Expansion

Global Polycarbonate Market Overview

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Polycarbonate Market was worth US$ 23,479.0 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period. While the historical CAGR is 4.5%, the market is expected to hit US$ 39,727.0 Mn by 2032 end.

Numerous sectors use this resin, including automotive and transportation, building, packaging, consumer products, and medical devices. Regulations promoting the use of plastics and the reduction of vehicle weight have resulted in a recent surge in demand from car makers.


Due to its outstanding physical and chemical qualities, polycarbonate is used in various end-use industries. Due to the rising demand for lightweight, highly functional, and recyclable materials for external and interior applications, thermoplastic polymers are e favored in the automotive industry.

Construction activity has increased in some growing nations, including China and India, due to increased government investment in infrastructure development. In both the residential and industrial construction sectors, the number of construction projects closely correlates with the growth in demand for roofing solutions. Thus, the expansion of the polycarbonate sheets market is responsible for the rise in demand for transparent roofing goods from the building and construction sectors.

Key Takeaways From The Market

  • Based on type, Solid polycarbonate sheets are frequently used in place of glass in various applications because they offer exceptional impact resistance and durability. Compared to glass, they are lighter and highly good at transmitting light. Polycarbonate sheets have an impact strength of about ten times more than toughened glass and 200 times greater than regular glass. These characteristics make solid polycarbonate sheets excellent for various applications, driving global demand.
  • Based on end-use, the main end-use industrial segment for polycarbonate is the automotive and construction sector. In addition to having good homogeneity, enhanced flexibility, and high strength, polycarbonate sheets are lightweight and simple. Architectural designers choose polycarbonate sheets over alternatives when choosing building materials because they facilitate the execution of creative structural ideas while also speeding up construction and lowering overall construction costs.
  • Based on region, with a market share of 59.3%, the Asia Pacific area is the most promising for the polycarbonate industry. This rise can be ascribed to the manufacturing sector’s increased production to meet the growing domestic and international demand for high-quality products. Additionally, the region’s booming end-use industries are fuelling research, development, and new polycarbonate innovations, driving up demand for the material in the APAC market.
