Global Polycarbonate Sheets & Films Market 2018-2023: Analysis by Type, End-User Industry and Geography -


The "Global
Polycarbonate Sheets & Films Market - Segmented by Type, End-User
Industry, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)"

report has been added to's

The polycarbonate sheets & films market is expected to register a
healthy rate during 2018-2023 (the forecast period).

The reviving construction sector in the European countries and the
growing popularity of polycarbonate against conventional materials are a
few major factors driving the growth of the polycarbonate sheets & films

The uniqueness and performance characteristics of polycarbonate have
increased its applications in major industrial sectors, such as medical
devices, automotive, IT-hardware, electronics, and building &
construction sectors.

In the automotive industry, polycarbonate sheet technology is used in a
wide range of structural, safety, and aesthetic applications. The
low-weight, virtual unbreakability, and glass-like transparency of
polycarbonate make it a preferred option for the application of
headlamps in cars.

Glass has been dominating the automotive glazing industry and accounted
for a share of over 85% of the overall consumption rate in 2017.
However, rising inclination of automotive manufacturers of substituting
glass with lightweight polycarbonate sheets is expected to hamper the
market share of glass in the automotive glazing industry.

The major automotive manufacturers, such as Volkswagen, Fiat, and
Daimler AG, are likely to invest in plastic glazing technologies to
achieve better structural efficiencies, which is expected to grow the
demand for polycarbonate sheets in the near future.

In the electrical & electronics (E&E) sector, the attributes, like flame
retardance, impact resistance, and durability of polycarbonate sheets,
aid manufacturers to meet the demand for higher standards of appearance
and compliance with the emerging regulatory or eco-design standards.
