Global High-Performance Thermoplastic Market is estimated to reach USD 64.52 billion by 2026 according to a new report published by Polaris Market Research. High-performance thermoplastics (HPTPs) are advanced polymeric solutions that cater to the demand of industry specific applications. Its global market is primarily driven by the increased investments in the manufacturing of both interior & exterior aerospace and automotive structures. HPTPs are used extensively in areas demanding specific applications on account of the excellent properties the material showcases including high temperature resistance, high chemical resistance, and superior mechanical properties in severe conditions.
HPTPs are extensively used in aircraft structures currently in the industry where over thirty years back, 60-70% of the aircraft constituted of aluminum. This aluminum is now getting replaced by high performance plastics and high-performance carbon fibers. These high-performance thermoplastics are lightweight and have resistance to high temperatures leading to fuel efficiency.
High-performance thermoplastics are also used in other large industries such as electrical & electronics and industrial applications. This thermoplastic has witnessed increased demand in the growing electrical & electronics industry, especially of the developing countries such as India and China. Increased demand in consumer electronics products has significantly contributed to the application growth prospects of this market.
