To gain a competitive advantage, Mukherjee recommends that players emulate market leaders such as DSM, SABIC and BASF, and establish or expand production capabilities and strategic efforts in the APAC market as it is likely to provide maximum exposure and growth opportunities in the foreseeable future.

Key trends creating growth opportunities in the market include:

  • Lightweighting and metal replacement trends in end-user industries driving engineering plastics consumption
  • High demand for engineering plastics in construction, transportation and medical applications with significant market share gains
  • A shift in focus towards niche applications and product differentiation strategies to combat commoditization of engineering plastics
  • Growth in partnerships, tie-ups and collaboration across the value chain to drive customisation

“Government regulations, price volatility of petroleum, international trade wars, and miniaturisation of electrical and electronics components are key factors disrupting supply chains and hindering market growth,” noted Mukherjee. “To be future-ready, players should build contingency strategies to mitigate disruptions and include bio-based engineering plastics with a low environmental footprint into their product portfolio, particularly in Europe and North America.”
