High Performance Plastics Market – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2016–2024
Plastics comprise of a wide range of synthetic and semi-synthetic materials, which are strong, moldable and lightweight in nature. Over the last couple of decades, plastics have emerged as an inseparable part of humankind, finding its application in every fathomable part of daily life. Plastics enhance comfort, convenience, and safety of products. They are modified to suit the requirement and find application used in houses such as carpets, blankets, and pillows for improved comfort; in bottles and coolers for portable means to carry food and drinks. They are also used in several electronic devices to enable Internet access and communication, and in sports and safety equipment. Improved standard of living and growing environmental awareness and sustainable development thinking among the populace are driving demand for new and innovative material plastics. Plastics that are mainly used in high temperature and high pressure applications are known as high performance plastics. These plastics show excellent performance and effectiveness on exposure to highly reactive chemicals. High performance plastics exhibit properties of high resistance to chemicals and electricity, low coefficient of friction, superior performance at high temperature, and high strength, thus considered highly superior to standard or engineering plastics. These plastics are priced premium and are usually used in very small quantities.

Fluoropolymers, high performance polyamides, sulfone polymers, liquid crystal polymers, polyketones, and polyimides are among the most commonly used high performance plastics. These materials are used in various end-use industries such as transportation, medical, and electrical & electronics.
Superior mechanical properties, high heat stability, and superior chemical resistance of high performance plastics have resulted in their use in the manufacturing of various exterior and interior components of aircraft and automobiles. Growing population and urbanization over the recent years, has led to an increasing demand for transportation, thus fueling growth of the automotive and aviation industries. This being the case, the transportation segment has emerged as the largest end-use segment in the global high performance plastics market. . . Polyketones exhibit desirable mechanical and thermo-physical properties unique to any other polymer such as high tensile and impact strength, exceptionally high abrasion resistance with minimal wear and tear and very good tribological properties. Owing to these exceptional properties, polyketones are suitable for manufacturing various products such as induction systems, fuel systems, coolant systems, powertrain, engine components, brake systems, shaft seals, pumps & valves, shaft seals, surgical equipment, sockets, biotechnology, and transmission components. Polyketones is thus, the fastest-growing product type.
