According to the latest report by Reports and Data, the global plastic resins market size was USD 419.88 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 588.02 Billion in 2028 and register a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.

Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

Plastic is used for production of a majority of products used in countries across the globe and has enabled manufacturers to create products with robust packaging. Plastic resins form the base of all plastics and are transformed through different processes to cater to specific needs. Plastic resins have a wide range of applications across a wide range of end-use industries and every plastic resin has unique properties. Plastic resins are largely used in pharmaceutical industry for packaging of medical products that require good dimensional and heat stability and this is a key factor expected to drive market revenue growth over the forecast period. In addition, plastic resins are extensively used for packaging materials for food and beverages and this is another factor expected to contribute to market growth over the forecast period.

Plastic resins have been gaining preference for manufacturing of packaging materials due to numerous benefits and advantages. Plastic resins undergo cracking processes wherein the resins are created with high heat that breaks down and cracks the hydrocarbons. After cracking, different compounds created are then formed into chain and these different chains of polymers enabler resin manufacturers to create plastics with different characteristics. This further expands the application scope of plastic resins such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is used for manufacturing soft drink bottles and higher density polyethylene is used for thicker bottles. Plastic resins, such as PET, are widely used in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry owing to durability, scratch resistance, and excellent barrier properties. Majority of plastic containers used in clinical settings made from PET are lightweight and safe. Plastic resins are also used in the fibers that are used to manufacture carpets, microwavable containers, credit cards, bumpers of vehicles, and wallpapers, among others. In addition, increasing investment in building and infrastructure development has further boosted demand for plastic resins for production of materials and products such as insulation, roofing, and piping, among others are expected to contribute to revenue growth of the market going ahead. Plastic resins can be easily recycled and this has further boosted use across various end-use industries and is expected to further contribute to revenue growth of the market over the forecast period.

However, volatility of raw materials prices due to variation in crude oil prices and challenges with the global supply chain of plastic resins are some key factors expected to restrain market revenue growth to some extent over the forecast period.
