Polycarbonates are one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics that are derived from carbonate monomers. The flexibility, impact resistance, optical properties, and exceptional light transmission properties position them between commodity and engineering plastics. Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonates can undergo large plastic deformations without breaking or cracking. Thus it finds many applications such as automotive, consumer goods, electrical & electronic, medical, optical media, packaging, sheet film, and others (aerospace, gadgets, and so on.)

 

The European polycarbonate market constitutes 16.0% of the global polycarbonate market and is projected to have 15.0% market share by the end of 2019. The consumption of polycarbonate in European region was 533.3 KT in 2014, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% to 629.1 KT during the forecasted period, between 2014 and 2019. Overall, the European polycarbonate market is estimated to reach $2506.2 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 5.4%.

 

Europe is one of the largest markets for the end-user application industries; increasing demand from the automobile industry, consumer electronics, sheet/ films, and optical media drives the demand for  polycarbonate in the particular end segment .The European polycarbonate market has been segmented on basis of application and region.

 

Based on application, it is segmented into end-use market segments Consumer electronics industry is the largest end-use market of the PC in this region.  In 2014, the sheet/films application segment of the European polycarbonate market was valued at $1924.4 million, expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period.  It is expected to reach $2506.2 million by the end of 2019.

 

Based on region, it is segmented into major countries, Germany, France, Italy, the U.K., and Spain. Germany is the largest growing market in Europe. Germany polycarbonate market was valued at $709.1 million in 2014, expected to grow at 5.6% annually, and is projected to reach $929.9 million by the end of 2019. Consumer electronics followed by optical media and sheet films are the dominant application segments for polycarbonate.

 

Polycarbonate industry has witnessed several technological advancements in terms of processing methods, product applications and new product developments. Europe comprises developed countries with high technological advancement. The technological advancement in the region leads to high demand for the various advanced applications in the end-use markets which is the main factor responsible for the growth of this market in this region. The trend of growth in the demand of polycarbonate is expected to continue in the region in the near future as a result of the rebounding economy and advancement of the technology which is expected to drive the market.
