The hottest plastic products replace metal product

  • Detail

Plastic products replace metal products is the development trend

plastic can not only be used for building insulation, but also widely used in manufacturing, because it is more energy-saving than other materials. For example, replacing steel with plastic in the manufacture of auto parts can reduce the self weight of the car, thus helping to reduce fossil fuel consumption

now, the application of plastics has shown a horizontal development state, and plastics are playing an increasingly important role in various industrial fields. Before 2015, the global plastic market will continue to grow at an average annual rate of 5%. Because the development of urbanization and globalization has become the general trend, while the demand for energy and climate protection measures also promote the growing demand for plastic products

plastic products replacing metal products is the development trend

in 2009, the global polymer consumption reached 176 million tons, of which polyethylene accounted for about 38% of the total consumption, close to 67 million tons, and the demand will exceed 87 million tons by 2014; In 2009, the demand for high density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for about 17% of the global total polymer, about 30million tons. In addition, the demand for linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) accounts for about 11% and 10% respectively. Affected by the increased application of packaging and plastic non durable goods, the demand growth rate of LLDPE and HDPE is extremely strong

Stephen Newlin, President of PolyOne, said that the polyolefin market grew strongly in the first half of 2010, reaching a double-digit growth rate. Looking ahead, the situation is also optimistic. Because the current market is developing towards green, environment-friendly and sustainable materials, it is the general trend that plastic products replace metal products: 2% of the full scale ⑴ 00% FS

automobile manufacturing has become a new starting point for the development of the plastic market

at present, in Western Europe, the proportion of plastics in automobile manufacturing has increased from 6% in 1970 to about 15% now, and it is expected that this proportion may rise to more than 25% by 2020. In China, the use of plastics in the automotive industry is only about half of that in Europe, while the use of high-end engineering plastics is lower. However, the automobile industry in developing countries, especially China, continues to grow in the good situation of economic recovery. In 2009, China overtook Japan as the world's largest auto manufacturer, and in 2010, it overtook the United States as the world's largest auto market

at present, the demand for automobiles is recovering, and the prospect is optimistic in the long run. In 2010, the sales volume of cars in North America is expected to be 11.5 million, while about 12million cars are scrapped in the United States every year, so there is still potential in mature markets. The plastic industry will continue to benefit from this market due to the development of light, efficient and energy-saving vehicles. At present, more than 14% of the greenhouse gases in the world have passed the maturity period of commodities, and light composite materials can reduce the vehicle weight by 30%, so as to significantly reduce fuel consumption and achieve the effect of reducing greenhouse gas emissions

replacing steel with plastic in the manufacturing of auto parts can reduce the self weight of the car, thus helping to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. At present, the plastic content in cars made in China is only half of that in Western Europe, which provides a huge business opportunity for plastic manufacturers. The rise of Asia will become a new driving force for the plastic market

Asia will become the region with the fastest growth in plastic demand in the world. Since 2007, plastic consumption in Asia has exceeded that of Europe and North America combined. Sanjay, India marketing manager of CMAI Dubai branch Sharma said: the international plastic industry is developing at a rapid speed, and China, Northeast Asia and the Middle East are leading the strong growth of global polyolefin demand

in the foreseeable future, Asia will become a rapid growth area of global plastics. Since 2007, consumption in this region has exceeded that of Europe and North America combined

stimulated by the strong demand growth of emerging economies such as China, India, Latin America and central Europe, it is expected that the global polymer market will increase rapidly in the next five years, and plastic resin suppliers, plastic machinery manufacturers and plastic processors around the world are also encouraged

BASF global chemical will also focus on investing in new plants and R & D facilities in Asia. In order to meet the growing demand for special plastics, BASF will also expand the production capacity of biodegradable plastics and build a new polyurethane plant in Shanghai

as the largest country in Asia, China's plastic products industry has achieved leapfrog development and become a major country in the production, consumption and export of plastic products in the world. In five years, the total assets of the industry reached 840 billion. The number of Enterprises above designated size has exceeded 20000. The growth rate of output value increased by 2.8 times, the output increased by 2.65 times, and the average annual growth rate was 20.54. Five years ago, the cumulative profit increased by 25% annually. The cumulative export was 840million US dollars, with an average annual growth of 21.9%

the global plastic market has a steady and rapid growth prospect.

during the year, the global PE demand will increase at an average annual rate of about 5%, and by 2015, the global PE demand will reach about 90million tons/year; In the same period, PP demand will grow rapidly at an average annual rate of about 6%, and the global PP demand will reach about 63 million tons/year by 2015. From a global perspective, Asia will be the region with the fastest growth rate of PE and PP demand, as the region continues to promote the industrialization process. Meanwhile, polyolefin production capacity in the Middle East and Asia will continue to expand. The new production capacity of PE and PP in China is being driven by the healthy growth of automotive market demand, while the new production capacity in the Middle East is mainly driven by the advantage of low-cost raw materials. By 2016, the Middle East and China will account for 33% and 34% of the global PE production capacity

supported by the recovery of demand for automobiles and electronic and electrical products, the global demand for easy to operate plastics will reach 20million tons in 2015

according to the latest research report released by the global industry analysis agency GIA, Europe and the Asia Pacific region are still the global engineering plastics demand, which still accounts for a large share of the market. At the same time, the global engineering plastics production base has gradually shifted to some low-cost Asian regions. The report points out that with the prosperity and development of the automobile industry in emerging regions such as China and India, these regions will become medium - and long-term customers of this growth

the growth of polycarbonate (PC) will stimulate the expansion, in addition to increasing the combination of PC and other plastic alloys, and the application of automotive, construction and medical products. Due to the demand for automotive, medical and construction products, it is expected that the fastest growing demand for engineering plastics is PC resin. Super engineering plastics, with high heat resistance, are widely used in the electrical components of hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles, and the demand will grow strongly. Engineering plastics will play to the extreme in the automotive industry and really help the automotive industry reduce its carbon footprint due to the CPU of computers. Therefore, lightweight composite nylon resin has become the best choice in automobile production, especially in the application of engine hood

due to the increasing demand for environment-friendly products such as hybrid electric vehicles, electric vehicles and energy-saving products, the demand for reinforced plastics will reach 73 million tons by 2015. Europe, Asia Pacific and America have become the main market sources of reinforced plastics in the world, and the main markets of reinforced plastics for automobiles and architects

in 2011, our view of the industry is peaceful, optimistic and steady development. Although there are some factors that are not conducive to the development of the industry and promote the operation of the development of the industry, the prospect of the plastic market is still very good. With the extensive deepening of the application of plastics and its reflected horizontal intervention direction, the future plastic industry will maintain a stable situation, while driving the economic development of industries including industry, agriculture and automobile manufacturing, and become a new hot spot of economic growth
