The global market for High Temperature Plastics (HTPs) is forecast to reach US$21 billion by 2024, driven by technological advancements in the materialís structural strength, thermal performance and function. Other major factors driving adoption of HTPs include production savings of about one-fourth per unit for manufacturers as a result of lower power consumption, superior physical durability, flexibility and chemical resistance. The medical devices sector is forecast to bring in new opportunities for growth as a result of increased use of plastics in manufacturing medical equipment and implants. The United States represents the largest market supported by the replacement of traditional materials such as glass, metal and other polymers with HTPs due to distinct features which makes them suitable for a plethora of applications such as transportation, electrical goods and advanced electronics. The Rest of World market comprising Asia-Pacific, Canada, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, is projected to record the fastest compounded annual growth rate of 8.1% over the analysis period. In Asia-Pacific, migration of production activities to low cost Southeast Asian economies, and new demands on production standards and quality are driving demand for superior, new generation HTPs.
