Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s4zm27/polymer_blends) has announced the addition of the “Polymer Blends and Alloys Market – Global Trends and Forecasts to 2020” report to their offering.

This report expects the global polymer blends and alloys to grow from USD 3.3 Billion in 2015 to USD 4.2 Billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.30% from 2015 to 2020.

The global polymer blends and alloys market has witnessed a strong growth in the past few years considering the high demand for polymer blends from end-use industries in the U.S., Germany, Italy, China, and Japan. Pultruded products are slowly entering the new application markets. The upcoming industrial developments and innovative technologies such as laptops, mobile phones, LEDs, TVs are using polymer blends as their core material, which in turn is driving the polymer blend and alloy market. However, the emphasis will be on current cost and their applications.

The polymer blends and alloys market is majorly dominated by PC-based blends and alloys because of its properties such as corrosion resistant, dielectric stability, and thermal resistance. They are widely used in commercial applications such as electronic components and construction materials. Polymer blends and alloys are being used in different applications due to its physical and mechanical properties such as lightweight, heat resistance, durability, chemical stability, thermal stability, recyclability, and dimensional stability. In Asia, the current economic boom has boosted construction, electronics, and automotive sectors and this will eventually help increase the demand for polymer blends in the region.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of polymer blends and alloys. China and Japan are important consumers of polymer blends. Asia-Pacific and Europe are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demand, respectively. Some of the factors for the market growth are superior end-use industry growth, amplified local manufacturing, and increased number of domestic players in vertical market segments, for example, automotive applications.
