Drivers and Restraints: 

The automotive sector is proving to be a major industry propelling the growth of the engineering plastic market. At present, this industry is experiencing a need to replace metal. Engineering plastic is a perfect replacement owing to its similar properties to metal and being lightweight in nature. The other potent factor is its lower manufacturing time and higher tensile strength. This can also replace die-casted metal parts for thin-walled designs.

Other industries, such as electronics and electrical appliances are looking for materials that can reduce weight. Engineering plastic has future prospects in spaceship construction projects in the aerospace industry.   

However, it is also facing tough competition from other materials such as polymers. Also, high-production cost, fluctuating price of crude oil, and regulatory challenges regarding CO2 emissions can restrain the global engineering plastic market growth.

Further, the benefits of technical properties such as opacity, color consistency, and good dispersion are likely to escalate the market reach. Another important factor in market growth is the growing application of plastics as an alternative to metals in the manufacture of automotive components. In addition, the implementation of strict rules and regulations with respect to emission and the increasing demand from the packaging industry is likely to magnify the market size.

However, the concerns regarding the heavy prices of color masterbatch, such as large equipment, production space, and related expenses, are anticipated to hamper the market growth. However, masterbatch is gaining momentum as a capable coloring method, which will accelerate the market size.

Engineering Plastic Market - Eminent Firms:
I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.)Evonik Industries AG (Germany)Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation (Japan)LG Chem Ltd. (South Korea)Lanxess AG (Germany)Celanese Corporation (US)Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Saudi Arabia), and others.

On the flipside, fluctuating raw material prices are considered to restrict the market growth in the coming years. Strict government mandates restricting the use of sulfuric acid is likely to hinder the market growth. Moreover, ill effects of sulfuric acid on human health like irritation in the eyes and skin and skin sensitiveness are expected to vitiate the market growth in the coming years.

A naturally occurring, non-toxic mineral deposit, barite exhibits various properties which make it ideal for use in oil & gas drilling, in the analysis of oxygen & sulfur isotopic, as a filler in paint & plastics, in automobile finishes for corrosion resistance, and several others ranging across several end-use industries. Increasing commercialization and urbanization, particularly in emerging markets, the automotive sector, among others is growing at a rapid pace and is expected to increase demand for barium amongst industries. Moreover, oil & gas activities are growing rapidly due to the high demand for fuel.

The availability of various substitutes such as iron ore, hematite, and celestite are expected to hinder market growth due to their reduced prices and the fact that some of these can be synthetically produced. However, barite is still the most preferred material in oil & gas applications which is expected to encourage market growth. Moreover, its applications in the absorption of x-rays and gamma rays make it useful in the medical sector as well as to make special containers to store radioactive materials which are likely to encourage market expansion.
