Consumer Electronics Plastics Market Report 2021-2028: Rising Demand from Smartphone and Wearable Industry


DUBLIN, November 12, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The Consumer Electronics Plastics Market Size, Share and Trend Analysis Report by Product (PC, PC / ABS), by Application (Laptop Monitor Housings, Wearable Devices), by region and segment forecast, 2021-2028 “ the report was added to offer.

The global market size of plastics in consumer electronics is expected to reach USD 7.70 billion by 2028. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2021 to 2028. The growing demand from the industry of smartphones and wearable products are expected to fuel demand. for plastics in consumer electronics. The smartphone market offers opportunities for using a variety of plastic resins, such as polycarbonate (PC), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), as they are used for manufacturing lightweight and durable electronic device enclosures, mounting frames, screen frames and vibration pads.

Proximity to raw material suppliers and low labor costs attract consumer electronics manufacturers to China. The presence of several key consumer electronics manufacturers is expected to create significant demand for plastics. In addition, the growing demand for home appliances in India is expected to boost the product demand in the electronics industry. In addition, rapid urbanization is expected to boost demand for mobile phones, laptops, televisions and other electronic devices across India.

Metal alloys have been widely used in the manufacture of electronic components. Alloys are preferred because of their durability and better thermal conduction properties. For example, 7000 series and 6000 series grade aluminum alloys are mainly used in laptop chassis or sometimes for their entire case. For example, the lower chassis of Apple’s Mac Book is made of aluminum. IPhone and iPad cases are also made of aluminum alloys.

The lifespan of consumer electronics technology is less because after the product is launched, competitors go through reverse engineering processes to develop a similar or updated version of the technology. As a result, older versions of the products are often thrown away by consumers. With the growth of technologically advanced equipment, there is no meaningful system to handle old discarded products, which has resulted in the growth of electronic waste.

Highlights of the Consumer Electronics Plastics Market Report

  • In terms of revenue, PC products segment accounted for the largest share in 2020 and is expected to grow further at a stable CAGR during the forecast period.

  • The laptop monitor case segment dominated the market and accounted for over 22% of the overall revenue share in 2020

  • In 2020, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the maximum revenue share of the global market and will further grow at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028.

  • This growth is attributed to the presence of a well-established manufacturing base for electrical and electronics in China, Japan and South Korea.

  • The main players are constantly working on the development of biodegradable polymers due to growing environmental concerns

  • For example, in November 2020, SABIC announced the expansion of its product portfolio of Cycoloy and Lexan PC resins with post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials for application in consumer electronics, such as laptops, copiers, printers, adapters and chargers to improve plastic recyclability
