The South Korea Engineering Plastics Market Size is Expected to Reach USD 7.88 Billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 7.10% during the forecast period 2023 to 2033.

 

Market Overview

Engineering plastics are high-quality polymers that are used to improve the mechanical and thermal properties of plastics in order to meet higher demands. Traditional engineering materials such as wood and metals have already been replaced by engineering plastics. It's also used in applications where chemical resistance, wear resistance, structural stability, and dimensional stability are required. Engineering plastics are used in a variety of industries, including electronics, transportation, automotive, food, and manufacturing. Although engineering plastics are more expensive than conventional plastics, they are manufactured in smaller quantities and used for smaller items or low-volume applications (such as mechanical parts) rather than bulk and high-volume applications (such as containers and packaging). Engineering plastics are less difficult to manufacture, especially in intricate shapes, and they match or exceed them in weight/strength and other properties. Each engineering plastic has a unique set of characteristics that may make it an excellent choice for a specific application. Polycarbonates, for instance, are extremely impact resistant, whereas polyamides are extremely abrasion resistant.

Driving Factors

The South Korean market for engineering plastics is expanding rapidly due to increased demand from end-use industries, particularly automotive and transportation, and electrical and electronics. These end-users are expected to drive the market in the coming years. Engineering plastics are also in high demand in the electrical and electronics industries, owing to an increase in appliance sales ranging from televisions to iron boxes to refrigerators. These plastics are used in the production of consumer appliances.

 

Restraining Factors

Engineering plastics face stiff competition from other polymers, particularly in lower-end engineering resins. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), for example, is being challenged by commodity polymers such as polypropylene. Polypropylene is a flexible and tough material that performs well when copolymerized with ethylene. Other polymers pose a greater threat in cost-competitive markets such as consumer goods and appliances.

 

Market Segment

  • In 2023, the thermoplastic polyester segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the type, the South Korea engineering plastics market is segmented into thermoplastic polyester, polycarbonate (PC), polyamide (PA), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and others. Among these, the thermoplastic polyester segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Thermoplastic Polyester has excellent mechanical, thermal, chemical, and electrical properties and is resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, and abrasion. It is solvent-resistant and has strong electrical properties, making it ideal for use in electrical applications.

 

  • The industrial & machinery segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period.

Based on end-user, the South Korea engineering plastics market is segmented into automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, industrial & machinery, packaging, and others. Among these, the industrial & machinery segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. The rapid development of these industries should help the engineering plastics market grow. due to the superior properties of engineering plastics, the growing emphasis on reducing vehicle weight and improving fuel efficiency is expected to propel it to the top of the end-use industry list.
