Polymers

Polymer contain natural or synthetic substances made up of very large molecules. Such a large molecule are also called macromolecules. Polymers make up many of the materials in living organisms, including, for example, proteins, cellulose and nucleic acids. In addition, they form the basis of minerals such as diamond, quartz and feldspar and man-made materials such as concrete, glass, paper, plastics and rubbers.

What is polymer?

The word polymer stands for an indefinite number of monomeric units. When the number of monomers is very large, the compound is called a high polymer. Polymers are not limited to monomers of the same chemical composition or molecular weight and structure. Some natural polymers consist of one type of monomer. However, most natural and synthetic polymers consist of two or more different types of monomers.

Polymer market trends

The global polymer market was valued at $533.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow to a total value of $838.5 billion by 2030.

Increasing demand for polymers from industries such as automotive, electronics, construction, water treatment, waste management and energy is ensuring continued growth of the global polymer market.

The electrical and electronics industries mainly use polymers such as polyphenylene sulfide, nylon 46, polythiazide and polycyclohexylene terephthalate. These polymers are often preferred because they can withstand high temperatures.

Moreover, recycling plastics and obtaining sustainable polymers is another important factor driving the growth of the polymers market. This is because because recycling ensures that the amount of plastics entering the waste stream is reduced. Plastic recycling involves recovering plastic waste by reprocessing it into useful products.

The high volatility of raw material prices and strict regulations of regulatory bodies of various countries are major factors that are expected to hinder the growth market of the can.
