High-temperature Thermoplastic Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the High-temperature Thermoplastic Market according to our research experts:

Increasing High-temperature Thermoplastic in Automotive Industry

  • High-temperature thermoplastics are plastics that retain their physical properties at higher temperatures and exhibit thermal stability even in the longer run. Additionally, they have higher heat deflection temperatures and glass transition temperatures.
  • High-temperature thermoplastics are used to manufacture demanding applications in the automotive industry due to its valued properties such as high heat resistance, dimensional stability, strength, and resistance to a range of chemicals. Additionally, these properties have led to the replacement of traditional materials such as metal and thermosets.
  • Automotive is the largest market sector for high-temperature thermoplastics such as PPS, PEI, and PEEK.
  • The automotive sector is one of the largest markets for composite materials, and the industry is continuously looking for innovative materials such as high-temperature thermoplastic to reduce vehicle weight and achieve fuel efficiency and carbon emission targets.
  • Hence, owing to the factors mentioned above, the application of high-temperature thermoplastic in the automotive industry is likely to dominate during the forecast period.
