Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Europe Plastic Compounding Market

The Europe plastic compounding market size was valued at USD 12.5 billion in 2018 and is driven by increasing application in automotive and consumer appliances manufacturing. Polyurethane is most widely used as foam cushioning material in seats and insulation panels in automotive manufacturing.
Plastic compounding is an important process that determines the final product quality and various characteristics or attributes of the end product. In compounding, different materials are assorted, melted, and then granulated. The granules are processed into a finished or semi-finished part, which is durable and flexible.

Molding or extruding methods are employed for the processing of granules. The final product and its quality are based on the blend of materials used in the initial stage. Its use in Europe is regulated by stringent rules and guidelines regarding plastic waste disposal by European Union (EU). The local governments are also developing initiatives for recycling PET and PE.
U.K., led by the automotive industry, is the second largest market in Europe. The construction industry also holds a significant market share of around 15.0% in terms of revenue in U.K. The countrys construction industry is aided by recently sanctioned government budgets, coupled with foreign investments in the region to re-engineer the sector.
As per the government, U.K. is estimated to showcase up to 200,000 new houses under the HS2 housing project. The building and construction industry demands plastic compounds for various end uses such as manufacturing ducts and pipes, floor and wall coverings, linings and fitted furniture, and insulations.
Increasing automotive production and subsequent rise in plastic consumption in automotive component fabrication as a result of regulatory policies are expected to drive the market in Europe over the forecast period. Polyamide (PA) compounds, particularly PA6 and PA66, are being widely used in automotive applications that comprise pedal boxes engine covers, radiator tanks, and several other components.
European manufacturers are experiencing more difficulties due to high costs of natural gas and electricity. Gas prices in the region remain around 2.5 times higher than those in U.S. The region requires a significant amount of oil imports to meet its local demand, which is adding to the final product cost. High prices of power raise the cost of manufacturing of all chemicals, but a few see a particularly significant increase downstream.

Polypropylene compounds dominate the European market owing to their application in core manufacturing sectors such as automotive, construction and electrical and electronics. Rapid growth in the regional automotive industry is the primary factor behind growing demand for polypropylene compounds.

Widespread acceptance of these products can be attributed to their cost-effectiveness, good chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties, and moldability. Automotive sales in the European Union Free Trade Agreement (EU28) countries presented an increase by 8.2% in 2017 and the European Union reflected a rise of 8.4% in 2017.
PET is the most commonly used product in Europe as well as globally and has been witnessing a rapidly increasing demand. These compounds are used across automotive, packaging, textiles, and other industries. Its rising demand has led various leading companies to develop methods to recycle PET, thus addressing issues pertaining to its disposal. Development of bio-based PET is expected to provide the much-needed solution for internal substitution.
