Global Plastic Compounding Market to Grow at a CAGR of 7.7% During 2022-2027, Aided by Growing Demands from the Automotive Sector

Global Plastic Compounding Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Plastic Compounding Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global plastic compounding market attained a value of about USD 60.18 billion in 2021. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach nearly USD 93.69 billion by 2027.

The increasing use of plastic compounds like polypropylene (PP) in automotive components and parts to reduce their weight and overall costs is propelling the market growth for plastic compounding. The compounding of polypropylene with other materials boosts their performance and increases their consumption. Polypropylene compounds are also increasingly utilised as an alternative to engineering plastics owing to their excellent mouldable and mechanical properties.


Furthermore, the surging research and development (R&D) activities to improve compounding techniques of plastics are likely to fuel the growth of the plastic compounding market. Technological advancements and innovations in materials like nanocomposites and various reinforcing agents to provide unique properties to compounding plastics are also expected to propel the market growth.


The increasing manufacturing capabilities of plastic compounding by the leading companies are significantly contributing to the growth of the market. In September 2022, BASF SE (OTCMKTS: BASFY) inaugurated its first plant in Zhanjiang, China for engineering plastics compounds. The new plant would supply the company’s engineering plastic compounds with an enhanced capacity of 60,000 metric tonnes per year. The increased manufacturing capacity would aid electronics and automotive companies in addressing trends such as the miniaturisation of electronic devices and the electrification of cars.
