Thermoplastic polyester engineering resins (TPER) are sometimes referred to as terephthalate engineering resins. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polycyclohexylene dimethylene terephthalate, and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) are terephthalate industrial resins that are made of thermoplastic polyester (PCT). These resins are flexible liner concentration polymers based on dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) or terephthalic acid (TPA) but on various glycols. These resins can be used without a filer or reinforcement for a variety of non-structural uses. The growing demand from the automotive industry for the product has been driving market growth.
Thermoplastic polyester engineering resins are high-performance materials used in the automotive industry because of less cost, flexibility in shape, high chemical tolerance, and appearance. Increasing demand for lightweight materials from automotive industry is boosting demand for polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins due to their high molecular weight, and high-performance materials. Furthermore, the growing demand for electric vehicles in India, China, and U.S. with the support of many government initiatives is fostering demand for thethermoplastic polyester engineering resin market.
Participants in the market can anticipate difficulties and growth hindrances due to complex production methods. As well as some types of low-quality thermoplastics melt, when they are exposed to prolonged amounts of direct sunlight or ultraviolet light, and some thermoplastics deteriorate. Thus, some environmental rules are predicted to impede market expansion due to strict directives of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and European Union (EU).
Market players operating in the thermoplastic polyester engineering resins are BASF SE, LG Chemicals, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Company, and Bayer Material Science. It is anticipated that significant R&D by businesses, like DuPont, and Mitsubishi Chemicals, geared toward product innovation and will increase market competitiveness. Companies frequently form strategic partnerships, such as supply contracts and distribution agreements, with different suppliers of plastic resin to market their products. Such strategies are helping manufacturing companies to establish their strong hold in the global market
