The Europe plastic compounding market size is projected to reach USD 18.4 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Plastic consumption has increased rapidly in automotive and electrical and electronics industries. This can be attributed to regulatory intervention to improve fuel efficiency by reducing vehicle weight, thus reducing carbon emissions. This trend has driven automotive OEMs to adopt plastics as a substitute for metals such as steel and aluminum for fabricating automotive components.
The compounding industry is a key component of the Europe plastics industry. The number of compounders in Central and Eastern Europe is increasing rapidly. Of the total compounding facilities in Europe, only 10% are fully integrated. However, these compounders manage about 50% of the overall demand in the region. Exports from Poland and Hungary have witnessed a significant increase since 2016.
The European market has witnessed a progressive increase in consumption of white goods, especially in the electronics industry. Plastics are used extensively in manufacturing white goods due to its properties such as electrical insulation, heat insulation, lightweight, design flexibility, durability, and energy-efficiency.
They are used in the production of hygienic and attractive knobs, liners, handles, door facings and internal fittings on refrigerators, housings tops, and lids or closures of dishwashers and washing machines. Increasingly aging European population and cost pressures on the healthcare sector have further increased need for electronic innovations.
