Cast Polymers Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Market-Growth-Drivers

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Applications in Medical Industry - Cast polymers also inhibit the formation of mold and bacteria and are considered hygienic which makes them perfect for use in medical facilities.
  • Growing Marine Sector- Cast polymers are often used in the marine sector owing to their water-resistant properties.
  • Increasing Popularity of Casting Resins- Epoxy resin coatings and casting are two different yet related substances that are used in the production of rubber, ABS, polypropylene, acrylic, nylon, and glass-filled nylon as they are an extremely resilient polymer that is resistant to deterioration from water and other environmental elements.
  • Adoption of Sustainable Practices- Cast polymer materials support environmental objectives as these products are manufactured from recycled materials, and have a longer lifespan, which eventually results in lower maintenance and replacement expenses making them an environmentally friendly option for building projects.

Challenges

  • Presence of Alternatives Such as Natural Stone and Wood- Many individuals believe that stone which includes granite, marble, limestone, travertine, slate, and sandstone performs better than solid surface. has always been regarded as a superior building material that embodies grandeur, character, and solidity. Natural stone is widely acknowledged as a durable, solid, and ageless building material that has been utilized in the construction of renowned historical buildings, monuments, and artwork worldwide. Additionally, wood offers exceptional barrier qualities and is free from toxins, allergies, isocyanates, plastic additives, latex, or dust.
  • Expensive Cost of Cast Polymers Owing to the Involvement of Intricate Molds and Skilled Labor
  • Varying Prices of Raw Materials such as Fiberglass and Aluminum Trihydrate May Increase the Overall Cost of Production-


Cast Polymers Segmentation

Application (Countertops, Vanity Tops, Sinks and Basins, Shower Pans and Walls, Tub Surrounds)

The countertops segment in the cast polymers market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 32% in the coming years impelled by the increasing number of houses. Every new home requires kitchen and bathroom surfaces which is expected to boost the demand for a countertop that is also referred to as a bunker, counter, benchtop, worktop, or kitchen bench which is a raised, hard, flat, and horizontal surface and is designed to be used in regular workrooms, restrooms, and kitchens or other areas where food is prepared.

These countertops are often made from cast polymers such as cultured marble, onyx, and solid surfaces, which are self-structural resist breaking, and are simple to maintain.

Moreover, cultured marble vanity tops provide a smooth, multipurpose look and cost less than granite. They are one of the most fashionable countertop options, which is highly recommended by both interior designers and homeowners. Besides this, onyx is one of the priciest natural stone countertops and is a popular choice for homeowners seeking a material that resembles marble. According to estimates, in 2021, more than 302 million homes were in India.

End-User (Residential, Commercial, Industrial)

The residential segment in the cast polymers market is set to garner a notable share shortly. Products made of cast polymer are mostly utilized in residential settings as the majority of the rise in demand for cast polymers is attributed to home remodeling projects as they can be molded into surfaces for sinks, countertops, shower walls, bathtubs, and even window sills and are less prone to damage and discoloration than natural marble and stone.

Besides this, the demand for cast polymer materials used in commercial construction including public utilities such as schools, hospitals, and transit facilities is rising globally. Cast polymer products are easy to maintain, and available in a range of colors and styles which makes them the best option for large hotel chains and stores.

Material (Alumina Trihydrate, Calcium Carbonate, Resins, Natural Stone)

The alumina trihydrate segment is anticipated to gain a noteworthy revenue share during the forecast timeframe. Cast polymers are composed of several types of polymeric ingredients including alumina trihydrate which is the most commonly used flame retardant in the world. It is an odorless, inert filler powder that comes in various uncoated and coated grades and is mostly used to increase the weight and lessen shrinkage of cast polymer products.

Type (Solid Surface, Engineered Stone, Cultured Marble)

The engineered stone segment in the cast polymers market is poised to gain a remarkable revenue share. Engineered stone, is made by combining natural stone components with polymer casting resins which are the most durable cast polymer products that possess excellent stain and scratch resistance, low thermal expansion, and strong heat resistance.

Additionally, a solid surface is a synthetic substance that can be designed to resemble actual granite and is frequently employed in the production of goods including kitchen countertops.
