Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • Polypropylene (PP) segment is expected to account for largest revenue share in the global thermoforming plastic market over the forecast period. PP responds strongly to injection pressure and speed, as well as builds up rapidly in the mold, which, in turn, enables the molder to achieve a high level of production. This gives PP a distinct place in the manufacturing of thermoforming plastics in the plastic molding industry. It also provides excellent resistance to friction and chemicals, better size stability, and an improved complete surface finish.
  • Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) segment is expected to register significant revenue growth over the forecast period. This is attributable to the benefits it provides such as high surface hardness, light transmission, and long service life, as well as good weathering and UV light resistance. It is environmentally friendly and fully recyclable.
  • Thin gauge segment is expected to register significant revenue growth over the forecast period. Thin gauge thermoforming plastics are used in the healthcare sector for making various products such as medical device packaging trays.
  • Food packaging segment is expected to account for larger revenue share in the global thermoforming plastic market over forecast period, owing to increasing demand microwaveable containers, disposable products, sandwich packs, cups, and trays. The spread of COVID-19 virus has also increasing consumer awareness about the importance of hygiene and sanitization, resulting in growing demand for high-quality packaged foods.
  • North America is anticipated to account for a significant revenue share in the global thermoforming plastic market over the forecast period, owing to rapid industrialization and ongoing technological improvement in the packaging industry. Also, increased usage of thermoforming plastics in the food industry for the packaging of vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, confectionery, poultry, and ready meals is driving demand for thermoforming plastics in this region. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to high demand for plastics in the production of medicine packaging, medical trays, syringes, and others.
