    Segments' Analysis

    By Plastic Type

    Based on the plastic type, the plating on plastics market is segmented as ABS, polycarbonate, PC/ABS, PEI-Ultem, PET, PBT, LCB, PEEK, PP, nylon, and others. ABS is highly considered for chrome plated plastics. The growth of the segment is attributed to its easy engraving and adhesive feature of key raw materials including copper, nickel, and chromic acid. Further, ABS is an amorphous blend of acrylonitrile, styrene, and butadiene, and is of low cost as compared to other plastic types and also, easy to metalize. ABS resins are mainly used to mold parts which require close dimensions offering high impact resistance, metal plating, and outstanding finishing of surfaces. The product offers good dimensional stability, low weight, good toughness & rigidity, low creep and acid & alkalis resistive features fueling the market growth during the forecast period.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the plating on plastics market is segmented as automotive, domestic fittings, E&E, and others. Factors such as growing sales of automotive, which is positively influencing the demand for plating on plastics as it helps in improving the aesthetic appeal of the vehicle and is attracting mass consumers, accompanied by growth in lightweight plastics demand for an increased efficiency of fuel, and increasing emergence for decreasing automotive weight to lower the consumption of fuel are expected to fast-track the growth of the market during the forecast period.

    By Region

    In terms of regions, North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the emergence of latest technologies including IoT solutions, robotics and virtual reality in consumer electronic products manufacturing for achieving efficient and less expensive production in the regional consumer electronics market during the forecast period.
