    Market Insights

    Transparent plastics market is expected to grow from USD 103.9 billion in 2021 to USD 159.04 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 6.14% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.


    What are transparent plastics?

    Transparent plastics are malleable above a specific temperature and return to their original, solid state on cooling. They possess properties such as recyclability, resistance to corrosion and chemicals, low electrical and thermal conductivity, shock resistance, water resistance, durability, light weight, and others.

    Market Drivers

    Few of the prime factors contributing to the demand for transparent plastics are mainly the increasing adoption of transparent plastics by end-use industries which is creating high demand in emerging regions, improved shelf-life of packaged food products, and ease of customization. Increasing demand for transparent plastics from the packaging industry can be attributed to their moisture barrier, micro-organisms repelling, and corrosion resistant characteristics that result in increased shelf life of products. Increasing use of transparent plastics in pharmaceutical, FMCG packaging, and electric vehicles is also expected to drive the market. Fluctuating raw material prices and environmental concerns may challenge the market growth during the forecast period.
