FILLED PERFORMANCE POLYMERS
ARE KEY FOR THE COMPOSITES INDUSTRY
Group contains PA, PBT, PP (short
fiber), LFTP (long fiber), and other
Est. 1,300Kt - relatively good
growth predicted driven by
continued material substitution in
automotive
Reinforced with glass fiber to
enhance performance / durability
in their applications
Producers seek to enhance
performance and lower the average
cost of the engineered plastic

Segmentation
Global car production forecasts thru
2021 show 2015 at 90MM units,
increasing to 106MM units by 2021.
Most growth will come from the
world’s emerging BRIC market
economies.
Expect limited growth in developed
countries. Instead changes in
regulations, functional integration,
and safety will transform developed
light-vehicle markets.
 Improve fuel efficiencies
 New OEM & market concentration
