LONDON - Feb. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- TechNavio, the independent London-based global research firm, today announced the publication of its research report on the Global Polycarbonate Market. The report finds that higher demand from the automotive industry is responsible for the growth of the Global Polycarbonate Market over the forecast period of 2014-2018.

Over the years, increased use of engineering resins in automobile manufacturing has led to  a greater demand for polycarbonates. These materials can be easily molded and thermoformed, and as such are finding many applications in the industry.

Polycarbonates is being used in various automotive industry components, like instrument panels, center consoles, door panels, roof components, rear windshield glazing, wheel covers, door handles, interior trims, headlight lenses and housings, and bumpers.

Globally, the polycarbonate market is highly fragmented with the presence of several vendors. Two of the key vendors in this market—Bayer MaterialScience and Saudi Basic Industries— are leading chemical production companies with a vast geographical presence and strong holdings in the polycarbonate business. In addition, there are a large number of smaller vendors with regional dominance operating in this market.
