Polycarbonate (PC) Producers and Polycarbonate (PC) Market Trend
Polycarbonate (PC) is an engineering plastic with high impact resistance, transparency, and heat and cold resistance. Linear polymers containing carbonic acid groups in the molecular chain can be divided into aliphatic PC, aromatic PC, aliphatic-aromatic PC. The most important industrial PC product is aromatic PC (bisphenol A type PC).
The global polycarbonate market size grows from 4.5 million tons in 2017 to 5.3 million tons in 2022, with a CAGR of 3.3% from 2017 to 2022. The global polycarbonate market size is expected to grow to 6.0 million tons in 2027, with a CAGR of 2.5% from 2022 to 2027.
