EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The report titled “Japan Engineering Plastics Market Outlook to 2018 - Led by buoyant demand from Automotive and Electronics sector” provides a comprehensive analysis of the various aspects such as market size, segmentation and future projections of the PET resin, Polyamide resin, ABS resin, Polyacetal resin, Polycarbonate, SAN, PBT and other types of engineering plastics that have been taken as key segments of the market. This report also offers prevalent trends and developments in Japan Engineering Plastics Industry, Government regulations, SWOT analysis of the Industry. The report also covers the competitive landscape of the Industry in which the information related to the major players has been comprehensively presented. It also includes information on the major macroeconomic indicators affecting the market and future outlook of the engineering plastics industry of Japan by key segments including analyst’s take on the industry.

One of the most imperative types of plastics is engineering plastics, which is used to have wide applications across a gamut of industries. These plastics tend to have superior mechanical properties, relative to what commodity plastic possesses. The engineering plastic market in Japan during late 1990’s was not much developed. Demand for engineering plastics in Japan was ~ tonnes in 1991. Although, the average growth of the engineering plastic was decreasing because of the recession and the presence of metals as the next best substitute, demand for better heat resistance automobiles was inclining, primarily in the electrical and electronic industries. The engineering plastic market has been transformed in the recent years, owing to its superiority over metals, which imparts high heat resistance to the end product and reduces the weight of the end products heavily. Engineering plastics have gradually replaced traditional engineering materials such as wood or metal in various applications. With better properties such as lower weight and higher strength, engineering plastics are much easier to manufacture, especially in complicated shapes.

PET is the largest segment in Japan engineering plastic market, owing to its widespread applications in end user industries especially under consumer appliances, electronics and automation sector. The production for this segment has been posted at ~ tonnes during 2013. PET engineering plastic in Japan, has constituted a significant part of the market owing to its significant demand from packaging industries, which has augmented at a moderate growth rate. The demand for packaging industries over the last couple of years has widely enhanced, owing to surge in personal disposal income of Japanese population, as well as extensive surge of the youth population. ABS is another major segment of Japan engineering plastic market occupying ~% share in domestic sales value, owing to its widespread applications in automotive industries, which has been growing at a very rapid pace.

The engineering plastic industry in Japan has been primarily dominated by the PET engineering plastics resins, which has commanded a massive share of ~% in the overall revenues of the engineering plastic industry during 2013.
The sales revenue of engineering plastic market in Japan is expected to notice a swift expansion especially during 2014 for majority of the products. Japan engineering plastic market in the outlook period, is likely to augment at a positive yet slow CAGR of 1.7% during 2013-2018, supported by surging growth of end user industries majorly automotive and electrical and electronics equipment industries. This trend is projected to escort the market revenues to USD ~ million by 2018. The growth in the engineering plastic market in the near term is expected to revive, since the business confidence and demand has been improving, after the Great East Japan earthquake which has severely influenced the growth frontiers of the Japanese economy.
