High performance plastics are used in applications demanding higher requirements than standard and engineering plastics because of their high strength, good chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, performance at high temperatures, high quality electrical resistance. Major demand driver for the consumption of high performance plastics is the metal and other low performance materials replacement in demanding applications such as automotive, aerospace, electronics and medical, where high temperature resistance and strength is required. In the automotive & transportation industry including aerospace, growth is supported by metal replacement to reduce weight, while thinner and smaller components in electrical & electronics.

This global report analyzes the high performance plastics comprising Fluoropolymers (PTFE, PVDF, FEP, PCTFE, PFA, PVF, ECTFE and ETFE), High Performance Polyamides (PA 11, PA12, PA 46, PA 9T, PPA and PARA), Sulfone Polymers (PESU, PSU and PPSU), Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS), Liquid Crystal Polymers (LCP), Polyetherimide (PEI) and Polyetheretherketone (PEEK). The study also analyzes the key end-use sectors of high performance plastics including Automotive & Transportation, Building & Construction, Consumer Goods, Electrical & Electronics, Mechanical/Industrial and Others (such as Medical etc.).
