Global Construction Plastics Market: Regional Outlook

Based on region, the global construction plastics market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific was a leading region of the global market in 2018, led by rapid industrialization and increase in personal disposable income of consumers in the region. Increase in demand for plastics in various end-use industries, such as construction, is also expected to boost the construction plastics market in the region. China is the largest producer of plastics. It manufactures plastics at low rates. Thus, Asia Pacific is an attractive region of the global construction plastics market. Shifting of the building & construction industry to Asia Pacific due to cheap labor, supportive government policies, and availability of natural resources is estimated to boost the construction plastics market in the region during the forecast period. In terms of demand, Asia Pacific is followed by North America. Rise in demand for renovation of old buildings in North America is likely to fuel the construction plastics market in the region.
