Polyester Blend Market was valued at USD 11781.41 million in 2022 and is
anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.35% during the forecast period, owing to growing
utilization of polycarbonate polyester blend in automotive industry for the
manufacture of sunroofs and windowpanes, among others.
Polycarbonates are a class of
thermoplastic polymers with carbonate functional groups in their basic chemical
structure. Polyester is a type of polymer that contains the ester group in
every repeat unit of the main chain. Also, as a specific material, they are
most referred to as a type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
Polycarbonate and Polyester materials, when conjugated together, provide
several properties to the manufactured goods, such as good heat absorption,
moisture resistance, chemical resistance, and electrical resistance.
Growing Demand from Automotive Industry Driving
Blends of polycarbonate have gained in
commercial significance, recently. Due to its good compatibility with a variety
of polymers, polycarbonate is utilised in blends. The necessity to make
automobiles lighter-weight and the increased need for environmentally friendly
external body construction, support the growth of the global polycarbonate
polyester blend market throughout the forecast period. Vehicle's weight can influence fuel
usage by up to 75%. Therefore, the automotive designers, who are
constantly seeking methods to improve the cars, put a strong emphasis on
decreasing car's weight, according to feasibility, due to which, they are
increasingly substituting polycarbonate polyester blend for glass and metal.
This plastic is crucial for improving fuel efficiency and lowering CO2
emissions because it is much lighter while being as durable. The material also
enables significant safety to the driver and the passenger in case of sudden
combustion and gives them chance to escape.
