Global polymers market was valued at around USD670 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. Polymers are the chains of monomer units. The physical properties of final materials are determined by the structural and chemical composition of the chain. Increasing demand for polymers from various industries like healthcare, construction, packaging, automobiles, among others for the manufacturing of adhesives elastomers, and surface coatings is the key factor contributing to the growth of global polymers market during the forecast years. Moreover, end user industries are using polymers to substitute glass, paper and metals attributable to their low weight and cost, which is anticipated to bolster the growth of global polymers market over the coming years. Also, population in developing economies is increasing significantly, which is leading to increase in consumer purchasing power, which in turn, is anticipated to strengthen the global polymers market through 2025.

The global polymers market is segmented based on type, product, application, region and company. Based on application, the market can be segmented into packaging, electronics, food, petrochemicals, healthcare, building & construction, electronics & communication and transportation. Among them, the packaging segment dominated the market until 2019 and is projected to maintain its lead over the forecast period as well because packaging is involved in every industrial sphere, such as food packaging, medical packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging etc.  

Major players operating in the global polymers market include DuPont de Nemours, Inc., SABIC, LyondellBasell Industries N.V., Exxon Mobil Corporation, BASF SE, INEOS AG, Eni S.p.A., Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC, LANXESS Corporation, Covestro AG and others.
