The global Low Profile Additives Market has been segmented by technique, product, end-use industry, and region.
By technique, the global Low Profile Additives Market has been segmented into sheet molding compound (SMC), bulk molding compound (BMC), resin transfer molding (RTM), and pultrusion. The sheet molding compound segment is expected to account for the majority market share as the product is cost-effective, light weight, and reduces industry scrap. Also, it can be easily produced in high volumes. Although SMC and BMC possess the same properties such as dimensional stability, high strength, and corrosion resistance, the BMC segment is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. This can be attributed to the increasing adoption of BMC in the electronics industry as it is fire- and flame-resistant.
Based on product, the market has been segmented into polyvinyl acetate (PVA), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polystyrene (PS), and high density polyethylene (HDPE). The PVA segment is expected to account for the largest market share due to the extensive use of the product in the production of automotive parts such as headlamp reflectors, lighting systems, under-the-hood components, and LED lighting. PMMA is widely used as a shatterproof replacement for glass and has various advantages over polystyrene such as high resistance to UV light and weathering, excellent light transmission, and a wide range of color options.
The market has been segmented, by end-use industry, into automotive, construction, military and aerospace, electronics, consumer products and home appliances, and others. Automotive is expected to be the leading end-use industry segment due to the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient automobiles to meet the stringent regulations for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. The construction segmented is expected to account for the second-largest market share due to rapid industrialization across the globe.
