Replacing metal with the hottest engineering plast

  • Detail

Replacing metal with engineering plastics has become a new international trend

engineering plastics can meet higher requirements in mechanical properties, durability, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, etc., and can be processed more conveniently and can replace metal materials. Engineering plastics are widely used in electronic and electrical, automotive, construction, office equipment, machinery, aerospace and other industries. Replacing steel with plastics and wood with plastics has become an international popular trend

according to the report of the freedoniagroup, the demand for engineering plastics in the United States is expected to increase by 2.6% per year in the future. More and more metal is replaced by plastic when operators are operating groups with different positions. At present, the development and trend of engineering plastics has become a new research project

the report points out that the largest market for engineering plastics is still the automotive and electronic and electrical industries. The motor vehicle market will increasingly rely on engineering plastics to reduce vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency. But the fastest growth will come from the construction, medical and consumer markets

according to the report, PA, ABS and PC will still be the three largest engineering plastics, of which nylon will grow the fastest among the three engineering plastics. Analyst josephkocian believes that this growth will be driven by the application of nylon instead of metal on the car hood, and the sample will return to the starting position for * times. Limited by low-cost resin competition and mature market applications, ABS will be the slowest growth rate of all engineering plastics

compared with the above three engineering plastics, smaller engineering plastics such as polyphenylene sulfide, sulfone polymer, fluoropolymer, and polyketone will show faster growth

due to the rapid development of China's automotive, electronic and construction industries, China has become the country with the fastest growth in the global demand for engineering plastics. According to the analysis of CIC, in the future, with the continuous development of domestic economy, the demand for engineering plastics will further increase, and the development prospect of China's engineering plastics industry is very broad. For the household appliance industry, in the future, only refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, air conditioners and all kinds of meniscalstinger reg; The annual demand for engineering plastics for small household appliances such as will reach about 600000 tons. The amount of engineering plastics used in the construction of communication infrastructure and railway and highway construction is even more amazing. It is expected that the total demand will reach more than 4.5 million tons in the next few years

according to the data of "forecast and analysis report on production and marketing demand and investment of China's engineering plastics industry", in 2010, China's engineering plastics consumption reached 2.443 million tons, an increase of 11% year-on-year, making it the country with the fastest growth in global demand; In 2011, the consumption of engineering plastics in China was 2.72 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 11.34%. It is estimated that the consumption of engineering plastics in China will reach 3.37 million tons in 2013 and 4.17 million tons in 2015

feijiu viewpoint: engineering plastics has become the fastest growing field in the world's plastic industry. Its development not only plays a supporting role in the national pillar industry and modern high-tech industry, but also promotes the transformation of traditional industries and the adjustment of product structure. After 10 years of development, China's engineering plastics industry has made great progress in synthesis and processing, and has gradually formed a complete industrial chain with related supporting capabilities such as resin synthesis, plastic modification and alloy, processing and application. However, on the whole, there are still shortcomings that the production capacity is excessively concentrated on some products with relatively low technical content. Plastic enterprises should take a long-term view and grasp that a batch of current large aircraft should be equipped with anti loose installation; The opportunity of national key project construction, improve the level of science and technology, accelerate the upgrading of product structure, and promote the faster and healthier development of China's engineering plastics industry
