Frost & Sullivan: Construction Plastics to Register Moderate to High Growth as Urbanization Increases

SANTA CLARA, California, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis, Affordable Housing Driving the Global Market for Construction Plastics, finds that rising urbanization and development of high-rise buildings, especially in developing countries, are key factors pushing the demand for construction plastics across the globe. The market for construction plastics is estimated to garner a revenue of
98.78 billion by 2026 from
63.72 billion in 2019, up at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5%. However, COVID-19 is likely to adversely impact the global consumption of construction plastics throughout 2020 as various countries have enforced strict lockdown measures to contain the pandemic, which resulted in significant delays in new and existing construction projects worldwide. The situation is expected to improve from 2021, following a reduction in the pandemic's impact, thereby resuming construction activities across the globe.
