Market Analysis and Insights: Europe Molded Plastics Market

Molded plastics market is expected to gain market growth in the forecast period of 2020 to 2027. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the market is growing with the CAGR of 5.2% in the forecast period of 2020 to 2027 and is expected to reach USD 968,755.02 thousand by 2027. Increasing demand of lightweight materials is a driving factor for the market growth.

Growing demand of packaging to support food and FMCG industry and increased use of molded plastics help crop production and improve food quality which drives the market growth. Plastics have the maximum life-span possible and are disposed of properly at the end of their life with minimal damage to the environment as well molded plastic helps in growth crop production and improve food quality which will boost the Europe molded plastics market. Fluctuation in raw material prices will act as the restraint for the Europe molded plastics market.

Micro-plastics are of special interest to different types of plastic litters because of harmful impacts on coastal and agricultural habitats, aquatic organisms, wildlife or potentially human well-being. Its scale is low, promotes the ingestion and bio-accumulation of animals, which induces the physical results of the composite chemical mixture such as decreased nutrition, or toxic effects.
