Research and Markets: Global Polycarbonate Market 2014-2018: Bayer MaterialScience AG, Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics & Saudi Basic Industries Dominate

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dsbmhm/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Polycarbonate Market 2014-2018: Bayer MaterialScience AG, Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics & Saudi Basic Industries Dominate" report to their offering.

The Global Polycarbonate market is witnessing the emergence of companies that offer products which are comprised of recycled polycarbonate. For instance, Gallina USA LLC., a US-based manufacturer of plastic glazing products, offers polycarbonate sheets with 10-40 percent recycled polycarbonate content. Styron LLC is another vendor that offers products by blending virgin polycarbonate resin with recycled resin. Such products are being increasingly used in electronic products such as smartphones, tablets, and printers.

According to the report, many drivers are contributing to the growth of the Global Polycarbonate market, the most important of which is the expansion of production capacity by vendors. Several vendors have increased the production capacity of their existing plants to cater to the growing demand from the Middle East and the APAC region.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the existence of stringent laws and regulations regarding the safety aspects of the products. The number of such regulations is particularly high in developed regions such as North America and Europe.
