Expanding plastic usage in the construction, automotive, and electrical sectors is currently adding to the already rising demand for plastics. Particularly with the directions to control gross vehicle weight for fuel efficiency and reduced carbon emissions, plastic is fast becoming an alternative to metals. Furthermore, stringent compliance procedures regarding exhaustion and recyclability of traditional materials, such as metal and wood, are anticipated to drive greater demand for plastic from the construction and automotive segments.
Subsequently, we are now seeing rapid digitalization in the plastic manufacturing field. And it’s happening due to two primary reasons; first, to increase the quality of the plastic materials and second, to reduce the chances of plastic pollution and make it an ecologically viable option. From 3D printing to injection molding, a plethora of new approaches are bolstering the plastic manufaturing processes in this regard. Another fascinating development comes from the exciting world of bioplastics. Scientists at the Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania have created a biodegradable plastic that can decompose within a compost bin in two years. Once it is made public, applications of this material include use as safer single-use packaging for goods, replacements for plastic shopping bags and storage bags, and more.
