Polycarbonates (PC) are a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. Polycarbonates used in engineering are strong, tough materials, and some grades are optically transparent. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonates do not have a unique resin identification code (RIC) and are identified as "Other", 7 on the RIC list.
The main production areas are in Asia, Europe and North America while the main consumption areas also in those areas. Asia is the largest consumption and production areas.
We tend to believe that this industry still has a bright future, considering the current demand of downstream. Polycarbonates will be the mainstream Polycarbonates products. In the subsequent few years, Polycarbonate's market share will grow. In developing countries, Polycarbonates is still going to be a mainstream product. In developed countries, many companies are turning to the production of Polycarbonates and Polycarbonates.
