NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Analysis of the Engineering Polymers Market in Colombia http://www.reportlinker.com/p01083096/Analysis-of-the-Engineering-Polymers-Market-in-Colombia.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Plastic This research service offers an in-depth analysis of the engineering polymers market in Colombia. The study includes information about major market participants; an analysis of the competitive market dynamics; figures for revenue, market share, and unit/volume shipments; drivers and restraints; and a detailed forecast. The study is segmented by resin type, and each segment includes a forecast for revenue and unit shipment along with a discussion of the economic scenario. The study concludes with strategic recommendations and predictions. The base year is 2011, and the forecast period is 2012 to 2018. Executive Summary •The Colombian engineering polymers market has recovered quickly from the 2008-2009 economic crisis and stabilized in 2011, with sales worth $ x x million and a volume of x x metric tons (MT). •A trend of replacing traditional materials in industrial manufacturing, such as wood and metals, is being reinforced in Colombia and favors engineering polymers, due to globale ecological trends. •Colombia typically imports all engineering plastics and resins, so it is heavily affected by changes in international prices, which can lead to reduced competitiveness of the manufacturers and companies that their raw material are plastics. •Sales volume is expected to grow at a x xpercent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2011 to 2018, reaching x x MT by 2018. •Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and Polyamide (PA) are the largest segments, with x x percent and x x percent of the market volume, respectively, because of their wide range of applications. Polycarbonate (PC) is next, with x xpercent of market volume, followed by polyoxymethylene (POM) with x xpercent and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) with x x percent.
