As industries are in the process of replacing the use of conventional materials such as alloys, glass, and metals, the penetration of engineering plastics is increasing. Also, these engineering plastics are now in the comparative price range of commodity plastics, leading to their increasing adoption. With the increased penetration of engineering plastics in the emerging manufacturing industries of Asia, Middle East & Africa, and South America, the market is expected to register slightly higher growth than North America and Europe, during the long term forecast period. Automotive & transportation, the largest application in the engineering plastics market Automotive & transportation are the biggest end-use applications of engineering plastics. These are extensively used in the automotive & transportation industry for applications such as connectors & housing, under-the-hood components, wheel well, lighting & components such as, headlamp structural housings, headlamps & fog lamps, and reflectors & lighting sockets, among others. The demand for engineering plastics in the automotive & transportation application is growing at a high rate in the Asia-Pacific region. This is due to the growing automobile industry in countries such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea. These countries are also among the largest importers of automobiles globally. The growing market for automobiles in these countries is a strong driving factor for the global engineering plastics industry.

Acrylonitrile provides chemical resistance and heat stability; the styrene base offers ease of processability and rigidity whereas butadiene provides impact strength and toughness. High impact, mechanical potency, and high temperature resistance are some of the properties of ABS which makes it suitable for applications in electrical & electronic parts, automotive and transportation, pipes and fittings, and various consumer products. The demand for ABS is primarily driven by the consumer products and electrical & electronics sectors. In the electronics and electrical sectors, it is used for applications in mobile phones, computers, MP3-players, and so on.
