PC is replacing materials that are conventionally used for their optical transmission properties. It has the ability to form end products of various shapes adhering to many conventional and innovative plastic processing techniques. PC is observed to make effective compounded plastics when blended with other engineering plastics. PC is expected to replace glass in many applications as its impact resistance is higher and it weighs only one-sixth for the same volume of glass. It has a very good temperature resistance making it adaptable for high temperature applications. These factors add to the growth of PC resins.

Evolving Bio-based Polycarbonate Resin Market grades are expected to create future  spaces for the plastic.

Electrical & Electronic-major market for PC resin

PC resins are available as general purpose grade, optical grade, and extrusion grade commercially. These individual PC grades have application specific demands differentiated by cost and efficiency. PC is useful in applications such as automotive parts, industrial roofing, consumer & house-ware products, medical equipment, aircraft coating, sports & leisure equipment, various types of bottles, electronic appliances, housing of various consumer electronics, green house construction, CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, and several others. These materials result in minimizing energy consumption and increase in efficiency of the applications.
