Building & construction plastics are organic polymers of higher molecular mass often containing additives. The plastics are preferred in building & construction as it is light weight and energy efficient. In addition, plastics have several characteristics such as scratch resistance, durability, design freedom and flexibility.The plastics used in the building & construction have lower maintenance and range of waste management options. The building & construction plastics are classified as PVC, PS, acrylics, PU, TPE, composite materials and others (PET, PP, PE, etc.).

PVC is the most used plastic in the building& construction industry.PVC finds applications in pipes & ducts, windows & door profiles and roofing. Composite materials are second largest market for building& construction plastics and are used in concrete reinforcement and bathroom accessories among others.
