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. Acrylics and TPE are expected to grow in the near future due to increasing demand from the construction industry with flexible design.Other types of plastics finds applications in roofing, cladding and insulation.

Building & construction plastics are used in the infrastructure industry in major applications such as pipes & ducts, insulation, door fittings and others. The other significant applications of building & construction plastics include cladding, floor and wall insulation,water proofing, concrete reinforcement and windows & door profiles. In addition, there is a huge demand of plastics from building & construction industry. The demand has increased due to various applications in flexible architectural designs and renovation of old buildings.

The global building and construction market is growing owing to the continuously increasing population and changing lifestyles, especially in emerging economies such as India, China and Brazil.Growth in the building& construction sector coupled with urbanization in BRIC countries has been driving the global building and construction plastics market in the past few years.However, the price impact of upstream raw materials such as crude oil and feed stock is anticipated to hamper the growth of the building & construction plastics market.Increasing application scope of building& construction plastics in the green building market coupled with rising demand for bio-based plastics are expected to open opportunities for the growth of the market over the coming years.
