Plastics have been utilized for a wide variety of applications such as packaging, manufacture of containers and automobiles parts due to their inherent properties. Plastic products have brought benefits to several businesses and aided the acceleration of economic growth as well as the creation of jobs. The demand for plastic products is consistently increasing every year.
Although plastic production has influenced the livelihood of millions globally, the growing awareness of environmental hazards has prompted product manufacturers relying on plastics to consider alternatives. The repercussion of plastic utilization on the environment has been the driving force behind the unprecedented development of various new non-oil alternatives for raw polymer building. Designers and engineers continue to invent plastic composite applications such as fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP), which includes glass, carbon, aramid, and other fibers. In addition, several governments across the globe prohibiting the use of single-use plastic has further increased the demand for eco-friendly options such as biodegradable plastic, used widely in packaging and agriculture is anticipated to supplement the growth of the sectors.
As of 2019, utilization of plastic and automation has been a trend in 3D printing. Automation, in particular, has led to higher productivity, multi-tasking, improved safety standards and reduced costs in the plastic industry. Thus, organizations worldwide utilizing plastic on a large scale, are seeking the assistance of consulting firms to harness the benefits of existing plastic adoption trends.
