The outbreak led to lockdown of countries and halt for activities which deemed as non-essential activities. Additionally, the pandemic had a substantial impact on the global manufacturing industry and hence negatively affecting the production of plastic enclosures during the lockdown. However, the termination of lockdown helped in the beginning of streamlining of production process for plastic enclosures.

As per Growth Market Reports' industry analyst Akshay Udavant, “The Global Plastic Enclosures Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027 driven by investments for robotics & automation in several industries. Moreover, companies are now focusing towards establishing industrial IoT devices within the organization in order to boost productivity while decreasing additional costs. This has surged the requirement for electrical component protection and hence increasing the demand for plastic enclosures.”

Key Takeaways from the Study

  • The polycarbonate segment is anticipated to expand at a substantial CAGR % during the forecast period due to high resistance to temperature and corrosion provided by the material to the enclosures.
  • In terms of value, the power generation & distribution segment is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The substantial rise in global consumption of electricity has forced the companies in the power generation & distribution sector to maintain a continuous flow of electricity which is expected to influence the demand for plastic enclosures for the protection of key electrical components of the companies.
  • Asia pacific accounts for a major share of the market, followed by Middle East and Africa. The market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to major infrastructural developments in the region.
