About Market - Acrylic History (market prospects)
Prospects of plexiglass market development: Plexiglass is an important early-developed thermoplastics product, with transparency, stability and weather resistance. It is easy to stain, easy to process, beautiful in appearance, and has a wide range of applications in the construction industry.
In the construction industry it is mainly used in lighting, roofs, stairs, interior walls and more. In recent years, plexiglass is used in lighting roadside lamps on streets and highways, and also in advanced automotive lighting. With the construction of restaurants, hotels and high-end residential projects in growing cities, the market for this type of light has developed rapidly. Compared with inorganic glass lighting devices, the extrusion plates made of organic glass, such as in common house lighting, is high strength, light weight, has high light transmittance and good safety performance.
In terms of houseware, organic glass can make bathtubs, lavatory accessories, dressers and so on. It has a wide range of applications. For example, an organic glass bathtub has a luxurious appearance, deep feeling, is easy to clean, has high strength, and is comfortable.
At present, the United States and Japan have mandatory provisions in their laws requiring the use of plexiglass in primary and secondary construction. It is expected that China could follow suit in the near future and make corresponding provisions. At the same time, China is trying to speed up the pace of urban construction, which means more demand for products made of plexiglass such as street signs, advertising light boxes and telephone booths. Thus, the market prospect of plexiglass development is very broad and promising.
