An Increase in Global Construction Activities Is Expected to Increase the Demand for Decorative Plastics and Paper Laminates Market.
The Decorative Plastics and Paper Laminates Market size is forecast to reach US$70.3 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The decorative plastics and paper laminates are manufactured by impregnating plastics and paper with carbon fiber and phenolic resin, after which these treated papers are pressed under calculated pressure and controlled temperature. They are used for a wide range of applications that include column claddings, furniture and cabinets, flooring, wall paneling, doors, and other similar applications in the construction of residential and commercial buildings. According to recent insights from the World Cement, the global construction industry output increased by 5.7% in 2021. An increase in building & construction activities along with increasing consumer preference towards laminate flooring acts as major drivers for the market. On the other hand, the availability of cheaper alternatives such as inkjet printers may confine the market growth
There is no doubt that the COVID-19 lockdown has significantly reduced construction, and production activities as a result of the country-wise shutdown of construction sites, shortage of labor, and the decline of supply and demand chain all over the world, thus, affecting the market. Studies show that the outbreak of COVID-19 sharply declined the production of raw materials in 2020 due to a lack of operations across multiple countries around the world. However, a slow recovery in new development and construction contracts has been witnessed across many countries around the world since 2021. For instance, according to the General Statistics Office (GSO) of Vietnam, the building & construction industry recorded a growth of 5.7% during the third quarter of 2020, and up to 5.5% during the fourth quarter of 2020. Furthermore, in order to encourage the private investors, the government also offered incentives to developers for the construction of affordable houses and has set aside US$1.3 billion for the construction of affordable houses in the country during the period of 2018 to 2022.
In this way, a steady increase in building and construction activities is expected to increase the demand for decorative plastics and paper laminates for use in column claddings, furniture and cabinets, flooring, wall paneling, doors, and other similar applications in residential or commercial buildings. This indicates a slow and steady recovery of the market in the upcoming years.

Decorative Plastics and Paper Laminates Market Challenges
Availability of cheaper alternatives such as inkjet printers may confine the market growthThe use of inkjet printers as an alternative to decorative laminates for producing a decorative surface is increasing rapidly. The major reason behind this is the higher risk of cracking related to decorative laminates. Changes in weather and moisture conditions cause decorative laminates to expand and contract, thus, resulting in cracks in the laminate. Decorative surface printed using inkjet printer produces similar results to decorative laminates and come in a wide range of designs and patterns. For example, large format prints using an inkjet printer can be easily printed on wall stickers, and then installed on walls. It does not require the use of special adhesives like resins as opposed to decorative laminates, which makes it cheaper than decorative laminates. Thus, such increasing availability of cheaper alternatives may confine the growth of the market.
