Cast polymer is a product of the process of enhancing the physical properties of materials by employing techniques of strengthening. In addition, cast polymers undergo a molding process to improve their strengthening capabilities. They are artificially manufactured and consist of bonded polymers in their chemical structure. When compared with conventional polymers, they have enhanced physical properties such as brittleness and stain resistance. Cast polymers are molded and hardened to a solid material in a variety of shapes that meet diverse design needs. The International Cast Polymer Alliance divides cast polymers into three general categories based on the materials and methods used to manufacture them-solid surface, engineered composites, and engineered stone.

Increase in the application areas of cast polymers among residential and non-residential areas is the primary factor that fuels the growth of the market. Moreover, the recovery of residential and commercial construction markets in North America and Europe, along with the fastest growing consumption in China and India are the major drivers of this growth. With the formation of global supply chains and international competition, ample market opportunities have been formed for industry players with established global strategies. An extensive usage of cast polymers in the residential sector is mainly confined to bathroom appliances and other household utilities.
The commercial/nonresidential sector dominated the use of cast polymers in the construction of schools, hospitals, transportation terminals, and other public utilities. Increased utilization of cast polymers in remodeling and construction activities due to their availability in various colors, shapes, textures, and types at minimum prices has also contributed to the growth of the global cast polymers market. Also, the robust growth of the construction industry also drives the market. However, owing to the presence of limited players in this market, the demand from end-user industries exceeds supply, which acts as a major factor that limits the market growth. However, the availability of inexpensive labor and low procurement costs in developing countries act as a great opportunity for the growth of the market.
