Home Appliances

A growing global population combined with a rapidly increasing middle class is driving rapid expansion in the consumer goods and appliances industry. Plastics play an important role in the manufacture of large and small home appliances, which have become ever-present in our daily lives.

Consumer demand for these products has meant that manufacturers are continuously striving to create solutions that are strong, light and durable, while also offering excellent aesthetics, functionality, performance, energy and resource-efficiency. In addition, many manufacturers are looking for sustainable materials that can enable end of life recyclability and offer the highest levels of design and aesthetic freedom.

SABIC offers tailor-made solutions for these requirements, with a broad portfolio of engineering thermoplastics and polymer solutions that supports design for recyclability.                                   

In addition, SABIC’s new TRUCIRCLE™ material solutions encompass the company’s circular materials and technologies including certified circular polymers from the chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste; certified bio-based renewable polymers; new polycarbonate (PC) based on certified renewable feedstock; and mechanical recycled polymers using post-consumer recycled (PCR) content.
