BASF SE (Germany) is the other major player in the construction plastics market. The company adopted organic growth strategies to establish its foothold, globally. For example, in June 2018, BASF SE expanded its presence to Germany, Korea, and others. With this expansion, BASF SE was able to increase its global production capacity of insulation materials, which in turn, resulted in increased demand for gray insulation materials, globally. In October 2017, BASF SE launched a new product, Ultradur, which is composed of PVC and is expected to be used to replace steel in the windows application in the building & construction industry.
