Polymer Engineering uses the theory and knowledge of Chemical Engineering/Technology to solve various problems involving the production and use of polymers. Polymer engineers use the principles of plant design, process design, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena to develop new products. Polymer engineers also supervise the production process of plastic and other polymers. Under their supervision, plastic molders and technicians carry out the shop floor manufacturing processes. In recent times, polymer has become the most rapidly growing sector of the materials industry. As polymer production has grown, so has the number of people who work in this field. It has been estimated that about 50 percent of the chemical engineers and chemists in the United States work in the polymer industry. Furthermore, in India the demand of polymer engineers is increasing with opening of more and more new polymer industries.
