Plastic Additives Market

Plastic Additives Market - Global Industry Insights,
Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis,
Plastic additives are chemicals that are used to polymerize, process or help achieve
desired properties in the end use of plastics. Plastic additives offer various
characteristics such as improved resistance to chemicals, water, and scratches,
reduced coefficient of friction, enhanced gloss, improved water repellency,
suppression of shark-skin, and lowered surface roughness.

Plastic additives are also used to improve the ease of processing of plastics, by
increasing its flowability. Internal lubricants help improve the melt flow of materials by
lowering the heat dissipation and viscosity. Plastic additives in comparison to other
additives, better prevent the risk of microbiological deterioration of plastic materials
that are prone to staining, odor, discoloration, and aesthetic loss. These beneficial
properties of plastic additives over other additives are responsible for boosting
growth of the plastic additives market. Plastic additives are most importantly effective
on materials with electrical insulating properties and mechanical properties.
Plastic additives are widely used in the automobile and construction industries,
owing to properties such as improved strength of impact, improved coupling, higher
elongation, reduced brittleness, and higher plasticity. In the automotive industry,
these additives have gained increased acceptance in applications such as interior
scratch resistance in trims or panels for interior scratch resistance, and in high
glossy panels for the decoration of middle consoles. Growing popularity of
cost-effective automotive interiors, in turn, is expected to fuel growth of the plastic
additives market. The consumer goods industry employs these additives due to the
easy process involved in its recycling. In the construction industry plastic additives
are used to maintain appearance and properties, thermal protection, long-term
durability, and for maintenance of integrity of polymer properties during processing.
Plastic additives also extend the lifetime of UV sensitive construction applications.
Growing construction industry around the globe, is in turn, expected to boost growth
of the market for plastic additives.
Plastic Additives Market Outlook – Increasing Demand for Recyclable Materials
to be the Major Market Driver
Asia Pacific and North America are expected to be the most potential markets for
plastic additives manufacturers. Asia Pacific is projected to witness relatively high
growth in terms of value over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the
growth in various end-use industries such as automotive and construction, especially
in emerging economies such as China and India. According to IBEF, US$ 300 billion
is projected to be generated by the Indian automotive industry by 2026. India Brand
Equity Foundation (IBEF) is a Trust established by the Ministry of Commerce and
Industry, Department of Commerce in collaboration with the Government of India,
with the aim to promote and create international awareness of goods manufactured
in India. On the other hand, Europe also provides lucrative opportunities for plastic
additive manufacturers due to increasing use of plastic material in automobile,
consumer goods, and construction industries.
Reusable property of plastic is fueling the demand for plastic additives, especially in
the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. However, stringent rules and regulations
on the use of plastic products is expected to be a major restraining factors for growth
of the plastic additives market over the forecast period. The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has implied safety concerns with the use of recycled plastic
materials in food-contact for contaminants occurring from the post-consumer
material in the final food-contact product made from the recycled material.
Developing plastic additives adhering to environmental concerns is a key strategy
adopted by the major players. Some of the major companies operating in the global
plastic additives market are BASF SE, Songwon Industrial Co. Ltd., Clariant AG,
Albemarle Corporation, and The Dow Chemical Company.
