The day-to-day activities of an individual involve the use of plastic goods. A large number of plastics have been developed and used as a material for the households, commercial and industrial purpose. All the plastic products are made from polymer mixed with a combination of materials, known as additives. Plastic additives are added in polymer to improve the performance, process-ability and other characteristics such as shine, strength, durability, heat resistance, etc.
Plastic additives provide various benefits to the plastics. Plastic additives are used to improve processing conditions of plastics, obtain better impact resistance, increase flame resistance, change the appearance of a plastic, increase or decrease hardness, control surface tension, increase the strength of a plastic, facilitate extrusion blocking, reduce costs, and make plastic more eco-friendly.
The plastic additives market can be segmented on the basis of product types (Plasticizers, Flame Retardants, Impact Modifiers, Antioxidants, Antimicrobials, UV Stabilizers and Others); Plastic (Engineering Plastic, High-Performance Plastic and Commodity Plastic); Function (Modifiers, Extenders, Stabilizers and Processing Aids) and Application (Packaging, Construction, Consumer Goods, Automotive and Other Applications).
The global plastic additives market has increased at a significant CAGR during the years 2015-2018 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next four years i.e. 2019-2023 tremendously. The plastic additives market is expected to increase due to the growing consumption of plastic, increasing construction activities, escalating use of plastic in packaging industry, rising industrial activities, etc. Yet the market faces some challenges such as growing concern towards hazardousness of plastics, stringent government regulations, etc.
