Plastic additive Market – Market Overview

Plastic Additive is added to polymer during chemical processing in order to enhance strength, gloss, durability and heat sensitivity. Depletion of mineral resources has led to increased cost of metal equipment's which indirectly replaced metal parts with plastic components. Thus, cost effective and superior properties of plastic over metals are anticipated to drive the Plastic Additives Market. Plastic Additive such as antimicrobials, antioxidants, UV stabilizers, plasticizers are largely used in compound formulation to improve chemicals and physical properties.

The factors impacting the Global Plastic Additive Market are excessive usage of plastic components over metal ore, superior properties of plastic additives and increasing application scope. The Global Plastic Additive Industry is dominated by plasticizers as it helps the plastic to increase rigidity and acts as modifier. Further, flame retardant is leading with considerable CAGR owing to increased application in automotive, and consumer appliances. Growing environment concern over degradation of forest resources has also replaces wood products with plastic. Thus, increasing consumption of plastic product has led to increased demand of Plastic Additives over the forecast period.
