PVC contributes to the quality, cost-effectiveness, and safety of construction material and is the most widely used polymer used in the building & construction applications. The construction industry is a highly growing segment with remarkable growth trends across the globe. Additionally, PVC is extensively used in the automobile industry. Thus, the growing demand for PVC is expected to drive the demand for plasticizer across the globe over the years. Moreover, increasing demand for environment-friendly high phthalates and no phthalates are expected to fuel the demand for plasticizers within the forecast period. However, adverse effects of DOP plasticizers on human health may hamper the market growth in the near future. The stringent regulations and norms along with a tight supply of harmful phthalates, such as DOP, DBP, BBP, and DEP have led to the development of eco-friendly plasticizer as a replacement to the traditional phthalates and in turn, is expected to open growth avenues for the market within the forecast period.
