Plasticizers are additives applied in polymers & other materials to enhance their softness, flexibility, and processability. They are applicable in flooring & wall coverings, films & sheets, wires & cables, coated fabrics, consumer goods, and several others. The global plasticizers market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. Raw materials for plasticizers generally comprise esterification of different types of alcohols & acids as well as other chemicals as per the required application.

Emerging applications of plasticizers in various end-user industries and high demand for non-phthalate plasticizers in different regions are major factors that are expected to drive the market growth. However, strict government regulations over some of the phthalates and toxicity of PVC polymer may hamper this growth. Increase in demand for bio-based plasticizers for products, such as personal care cosmetics, toys, food contact materials, health care commodities, and others, are expected to create growth opportunities for various players in the market.
