Global Plastic Additives Market (2021 to 2026) - Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecasts - ResearchAndMarkets.com

·5-min read

The "Plastic Additives Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global plastic additives market reached a value of US$ 46.2 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global plastic additives market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.

A plastic additive is a chemical compound that is added to polymers to improve the chemical and physical properties of plastic products. It acts as a catalyst or filler to improve the strength to weight ratio, luster, durability, corrosion resistance and heat sensitivity of the product. Some of the commonly used plastic additives include property extenders, modifiers, stabilizers and processing aids, which are used for commodity, engineering and high-performance plastics. Owing to these benefits, they also find extensive applications across various industries, including packaging, construction, automotive and manufacturing.

The rapid industrialization across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the replacement of conventional materials used in the production of consumer goods and various textiles, agricultural and medical products is also providing a boost to the market growth. For instance, plastic products with enhanced mechanical and electrical properties are used in place of traditionally used materials, such as glass, paper, ceramic and metal.

Additionally, the rising product demand from the packaging industry is also creating a positive outlook for the market growth. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are among the most commonly used packaging materials across the globe. They are often treated with plastic additives to extend their operational life, appearance and mechanical properties. Other factors, including the growing demand for disposable and reusable plastic products from the medical industry, along with the widespread adoption of 3D printing technologies, are projected to drive the market further.
