Dublin, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Plasticizers Market by type (phthalate and Non-phthalate), Application (Floorings & Wall Coverings, Films & Sheets, Coated Fabrics, Wires & Cables, Consumer Goods) and Region (North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa) - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The Plasticizers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period, from an estimated USD 17.0 billion in 2022 to USD 22.5 billion in 2027.

Increased construction activity can drive demand for plastic building products, such as pipes, window frames, and flooring, thereby increasing demand for Plasticizers.

Phthalate plasticizer is expected to emerge as the fastest segment based on power rating

Phthalate Plasticizers are mainly used for PVC applications as they conform well with PVC, maintaining the necessary softness at a minimal quantity and enabling plasticizing efficiency. They are the chief components that determine the physical properties of polymer products and enable low volatility and migration. Various types are used based on the end-use requirement, the most widely used being DOP and DINP/DIDP/DPHP phthalate plasticizer.

Floorings & wall coverings: The largest segment for the Plasticizers market, by product type

Floorings & wall coverings is one of the main plasticizer applications. The flooring application must withstand heavy foot traffic (retail stores) and repeated cleaning (healthcare facilities). Wall coverings come in a wide range of finishes and colors, along with easy maintenance and durability. Plasticizers are typically used in floorings & wall coverings applications as they offer good stain resistance and a greater filler tolerance.

Europe is expected to be the second-largest market during the forecast period.

The Plasticizers market in Europe is driven by the electronics industry due to increased investment in research and innovations, thereby creating demand for Plasticizers and PVCs that are widely used for building wires and cables.
