Introduction

Additives are added in plastics to improve its impact strength, chemical and heat resistance, clarity, weather resistance and color preservation properties. Plastic additives are used to add volume in order to control costs, modify the physical or chemical properties of the polymer, or reinforcing the polymer’s mechanical properties to make it stronger and better for end-use applications. Plastics Additives are used in a variety of applications ranging from construction, packaging containers to consumer & electronics appliances, business machines and automotive parts.

The market for plastic additives is estimated to grow on account of increasing disposable income especially in Asia-Pacific region and growing plastic consumption. The flourishing packaging application in emerging economies and increasing use of additives for agricultural and medical applications are expected to act as budding opportunities for this market.

Region-wise, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the leading plastic additives market. Growth in Asia-Pacific is led by the rising demand for plastics due to increasing population and improving standard of living of the people in the region. North America is estimated to be the second largest market for plastic additives and is projected to have a steady growth rate between 2014 and 2019. Packaging application is projected to have the biggest market of plastic additives as a result of rapid urbanization and increasing demand for packaging materials from consumer goods and food packaging industries. Commodity plastics segment is anticipated to have the largest market size in 2013 and will continue to dominate till 2019 on account of its economic commercial availability and wide-spread applications in several end-use industries.
