Opportunities for Additives in the European and North American Engineering Plastics Industry

Opportunities for Additives in the European and North American Engineering Plastics Industry

The demand for antioxidant blends will increase as a result of the synergistic effects produced by the combination of primary and secondary antioxidants that improve performance and processing stability.

Non-halogenated flame retardants, especially phosphorous-based flame retardants, are finding increased penetration in engineering plastics applications.

The lightweighting trend observed in the automotive, aerospace, and packaging industries are exposing the plastic components to oxidative conditions, driving the demand for antioxidants and light stabilizers.

Environmental regulations and changing customer preferences towards green solutions are the factors driving innovation in the market.

Additive manufacturers are looking for mergers and joint ventures to improve their product capabilities and to boost their market shares.
