Global Anti-block Additives Market 2017-2021

Global Anti-block Additives Market 2017-2021

About Anti-block Additives

Anti-block additives are used to prevent polyolefin film sheets from sticking together. These films, when being in close contact, stick to each other due to electrostatic charges. This stickiness depends on the temperature, pressure, and processing time of the plastic films. Anti-block agents are added to polyolefins and other polymers in low concentrations to prevent the adherence of layers.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global anti-block additives market to grow at a CAGR of 5.90% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Anti-block Additives Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global anti-block additives market: A.Schulman, Honeywell International, Imerys, Minerals Technologies, and W. R. Grace & Co.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ampacet, Bayshore Industrial, BYK Additives & Instruments, Croda International, Elementis, Evonik, Hoffmann Mineral, J.M. Huber, Polytechs, Momentive, Omya, Quarzwerke Group, Shamrock Technologies, Sukano, and Unimin.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Government initiative for biodegradables. Anti-blocking additives are used in all types of plastic films to prevent stickiness in between polymer films. These additives have been used in various polymers like LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, BOPP, and PVC. These additives provide anti-blocking properties and enable the easy processing of packaging. The anti-block agents create space between two plastic layers, thereby creating a block. However, the use of plastic films is restricted, under government regulations, due to environmental problems. The government has taken initiatives toward the development of eco-friendly and biodegradable polymers.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Demand from the agricultural sector. The use of plastic films in agriculture is growing extensively. The demand for greenhouse films is increasing because of their UV and thermal resistance properties. These films help in the faster formation of yields, and consume less water, resulting in the large production of crops. Moreover, the demand for plastic films is extensively increasing in walk-in tunnel and low tunnel covers, and mulching. Mulch is applied to the surface of the soil to improve the fertility and for the conversion of soil moisture.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High loading of anti-block additives. The challenge that most of the manufacturers are facing is to increase the performance of the product by retaining the mechanical and optical properties of the films, which would be affected by the loading of anti-blocks in high quantities. Research indicates that it is equally important to decide on the additive loading level, in addition to choosing the additive type and application.
