Global Plasticizers Market 2017-2021

About Plasticizers

Plasticizers are plastic additives that are used to soften and add flexibility to a material. They are chiefly used in the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products. Plasticizers are of different types such as phthalates, non-phthalates, polymeric, and aliphatic. Phthalates are the most widely used plasticizers, especially in manufacturing PVC products. The chief application of plasticizers includes floor and wall coverings, wires and cables, films and sheets, and coated fabric. These products are ultimately used in various end-user industries such as housing and construction, automotive, and electrical and electronic.
