Plastic Antioxidants Market by Polymer Resin (Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polystyrene, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), Antioxidants Type (Phenolic, Phosphite & Phosphonite, Antioxidant Blends) - Global Forecast to 2022
“Replacement of conventional materials by plastics in various industries is expected to drive the plastic antioxidants market.”
The plastic antioxidants market is estimated to be USD 1.69 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 2.11 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2017 to 2022. The plastic antioxidants market is largely driven by the rising use of plastics in the packaging, building & construction, and automotive sectors, among others. Plastics possess superior mechanical and electrical properties, enhanced abrasion resistance, and superior chemical resistance, as compared to conventional materials, such as metals, glass, paper, and ceramic. The rising use of plastics is expected to drive the plastic antioxidants market. However, health effects associated with the usage of synthetic plastic antioxidants are the major restraints for the growth of the market.
“The phosphite & phosphonite segment is expected to be the fastest-growing antioxidant type segment of the plastic segment, in terms of value, from 2017 to 2022.”
The phosphite & phosphonite segment is expected to witness the highest growth, in terms of volume, from 2017 to 2022. The ability of phosphite and phosphonite antioxidants to provide better color stabilization and its melt viscosity to plastics are the key factors expected to drive the growth of the segment in the coming years.
“Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is expected to be the fastest-growing polymer resin, in terms of value, from 2017 and 2022.”
The ABS resin segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing polymer resin segment from 2017 and 2022, in terms of value. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing demand and manufacturing of ABS in Asia-Pacific, especially in China. China accounts for more than one-third of the global capacity of ABS and more than half of its global consumption. This is majorly due to the growing demand for electrical & electronic devices and consumer appliances in China. The strong and durable nature of ABS drives its demand in various industries, such as home appliances, electrical & electronics, and automobiles.
“Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, in terms of value.”
The growing demand for plastics from the building & construction, agriculture, packaging, and automotive industries is expected to fuel the growth of the plastic antioxidants market in the region. In addition, the rising population and increasing disposable income in countries such as China and India are fueling the growth of the building & construction, packaging, and automotive industries in Asia-Pacific, thereby driving the plastic antioxidants market.
