Plastic additives are substances that are added in plastic to modify some of its properties. Some of the most common ones are plasticizers which are used to lower the glass transition temperature of the polymers. Plastics additives are all chemicals which are used to polymerize, process or to modify end-use properties of plastics. The plastic additives contribute to maintaining the functionality of the plastics or conferring new features. Plastic additives enable safe handling of the plastic during the manufacture of finished products. There are different types of plastic additives such as antimicrobials, antioxidants, impact modifiers, plasticizers and UV stabilizers used to enhance the properties of the plastic products.


The plastic additives market has witnessed a significant growth owing to factors such as increasing usability of plastic additives in a variety of end-user industries which includes automotive, packaging and consumer goods. Moreover, increasing disposable income coupled with rapid urbanization in the Asia-Pacific region is further anticipated to boost the demand for plastic additives over the forecast period. Rising demand from the agriculture and pharmaceutical sector provides a growth opportunity for the key players. However, stringent government regulation and the ban on the use of plastic in some regions concerning recycling of non-degradable plastics waste may act as restraining factors for the plastic additives market. The significant shift of the consumers toward bio-based materials for environmental protection is one of the major trends to be followed by the market over the forecast period.
