Polymer Processing Aid Market: Highlights
Plastic additives, such as plasticizers, flame retardants, impact modifiers, processing aids, stabilizers, antioxidants, and antimicrobials, have been used for decades to enhance the properties of plastics and plastic products. Plastic additives' demand usually moves parallelly with the plastics' demand, the latter is dependent on the growth trajectory of major end-use industries.
Polymer Processing Aid (PPA) is mainly used in improving melt processability or improving the handling of polymers with high-molecular weight. They are used in the production and processing of different polymers. PPA can be beneficial in a number of ways such as reducing die build-up, offering thermal stability, lowering melt viscosity, reducing gel formation, reducing interfacial instability, and usage in high viscosity.
The demand for plastics has incessantly been increasing for a wide range of applications by replacing metals in some cases. In industries, such as automotive, the ineluctable need to attain fuel efficiency drives the usage of lightweight materials such as composites and plastics. In the consumer goods and packaging industries, polymers remain the materials of choice.
Steady demand from the relatively unstirred packaging and consumer goods industries proved to be the boat that sailed PPA demand through the pandemic's waves. A sudden spike in demand for PP and PE masks, medical gowns, and other medical supplies proved to be another factor adding momentum to the market in 2020. The long-term outlook seems fruitful with propitious demand from across industries, pushing the PPA market to an estimated value of US$ 2.3 billion by 2026.
Based on the polymer type, we have segmented the market as polyethylene, polypropylene, and others. The polyethylene segment is further sub-segmented into HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE. Polyethylene is estimated to dominate the market in the coming five years, in terms of both value and volume. The growth is attributed to the rising employment of HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE in the consumer goods, building & construction, and automotive industries. The polypropylene segment is projected to depict the highest growth during the forecast period, on account of the escalating demand from the packaging and healthcare industries.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented as blown film & cast film, extrusion & molding, pipes & tubes, fibers & raffia, wires & cables, and others. The blown film & cast film segment is estimated to continue holding the throne during the forecast period. The growth is triggered by the rising use of polymer processing aid to manufacturing blown films & cast films to substantiate the mounting demand for quality films especially in China, Japan, India, and South Korea.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market for polymer processing aid in the coming five years, driven by the escalating per capita use of plastics. China and India are likely to remain the thrust-bearers of the region. China has been quite resilient in exerting efforts to acquire PP self-sufficiency and to reduce dependency on PE imports, in an attempt to establish and integrate, indigenous polymer production value chain. North America and Europe are also expected to offer sizeable growth opportunities during the forecast period.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material manufacturers, PPA manufacturers, masterbatch makers, compounders, component manufacturers, and OEMs. The key players in the PPA market include Arkema S.A., Avient Corporation, Daikin Industries, Ltd., Fine Organic Industries Ltd., LyondellBasell Industries N.V., Solvay S.A., The Chemours Company, The 3M Company, Tosaf Group, and Wells Plastics Ltd. Mergers & acquisitions, application development, and development of innovative products are some of the key strategies adopted by the major players in order to gain a competitive edge in the market.
