Additives are minor components that modify the properties of the polymer giving it strength, durability and heat sensitivity. Additives are selected based on the types of polymers or the polymer additive applications. This leads to develop value-added product with improved durability as well as other advantages. Plastics are the major submarket of polymer additives. Polymer additives are important as packaging materials. The ability to modify polymers by using additives has allowed the packaging industry to produce better and stronger materials such as films, molded containers, and cushioning.
There are different types of polymer additives such as plasticizers, stabilizers, processing aids, antibacterial additives, anti-static, blowing agents, fillers, coupling agents, desiccants, color changing additives and many others. These types of additives have specific characteristics that meet the demands from the integrated industries. Polymer additives applications market comprise of automotive, caps and closures, film production, foamed polymers, injection molding, wood plastic composites, liquid colour, rubber, polyolefins, PVC, styrenics, polyamides, biopolymers, printing inks and thermal paper.
Anti-scratch, anti-fog, anti-static, mold release, plasticization, slip, torque release, UV protection, and WPC lubrication are some important technologies in the polymer additives market. Inexpensive plastic equipments and similar properties to that of metals equipment are driving the polymer additives market to grow in the next few years.
Geographically, this market is bifurcated by regions as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and MEA. Key players in polymer additives industry are BASF, Chemtura Corporation, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Bayer AG, Clariant Ltd., Kaneka Corporation, Lanxess AG, Zeon Chemicals, Axel Plastics Research Laboratories, Inc., and DOW Plastic Additives.
