DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Antiblock Additive Market by Product Type (Organic, Inorganic), Polymer Type (LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, BOPP, PVC), Application (Food, Pharmaceutical, Industrial, Medical, Agriculture) - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
The antiblock additive market is projected to reach USD 1,109.6 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. Increasing population across the globe has led to a rising demand for agricultural output and packaged food products.
The demand for antiblock additive from Asia-Pacific is fueled by the rising standard of living and increasing per capita spending power of consumers. However, factor restraining the growth of the antiblock additive market is high loading of inorganic antiblock additive, which affects mechanical and optical properties of the plastic film layer.
The market for organic antiblock additive is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021, in terms of value. This can be attributed to increasing consumer awareness for switching to more efficient synthetically prepared organic products offering enhanced flexibility at low concentration levels. In addition, consumer inclination towards adopting technological changes is driving the market for organic product type.
LLDPE polymer type segment constitutes a major share of the global antiblock additive market. LLDPE polymers are used in large quantities due to their high demand in various packaging and non-packaging applications such as food, pharmaceutical, medical, agriculture, and coatings, among others. The demand for LLDPE polymer type is mainly from Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa regions due to its low cost and easy availability.
Antiblock additives make plastic film layers less sticky by creating a micro-rough surface on the top of a film layer. Thus, they form an integral component of any packaging application. Food packaging constitutes a major share of the global antiblock additive market due to high demand for packaged and ready-to-eat food products. Increasing population and employment opportunities coupled with rise in disposable income of consumers has led to an increase in the demand for packaged food.
Asia-Pacific to be the fastest-growing market for antiblock additive during the forecast period.
