DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Plasticizers Market by Type and Application - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022" report to their offering.
The plasticizers market was valued at $15,179 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $18,538 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 2.9% from 2016 to 2022, according to a new report. The phthalates type held two-thirds of the global market in 2015.
Plasticizers are additives applied in polymers & other materials to enhance their softness, flexibility, and processability. They are applicable in flooring & wall coverings, films & sheets, wires & cables, coated fabrics, consumer goods, and several others. The global plasticizers market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. Raw materials for plasticizers generally comprise esterification of different types of alcohols & acids as well as other chemicals as per the required application.
Emerging applications of plasticizers in various end-user industries and high demand for non-phthalate plasticizers in different regions are major factors that are expected to drive the market growth. However, strict government regulations over some of the phthalates and toxicity of PVC polymer may hamper this growth. Increase in demand for bio-based plasticizers for products, such as personal care cosmetics, toys, food contact materials, health care commodities, and others, are expected to create growth opportunities for various players in the market.
