LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent global plastic additives market report. This research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
Plastic additives are employed to improve the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties and the performance of the plastic material that they are added to. They serve various functions required in the plastic industry. Plasticizers are predominantly used in all types of polymer compositions and are the crucial and key ingredient in molds or masterbatches.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global plastic additives market is fragmented with many vendors present across the globe creating an intensely competitive landscape. The top vendors held a majority of the market share in 2016. These key vendors are concentrating on technological advances and offer innovative and high-quality products in order to consolidate their market shares.
“The prominent vendors operating in the market offer a comprehensive portfolio of plastic additives having a wide range of specialized and standard applications to gain a competitive edge over others. Thus, these strategies are likely to intensify competition among key players in the coming years,” says Mohd Shakeel Iqbal, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers research analyst from Technavio.
The majority of the key vendors have backward integration. ExxonMobil, BASF, and Evonik industries have backward integration and are prominently present in APAC. They are also actively present in the Americas and EMEA.
