  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the globe, owing to the high demand for plastics, paints & coatings, rubber, leather, automotive, packaging, and adhesives & sealants from numerous end-user industries in the region.

Key Market Trends

Plastic Additives Segment to Dominate the Market Demand

  • Plastic additives segment dominated the performance additives market. Plastic additives find extensive application in lubricants, plasticizers, stabilizers, flame retardants, anti-fog additives, pigment wetting agents, and others.
  • Plastic additive demand for such applications is expected to increase owing to their growing demand from industries, such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, plastic, packaging, and automotive.
  • Asia-Pacific and North America regions have been witnessing strong growth in the residential construction. Besides, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa are experiencing huge domestic as well as foreign investments for setting up industrial units, hospitals, malls, multiplexes, hospitality industry, and IT sector.
  • In Asia-Pacific, countries, such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia have been witnessing increase in investments and production in the automotive industry. Besides, regions like North America and Europe, are investing heavily on developing lightweight, hybrid, and greener vehicles.
  • Moreover, packaging industry is also growing at a significant rate owing to the growing demand from industries, such as food & beverages, and consumer goods. E-retail has further driven the growth of packaging industry in the recent years, and the trend is likely to continue over the coming years.
  • Hence, all such favorable trends are expected to increase the demand for paints & coatings, lubricants, adhesives & sealants, etc. which is further projected to create demand for additives during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share in 2018. Rising production in industries, such as paints & coatings, plastics, inks, automotive, and electronics, and growing construction activities in the region, have been increasing the consumption of performance additives in the region during the forecast period.
  • With growing investments into the residential and commercial construction in the countries, such as India, China, Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia, the demand for paints, coatings, plastic, adhesives & sealants is expected to increase in the coming years.
  • China has planned numerous airport construction projects, which are currently either in the planning or development phase. Besides, Indian government has planned to construct 100 airports by 2032.
  • Indian government has also planned investment target of USD 120.5 billion for developing 27 industrial clusters is expected to boost commercial construction in the country. Besides, residential construction is also increasing in countries, such as India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Singapore.
  • Automotive production is also increasing in the countries, such as India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Besides, China, the world's largest automotive producer, is majorly focusing on increasing the production and sale of electric vehicles in the country. For this purpose, the country has planned to increase the production of electric vehicles (EVs) to 2 million a year by 2020, and 7 million a year by 2025.
  • In addition, India is witnessing investments in the automotive industry. For instance, in 2018, Hyundai planned investment of USD 1 billion in India by 2020. SAIC Motor has also announced to invest USD 500 million in India by 2020.
  • Online retail shopping is increasing at a higher rate with rising internet technologies and web applications, which has largely supported the growth of the packaging industry in the region. Moreover, the demand for food & beverages, and consumer goods are growing at a high rate due to the increasing income levels, urbanization, and consumers inclining toward technology, hence fueling the demand for packaging industry in the region.
  • Hence, such trends in the end-user industries are likely to drive the demand for performance additives in the region during the forecast period.
