DUBLIN--()--The "Plasticizers Market Research Report: By Product, End Use, Geographical Outlook - Global Industry Trends, Size, Share Analysis and Growth Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

From $13,967.9 million in 2018, the plasticizers market is projected to grow to $16,700.6 million in 2024, witnessing a 3.5% CAGR during 2019-2024 (forecast period).

Market Insights

The phthalate category held the largest revenue share, of over 65.0%, in 2018, based on product, as end-use sectors, including home appliances, coatings, and flexible machine tools, witness high consumption of such products. They are used to manufacture coatings, healthcare plastics, emulsifying agents, and anti-viscosity agents. Non-phthalate variants would observe faster growth, during the forecast period, as the requirement for environment-friendly products is rising in Europe and North America.

The expanding construction sector is one of the most important drivers for the plasticizers market. With the growth in this sector, the demand for construction material, such as wall and roof insulation, tubes, pipes, and building interiors, is also increasing. In the last five years, the domain has witnessed stable growth, after recovering from the economic slowdown.

These factors, combined with the rapid urbanization and population boom, are leading to an increasing demand for plasticizers, which go into the production of construction material, such as roofing, cladding, and flooring.

The wires & cables category dominated the plasticizers market, in 2018, based on end use. During the forecast period, it is projected to witness considerable growth, due to the increasing usage of cables and wires, which have flexible polyvinylchloride (PVC) for insulation and protection, in end-use industries such as healthcare, construction, and packaging.

Across the world, the market was led by Asia-Pacific (APAC), which held a 60.0% share in 2018. This was a result of the high productivity of end-use domains including chemicals, automotive, construction, and electrical & electronics.
