Global Plastic Antioxidants Market to 2026 - Drivers, Restraints & Opportunities -

DUBLIN--()--The "Plastic Antioxidants Market by Type and Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global plastic antioxidants market was valued at $3,020.9 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $4,962.2 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2019 to 2026.

Antioxidants are chemicals that reduce or control the degradation process of plastics. They help in terminating the process of auto oxidation and are commonly used as plastic additives in approximately 95% of plastic products. They are categorized into five types, namely primary antioxidants, secondary antioxidants, multi-functional antioxidants, hydroxylamines, and carbon-centered radical scavengers.

Antioxidants are plastic additives that help in eliminating the plastic degradation process to extend the overall plastic lifecycle. Therefore, growth in plastic production and its resulting demand in various end-use industries is the major factor that drives the growth of this market. Plastics are cost-effective in nature as compared to other material, such as metals, for which there is a significant demand in the market to fulfill manufacturing needs. The automotive industry is shifting toward building fuel-efficient vehicles and hence manufacturers are looking for various materials to reduce the overall vehicle weight. In such condition, plastic has a proven track record that not only reduces vehicle weight but also lowers the costs over metals. As a result, plastic is highly preferred in the automotive industry, thereby boosting the demand for plastic antioxidants. On the other hand, being a crude-based product, plastic leads to few health and environmental hazards that restrains the overall market growth. Moreover, increase in use of plastic in the agriculture sector is expected to offer new growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
