According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the plastic additive market looks attractive with opportunities in the construction, packaging, consumer goods, and automotive industries. The global plastic additive market is expected to reach an estimated $50 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 4.2% from 2018 to 2023. The major growth drivers for this market are increasing demand for plastics in various end use markets and increasingly stringent safety standards for smoke and flammability.
In this market, plasticizers, flame retardants, pigments, stabilizers, impact modifiers, antioxidants, blowing agents, lubricants, antistatic agents, and other additives are used to modify and enhance the end use properties of wide range of plastics. Lucintel forecasts that plasticizer will remain the largest additive type over the forecast period supported by growth in demand for flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic in film & sheet, wire & cable, and flooring applications. Lucintel predicts that the flame retardant additive is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period due to more stringent fire safety standards and growth in the markets of construction and electrical & electronics.

Within the plastic additive market, construction will remain the largest end use industry during the forecast period due to increasing demand for plastics in construction; these include pipes and fittings, flooring, wall-coverings, and wire and cable applications. Lucintel predicts that the demand for plastic additives for packaging end use is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period due to its growing demand in the areas of food and beverages, household products, industrial products, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
Plastic additives are used in polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), other commodity plastics, engineering plastics, and high performance plastics to improve the overall performance and processing properties. PVC will remain the largest segment by plastic type due to high consumption of plasticizer additives in PVC for flexibility. Lucintel predicts that the high performance plastic type will witness the highest growth because of growing demand for plastics such as polyimide (PI), polyether ether ketone (PEEK), and poly-tetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in the transportation, medical, electronics, and industrial sectors.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume and will experience the highest growth over the forecast period supported by high consumption of plastics in China and India. China is the largest market for plastic additives due to high production of plastics considering the high domestic demand, easy availability of raw materials, low production, and labor cost.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the development of bio based plasticizers and growing consumption of nanopowder or nanoparticle aluminum hydroxides. Clariant, BASF SE, ExxonMobil, Akzo Nobel, and The DowDuPont, Evonik Industries, Lanxess, and Nabaltec are among the major manufactures of plastic additives.
