The global impact modifiers market is projected to reach USD 13.13 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the impact modifiers market is primarily triggered by the huge demand for plastic products from the packaging, construction, automotive, and consumer goods industries. Also, factors such as increasing applicability of impact modifiers across varied end-use industries, technological advancements, and the growing demand of impact modifiers in the Asia-Pacific region are driving the growth of the impact modifiers market.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) and MBS (Methacrylate-butadiene-styrene) are the oldest impact modifiers used in plastic products. ABS combines the strength and rigidity of styrene polymers and acrylonitrile with the toughness of polybutadiene rubber. The significant properties of ABS impact modifiers are resistance and toughness. When this modifier is added to products, it improves their impact resistance, toughness, and heat resistance properties. PVC is the largest application segment of the impact modifiers market, and is projected to account for the largest share of the global impact modifiers market, in terms of volume, by 2021. This growth is mainly attributed to its easy availability and low cost as well as the increasing applicability of PVC among varied end-use industries, such as packaging, construction, automotive, and consumer goods.

The packaging segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global impact modifiers market in 2016, in terms of volume. The increasing demand of impact modifiers from the pharmaceutical and food packaging sectors is driving the growth of the impact modifiers market in the packaging application.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the largest market share of the global impact modifiers market in 2016, followed by North America. Asia-Pacific is also one of the fastest-growing regions in the impact modifiers market. The market in this region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the expansion in the construction sector in countries, such as China and India.

Impact Modifiers Market

The impact modifiers market in Europe registered slow growth in the last five years. This was primarily due to the maturing markets in economies such as Germany, France, Italy, and the U.K., moreover, the financial turmoil in Europe resulted in a decline in demand for packaged food, which affected the growth of impact modifiers market in the packaging industry in the region.

The global impact modifiers market is fragmented with several well-established players and few small players. Established players in this market have an edge over small players in terms of product offerings, innovations, and distribution network.
