Plastics additives are all types of low molecular or polymeric, organic or inorganic substances which are added to a polymeric compound to render them more useful or provide them with specific properties. Plastic additives are substances that are added in polymer to improve their characteristics such as strength, durability, and heat sensitivity.

The plastic additives market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.0% between 2014 and 2019 to reach $45.5 billion by 2019. The growth will be driven by the increasing disposable income and rapid urbanization. The Asia-Pacific region remains the largest market for plastic additives, followed by North America. The Asia-Pacific market is estimated to be the key growth area due to increasing consumption of plastics by the growing middle-class and upper middle-class population in the region.

Packaging is estimated to be the largest application of the plastic additives market in 2013. Packaging and automotive segments are projected to have the highest growth rate in plastic additives market by application between 2014 and 2019. Flame retardants segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate between 2014 and 2019 due to its increasing application in consumer goods segment and high loading factor. Commodity plastics are projected to continue its dominance in plastic additives market by 2019 as a result of its decreasing prices and wide applications in several end-use industries.

The plastic additives market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.4% between 2014 and 2019, in terms of volume.

The global plastic additives industry is driven by increasing consumption of plastics by the growing population, rising disposable income of the people, and rapid pace of urbanization and industrialization especially in the Asia-Pacific region. Plastic additives are used in various applications such as packaging, construction, automobile, consumer goods, and other applications such as agriculture, furniture, and sports among others.

The plastic additives market is also segmented by type, plastic type, application, and region. The plastic additives market can be classified into three key segments, on the basis of plastic type- commodity plastics, engineering plastics, and high performance plastics. Commodity plastics are the largest plastic additives segment by plastic type mainly attributed to the decreasing prices of polyolefins due to the shale gas boom. The plastic additives market can be classified into application segments, such as packaging, consumer goods, automotive, construction, and others. Packaging segment is the largest market of plastic additives due to growing demand from food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and agricultural end-use industries.

The plastic additives market can be classified into four key segments, on the basis of type plasticizers, flame retardants, impact modifiers, stabilizers, and other additives. Flame retardants segment is the fastest-growing type as it was due the increasing demand from various applications such as consumer goods and construction.

The Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to dominate the plastic additives market followed by North America majorly due to the increasing demand from packaging, automotive, and consumer goods segments. Europe is projected to witness a slow growth between 2014 and 2019 as their economy is still recovering from the economic crises. The plastic additives market has a highly fragmented structure, where there are many large and small manufacturers. The competition level in plastic additives market is expected to be moderate-to-high as the market players are concentrating towards new product developments and expansion to broaden their product offerings and have their active presence globally.
