Plastic fillers are added to polymers such as polyolefin, polyvinyl chloride, rubber and elastomers as a replacement to other costlier additives. These fillers reduce overall cost and improve mechanical properties of the host polymer. The plastic fillers may be divided according to type into oxides, hydro-oxides, salts, silicates, metals, carbon, natural polymers and synthetic polymers. The fill ratio of these fillers may vary from 10% to 70% depending upon the polymer and properties required.

The plastic fillers market has grown at a moderate pace over the past few years and this trend is expected to continue in the next five years. The growth is driven by the increasing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the biggest market for plastic fillers followed by North America and Europe, which together accounted for more than 90.0% market share in 2013. China is the biggest market for plastic fillers, followed by United States, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% between 2014 and 2019. The European market is comparatively mature and is experiencing slow growth; probably due to the flat growth of manufacturing and construction sectors. Salts (Calcium Carbonate) are the largest consumed type of plastic fillers having a market share of around 60.0%. Discontinuous fillers are widely used in the industry and dominate the polymer filler market by physical form.

This study aims to estimate the market of plastic fillers in 2013 and project its demand by 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the plastic fillers market. It provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market.

Plastic fillers: A projected value of 39000 KT by 2019, signifying firm annualized growth of 5.3% between 2014 and 2019.

Plastic fillers are added to polymers such as polyolefin, polyvinyl chloride, rubber and elastomers as a replacement to other costlier additives. These fillers reduce overall cost and improve mechanical properties of the host polymer. The plastic fillers may be divided according to type into oxides, hydro-oxides, salts, silicates, metals, carbon, natural polymers and synthetic polymers. The fill ratio of these fillers may vary from 10% to 70% depending upon the polymer and properties required.

Currently, the Asia-Pacific is the biggest market of plastic fillers, accounting for 45% of the total market size in terms of value in 2013. Among all the countries, the China dominates the plastic fillers market, which had the maximum market share of plastic fillers in 2013. Salts are the largest consumed type of plastic fillers, followed by silicates. China is the biggest market for plastic fillers, followed by United States, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% between 2014 and 2019. The European market is comparatively mature with a consumption growth rate well below the average market growth. The European plastic fillers market is expected to show the lowest CAGR of 4% between 2014 and 2019.

On the basis of type, the plastic fillers market is further categorized into oxides, hydro-oxides, salts, silicates, metals, carbon, natural polymers, synthetic polymers, others. Salts are the largest consumed of plastic fillers, followed by silicates.

On the basis of physical form, the plastic fillers market is further categorized into continuous fillers, discontinuous fillers, and nanofillers. The growth in plastic fillers market is primarily driven by growing demand from the Asia-Pacific region particularly from China.

The major players of plastic fillers include Imerys (Paris), Omya AG (U.S.), Mineral Technologies Inc. (U.S.), LKAB minerals (Sweden), and Hoffman minerals (Germany), Granic (Spain), Nyco Minerals (S&B) (Luxembourg), Kärntner Montanindustrie Gesellschaft m.b.H.
