Plasticizers have been employed to soften materials since ancient times, and they fulfill various functions needed in the plastics & rubber industry. They are usually combined with PVC or other polymers, to impart unique physical and technological properties which are used in various applications such as cable jacketing, floors & wall coverings, and coated fabrics. Plasticizers are basically segmented into phthalates and non-phthalates, where phthalates are further sub-divided into low phthalates & high phthalates.

The plasticizers market has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to grow at a decent pace in the next five years, mainly driven by the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific, escalating PVC demand, and development of high and non-phthalates. A significant amount of investments are made by various market players in order to be prepared to serve the high potential ones in future. The Asia-Pacific is the biggest consumer of plasticizers, which consumed a significant share of the total consumption in 2013, followed by Europe and North America. The European and North American markets are comparatively mature with a demand growth well below the average market growth. The Asia-Pacific is further expected to show high growth in future, mainly due to the high growth potential of the Indian & Chinese market, and budding PVC industry.

This study basically aims to estimate the market of plasticizers for 2014 and to project the expected demand of the same by 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the plasticizers market. It provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, and key issues in the market.

Plasticizers market is projected to reach $19,366.90 million by 2019, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of over 6.35%.

The market, along with its various types and sub-types, has witnessed a considerable growth in the recent years and this growth is projected to persist in the coming years. Phthalates are the most widely consumed type of plasticizers, with low phthalates being at the forefront. The demand for low phthalates is led by DOP, which accounted for a share of nearly 50.0% of the overall market in 2013. Asia-pacific is the biggest consumer of DOP, and China is at the forefront in terms of volumetric consumption of DOP in the region. Although DOP still leads the demand for plasticizers, this demand is expected to decline in the coming years, due to the stringent environment regulations especially in Europe and North America.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of plasticizers, which consumed more than half of the total demand in 2013. Among all the countries, China dominates the plasticizers market, which consumed the maximum volume of plasticizers in 2013. The market volume of plasticizers is comparatively low in the RoW region, but is expected show the highest CAGR from 2014 to 2019, followed by Asia-Pacific.

The overall demand is driven by the DOP and DINP/DIDP segment which collectively consumed almost three-fourth of the total global demand in 2013. DOP is the widely consumed low phthalate, whereas DINP/DIDP are the most consumed high phthalates. The non-phthalate plasticizers are projected to witness the highest growth between 2014 and 2019. Among the non-phthalates, DOTP is projected to be the strongest growth segment of plasticizers which is primarily due to the usage as a substitute to the harmful phthalates. Also, the bio-based segment is witnessed to grow at a notable pace in next few years. Some of the key players in the plasticizers market include BASF SE (Germany), ExxonMobil Corporation (U.S.), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), Evonik Industries AG
(Germany), LG Chem Ltd. (South Korea), Aekyung Petrochemical Co. Ltd (South Korea), UPC Technology Corporation (Taiwan), and Nan Ya Plastics Corporation (Taiwan).

This report covers the plasticizers market by various regions and major countries in each region. It also provides a detailed segmentation of the market on the basis of major types and sub-types, along with its projection till 2019.
