A plasticizer is a substance, which added to a material usually a plastic, resin or elastomer, to improve its processability, flexibility and stretchability. Plasticizers is a versatile product providing unique contributions in widely varying applications. Plasticizer can decrease melt viscosity, glass transition temperature and elasticity without changing the basic properties of plasticized material. In general, even small amount of plasticizer have noticeable effect on most plasticized materials. There are basically two types of plasticizers viz., phthalates and non- phthalates. In 2016, phthalates are widely used plasticizer owing to its high usage in various end use applications such as flooring & wall, film & sheet coverings, wires & cables, coated fabrics, consumer goods and others (medical, sports, & adhesive & sealants applications).

Plasticizer Market

In 2016, the Phthalates segment dominated the global plasticizers market and will continue to dominate the market in upcoming years. The demand for phthalates is led by Dioctyl Phthalate (DOP), which accounted for a share of more than 40% of the overall market in 2016. Various applications such as flooring & wall, film & sheet coverings, wires & cables, coated fabrics and consumer goods, are the key contributors to the dominance of this segment in the global plasticizers market.

However the non-phthalate plasticizers are projected to witness the highest growth from 2017 to 2025. Among the non-phthalates, Dioctyl Terephthalate (DOTP) is projected to be the highest growth segment of plasticizers which is primarily due to the usage as a substitute to the harmful phthalates. Also bio-based plasticizers are expected to grow at higher level owing to increasing demand for biodegradable and environment friendly plasticizers.

Based on application, the plasticizers market is categorized into following segments:

  • Flooring & Wall
  • Film & Sheet Coverings
  • Wires & Cables
  • Coated Fabrics
  • Consumer Goods
  • Others (Medical, Sports, & Adhesive & Sealants Applications)

Plasticizer Market

In 2016, the wires and cables segment has a substantial share in global plasticizers market and will continue to dominate the market in upcoming years. There is a good amount of demand is expected from electrical and cable industry, owing to increasing demand from developing economies like India and China. Plasticizers are used in various wire and cable products, such as insulation and jacketing for electrical conductors, insulation for fiber optic cables. It is also used extensively for coverings owing to its properties such as viscosity reducers, low volatile organic compounds and fast fusers. Plasticizers are also widely used as a concrete additive.  Plasticizers also finds its application in medical industry for blood bags, IV tubing, biohazard containment structures and other medical devices.
