These efforts are intended to make recycling previously unrecyclable polymers easier, such as flexible plastics used in packaging, which are frequently burned or disposed of in landfills. Similarly, Products That Slide, a well-known US-based manufacturer of plastic processing aids, developed a high-temperature purging component in April 2021. This purging agent targets engineer-grade resins such as polyphenylene sulfide, PEEK, PET, polyetherimide, and liquid crystal polymer.

Executive Summary

How has the market been affected by the rise in demand for purging compounds in the thermoplastic processing industry?

A particular plastic resin compound called a purging compound is used to clean main plastic machinery such as extruders, hot runners, blow molding machines, and injection molding machines. It decreases downtime and enhances quality by removing the carbon layer and other stains deposited on the equipment. A substance made specifically for cleaning thermoplastics, molding equipment, and extruders is known as a commercial purge compound. It often includes a base resin and several additives to clean the screw, barrel, and extruder die. The market for thermoplastics is anticipated to increase significantly throughout the anticipated period. Due to their increased benefit-to-cost ratio, low manufacturing costs, chemical resistance, impact resistance, smooth finish, and recyclable nature, thermoplastics had a global market value of USD 20 billion in 2020. The capacity of downstream processing and applications is growing in response to the demand in the automobile sector. Due to the abovementioned aspects, the application of purging compounds from the thermoplastic sector is anticipated to predominate during the forecast period.

Which are the key investments by the players in the Purging Compounds Industry?

What are the Major Driving Factors for the Purging Compounds Market?

The increased use of purging compounds in various sectors leads to lower production costs, less machine downtime, and less raw material waste, which is projected to affect the purging compound market's growth. In line with this, the expansion of the plastic industry and the increased demand for plastic processing machinery are expected to be key determinants favoring the growth of the purging compound market during the forecast period. Additionally, fast development in the automotive, pharmaceutical, electronic, and packaging industries and increased demand from the food and beverage industries are likely to benefit the purging compound market positively. The reduction in purging costs is the primary reason responsible for market expansion.

What are the Major Risks for the Purging Compounds Market?

While the enormous cost associated with producing purging compounds can threaten the market's expansion during the forecast mentioned above, the high prices of purging compounds and a lack of awareness regarding the advantages offered by purging compounds are likely to act as key restraints. The lack of knowledge about purifying communities in underdeveloped economies is another significant barrier.

Which is the Key Application in the Purging Compounds Market?

In 2021, the mechanical purging category dominated the market. Mechanical purging compounds are simple to utilize. Materials that do not require soaking. They are more efficient and use fewer resources. Furthermore, they perform better under high screw pressure and back pressure. Cleaning plastic production machinery requires the use of mechanical purging agents. These chemicals aid in the removal of polymer residue by mechanically scrubbing impurities from barrels and screws using abrasives or high-viscosity polymers. The mechanical thermoplastic purging mixture includes a carrier resin and scouring grains that are soft on the outside but solid on the inside; they clean metal surfaces safely and effectively without wearing down the machine.

How is the Purging Compounds Market performing in regions?

In 2021, the global purging compounds market was dominated by North America due to the growing demand for purge compounds in this region's plastic processing equipment industry. Rising demand for purge compounds due to their exceptional properties from the region's end-use industries is likely to drive the North American market. The region's high share is owing to substantial demand from U.S. processing plants, which has increased the region's high share. The extensive presence of demand-generating industries in this region, such as automotive, construction, polymer manufacturing, and others, accounts for market expansion.
