 Polymer processing aid is high-performance fluoroelastomer used in the processing of polyolefin polymers. It is used in the production and processing of different polymers and in the plastic industries. Polymer processing aid is used to enhance the properties of plastics products. It gives the finished plastic product aesthetic and glossy look, which ultimately appeals to consumers. It removes flow marks and dies lines which enhances the product look and brings clarity. The type of polymers available are polyethylene, polypropylene, etc. and further sub- types of polyethylene are HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE. Polymer processing aid finds its applications in the area from blown film to fibre, profile extrusion, pipe/tubing, and cabling processes. Also, resins producers, compounders, and masterbatchers are the users of a polymer processing aid.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the production of polymer processing aid attributed to the lockdown in countries worldwide this has hampered the growth of polymer processing aid from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2021
  • COVID-19 has already affected the sales of polymer processing aid in the second and third quarter of 2020 and is anticipated to grow in year 2021.
  • The major demand for polymer processing aid was previously noticed from countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, UK, and China which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus thereby declining the demand for polymer processing aid.
  • Further potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves polymer processing aid manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce the expenses. Whereas few players also adopted employee lay-offs to sustain during the COVID-19 health crisis.
  • Polymer processing aid manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce operations and supply chains to respond to ward immediate crisis and find new ways of working after COVID-19 for instance provision of sanitizers maintaining social distancing as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health and safety of the workforce.

Top Impacting Factors

Demand for polymer processing aid is positively related to the demand for plastic, and the application of plastic is increasing rapidly in various sectors, hence impacting the growth of the market positively. There has been a surge in demand for PP and PE masks, medical gowns, and other medical supplies due to the pandemic, and this is another factor responsible for the growth of the polymer processing aid market. There is an increase in the use of HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE in construction activities, automotive industries, and consumer goods, which boosts the demand for this sub type of polyethylene. Also, there is an increase in the demand for packaged items among consumers which boosts the growth of the healthcare activities. All this requires the use of polypropylene, which in turn fosters the growth of the polymer processing aid market.
