The plasticizers market was valued at $15,179 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $18,538 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 2.9% from 2016 to 2022, according to a new report published by Allied Market Research. The phthalates type held two-thirds of the global market in 2015.

Plasticizers are additives applied in polymers & other materials to enhance their softness, flexibility, and processability. They are applicable in flooring & wall coverings, films & sheets, wires & cables, coated fabrics, consumer goods, and several others. The global plasticizers market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. Raw materials for plasticizers generally comprise esterification of different types of alcohols & acids as well as other chemicals as per the required application.

Emerging applications of plasticizers in various end-user industries and high demand for non-phthalate plasticizers in different regions are major factors that are expected to drive the market growth. However, strict government regulations over some of the phthalates and toxicity of PVC polymer may hamper this growth. Increase in demand for bio-based plasticizers for products, such as personal care cosmetics, toys, food contact materials, health care commodities, and others, are expected to create growth opportunities for various players in the market.

Bio-based plasticizers, such as epoxides & sebacates, are expected to grow at the highest CAGR throughout the analysis period, due to their remarkable properties such as non-toxic nature, high efficiency, improved heat stability, lower volatility, and others. These are employed in automotive, adhesive & sealants, paints & coatings, and other end uses.
In 2015, the phthalates type occupied major market in terms of revenue; However, this trend is expected to decline to some extent during the forecast period, owing to the harmful effects of few phthalate plasticizers such as endocrine disruption and damage to reproductive system as well as kidney, lungs, and liver, resulting in their complete or interim level ban by regulatory bodies. The main applications employing plasticizers include floorings & walls and wires & cables. Moreover, the wires & cables application segment accounted for second largest market share in 2015, and is expected to grow at the CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period.
