The plastic additives market was valued at USD 28.53 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 38.77 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 5.24%

Due to the growing population, rapid urbanization, and rising middle-class incomes, APAC countries will witness robust demand for plastic additives by end-user markets. To increase the innovative applications and for bioplastics, there will be heavy investments in the research and development of plastic additives in the forecast period. Thus, product growth is expected to remain stable and rising. Also, the innovation and usability of the additives for plastic have increased. This is the only reason why commodity plastics like Polyethylene, Polypropylene, PVC, or Polystyrene can be used in various engineering and even high-performance applications.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the plastic additives market-

• Cost effectiveness and commercialization
• Focus on developing the bio-based plastics
• Innovative Product Applications
• Rising demand for plastics from APAC and other regions
• Replacement of conventional materials with plastic


• Various regulations for the VOCs and toxic elements in the plastics have made it necessary for the vendors and manufacturers to invest in bio-based plastics.
• Due to their reliability, longevity, light weightiness, and cost-effectiveness, plastics are replacing materials such as wood and metal more and more often, especially in the construction industry. This will fuel market growth.
• Sectors such as packaging, consumer goods, and building and construction will emerge as major consumers of plastic additives. Factors such as fast-paced consumer lifestyle and technological advances will drive the demand for flexible packaging, e-commerce packaging, food and beverage packaging.
