Key Findings

•The demand for antioxidant blends will increase as a result of the synergistic effects produced by the combination of primary and secondary antioxidants that improve performance and processing stability.
•Non-halogenated flame retardants, especially phosphorous-based flame retardants, are finding increased penetration in engineering plastics applications.
•The lightweighting trend observed in the automotive, aerospace, and packaging industries are exposing the plastic components to oxidative conditions, driving the demand for antioxidants and light stabilizers.
•Environmental regulations and changing customer preferences towards green solutions are the factors driving innovation in the market.
•Additive manufacturers are looking for mergers and joint ventures to improve their product capabilities and to boost their market shares.

CEO’s Perspective

A phase out of halogenated flame retardants by major electrical and electronics companies is driving the market for non-halogenated flame retardants.
Enhanced support for and collaborative research with customers are the key factors in the highly competitive engineering plastics additives market.
Engineering plastics production in North America is expected to grow over the forecast period as a result of the shale gas boom, which will continue to drive the antioxidants market.
Investments in product differentiation and new product developments, such as core-shell modifiers and non-halogenated flame retardants, will give companies a competitive advantage.
Customers prefer a one-stop solution to their engineering plastics requirements. Hence, additive manufacturers with a diversified product portfolio and a presence across product segments will attract customers.
