Chapter 1: Introduction
The global market for antioxidants has been growing at a significant rate over the past five years, mostly driven by Asia-Pacific, and is keeping pace with applications in industries such as plastics and rubber, food, cosmetics, fuel additives and animal feed.

Although research and development (R&D) in antioxidants technologies has reduced overall operating costs, it has also made the industry more protective.

Antioxidants are molecules that prevent other molecules from oxidation by inhibiting the initiation or propagation of oxidative chain reactions. When assessing the market, antioxidants are broadly divided into five types: aminic, phenolic, phosphite, thioesters and natural-based.

Antioxidants are growing in popularity based on trends in health and well-being, increased use of anti- aging serums, growing demand for food preservatives as well as fuel additives used primarily in the plastics and rubber industry. The growth outlook for antioxidants is expected to be highest in Asia- Pacific, followed by Europe and North America.

Major players in the antioxidants market are Addivant, Baker Hughes Inc., BASF, Chemtura Corp., Clariant, Danisco, DSM, Eastman Chemical Co., Evonik Industries, Kemin Europa, Naturex Inc., Perstorp, SI Group, Songwon Industrial Co., Sumitomo Chemical, Dow Chemical and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The report also highlights major suppliers in the industry.

Chapter 2: Summary and Highlights
Antioxidants are broadly divided into five types: aminic, phenolic, phosphite, thioesters and natural- based. Oxidation incurs the loss or transfer of electrons or hydrogen via the reaction of two or more substances to an oxidizing agent. Antioxidants prevent other molecules from oxidation by inhibiting the initiation or propagation of oxidative chain reactions.

Antioxidants continue to be the preferred choice over other additives, mainly for plastic resin and the rubber processing industries. The food, cosmetics, fuel additives, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, leather, ink and coatings industries also depend on antioxidants as essential additives for applications such as abating discoloration, flex cracking, odor control and increasing tensile strength.

BCC Research projects that the global market for antioxidants will grow from $5.2 billion in 2017 to $6.4 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 4.2%.

Rubber and latex, along with plastic resin, are the largest application markets for antioxidants. Increased motorcycle and bicycle production in China has led to rising demands for rubber for the manufacture of vehicle tires. Non-tire rubber applications are also expected to grow at a high rate due to the rising levels of global manufacturing activities. Rubber is used in industrial applications such as vibration control and sealing, and many automotive parts such as gaskets, hoses and belts are all manufactured from rubber.

Oxidation of food items often leads to color decomposition, rancidity and a reduction in nutritional value. Use of antioxidants in preserving food products is one of best ways to improve their shelf life. In recent years, the demand for antioxidants has significantly increased because of their incredible ability to preserve food for long durations.

Increased production of packaged food items, particularly processed meat, is translating into higher demand for food preserving substances and additives, and antioxidants are the preferred choice for manufacturers. However, growing awareness about health and skepticism over synthetic antioxidants are propelling the demand for natural antioxidants.

Rosemary extracts in particular are now the preferred natural antioxidant for food processing due to their exceptional ability to protect fat oxidation and help prevent color decomposition. Growing concerns over food safety and increasing demand for natural ingredients are expected to boost the demand for these antioxidants.

Natural antioxidants are safe and do not have any side effects. Higher consumption of processed food containing artificial ingredients, which invokes the risk of acquiring chronic and terminal diseases, is characterizing the need for natural antioxidants. In addition, the increasing prevalence of diabetes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cancer and neurological disorders are heightening demand for natural antioxidants in consumable products.

The consumption of antioxidants can slow down the aging process and several cosmetic products have been launched that contain natural antioxidants and increased demand is expected to drive the global antioxidants market.

The low cost of manufacturing synthetic antioxidants and their easy availability are the two main factors supporting growth. The natural antioxidants segment will also witness steady growth, but it will be slow in comparison due to higher manufacturing costs. Increasing consumer interest in natural ingredients and green food are expected to buoy demand.
