"Global nucleating agents market forecasted to grow at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 6.20 percent from 2016 to 2026"

The overall nucleating agents market is estimated to grow ~$4.4B by 2026, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.20 percent from 2016 to 2026. Increase in this sector is anticipated to be driven by the increasing demand for rigid packaging for foods & beverages. Also, the uses of nucleating & clarifying agents help in the reduction of the cycle time for polymer processing. This is anticipated to catalyze the sector demand for nucleating agents, as the reduced cycle time results in a higher production rate and the efficient production of polymers for different applications.

"Polypropylene to be the most important polymer segment of the overall nucleating agents market"

The polypropylene segment is anticipated to lead the overall nucleating agents market during the outlook period, in terms of value significance and quantity. The growing demand for polypropylene in the packaging and consumer products application is predicted to push the demand for PP. Also, the capacity expansions of PP plants in emerging economies including China, India (IN), Thailand (TH) and Middle Eastern countries is predicted to push the demand for nucleating agents for better and efficient production.

"Packaging to be the biggest application segment of the overall nucleating agents market"

The packaging application segment is anticipated to be the most important application segment for nucleating agents from 2016 to 2026, in terms of value importance and quantity. This increase is primarily due to the increasing demand for high quality packaging across different industries. Nucleating agents impart better physical properties including impact resistance, transparency, and crystallization temperature. This is predicted to push the demand for nucleating agents used in different polymers for the packaging application.

"Asia-Pac to be the biggest and quickest-rising area in the overall nucleating agents market"

The Asia Pacific (APAC) area is the quickest-increasing area in the overall nucleating agents market. The rising production capacities of several polymers and the increasing petrochemical sector in China (CN), India (IN) and Thailand (TH) is predicted to push the demand for nucleating agents in this zone. The industry demand for different polymers in this area is influenced by the rise in the packaging, consumer products, and automotive sectors.
