The growing demand for automobiles is expected to propel the growth of the plastisol market going forward.Automobiles refer to vehicles that have four wheels and comprise cars, trucks, and other vehicles.
Plastisol is used in the manufacturing process of automobiles in grips for handles, insulation of various electrical components, limiting noise, vibration, friction, rubbing, and deadening impacts, aiding safety and comfort in various automobile component manufacturing. For instance, according to data by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, a China-based non-profit social organization of automobile manufacturers, auto sales reached 2.38 million units in August, increasing 32.1% from a year in China as of 2022. Furthermore, according to data by the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA), an India-based association of automobile retailers, vehicle sales in August 2022 have reached 15,21,490 units, an increase of 8.3% over 1,404,704 units sold until August 2021 in India. Therefore, the growing demand for automobiles is driving the plastisol market.
Product innovations have emerged as a key trend gaining popularity in the plastisol market.Major companies operating in the market are focused on innovating new products to gain a competitive edge in the market.
For Instance, in March 2020, Monarch Color Corp, a US-based accurate printing supply company launched two new plastisol inks: ULT II, ultra-low temperature white plastisol ink, and ULT Shield Grey, an ultra-low temperature, dye-blocking, under base grey.The ULT II White is an improvement over the ULT White, with a smaller body.
For manual printers, this innovation makes the ink easier to print with.The ULT II White was designed to be used with the ULT Shield Grey.
Similar to the ULT II, the ULT Shield Grey cures at a low temperature of 270 °F. On dye-sublimated or badly colored materials, Monarch proposes using the Shield Grey in conjunction with the ULT II.
In July 2020, PolyOn, a US-based manufacturer of specialized polymer material acquired Clariant Masterbatch for a deal amount of $1.44 billion. Through this acquisition, the combined entity will change its name to Aviant, and it aims to provide sustainable solutions for its customers.
