Plasticizers market is likely to grow considerably in the forecast time period, owing to the increasing demand for plasticizers by the packaging, automotive, and construction industries. Additionally, the growing demand for polymers in garden hoses, water-proof roofs, swimming pool liners, and footwear is further expected to boost the plasticizers market growth globally. Besides, the growing construction industry that extensively uses plasticized polymers for making flooring and roofing cover is further expected to positively affect the plasticizers market growth. However, rising environmental regulations and the availability of substitutes might hamper this market’s growth in the near future. Alternatively, the constant product innovations and increasing R&D activities to generate bio-derived plasticizers are anticipated to create new growth opportunities in the plasticizers market during the estimated time period.

The plasticizers market is divided based on type and application. By type, the market for plasticizers includes phthalates, terephthalates, aliphatics, trimellitates, polymerics, epoxy, phosphates, and others. The phthalates segment dominated the market and is expected to maintain its dominance in the upcoming years, due to its cost-effectiveness and easy availability, among other versatile properties. This resulted in the product being widely used in automotive, cables and wires, and flooring and roofing covering applications. Moreover, epoxy and polymerics plasticizers are expected to grow at a fast rate, due to increased product demand for construction and automotive applications. By application, the plasticizers market is segmented into automotive, cables and wires, flooring and roofing covering, coated fabric, consumer goods, packaging, and others. Increasing usage of plasticizers, especially in the automotive and cables and wires industries, is further estimated to drive this market’s growth during the forecast time period.

In 2017, Asia Pacific dominated the market and is expected to continue its dominance in the upcoming years as well. The regions thriving automotive industry has increased the demand for plasticizers in PVC, which is used to produce protective underbody coatings for cars. Plasticized PVC plays a vital role in enhancing the appearance and reducing wear and tear of cars. Furthermore, increasing construction activities in developing countries, such as China and India, are projected to enhance the demand for PVC cladding and roofing. Plasticizers are widely used to manufacture flexible PVC roofing membranes. Thus, these factors are likely to boost the plasticizers market in this region.

North America is likely to be the fastest growing region, due to the presence of chemicals, packaging, and healthcare industries in the region. The surge in the application of plasticizers for producing plastic food packaging films is also projected to propel this market’s growth during the forecast time period. Additionally, plasticizers are used to make inks softer, flexible, and adherent. Plasticizers are used in inks to maintain adhesion in low temperatures, such as in frozen food packaging. In 2017, the U.S. held the largest market share, followed by Canada, and is likely to maintain its regional dominance in the near future, due to the country’s flourishing packaging industry.
