Studies Explore Potential Uses of Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers for Large Joint Replacement Procedures

While the paints & coatings and plastics application segments are expected to hold significant share of the hindered amine light stabilizers market in terms of market share and value, owing to research and advancements in arthroplasty, use of hindered amine light stabilizers is on the rise, particularly for large joint replacement. Traditionally, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has played a critical role as a bearing component material in joint replacement procedures.

However, issues pertaining to wear resistance surfaced repeatedly, which paved the way for the entry of Highly Crosslinked Polyethylenes. In 2018, a UHMWPE covered with hindered amine light stabilizers was developed for applications, such as large joint replacement procedures in which a high degree of resistance to wear and optimum mechanical properties is imperative. The results of the biocompatibility and mechanical tests offered significant promise– a factor that has persuaded experts in the field to fuel investments to identify the benefits and advantages of hindered amine light stabilizers.

While research and development are likely to open new avenues for the hindered amine light stabilizers market, stakeholders are also expected to lean toward inorganic growth strategies, including mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, product launches, and strategic alliances. For instance, the SONGWON Industrial Group and Sabo S.p.A. that are long-term business partners launched a new and cutting-edge light stabilizer system, SABO®STAB UV 216, which was primarily developed for complex agricultural applications.

Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers Market: Overview

  • Hindered amine light stabilizers (HALSs) are derivatives of 2, 2, 6, 6-tetramethyl piperidine (TMP). They act as radical scavengers and inhibit the photo-oxidative degradation of polymers in coatings, adhesives, and sealants.
  • UV absorbers filter out the harmful UV light, thereby preventing change in color of the resin; the substrate underneath; and colorants employed in coatings, inks, adhesives, and sealants. HALSs trap free radicals once they are formed. These are also effective in preventing surface defects such as loss of gloss, cracking, and chalking.

Key Drivers of Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers Market

  • Consumers in developed as well as developing countries have different mobility needs. Constant urbanization is expected to lead to increase in car ownerships in the near future. Rise in car ownerships is anticipated to boost the demand for automotive refinish coatings in the near future. The key function of automotive refinish coatings is to offer stabilization in different conditions such as ultraviolet rays, humidity, and pollutants. In order to prevent automotive paint degradation, yellowing, and chalking due to UV light, hindered amine light stabilizers are used. They effectively maintain paint gloss and enhance weather-resistance capacity of the paint.
  • Increase in sales of new vehicles and rise in the number of on-road vehicles in regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa are estimated to propel the demand for automotive coatings in these regions during the forecast period.
