Performance Minerals Additives Market: Overview

  • Performance mineral additives are widely used in plastics, and the trend is for ever-increasing use of mineral additives driven by several factors. Firstly, performance mineral additives allow for manufacture of plastic materials with a much wider range of properties, including properties not normally associated with plastics, such as high electrical conductivity or thermal conductivity. Performance mineral additives can be utilized to reinforce plastics; for instance, performance mineral additives such as talc and glass fiber have enabled polypropylene to compete successfully in the engineering polymers market. Almost all plastics are made from petroleum feedstock, and the price of plastics inexorably increases as the abundance of oil & gas declines. In contrast, performance mineral additives are abundant and prices increase at a sluggish pace, with the consequence that filled plastics become more commercially attractive year after year.
  • Most popular performance mineral additives are calcium carbonate, talc, kaolin, mica, and glass. Several types of specialty additives are available; however, these common types are a good starting point for understanding structure-property relationships. They are cost-effective and hence, are widely used in numerous industries, including automotive, packaging, agriculture, and pharmaceutical.
  • The global performance minerals additives market is primarily driven by industrialization and expansion of the construction industry. Automobile and packaging are the other industries that drive the performance minerals additives market.
  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the performance minerals additives market for the actual year of 2020 and the forecast period 2021 to 2031, rise in usage of performance minerals additives in the construction industry is a key factor that is expected to boost the global performance minerals additives market during the forecast period
