Polymer Processing Aid Market: Introduction

  • Rise in demand for polymers with enhanced properties is driving the demand for polymer processing aid across the globe. Polymer processing aid is used in the polymer formation process to improve the processing efficiency and quality of polymeric compounds.
  • Damages to polyethylene films during the manufacturing process can be reduced by optimum utilization of polymer processing aids. Furthermore, economic benefits can be attained by using polymer processing aids due to reduction in the production costs of polymers owing to the enhanced efficiency and high quality product. Thus, rise in demand for polymer products in various end-use applications such as aviation, automobile, defense, manufacturing, industrial, telecommunications, scientific research labs, and commercial facilities is fuelling the demand for polymer processing aid.
  • Surfaces of machineries are made stick resistant by using polymer processing aids during the processing of polymers into plastics. Polymer processing aids also provide other operational benefits such as improvement in surface quality, elimination of melt fractures, maintenance of operational temperature, and reduction in die deposits.
  • The optimum and controlled use of polymer processing aid is vital, as a small change in amount or quality of polymer processing aid can affect the whole batch. Furthermore, polymer processing aid is highly dependent on the type of polymers being used in the extrusion process that regulates the quality of finished products. These factors can act as challenges for the global polymer processing aid market during the forecast period.

Rise in Demand for Polymer Processing Aid in Blown Film & Cast Film Application

  • Polymer processing aid is used in blown film & cast film manufacturing process to enhance the quality in terms of mechanical strength and durability
  • Blown films & cast films are generally employed in the production of food and non-food packaging, agriculture films, and tapes. Rise in demand for packaging and agriculture films due to flourishing end-use industries, primarily in developing countries, is driving the demand for polymers such as high density polyethylene (HDPE), Linear Low Density polyethylene (LLDPE), and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) with improved performance parameters. This, in turn is anticipated to propel the demand for polymer processing aid market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is Dominant Region of Global Polymer Processing Aid Market

  • Geographically, the global polymer processing aid market can be split into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is projected to be a key region of the global polymer processing aid market due to the rise in demand for high strength and quality polymers in various end-use industries in the region
  • Rise in per capita consumption of plastics in numerous end-use industries owing to rapid industrial growth is driving the demand for polymer processing aid in Asia Pacific
  • The well-established electrical & electronics manufacturing industry in countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan; and increase in demand for packaging due to rise in FMCG consumption in Asia Pacific are driving the demand for clean and high strength plastic films. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the demand for polymer processing aid during the forecast period.
