Market Overview:

The Polymer Processing Aid market is a major supplier to the global polymer industries as there it is mostly used during processing polymer to plastic. The market is calculated to reach a total of USD 2.46 billion by 2023 at a 5.26 % CAGR.

Recent Developments:

Putnam Corporation, a leading manufacturer of minimally invasive medical devices, has introduced RilSlix coated wires and mandrels. This new product can be used as a processing aid in catheter manufacturing.

iD Additives Inc., a USA based plastic products manufacturer, has launched an eco-friendly solution for rust removal on injection molds, Blown film dies. The dies are both fast and highly-effective in the rust removing process. The die named iD Eco-Pro 360 is a water-based, green die which is tested and verified by EPA which has inflammable, non-aerosol, and hazard-free benefits.

Polymer Processing Aid Market Value and Growth:

The Global Polymer Processing Aid market size was around USD 1.9 billion by revenue, at the end of 2018. It is anticipated to grow at CAGR of 5.26 % to reach USD 2.46 billion by 2023.

Polymer Processing Aid Market Drivers and Restraints:

The rising demand for blown & cast film in the end use industries for their unique characteristics drives the global market for polymer processing aid in the mentioned forecast period. The use of polymer processing aid prevents the materials from sticking to the surface of machines during the processing of polymers to plastics. It also helps to improve the surface quality, maintain operational temperature, reduce die deposits and eliminate melt fractures. These advantages to the polymer manufacturing industries make it essential for them to use PPA and thus driving the global polymer processing aid market. However, the insufficient number of R&D setups in this field restrains the global market as there is a lack of newer technologies. Also, the concentration of the global market in the Asia Pacific region may have a negative effect on the Polymer Processing Aid market’s global expansion.

Polymer Processing Aid Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Polymer Type

Based on the Polymet Type the global polymer processing aid market is segmented into Polyethylene, Polypropylene, and Others. The polyethylene segment of polymer type is the largest in terms of market volume and market value and is expected to remain the same during the forecast period. The polyethylene segment can be further classified into Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), High- Density Polyethylene (HDPE), and Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE). The increased consumption of high, low and linear low-density polyehtylenes in industries such as building & construction, automotive, packaging, and consumer goods is the main reason for the dominance of polyethylene in the global market.    

By Application

Based on the application of the polymer which is processed the global polymer processing aid market is categorized into Blown Film & Cast Film, Extrusion Blow Molding, Wire & Cable, Pipe & Tube, Fibers & Raffia, and Others. Among the mentioned applications the blown film & cast film application is calculated to have the largest growth rate in the aforementioned forecast period. This application currently has the largest market value and volume. The growth is mainly due to the rising demand for high-quality cleaning films mostly in Japan, China, India, and South Korea. Special characteristics of blown films like high mechanical strength and soft, flexible nature of cast films make them applicable in different sectors of end-use industries.

Polymer Processing Aid Market Geographical Analysis:

By geography, the Global Polymer Processing Aid market is segmented as Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle-East & Africa, and North America. The Asia Pacific had the largest global market share in the year 2018. It is projected to lead the global market with the highest growth rate in the forecast period, due to increasing demand for growing industries and scope of future opportunities, mainly in developing countries like Japan, India, and China. The market value of Europe and North America are nearly similar and are slow growing in nature when compared to the Asia Pacific. The low growth rate in these regions is the result of the regional advantages gained by the Asia Pacific like cheap labor and ease of resource availability. These advantages make the market centered in the Asia Pacific hence forcing Europe and North America to have slow growth in the aforementioned forecast period. The Middle East & Africa and Latin America regions, being in the low developing countries due to the contribution of low GDP countries, have fewer chances for industry growth. Hence, the Polymer Processing Aid market in these regions is slow growing in nature.
