Green Polymer Additive Market Overview

Globally it has been marked that the green polymer additive industry occupies a green polymer additive market value of USD in billion during the year of 2018. The market projects at a CAGR of 6.80% during the market forecast period of 2022-2030.hese nature-based green polymers when added to polymers increase their properties. Their properties include an increase in toughness and a rise in the flexibility of the polymers. It is also used for increasing the recyclability of the polymerization process thus it lessens the use of some of the additives like phthalates. Besides it, the low formulation costs of the green polymer additives drive up the green polymer additive market growth during the forecast period.


In the year 2020, the majority of industries suffered a decline due to COVID. Countries spread throughout the globe especially in Asia Pacific regions, European regions, and some of the Middle East and African regions have dealt with a high number of COVID cases. Industrial operations are largely hindered. The demand for raw materials for the manufacture of green polymer additives was destroyed. Moreover, there was a change in the supply chain and consumer behavior. The government imposed certain shutdowns and lockdowns due to which the manufacturing units suffered shutdowns. It will take a few times for the industries to revive and will generate the demand for green polymer very soon.

Globally, the green polymer additive industry brings large opportunities owing to the rise in inclination of the packaging and plastics industry thus leading to the manufacture of sustainable and eco-friendly products. Reducing the dependency on petroleum products raises market demand and thus boosts up the green polymer additive market size in the forecast period.OpportunitiesWidespread change in lifestyle and globalization has led to the rise in green polymer additive market size. Using green polymer for other applications has raised the demand of the market.ChallengesFrom the green polymer additive market trends,it has been marked that the technological constraints and the lack in the availability of raw materials along with the lack of suppliers and manufacturers are the major challenging factors that disrupt the green polymer additive market size.Cumulative GrowthSome of the strict rules and regulations imposed by the government towards restricting the consumption of green polymer additives have raised the demand for polymer additives products in the market.RestraintsSome of the new laws and bans on the manufacturing of certain end products are the restraining factors for growth. Some scientific studies have imposed certain restrictions on some types of green polymer end-products and have hampered the expansion of market size. These regulatory frameworks are limiting too much use of highly flammable substances.


By typeGlobally the green polymer additive market has been classified based on product type, application, and also based on region. Based on product type, globally the green polymer market has been segmented based on plasticizers, stabilizers, some lubricants, antioxidant agents, anti-fogging agents, flame retardation agents, and many more. The plasticizers division covers the most dominant green polymer additive market share in 2018, owing to the use of additives for manufacturing polyvinyl chloride. As per the growing green polymer additive market trends, it was marked that the end-users have been classified into packaging section, injection molding unit, automotive sector, biopolymers industries, and many more. The packaging unit covers the large unit and the most dominant green polymer additive market share.By technologyTechnology leads to continuous innovation and increases the need for lighter materials where it is used for several purposes. Such invention is driving up the market and is forcing us to replace conventional materials. Technology led to it acquiring some of the advanced properties.


Globally, the green polymer additive industry is classified into five regions: areas of the North American region, some of the European region, Asia-Pacific region, some of Latin America along the Middle East, and African areas. It was noted that the North American region covers the major green polymer additive market share in 2018 which thus raises the want of environmentally friendly packaging in the both packaging and [pharma sectors. Moreover, the North American region is more populated due to which the people are much more carrying out research and developmental activities which is raising the capabilities of the end products. The European market holds a significant share globally during the market forecast period and regionally the market has healthy growth during the market forecast period.


December 2021 - 24M Technologies and Volkswagen Group have announced the signing of a strategic partnership agreement to produce next-generation lithium-ion EV batteries with the use of the 24M SemiSolid platform. The target is to develop a semi-solid process, the 24M technology, which is an upgrade over the dry coating process in the automotive battery space. The goal is to produce significant cost optimization in further battery manufacture by decreasing material usage and removing numerous steps from the typical production process.November 2021- Canadian companies GreenMantra Technologies and Nova Chemicals Corp. announced the finishing of the second asphalt paving project based in Ontario, which integrates the equivalent of 700,000 plastic bags in post-consumer recycled plastic materials into a parking lot and two pathways. The asphalt paving project was finished at Nova’s latest polyethylene production plant located on Rokeby Line in St. Clair Township, near Sarnia.November 2021- Covestro and Farsoon announced the plans to introduce extra polymer 3D printing powders as both the firms strengthened their collaboration. Covestro uses Farsoon Laser Sintering Systems in the company’s legacy DSM additive production plants in the Netherlands and Germany particularly to process and print new materials. Emery Oleochemicals in January 2019, built a partnership with Omya Inc. and announced the expansion of the green polymer business. This helped in distributing the polymer additives among its old and new customers.
