Green Polymer Additive Market Trends
Rise in demand for sustainable and eco-friendly products represents one of the major factors to boost market growth globally
Green polymers are produced from renewable or synthetic materials. Green polymers are environmentally friendly because they doe not consist of any harmful chemicals, residues, or toxins. Polymer additives include various products—such as lubricants, plasticizers and viscosity depressants, antistatic and antifogging agents, and release agents; these are the major sustainable products in the green polymer additives market. Several sustainable products are made up of sustainable materials and formulated to optimize production and improve efficiency. The key factor driving the growth of the Green Polymer Additive Market is increasing consumers' awareness of sustainable products and rapidly increasing appeal for green and eco-friendly products.
PVC plasticizers play a crucial role in the green polymer additives market; they are also known as non-phthalate plasticizers. PVC plasticizers are environmentally friendly and have a wide range of applications in packaging and food utensils and containers in various end-use industries. These increase the viscosity and plasticity of materials and are usually combined with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or other polymers to impart unique properties. Hence, PVC plasticizers are expected to propel market growth.
For instance, Emery Oleochemicals provides high-performance and renewable polymer additive materials under the brands LOXIOL, EDENOL, and EMEROX. The company offers high-quality and reliable products for the plastic industry under these brands. The company also focuses on innovating products. Therefore, the increasing inclination of manufacturers toward sustainable and eco-friendly products is driving market growth.
Additionally, going green is the biggest ongoing trend in the industry during the assessment period. Many specialty chemicals manufacturers use green polymer additives such as lubricant, anti-block and slip agents, and other products at their production plants. Moreover, the biopolymer material is the most promising environmentally friendly polymer across various end-use industries.
Thereby, increasing consumer interests and green trends are anticipated to promote the global demand for green polymer additives market products over the forecast period.
