Organic Peroxide Market Trends




  • Rising demand from several end-use industries is driving the market growth




Market CAGR for organic peroxide is driven by the rising demand from several end-use industries such as automotive, construction, electrical & electronics, and composites. The demand for organic peroxide as a catalyst in manufacturing commodities for packaging, personal care, and detergents is estimated to fuel the organic peroxide market share during the forecast period. The increasing usage of engineered plastics has enhanced the existing manufacturing capacity of the plastic sector, thereby intensifying the requirement for organic peroxide in polymerization processes. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, increasing infrastructure activities, and industrialization are expected to enhance the demand for plastic.


The growing production of synthetic rubber and elastomers are acting as prominent driving factors for market growth for organic peroxide. As per The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG), the world production of natural rubber enhanced by 5.4% from 13.065 million tonnes in 2020 to 13.770 million tonnes in 2021. Similarly, as per the National Bureau of Statistics China, the production of tires from January to August 2021 was 596.04 million, which increased by 22.1% compared to 2020. The growing production of rubber and thermoplastics, which uses organic peroxide in manufacturing, is expected to drive organic peroxide market revenue.


The paradigm shift in the textile industry is highly based on the application of new information and communication technologies which has entirely improved the long-distance supply chain capabilities and established a virtual exchange base that made a stable interactive platform for suppliers and buyers. Such revolutionary change in the entire industry had brought consumers much closer to various products and enabled all interested parties to reconsider the role of stakeholders in the entire value chain. Higher demand for textiles over the forecast period will substantially increase the requirement for organic peroxide altogether.


Fluctuating raw material prices often play a major role in determining the future demand for manufacturing such catalysts. High raw material prices reflect the market price over the end products, eventually contributing to higher profits. The presence or absence of any end-use industry will certainly swing the demand on either side over the projected period, and the requirement for the premium product is anticipated to surge. The expanding interest of consumers' preference to use engineered plastics has increased the existing manufacturing capacity of industries, thereby escalating the requirement of products for polymerization processes drives the market for organic peroxide.


Organic Peroxide Market Segment Insights


Organic Peroxide Type Insights


The organic peroxide market segmentation, based on type, includes ketone peroxide, diacetyl peroxide, percarbonates, peroxy ketals, and others. The ketone peroxide segment dominated the market, accounting for major market revenue over the forecast period. This is due to the increasing demand for plastic-reinforced glass or commonly known as fiberglass, on account of the production of watercraft in marine parts, substituting the use of wood and steel structures, and increasing demand for automotive in emerging economies is expected to propel the consumption of ketone for various crosslinking. Rising growth in the aviation sector based on the increasing demand for low-cost fares is anticipated to swing the requirement for high-end fiberglass thus increasing the consumption of the product over the forecast period drives the market for organic peroxide.


Organic Peroxide Application Insights


The organic peroxide market segmentation, based on application, includes paper & textiles, detergents, plastic & rubber, coatings & adhesives, personal care, and others. The plastic & rubber category generated the most income over the forecast period. This is due to the increasing requirement for hardened plastics such as polyvinyl chloride, thermosetting plastics, and plastic-reinforced glasses because of growing demand in residential construction and profile application is anticipated to multiply the production rate, which will surge the demand for the market.
