170+ Pages Research Report Plastic Antioxidants market to surpass USD 3.56 billion by 2030 from USD 2.00 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 5.95% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.

Product Overview

Antioxidants are stabilizing substances that react with reactive species and decompose them, slowing the oxidation process. They prevent thermally induced oxidation of plastics and other materials. Primary antioxidants and secondary antioxidants are two types of antioxidants utilized in polymers. Varying antioxidants have different levels of reactivity as a function of temperature, and they also react with and decompose the various radical intermediates in the oxidation process, giving polymers thermal stability.

Market Highlights

Plastic Antioxidants market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 5.95% in 2030

One of the main reasons driving the market's growth is the increasing demand for plastic antioxidants for polymer resins like PE, PP, PVC, PS, ABS, and others in sectors like automotive, consumer goods, building & construction, and medical & healthcare. Plastic antioxidants will be driven by factors such as plastics replacing traditional materials, rising demand in the medical industry, and increased urbanization in developing countries.

Recent highlights in the Plastic Antioxidants Market

  • In January 2019, at its Caojing location in Shanghai, China, BASF SE established a new antioxidant production factory. The facility is expected to have a capacity of 42,000 tonnes per year. It is expected to create phenolics, amines, phosphites, and mixes, among other antioxidants

Plastic Antioxidants Market: Segments

segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Plastic Antioxidants Market is segmented by Type into Phenols, Amines, Phosphites, Organic Sulfides, Antioxidant Blends, and Others. Among these, the Phenols segment is expected to dominate the market in the forecast period. Phenols are known to slow the oxidation of organic materials by transferring hydrogen from their OH group to the chain that carries ROO radicals. However, the antioxidant capacity of phenols is greatly reduced prior to the transfer of hydrogen atoms by the hydrogen that absorbs solvents. Once the hydrogen bond is transferred, phenol is a strong antioxidant. It is one among the most common antioxidants used in the manufacturing of plastics. As a result, phenolic antioxidants are the most often utilized plastic additive.

Polyethylene segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Plastic Antioxidants Market is segmented by End-user into Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, Polystyrene, and Others. Among these, the Polyethylene segment will dominate the market in the forecast period. Polyethylene is a lightweight, long-lasting plastic that is manufactured in excess of 100 million tonnes per year due to its wide range of applications. It is utilized in a variety of sectors, including packaging, automotive, electronics, and others, as films, tubes, plastic components, laminates, and other materials. In comparison to other markets, the packaging is the largest consumer of polyethylene, and its varieties, such as HDPE, LDPE, and LLDPE, account for about 35% of the market.

Market Dynamics


Plastics gaining preference over conventional materials

Antioxidants may be located in a range of polymers, including PE, PP, and PVC. Packaging, building and construction, and automobile sectors all employ these polymers. Plastics outperform traditional materials like metals, glass, paper, and ceramics in terms of mechanical and electrical characteristics, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. Plastics have replaced metals, glass, paper, and ceramics in the packaging, building & construction, and automotive sectors due to continuous innovation and the demand for more lightweight materials in various industries. The market for plastic antioxidants is projected to grow as a result of this.


Health Effects of Synthetic Plastic Antioxidants

Plastics are coated with antioxidants to preserve their structure and make them more thermally stable. Synthetic antioxidants, such as 2,6 di-tert-butyl-p-cresol (BHT), which is commonly used in polymers like PP and HDPE, however, have an adverse effect on human health. According to research, BHT produces mutations, cancers, and endocrine impacts in test animals. In humans, it also produces allergic reactions. Plastics containing antioxidants are used in a variety of home appliances, automobile parts, food packaging, and construction materials. These hazardous substances move from the plastic and into the human body. The demand for phenolic antioxidants is declining as a result of their negative health consequences.
