Plasticizers are additives used in applications are for plastics that increase the plasticity or fluidity of a material. They are most commonly phthalate esters in PVC applications. Plasticizers provide viscosity, flexibility, softness, or other properties to the finished product. At the same time they offer protection against the effects of weathering and temperature, thereby helping to maintain the product’s functionality.

Rapidly growing demand for PVC coupled with the growing demand for high and non phthalates are expected to be the major drivers of the plasticizers market. However, the declining market for DOP may hamper the market growth in the near future. Nonetheless, ongoing research on biobased pesticides may open growth opportunities for the market within the forecast period.
