The global plastic additives market is segmented based on type and end-use industry.

By type, the market is segmented into UV-stabilizers, plasticizers, antimicrobials, flame retardants, impact modifiers, antioxidants, and others. Plasticizers may dominate the global market due to heavy demand for flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC). But its carcinogenic properties may stunt its growth in the market in the coming years. However, development of non-phthalate plasticizers and demand in flexible packaging may fetch good returns.

Based on end-user industry, the global plastic additives market is segmented into electrical electronics, packaging, agriculture, building construction, consumer goods, automotive, and others. The packaging segment may generate massive demand for the global plastic additives market due to need for plastics with certain characteristics. Low cost and easy availability of plasticizers can assist the segment growth.
