About the Report

Demand for anti-block additives has witnessed significant growth over the past years. This growth rate is expected to sustain over the coming years as well owing to increasing demand for packaging in food and pharmaceutical industries, especially in China, Japan, India, and Vietnam. Anti-block additives re used in all types of plastic films to prevent stickiness in between polymer films.

These additives are widely used in polymers such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP).

ESOMAR-certified market analysis and consulting company Persistence Market Research provides insights into key factors driving demand for anti-block additives in its latest report. In addition to evaluating the effect COVID-19 has had on the market, the study monitors global anti-block additive sales in 20+ high-growth markets, and details the trends in end-use industries as well.

Historical Trends Vs Future Market Outlook

Over the past few decades, the global packaging industry has been growing at a steady pace, which has been driven by the expansion of new markets, shift in choices of substrates, and changing ownership dynamics. There has been increased use of plastics such as high density polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and many more, in the packaging industry to replace other substrates and accommodate consumer demand for convenience.

This growth will continue in the decade ahead, but demand pressures and more disruptive changes are to be expected. However, by understanding the nature of the product and breadth of its use, market players are channeling their investments toward the launch of new products and diversification of their product portfolios for accommodating a wide range of applications. Overall, the anti-block additive market is slated to expand at a CAGR of around 5% from 2021 to 2031.

What is the Commercial Potential of Anti-block Additives?

Anti-block additives are added to plastics to avoid undesired adhesion, and thus, decrease the blocking force between two film layers throughout the unwinding process. This makes the manufacturing process easy during production as well as during later usage of the product.

These materials are added to polymers with a proportion of 1,000 - 6,000 ppm during the extrusion phase to avoid the adhesion of two layers and blocking. The dosage of anti-block varies according to the additive used, film grade, extrusion conditions, and film thickness. These several beneficial characteristics of anti-block additive materials are augmenting their demand on a commercial scale.

What is the Regulatory Impact on Global Sales on Anti-block Additives?

Over the last decade, regulatory authorities and organizations have framed stringent policies that govern the supply and use of plastics, especially 'single-use plastic products'. These products are used only once before the product is disposed, and are increasingly regulated by Governments concerned about social, environmental, health, and other impacts of plastic pollution and waste. HDPE, LDPE, and PVC are single-use plastic products that are being returned to manufacturers to be reused.

Due to environmental concerns, the use of plastic films is limited in various countries under government regulations. Thus, manufacturers are taking steps to produce environmentally friendly, biodegradable polymers. Governments are likely to mandate the use of biodegradable polymers made from PBSA and PCL in the near future. A few governments have prohibited the use of plastics, thus ensuring the usage of biodegradable polymer by producers.
