Non-PVC Plasticizers are additives incorporated in a material (usually a plastic or an elastomer) to increase its workability, flexibility or dispensability. Non-PVC Plasticizers are colorless and odorless in nature. In the commercial marketplace, Non-PVC Plasticizers are utilized to reduce melt viscosity, lower the temperature of a second-order transition and lower elastic modulus of the final product.
On the basis of properties, Non-PVC Plasticizers are classified into product types, such as phthalate plasticizers, trimellitates, terephthalate, aliphatic, cyclohexanoate and benzoates.
In general, 90% plasticizers are used for PVC and rest 10% plasticizers are used for non-PVC applications. Non-PVC Plasticizers find usage in numerous end-use applications, such as paints & coatings, rubber products, adhesives & sealants, personal care products, medical products and household products.
The incremental $ opportunity created by the global Non-PVC Plasticizers market during the forecast period is nearly US$ 414.3 Mn. The Non-PVC Plasticizers market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period.
Migration Effect of Non-PVC Plasticizers
According to a recent research study by Teknor Apex (manufacturer of Non-PVC Plasticizers), PVC components have better flexibility and durability properties. However, they leave behind toxic gases during degradation and due to this, producers of PVC components are looking for alternatives (non-PVC).
Moreover, in PVC, certain plasticizers can lead to softening and cracking in medical products. Owing to this, medical device manufacturers are looking for better Non-PVC Plasticizers.
These above-said factor will positively affect the global Non-PVC Plasticizers market in future.
