Increasing Demand for High Performance Plastic across Various Industries to Push Market Growth

Phenolic antioxidants are widely utilized as an additive during the production of plastics and rubber. Owing to its exceptional properties, plastic is getting adopted at an exponential rate in numerous industries. To provide better efficacy & workability in harsh conditions, such as high temperature & high pressure conditions, plastic additives are used as they slow down or minimize the degradation of plastic products.

Phenolic antioxidants are used as antioxidant additives in polymer processing as phenolic antioxidants restrict & inhibit the oxidation of plastic products in harsh environments. Furthermore, increasing adoption of plastic across automotive industry to reduce overall weight will also create strong demand for plastic additives in near future. This, in turn, will drive the demand for phenolic antioxidants over the forecast period.
