Phenolic Antioxidants Market: Dynamics
Phenolic antioxidants are primarily used as an additive in the production of rubber and plastic composites. Plastic based products are increasingly gaining traction in the automotive industry and other industrial applications owing to their light weight, superior properties and lower cost as compared to other composite materials. In the automotive industry, plastic is being used for weight reduction, improving vehicle performance and to meet stringent emissive standards. Hence, growing demand for plastic will drive the demand for different additives, such as phenolic antioxidants. Another key factor which is expected to significantly drive the growth of the global phenolic antioxidants market is high demand from the fuel & lubricant segment. High growth in industries, such as infrastructure, oil & gas and automotive mining & metallurgy, to name a few, will increase the demand for specialized lubricants in the market, which in turn, will fuel the demand for phenolic antioxidants in the long-term scenario.
Phenolic Antioxidants Market: Segmentation Overview
- On the basis of type, the multi-functional segment, with its exceptional properties and high stability, is the most preferred type in the phenolic antioxidants market and is expected to remain in the high value-high growth quadrant during the forecast period. Mono-functional phenols are gaining substantial traction in the phenolic antioxidants market owing to high demand from plastic and rubber processing applications
- Among source type segments, the synthetic segment is estimated to remain dominant in the global phenolic antioxidants market. However, the natural phenolic antioxidants segment is pegged to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period owing to high demand from food & feed additive applications
- By application, the plastic and rubber processing segment accounts for a significant share in the global phenolic antioxidants market. With robust growth in demand for plastic and rubber from numerous applications in different end-use industries, the demand for phenolic antioxidants is also expected to increase. Among other applications, food & feed additive & pharmaceutical and personal care segments account for relatively low demand
