Opportunities: Cost effectiveness and commercialization of plastic

The plastic because of their reusable property is considered to be cost effective. The used plastics are recycled and reiterated to form new formulations for different applications. Major companies have quoted that plastic additives are way more cost effective when compared with their other alternative materials.The major players in the industry are rigorously working on the research and development of less toxic or non-toxic plastic products. The government is starting to commercialize the     plastic products which promotes their applications in different areas such as healthcare, automobile, and construction

Packaging  is the largest application for plastic additives market during the forecast period

The major factor that aids the growth of the packaging industry is rapid urbanization, changing consumer lifestyle, economic trends, and rising health awareness among different classes of consumers and development in packaging material and technology. The various properties of plastics, such as durability, low cost, resistance to corrosion and water & chemicals, and low thermal conductivity make them suitable for use in various applications. Rise in the use of plastics in heavy and light packing drives the demand for plastic additives. The demand for plasticizers, flame retardants, and stabilizers is growing with the increasing demand for plastics in packaging.
