Top 7 Leading Companies Accelerating the Development of the Global Plasticisers Market

Top Plasticisers Companies


BASF SE, Arkema Group, Evonik Industries AG, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, LG Chem, and Ineos AG, among others, are the significant players in the global market for plasticisers.


As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the global plasticisers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% in the forecast period of 2022-2027, owing to the rise in bio-based plasticisers.


Plasticisers are chemicals added to another material, such as plastic, to make it more pliable, resilient, and easy to work. They are available in different types and are commercially used. Also, bio-based plasticisers may enrich clays, concrete, and other similar goods. Bio-based plasticisers have fuelled the development of the plasticisers market. Vegetable raw resources are utilised to create a bio-based alternative for petroleum-based plasticisers.


The need for non-phthalate-based plasticisers from end-users is further bolstering the growth of the industry. Due to the increasing public knowledge about the toxic effects of plasticisers, producers have created eco-friendly bio-based plasticisers to replace the harmful ones. They are used in both food packaging and medicinal product packaging. Thus, bio-based plasticisers are anticipated to spur the development of plasticisers in the long term.


In May 2021, Arkema, with the planned acquisition of Agiplast, a market leader in the regeneration of high-performance polymers, particularly speciality polyamides and fluoropolymers, will provide a comprehensive material circularity service to customers, thus meeting the growing market expectations. This initiative, which helps the polymer industry's sustainable development, is ideally aligned with Arkema's sustainable growth strategy. These investments are contributing to the development of plasticisers market.


North America is a significant market for plasticisers on a global scale. This can be ascribed to the product's expanding use in emerging sectors like packaging, healthcare, and the chemical industry. Since the manufacturing and healthcare sectors are both experiencing steady expansion in Europe, the region has long been a market for plasticisers. Further, the Asia Pacific region is also thriving due to shifting lifestyles, rising disposable incomes, and rapid urbanisation.
