    What is a polymer processing aid?

    Polymer Processing Aid (PPA) is mainly used in improving melt processability or improving the handling of polymers with high-molecular-weight. They are used in the production and processing of different polymers. PPA can be beneficial in a number of ways such as reducing die build-up, offering thermal stability, lowering melt viscosity, reducing gel formation, reducing interfacial instability, and usage in high viscosity.

    Market Drivers

    The demand for plastics has incessantly been increasing for a wide range of applications by replacing metals in some cases. In industries, such as automotive, the ineluctable need to attain fuel efficiency drives the usage of lightweight materials such as composites and plastics. In the consumer goods and packaging industries, polymers remain the materials of choice.

    Steady demand from the relatively unstirred packaging and consumer goods industries proved to be the boat that sailed PPA demand through the pandemic’s waves. A sudden spike in demand for PP and PE masks, medical gowns, and other medical supplies proved to be another factor adding momentum to the market in 2020.

    Segment Analysis

    Polymer Trends

    We have segmented the market as polyethylene, polypropylene, and others. The polyethylene segment is further sub-segmented into HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE. Polyethylene is estimated to dominate the market in the coming five years, in terms of both value and volume. The growth is attributed to the rising employment of HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE in the consumer goods, building & construction, and automotive industries. 

    The polypropylene segment is projected to depict the highest growth during the forecast period, on account of the escalating demand from the packaging and healthcare industries.

    Application Trends

    The market is segmented as blown film & cast film, extrusion & molding, pipes & tubes, fibers & raffia, wires & cables, and others. The blown film & cast film segment is estimated to continue holding the throne during the forecast period.

    The growth is triggered by the rising use of polymer processing aid to manufacturing blown films & cast films to substantiate the mounting demand for quality films especially in China, Japan, India, and South Korea.

    Regional Insights

    Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market at a CAGR of 5.3% in the coming five years, driven by the escalating per capita use of plastics. China and India are likely to remain the thrust-bearers of the region. China has been quite resilient in exerting efforts to acquire PP self-sufficiency and to reduce dependency on PE imports, in an attempt to establish and integrate, indigenous polymer production value chain.

    North America and Europe are also expected to offer sizeable growth opportunities during the forecast period.
