Anti-blocking additives market was valued at USD 980.6 billion by 2019, growing with 5.9% CAGR during the forecast period, 2020-2026
Anti-blocking additives are extensions that prevent the lid and plastic film from sticking together. It improves lifecycle, processing, and performance. Anti-blocking additives are used in the production of polyolefin films. This substance is mixed in the polymer in 1,000 ppm to 6,000 ppm concentration to reduce layers adhesion. The doses are added by considering the thickness, extrusion, and film grade. This tends to reduce the coefficient of friction between the films, thus preventing them from sticking together. This makes the whole production process and later product usage easy. Anti-Blocking additives can be easily used in applications that require a high-definition film with a non-stick surface. This substance is widely employed in the packaging, food, and pharmaceutical industry.
Coating and film manufacturers always face the sticking problem as the two film layers stick with each other. This issue frequently happens with polypropylene and polyethylene films. To overcome such a problem, additives are used which introduce bumps, thus increasing the distance between two films, which reduces sticking. However, the higher dose of anti-blocking additives can result in the loss of plastic properties. Thus, vendors are looking for better alternatives that can cater to high resistance to blocking. This aspect can hamper the market during the forecast period.
Depending upon the product types, the industry is bifurcated into organic and inorganic. Among which, the inorganic segment is anticipated to win the race during the forecast period because of its easy availability and cost-effective nature, unlike the organic segment. With the expansion of the pharmaceutical and agriculture industry, this segment is likely to pick the speed in future.
In terms of the type of polymer films, the anti-blocking supplements is classified into; Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Linear Low-density Polyethylene (LLDPE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). The segment of LLDPE is expected to consume significant volumes for the next five years, and this is because of its low tensile strength, cost-effectiveness, and easy usage in plastic films and sheet industry.
Considering the applications, the food packaging sector is projected to capture significant revenue share. The hike in disposable income and fueling spending capability has increased the demand for packed food items. The change in lifestyle will also drive the market, as consumers are getting more attracted towards packed food because of lack of time. Also, the property of additives to separate Polyolefin and plastic films has made them more useful in the packaging industry.
The growing demands for films in the packaging and non-packaging applications are stimulating the market worldwide. The demand for paper and film used in North America packaging applications is increasing due to strong production in the region. The paper and film production in North America is picking up the pace because of its pivotal role in packaging activities. However, the production is moving to low-cost manufacturing sites like China and India. This may increase demand for panels and packaging films in the Asia-Pacific region, which may drive the market. Demand for additives in Africa, the Middle East, and South America is lower than in other regions. However, demand is expected to grow moderately in the region.
Key Vendor Takeaway
Some of the major players working in the market are Special Minerals Inc., Imerys SA, Crode International, Arkima Honeywell, WR Grace, Fine Organics, AA Shulman Ltd, Evonik Industries, and Hoffmann Mineral GmbH.
Companies are focusing on aggressive methodologies for market expansion. They are also trying to move their production facilities to Asia Pacific region because of cheap labor, land availability, and government subsidies. These players have been prioritizing a strategy of mergers and acquisitions to gain a strong foothold and expand their industry.
