Rise in Awareness about Improper Disposal of Plastics to Propel the Demand for Anti-block Additives Market

Transparency Market Research

Posted 22nd January 2019.

According to a new report published by Transparency Market Research, the anti-block additives market will record significant growth owing to the rise in awareness about improper disposal of plastics across the globe. The report titled, “Anti-block Additives Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 – 2026,” anticipates that the global market will grow remarkably during the forecast period.
Anti-block additives are substances that are added to plastic sheets and films to prevent them from sticking to each other. They improve the processing, life-cycle, and performance of the films. Anti-block additives are used in making polyolefin films. They tend to decrease the coefficient of friction between films and thus prevent them from adhering to each other. Anti-block additives can be of two types: organic (diatomaceous earth, talc, kaolin, mica, etc.) or inorganic (silicones, fatty acids, amides, etc.) depending on their composition. Anti-block additives are readily used in applications where high clarity films with non-adhesive surfaces are desired.
Based on type of polymer film, the anti-block additives market can be classified into high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP), and others. The BOPP films segment is expected to show the significant growth in terms of anti- block additives consumption. In terms of application, the anti-block additives market can be categorized into packaging and non-packaging. Based on end-user, the anti-block additives market can be segmented into agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and food industry. Agriculture is a dominant end-user industry segment of the anti-block additives market.
Diatomaceous earth and talc are the most commonly used additives. Among the types of additives, the organic additives segment accounts for a prominent market share compared to the inorganic additives segment. Inorganic additives are known to offer better anti-blocking properties compared to inorganic additives. Apart from better properties, inorganic additives such as diatomaceous earth and talc are easily available and are an economical option.
LDPE, HDPE, and polypropylene are the most widely used plastics. They are being increasingly recycled and reused due to rise in awareness about environmental issues caused by improper disposal of plastics. Their ability to be recycled is a primary driver of their increased global consumption. This is anticipated to propel the anti-block additives market in the coming years.
