The global plasticizer market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% from 2018 to 2025. Plasticizer with low molecular weight includes DEHP, BBP, and DBP, whereas, plasticizer with high molecular weight such as DINP & DIDP. The mixture of plasticizer sub segments with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) such as PVC+DINP, and DIDP are highly demanded in global plasticizer market as they are safe, flexible, durable, cost effective, and recyclable.
China is the largest plasticizer market in the world, accounting for nearly 42% of global plasticizer consumption in 2017. It also has the highest forecast consumption growth due to increased plasticizer consumption in goods, for both domestic and export markets.
Asia-Pacific dominates the plasticizer market, in terms of volume during forecasted period. This is caused due to improved economic condition, increased infrastructural development, large demand of PVC products from different end user industries such as healthcare, construction and housing, automotive, electric and electronics, and medical.
