Heat Stabilizers: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Heat stabilizers are primarily used in the plastics industry to prevent degradation on exposure to heat, specifically in PVC products such as pipes. Demand for heat stabilizers is significantly influenced by developments in end-use markets such as plastics, especially PVC. In the coming years, rising demand from construction and consumer products markets, which are major consumers of PVC, is expected to stimulate demand for heat stabilizers, globally. Growth will be driven by the development and launch of new products that replace traditional lead and cadmium-based stabilizers, which are currently attracting a lot of criticism from environmental activists. Adoption of regulations to reduce phenol and VOC content in heat stabilizers in several developed countries are driving manufacturers to develop alternate products. The substitution of lead-based stabilizers, in particular, has been proceeding rapidly in Western Europe. In China, demand for environment-friendly heat stabilizers is increasing. The shift towards eco-friendly materials will thus prove beneficial for alternatives such as heat stabilizers based on mixed metals, tin, and other organic and rare earth, materials.
As stated by the new market research report on Heat Stabilizers, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing regional market worldwide. Developing markets of China and India, in particular, are driving growth in demand for heat stabilizers. With China’s emergence as the world’s leading producer and importer of primary plastics, domestic market for heat stabilizers is huge with massive untapped opportunities for growth. Western Europe and North America constitute other significant markets for heat stabilizers.
Mixed Metal Stabilizers represents the largest and the fastest growing segment in the global heat stabilizers market with a CAGR of 12% over the review period. In the coming years, mixed metal stabilizers and calcium organic stabilizers are forecast to garner a significant share of overall demand, buoyed by increasing concerns over environmental safety and voluntary efforts taken by producers to reduce the impact on the environment. The shift towards lead-free stabilizing systems will be fostered by the launch of innovative stabilizers that do not require any changes to processing equipment such as extrusion tools and screws. Rising concern over the harmful effects of lead usage to the environment and human health is causing a continuous decline in demand for Lead-based stabilizers across the world. Government interventions are expected to accelerate the phase out of lead based stabilizers.
