Impact Modifier Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Impact Modifiers demand stood at 1.74 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 2.85 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.50% until 2030. Impact Modifiers are additives that are used to improve the toughness of a variety of plastic resins. These additives enhance the properties of the material such as impact resistance, modulus, viscosity, and good retention of heat distortion temperature. Unmodified Polymers such as Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polystyrene (PS), Polyamide, etc. are brittle or ductile at ambient temperature. Impact polymers are elastomeric in nature and have a lower modulus than host polymers. Based on grade (host polymer), the market is segmented into Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), Polyolefins, Polyester, Polyamide, others. PVC segments hold the major market by host for the global impact modifier market due to the wide applicability of PVC in a wide range of applications. 
By Type, the market is segmented into Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Acrylic, Processing aid, Ethylene Propylene Diene Rubber (EPDM/EPR), others. Higher heat resistance properties and various applications in Wire and Cable Jacketing, Roofing Membranes, Geo Membranes, Automotive, Industrial Hosing, etc is making the CPE dominant segment by Type. Replacement of engineering plastics with engineering plastics and increasing urbanization and construction activities are fueling the growth of impact modifiers during the forecast period. Besides, advancements in technology for creating sustainable bioplastic packaging and growing demand from the PVC segment are likely to positively influence the impact modifier market. 
The COVID-19 pandemic affected the impact modifiers market due to disrupted supply chain and lack of availability of raw materials and halt on production facilities.
Region-Wise, Asia-Pacific is the leading segment for the global impact modifier market. With the majority of the engineering plastics and its downstream manufacturers located in the country, China constitutes around one-third of Global Demand. With the majority of Automotive suppliers located in the region, Europe constitutes the second-largest share in Global Impact Modifier Market. End-use wise, packaging is the highest consuming end-use and is set to propel the demand for impact modifiers for the forecasting period. Increasing usage in other end uses such as Construction, Consumer Goods, Packaging, others will further propel the demand.
Some of the major key players operating in the Global Impact Modifiers market are Kaneka, Dow Chemicals, Weifang Yaxing Chemical, Arkema, LG Chemicals, Formosa Plastics, Mitsubishi Rayon, Wanda Chemical Group, Zibo Huaxing Additives, Jiangsu Tianteng Chemical industry Co, etc.
