The Global Antiblock Additives Market is projected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.20%  during a forecast period. During the manufacturing of polyolefins and other plastic films, it is difficult to separate the layers as they have a tendency to adhere together. This adhesion between film layers, called blocking, is an inherent property of some polymers.

Antiblock Additives Market

Antiblocking additives can be added to plastic to minimize this adhesion and lower the blocking force between layers. The greater the concentration of antiblocks present, the rougher the film surface produced. However, it is important that the particles are well dispersed, as agglomerates reduce the performance of antiblocking. Conversely, the coarser the particles, the further the two film layers are. Antiblock additives are generally added in a lower concentration of 1000 ppm to 6000 ppm, but the concentration varies as the thickness and grade of films vary and added during the extrusion process.

Global Antiblock Additives Market

The antiblock additives market is dynamic with increasing demand for various product types. Based on product type, antiblock additives market has been segmented into organic and inorganic. Out of the two, inorganic additives are expected to lead the demand mainly due to their easy availability and cost-effectiveness.

Based on polymer type, the antiblock additives market has been segmented into LLDPE, LDPE, BOPP, PVC, HDPE, and others. The LLDPE segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. LLDPE is widely preferred by manufacturers of plastic films and sheets due to its low cost, high tensile strength, and ease of use in various applications.

Based on application, the packaging segment, more specifically, the food packaging industry is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing consumer awareness for convenience and ready-to-eat packaged food. The increasing disposable income of people and their high spending power has led to high demand for packaged food. The plastics industry is rapidly growing due to the use of plastics in a variety of applications. Moreover, increasing consumer awareness to develop new age and environment-friendly products have led to the adoption of new technologies in the packaging industry. The use of non-thermal processing and light protective packaging, nanocomposites as packaging fillers, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), active packaging technologies such as oxygen scavengers, ethanol emitters, moisture absorbers, flavor releasing/absorbing systems, time-temperature indicators, and multi-layer films are some of the latest technologies being used in the packaging industry.

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing antiblock additives market during the forecast period due to the growing use of antiblock additives in the packaging application in countries such as India, Japan, and South Korea. Moreover, improving the economic condition and infrastructural developments due to urbanization and industrialization are primarily responsible for the high demand for antiblock additives. In addition, the increasing focus on improving agricultural output in these regions has led to the use of antiblock additives.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • High demand from the packaging industry
  • Advancements in technologies leading to the production of environment-friendly plastics
  • Easy availability and cost-effectiveness of inorganic additives
  • Growing demand from the Asia Pacific

Key Developments:

  • In January 2017, Evonik Industries AG (Germany) acquired the specialty additives business of Air Products and Chemicals Inc. (US) for USD 3.8 billion. The acquisition will improve Evonik’s position in the global specialty additives market.
  • In April 2017, Croda International Plc. (UK) announced the expansion of its Chocques manufacturing facility in northern France with an investment of USD 19.98 million.
