The plastic antioxidants market is projected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.3% from USD 2.0 billion in 2020. Antioxidants are stabilizing agents that inhibit the process of oxidation by reacting and decomposing the reactive species. They protect plastics and other materials against thermally induced oxidation. Antioxidants that are used in plastics include primary antioxidants and secondary antioxidants. Different types of antioxidants provide different levels of reactivity as a function of temperature and also react and decompose the different radical intermediates in the oxidation process, thereby providing thermal stability to plastics.

Plastics are used in mulch films, greenhouse film covers, shades, netting, and silage strap wrap in the agricultural sector. The plastics used in the agriculture sector provide high light transmission to promote the growth of plants. Agricultural plastics need to be able to withstand high solar radiation and mechanical stress. Therefore, antioxidants are used to provide processing and thermal stability and discoloration resistance to agricultural plastics. Countries such as India have not explored the benefits of plastics in the agricultural industry. According to the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry, in 2013, the global average demand for plastics in the agricultural industry was 8%, and in India, it was 2%. Thus, there is a strong growth opportunity for stakeholders in the plastic antioxidants market in India.
Players in the plastic antioxidants market are mainly concentrating on new product launches, merger & acquisition, and expansions to meet the growing demand for plastic antioxidants for various applications. New product launches help companies to strengthen their product portfolio and meet the specific demands of customers.
The growth of the plastic antioxidants market has been largely influenced by new product launches that were undertaken between 2016 and 2020. Companies such as BASF and Sumitomo Chemical have adopted new product launches to enhance their market position.
BASF (Germany) is one of the major players in the plastic antioxidants market. In order to expand its business, the company is focusing on enhancing its market reach by opening plants to increase the capacity. For instance, in December 2019, BASF (Germany) opened the second phase of the new antioxidant manufacturing plant in Shanghai, China, to support the fast-growing antioxidants market in the country. Similarly, Sumitomo Chemical expanded its Polypropylene Compounds Business with the acquisition of a Turkish compounder, Emas Plastik A.S., and its affiliated companies (Emas Group). This would encourage the growth of the antioxidant business.
The companies also adopted new product launch as a strategy to expand their product portfolio and market presence. For instance, in July 2019, SK Capital launched a new antioxidant product called ULTRANOX 626 for use in PP homopolymers and copolymers. In November 2018, launched a new antioxidant, SONGNOX 5057, for polyols and polyurethanes applications.
In October 2018, SK Capital announced its agreement to acquire the SI group. Through this acquisition, the company is projected to unlock the growth in earnings from both commercial and cost synergies. In May 2017, Clariant undertook mergers with Huntsman Corporation (US) to form HuntsmanClariant, in which Clariant holds a 52% share. The combination of strengths of both the companies created a leading global specialty chemical company, with an improved growth profile in highly attractive regions and end markets.
