Wacker Chemie (Germany) has gained a strong foothold in the low profile additives market. The company has a strong product portfolio of low profile additives which find application in sheet molding compounds, bulk molding compounds, resin transfer molding, hand lay-up, and pultrusion, among others. The aforementioned compounds or composites are then further used in end-use industries such as power generation, automotive, transportation, industrial, and electrical & electronics. The company operates through 23 production sites and has extensive R&D infrastructure, helping the company attain economies of scale. It mainly focuses on innovation, development of individual customer solutions, and consistent customer and service orientation to cater to consumer demand and grow in the market. For example, Wacker opened a technical center for the construction, textile, and consumer care applications in Istanbul. The center enabled the testing of tile adhesive and external thermal insulation composite systems that are the two key applications of Vinnapas. The company is a major player owing to its market pull and technology push strategies.
LyondellBasell Industries (Netherlands) is another major player operating in the market. The company has a strong global presence and offers a wide range of low profile additives for various composite applications such as SMC/BMC, RTM, and pultrusion. The company is focusing on the inorganic growth strategy of merger & acquisition for expanding its reach and product portfolio and hence widening its presence in various end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and construction and increasing its revenue. In August 2018, LyondellBasell acquired A. Schulman, Inc. (US), a global supplier of composites, high-performance plastic compounds, and powders, to boost its product line, which, in turn, increases its presence in the low profile additives market.
