Elastic Ceresana Examines

To make the latest study of Ceresana research to plastics, paints and coatings, rubber and adhesives soft, elastic and thus only useful, often colorless liquids are mixed to them. Plasticizers are among the top-selling chemicals at all, explains Oliver Kutsch, Managing Director of Ceresana research: global demand will rise to over 7.6 million tons per year by 2018. The market research Institute published just a new study to this indispensable auxiliary materials. Put in emerging markets while the plasticizers consumption in North America and Western Europe will develop just below average in the foreseeable Ceresana expects gains of more than 4 percent per year in countries such as India, Russia and Brazil. The Pacific of Asia region the largest sales market for plasticizers, which China occupies the dominant position with a share of about two thirds is in already. PVC must be not brittle floor coverings, are the most important areas of application for plasticizers Profiles, cable and foils of plastics, in which more than half of the total consumption is spent. The reason for this is that certain types of PVC to up to 40 per cent consist of plasticizers.

Even more than the plastic sector, the markets however grow adhesives, inks and rubber. In 2010, the plasticizer market was eco-friendly alternatives is still dominated by phthalate products. With nearly 54 percent of Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalat (DEHP) it took an outstanding position. Will be replaced in the next few years but increasingly DEHP: statutory provisions and increasing environmental awareness force increasingly use phthalate free plasticizer, as on the basis of vegetable oils. In North America, for example, alternative products already achieved a share of 30 percent last year. Comprehensive market analysis the practice-oriented study of Ceresana research gives a concise overview of the different types of plasticisers. Is discussed in the report of the plasticizer market: consumption per product type, sales and prices explains. Especially the 18 countries with the biggest demand market data are analyzed.

The report examined individually also the main fields of use. The useful directory of manufacturers in the second volume contains 213 profiles of the world’s most important producers of plasticizers. Study available in English or German forecasts up to the year 2018 market opportunities and risks: de /… About Ceresana research Ceresana research is one of the world’s leading market research institutes for the industry.
