The global plastic antioxidants market size is estimated to be USD 2.0 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. Factors such as plastics replacing conventional materials, increasing demand in medical industry, and rapid urbanization in developing countries will drive the plastic antioxidants market. The major restraint for the market will be adverse effect on health from synthetic plastics antioxidants. However, the untapped demand in the agricultural sector of developing countries will act as an opportunity for the market.
Phosphites & phosphonites are phosphorus-based secondary antioxidants. Secondary antioxidants are known as hydroperoxide decomposers as they react with hydroperoxides to produce non-radical products. They are used in combination with primary antioxidants. Phosphites & phosphonites are among the most effective stabilizers, as they protect both primary antioxidants and the polymers during processing. China and Japan house major players in electronics, automotive, and consumer goods. These industries generate high demand for plastics, and in turn, high demand for plastic antioxidants.

PP is a thermoplastic polymer with the presence of tertiary carbon atoms. The presence of tertiary carbon atoms makes it susceptible to oxidation and thermal degradation at high temperatures. Polypropylene is processed at temperatures between 428°F and 536°F, and under these conditions, it degrades to form low molecular weight products. Thus, antioxidants are added to PP to stabilize it. Antioxidants are added during the manufacturing process and palletizing.

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.
