Dec 2020. Plastics additives are essential for the proper functioning and continuity of plastic articles. These plastic articles are used in the automotive, aviation, and railroad industries, construction, electrical/electronics industry, appliances, packaging materials, communications technology, and healthcare/medical applications, among others. 

Eight functional classes of specialty plastics additives are described in this IHS Markit report: antioxidants, antistatic agents, chemical blowing agents, flame retardants, heat stabilizers, impact modifiers, light stabilizers, and lubricants/slip additives. (This definition excludes an important additive group, plasticizers. However, these additives can be classified as commodities.) Although the growth in plastics additives consumption parallels consumption growth in plastic resins, some plastics additives consumption rates are growing more rapidly than others. Demand for plastics additives is strongly dependent on production and consumption of plastics, in general, but is also influenced by demand from plastics end-use consumer segments and changes in government regulations.
