This Eco Friendly Plasticizers market study offers a comprehensive analysis of the business models, key strategies, and respective market shares of some of the most prominent players in this landscape. Along with an in-depth commentary on the key influencing factors, market statistics in terms of revenues, segment-wise data, region-wise data, and country-wise data are offered in the full study. This study is one of the most comprehensive documentation that captures all the facets of the evolving Eco Friendly Plasticizers market.
In early times, dioctyl phthalate (DOP) was used as an ingredient in the manufacturing of plasticizers. Owing to the rising concerns over these plasticizers due to their potential migration out of PVC compounds and release into the human body or environment, manufacturers moved towards environment-friendly plasticizers, which use ingredients such as di-isononyl phthalate (DINP), dipropyl heptyl phthalate (DPHP), and dioctyl phthalate (DOP). The major trend is to shift toward less migratory phthalates and high molecular weight.
Eco-friendly plasticizers are organic esters, which can be compounded into polymers to improve flexibility and toughness of the end product using internal modification of polymer morphology, and also to facilitate processing. They are typically inactive materials with high boiling points and low vapour pressure. Commercially, the flexible polyvinylchloride (PVC) application accounts for more than 3/4th of plasticizer consumption.

The global eco-friendly plasticizers market can be segmented on the basis of raw materials and applications.
Global Eco-friendly Plasticizers Market: Dynamics
Rising need for residential buildings to provide accommodation for ever increasing population is a matter of concern for any country’s construction industry. Amidst the escalating demand for plasticizers, there’s an increasing awareness towards the utilization of eco-friendly plasticizers which could eliminate the risk of harmful chemicals. Eco-friendly plasticizers are utilized in the construction sector to improve the fluidity and plasticity of concrete. Moreover, these plasticizers are utilized to reduce water content from slump. The aforementioned reasons are expected to propel the demand for eco-friendly plasticizers and thus, in turn drive the global eco-friendly plasticizers market.
On the other hand, the production cost of eco-friendly plasticizers is high as compared to that of traditionally used plasticizers, owing to increase in the scarcity of feedstock isononanol (INA), which is used in the manufacturing of di-isononyl phthalate (DINP). This is one of the major challenges faced by the manufacturers of eco-friendly plasticizers and thus, is restricting growth of the global eco-friendly plasticizers market.
Owing to the tough environmental requirements for plasticizers and their wide usage in the rubber manufacturing industry, eco-friendly plasticizers can be used in tyre blends that are obtained by propane deasphalting of solvent extracts.
A key trend identified in the global eco-friendly plasticizers market is the inclination of manufacturers towards eco-friendly plasticizers in the place of traditional plasticizers. Owing to the reason that the utilization of phthalate based plasticizers is either restricted or banned in some applications.
