Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102368 | Status : Ongoing



Plastics tend to change over time due to exposure to heat, radiation, or a corrosive environment. The changes occur as a result of oxidative degradation and can severely affect the properties and service life of the polymers. To prevent the degradation of plastics, antioxidants are added. Antioxidants obstruct autoxidation of plastics with atmospheric oxygen. Some polymers undergo oxidation at room temperature, while others are at the risk of thermal oxidation while processing. The plastics are molded and cast at high temperatures, and under those conditions, oxidation occurs at a rapid pace. Antioxidants are of prime importance as they help in the stabilization of plastics during the processing stage, and to increase the service life.

Key Market Driver -

Rising demand for plastic to replace conventional materials

Key Market Restraint -

Health effects of plastic antioxidants
