Global Plastisol Market- Overview

Plastisol is a liquid plasticizer that contains a suspension of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or any other polymer particles. It's a synthetic polymer, i.e., a man-made chemical.Plastisol exists in liquid form and can therefore easily be molded into any shape. Produced from salt and ethylene, Plastisol uses less energy and produces fewer emissions than other plastics. Additionally, they are considered incredibly versatile in comparison to other plastics and can be made thin, rigid, and of all colors.

Global Plastisol Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Construction Activities

The increasing construction activities, especially in the emerging economies, is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global plastisol market. Governments of different countries are extending funding for commercial and residential building projects, as well as supporting and encouraging economic growth in countries. Plastisols would therefore probably face increased demand due to their wide use in coating, sealing, and adhesive applications. The construction industry uses plastisols because they are water-resistant, impact-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and have high dielectric strength. These properties make plastisols popular in the construction industry.

Growing Application ofPlastisols In the Automobile Industry

Plastisol plays many roles in the automobile industry, from manufacturing to providing convenience and comfort to consumers. Plastisol provides a form of electrical component protection for workers, owners, and mechanics. Furthermore, it reduces friction and wears on connectors and wiring. In terms of coating purposes, this material is very popular as it offers a sleek, soft appearance and is excellent for enhancing vibration damping.Additionally, plastisols provide chemical and corrosion resistance, as well as water and electricity resistance.  The automobile industry is gaining significant traction, especially in Germany, Japan, and South Korea. Therefore, the demand for plastisols is also estimated to flourish at a high rate in the foreseeable future.

Restraints

Adverse Effects of The Plastisol Environment

Plastisol is a plastic-based ink,therefore it is bound to have adverse environmental effects. In addition, as countries and companies move towards eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives, the global plastisol market is projected to suffer huge losses in the years to come. Plastisol production releases highly toxic chemicals, such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and dioxin. Therefore, countries with high air pollution would like to take steps to minimize toxins released into the environment, which might negatively impact the global plastisol market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Plastisol Market

The COVID-19-pandemic proved to be disastrous for the global plastisol market. It is due to the obstruction in manufacturing and production activities that prevented the end-user industry from purchasing plastisols. As a result of the nationwide lockdowns imposed by different countries to check the spread of the deadly coronavirus, several industries, including construction, textiles, transportation, and others, had their operations restricted, which in turn affected the growth of the global plastisol market. Furthermore, the growing awareness towards sustainability after the pandemic outbreak and the harmful effects of the use of plastics and chemicals are likely to negatively impact the global plastisol market in the upcoming years.

Global Plastisol Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global plastisol market is segmented into coatings, moldings, screen printing, and adhesives & sealants. The coatings segment accounts for the largest market share as it offers soft and matte textures. Plastisols are widely used for protecting metal substrates like iron and aluminum because they protect metals from corrosion and abrasion. Plastisol coatings are generally used in the construction industry for coating clad walls and roofs on industrial buildings, warehouses, and retail units, which drives its market demand.

Global Plastisol Market - By End User

Based on end-users, the global plastisol market is segmented into construction, transportation, defense, textiles, metal finishing, and others. Among these segments, the textile industry currently holds the largest market share and is also estimated to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Plasticizers are increasingly used in the textile industry to treat nonwoven, knitted, and woven textiles. Theos chemical is also used as inks and dyes. Plastisols also offer exceptional color transparency, a high output rate, and cost-effectiveness, making them appealing to textile manufacturers.

Global Plastisol Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global plastisol market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Among all regions, Asia-Pacific leads due to rapid industrialization and thriving manufacturing and production facilities in countries like India, China, and Japan due to the availability of cheap labor.Another factor driving the growth of the plastisol market is the increasing use of plastisols in construction activities, such as coating, sealing, and adhesive applications, as a result of the infrastructural development in emerging economies.
