Specialty plasticizers add flexibility, as well as other high performance attributes such as volatility resistance, low-temperature resistance, and electrical conductivity. Commonly used in the production of PVC films, electrical wiring, flooring, roofing, and wall coverings, specialty plasticizers are expected to witness consistent demand from the construction sector. The construction sector is expanding at a swift pace due to urbanization and the increasing demand for residential and commercial buildings. Moreover, added to concrete, plasticizers can strengthen the material. PVC is the third most widely used plastic polymer and has a vast number of applications in construction activities, pipes, sins, clothing, healthcare, and a number of others. As such, the high demand for PVC is likely to influence increased demand for specialty plasticizers.
Notably, the market is restrained by stringent regulations in developed economies. Some specialty plasticizers have been banned in consumer goods due to their toxic effect on the health.
