REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

Every activity in modern life is influenced by plastics and many depend entirely on plastic products. All these plastic products are made from the essential polymer mixed with a complex blend of materials known collectively as additives. Without additives, plastics would not work, but with them plastics can be made safer, cleaner, tougher, and more colorful. Additives cost money, but by reducing production costs and making products last longer, they help in saving money and conserving the world’s precious raw material reserves. In fact, the world today would be a lot less safe, a lot more expensive, and a great deal duller without the additives that turn basic polymers into useful plastics. 

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

Additives are the ignored components of plastics. For instance, in discussions of the market success of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polypropylene (PP), the polymers get the most attention, and little credit is given to the plastics additives that enable these products to be as useful as they are. But when environmental and health concerns arise, plastics additives take center stage until the industry finds a way to either replace the troublesome additives with newer types of additives or to prove that the additives in question are essentially harmless. This report intends to bring out the usefulness of various varieties of plastics additives and the market share of each type of additive.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
 
For any company to succeed in a competitive market, opportunities must be identified from the viewpoint of the company’s strengths. For this, it is necessary to understand the size and growth rate of any opportunity and the competitive atmosphere in which the company exists. This report presents the ideal medium to understand the various exciting and growing opportunities in the field of plastics additives. This report focuses on the available opportunities in this vast area of the ever growing field of plastics additives and how to utilize these opportunities.
 
SCOPE OF REPORT
 
The report has been prepared in a simple format that can be easily understood with a number of tables and charts/figures. The report includes a detailed study of applications and global and regional markets for various types of the plastics additives to understand the dynamics of the plastics additives industry, which is based on the additives consumption. The reportalso studies the globalization and consolidation of the plastic processing industry so as to enable the additive manufacturers and suppliers to establish positions in all the major regions.
 
The report looks into the supply and pricing of raw materials and feedstock of various plastics additives, which has been fluctuating rapidly with the rapid run-up in prices of raw materials and energy. 
 
The report also looks into various aspects of the environmental/regulatory aspects of various plastics additives as these continue to provide opportunities as well as threats to additive suppliers. The report also delves into the supply chain shifts and value migration, which affects additives demand.
