August 20, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 20, 2018--The “Global Organic Peroxide Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The organic peroxide market is expected to register a moderate CAGR of 4.2% during the forecasted period, 2018-2023. The market is driven by many factors, such as increasing demand from polymer industry, however, growing regulations on the product regarding its usage in food applications are restraining the market during the forecasted period.

Increasing Demand from the Polymer Industry

Organic Peroxides are used in polymer industries as a source of free radicals for polymerization of unsaturated monomers, which are used to produce various polymers, such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyacrylate, polystyrene (EPS, GPPS, HIPS, SAN), and polybutadiene. Growing plastic applications in various end-users, like healthcare, biotechnology, and automotive industry, due to their chemical properties are expected to drive the market during the forecasted period.

Polyurethane - The Fastest Growing Application

Based on type, diacyl peroxides has the largest share and is expected to grow at a healthy rate. Diacyl peroxides find major applications as a free radical initiator during the polymerization of PVC’s, vinyl monomer polymerization, curing agent for thermoset resins, and as crosslinking of thermoplastics & elastomers. Growing demand from emerging countries of Asia Pacific and South America is expected to drive the market during the forecasted period.

Notable Development

AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals invested more than EURO 12 million in order to expand the production capacity, along with its up gradation of its organic peroxides facility in Los Reyes, Mexico. The project involves the construction of a new facility to manufacture Perkadox CH-50 organic peroxides.
