Polypropylene to register the highest CAGR in the global polymer processing aid market between 2016 and 2021 

The global polymer processing aid market has been segmented on the basis of polymer type into polyethylene (LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE, and others), polypropylene, and others. The polypropylene segment of the global polymer processing aid market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021, in terms of value. This growth is mainly attributed to the rising demand for lightweight vehicles and increasing usage of polypropylene in the automotive sector. Moreover, expansion of the automotive industry in the Asia-Pacific region is further driving the demand for polypropylene. Polypropylene carrier resins are used in the production of additive masterbatch, owing to their high melting point, water resistance, low electrical conductivity, good chemical & fatigue resistance, good hinge property, and flexibility.

Blown film & cast film to be the fastest-growing application segment of the global polymer processing aid market  

The blown film & cast film segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021, in terms of value, due to the increasing demand for blown film & cast film from packaging and agriculture industries. In addition, the increasing usage of polymer processing aids to produce blown films & cast films to meet the rising demand for high-quality clean films in ChinaIndiaJapan, and South Korea is another significant factor propelling the growth of the Polymer Processing Aid Market in blown film & cast film application. Blown films are extremely durable and have high mechanical strength, whereas, cast films are soft and highly flexible. The use of PPA prevents materials from sticking to the surface of machineries, while processing of polymers into plastics. PPA also helps improve surface quality, eliminate melt fractures, maintain operational temperature, and reduce die deposits.
