Plastic Antioxidants Market Overview
The Plastic Antioxidants Market Size is expected to grow USD 5.57 billion at a CAGR of 6.50% during the forecast period. Antioxidants in plastics are used to protect materials from heat oxidation. The constituents in these inhibitors include phenolic or phosphite & phosphonite. They have high tensile strength, anti-aging properties, and impact resistance. These inhibitors are used to improve the equipment's durability and function. They are employed in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automobile, coil, petrochemicals, and others, because of these features.
Plastic antioxidants are widely used because of their lightweight, low cost, and great performance properties. Polyethylene resins are utilized to provide product protection as well as improved barrier protection. Plastics used in agriculture have a high light transmission rate, which helps plants develop faster. Agricultural plastics must tolerate high levels of solar radiation as well as mechanical stress. Antioxidants are utilized in agricultural plastics to enhance processing and thermal stability as well as discoloration resistance.
