Nucleating and Clarifying Agents Market: Overview and Dynamics
Exceptional transparency, offered by nucleating and clarifying agents have increased their consumption in plastic packaging and the scenario is projected to fuel the market growth. Along with high transparency, nucleating and clarifying agents are also used in injection, thermoforming and blow molding applications. In order to enhance mechanical properties and shorten the crystallization rate, nucleating and clarifying agents have emerged as ideal ingredient in production of polymers (polypropylene, polyesters, etc.). Other bundled properties like enhanced optical properties and heat deflection temperature have increased the consumption of nucleating and clarifying agents in polymer manufacturing process. Attributed to aforementioned facts, global nucleating and clarifying agents market is poised to embark on a positive growth trajectory, registering a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period (2020-2030).
Polypropylene being an easy material to nucleate, nucleating and clarifying agents are mostly use in polypropylene applications. As low rate of crystallization of polypropylene allows nucleating agent to have direct impact on nucleation hence fastening its molding rate and productivity. Increasing demand from other niche applications including polyesters and polyamides are set to amplify the nucleating and clarifying agents market growth during the forecast period.
COVID Impact Insights
The novel coronavirus pandemic has brought the entire world to its knees. The number of fatalities arising out of the pandemic is increasing exponentially every day. In response, strict social distancing measures have prompted people to remain indoors and limit their interaction with the outside world. As a consequence, various businesses have experienced massive supply-chain disruptions in the wake of ceasing production. This also applies to the nucleating and clarifying agents market. However, lockdown ease in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa are set to assist the market growth by the end of 2020
