Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Plasticizers

  • MIBC is used as a raw material in the manufacturing of methyl amyl sebacate and methyl amyl phthalate, which are used as plasticizers.
  • Plasticizers are generally organic or a combination of organic and inorganic substances, which help reduce water content for workability. Plasticizers help in reducing water requirement, and to make concrete strong and workable.
  • Owing to the growth in the plasticizers demand for various end-user applications, such as flooring and wall, film and sheet coverings, wires and cables, coated fabrics, consumer goods, and other applications, the demand for MIBC is also expected to rise.
  • The plasticizers segment has been increasing in the regions, like Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, owing to the robust growth in the construction projects, which serve as one of the largest consumers of paints and coatings.
  • Additionally, rising demand for lightweight vehicles and the introduction of new emission standards have been driving the demand for PVC products in automotive applications.
  • MIBC is generally mixed with PVC for plasticity and viscosity of the product used in the automotive industry. Thus, growth in demand for such products in the automotive industry is likely to increase the demand for MIBC, during the forecast period.
