Plasticizers are plastic additives that are used to soften and add flexibility to a material. They are chiefly used in the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products. Plasticizers are of different types such as phthalates, non-phthalates, polymeric, and aliphatic. Phthalates are the most widely used plasticizers, especially in manufacturing PVC products. The chief application of plasticizers includes floor and wall coverings, wires and cables, films and sheets, and coated fabric. These products are ultimately used in various end-user industries such as housing and construction, automotive, and electrical and electronic.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing demand for bio-based plasticizers. Petrochemical-based plasticizers, such as phthalates, are crucial in the manufacturing of plastics, especially PVC. Phthalate-based plasticizers dominate the global plasticizers market. However, stringent environmental regulations and health concerns associated with the application of plasticizers are inspiring the demand for bio-plasticizers.

These norms and regulations, coupled with the tight supply of dioctyl phthalate(DOP), di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), and diethyl phthalate (DEP), have led to an increased necessity to replace traditional phthalates with eco-friendly plasticizers. Owing to these factors, there is a demand for safe, non-phthalate, biodegradable, and bio-based plasticizers.
