The Global Market for Organic Peroxide 2018-2023 - Increasing Demand from the Polymer Industry: Analysis by Type, Application and Geography -


The "Global
Organic Peroxide Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography
- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)"
report has been
added to's offering.

The organic peroxide market is expected to register a moderate CAGR of
4.2% during the forecasted period, 2018-2023. The market is driven by
many factors, such as increasing demand from polymer industry, however,
growing regulations on the product regarding its usage in food
applications are restraining the market during the forecasted period.

Increasing Demand from the Polymer Industry

Organic Peroxides are used in polymer industries as a source of free
radicals for polymerization of unsaturated monomers, which are used to
produce various polymers, such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE),
polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyacrylate, polystyrene (EPS, GPPS, HIPS,
SAN), and polybutadiene. Growing plastic applications in various
end-users, like healthcare, biotechnology, and automotive industry, due
to their chemical properties are expected to drive the market during the
forecasted period.

Polyurethane - The Fastest Growing Application

Based on type, diacyl peroxides has the largest share and is expected to
grow at a healthy rate. Diacyl peroxides find major applications as a
free radical initiator during the polymerization of PVC's, vinyl monomer
polymerization, curing agent for thermoset resins, and as crosslinking
of thermoplastics & elastomers. Growing demand from emerging countries
of Asia Pacific and South America is expected to drive the market during
the forecasted period.

Notable Development

  • AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals invested more than EURO 12 million in
    order to expand the production capacity, along with its up gradation
    of its organic peroxides facility in Los Reyes, Mexico. The project
    involves the construction of a new facility to manufacture Perkadox
    CH-50 organic peroxides.
