The Global Slip Additives Market was valued at USD xx million in 2017 and is estimated to reach USD xx million by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025.
Slip additives offer a low-cost solution to the problem of friction in polymers. Slip additives require very low addition levels, typically 1000 ppm, slip additives are used to reduce fric-tion and allow ease of polymer handling and processing. Slip additives can be incorporated directly into the polymer during the extrusion process. All plastic films have a tendency to adhere to metal surfaces & other film surfaces which acts as a limiting factor to high-speed processing applications as packaging, handling of films, etc. The slip agents work by reduc-ing the surface friction created between the two surfaces. The slip additive migrates to the surface as it cools, allowing a solid lubricating layer to form. The layer acts to lower the fric-tion or adhesion between contacting surfaces.
Slip agents are necessary during various processes in plastics Industry such as Sheet extru-sion, Profile Extrusion, Blow Moulding, Injection Moulding, Blown film, Cast Film, BOPP, BOPET. Slip additives are used extensively in the manufacture of polyolefin films. The use of slip additives has many benefits such as reduction in coefficient of friction of surface, ease of polymer handling and processing. These properties enable better processibility and reduce the risk of surface defects.
Developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil are expected to drive the demand for slip additives due to growing packaging industry caused by increasing demand from end-user industries such as food and beverage, medical, electronics, etc. The demand for plastic films in the medical industry is growing.
Just like bioplastics, demand for bio-based slip additives driven by environmental concerns is expected to gain traction during the forecast period.
Global Slip Additives Market is segmented by Type, carrier resin and application. By Type, slip additives market is segmented into Fatty Amides and Waxes & Polysiloxanes. Fatty am-ides segment is further divided into Erucamide, Oleamide, Stearamide, and Other. Fatty amides segment is the largest segment in Slip Additives Market. Within Fatty Amides seg-ment Erucamide, Oleamide contributed to the significant share of the market. Fatty amides segment will continue to be the major segment during the forecast period due to increasing use in Polyethylene film applications.
Title: Global Slip Additives Market Share 2017 (By Type)
Fatty Amides 68
Waxes & Polysiloxanes 32
By carrier resin, the market is segmented into LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PP, and Others (PET). LLDPE accounted for the major share of the market since LLDPE are extensively used in packaging industry owing to more flexibility, tensile strength, and more conformability. Slip additives are used for LLDPE based agricultural films, stretch films, lamination, heavy duty sack, and personal care film, etc.
By application, Slip Additives Market is segmented into Packaging & Non-packaging seg-ment. Slip additives are widely used for packaging applications. Packaging segment is further divided into Food & Beverage, Consumer Goods, Healthcare, and Others. Due to growing food & beverage industry in Asia, demand for food packaging is rising rapidly in the region hence the Food & beverage segment is expected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. In the Non-packaging segment, Slip additives are commonly used in paints & coating.
By region, Global Slip Additives market is segmented into North America, South America, Asia-pacific, Europe, and Rest of the world. Asia-pacific accounted for the major share of the market due to the huge packaging industry. Packaging Industry in Asia especially China, India will continue to grow due to rising demand in Food, medical as well as electronics ap-plications. Hence Asia-pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region during the fore-cast period.
