The growth of the Bio-Plasticizers market is attributed to the ongoing research on bio-based plasticizers, which is likely to create opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years. Plasticizers are compounds incorporated in a polymer matrix to increase its flexibility and improve the chemical properties of the plastic product. The addition of a plasticizer can lower the glass transition temperature, melt viscosity, and elastic modulus of the polymer.

Earlier phthalate-based plasticizers represented 85% of the total plasticizers market. However, stringent government regulations and rising health concerns of consumers stimulated the demand for bio-plasticizers. In order to assure sustainability, end users are looking for safe, biodegradable, and non-phthalate-based plasticizers. Bio-based plasticizers are widely used as additives in PVCs.

They are used in PVC resins, PVC cables, vinyl flooring, wire jacketing, automobile parts, etc. The use of bio-plasticizers for wire applications can enable cable manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to reduce carbon gas emissions by up to 40%.
