Market Segmentation:

The global Polymerization Initiator market is segmented by type (Persulfate, Peroxides, Azo Compounds), Active Species (Free-radical, Cationic, Anionic), Application (Polyethylene, Polypropylene, PVC, Polystyrene, ABS), and Region.

By Type, Peroxides to Dominate the Global Polymerization Initiator Market

The major types of commercial initiators include peroxides, azo compounds and others. Of these the peroxide family is estimated to account for more than 40% of total demand. In terms of growth rate, however, azo group is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The reason behind this trend includes increasing usage in various emerging fields such as nanocomposites & 3D printing which is driving overall demand further at a healthy CAGR of 3.3%.

This is expected to be driven by factors such as increasing consumer inclination towards the usage of peroxide-based Polymerization Initiator s for better efficiency, durability, and quality of end products. This trend is anticipated to remain strong in the forecast period owing to improving living standards among consumers across North America and Asia Pacific leading to growing demand of new applications including electronics & automotive components, footwear & accessories etc.

Asia Pacific is the Largest Consumer in the Global Polymerization Initiator Market

Asia Pacific is the largest consumer and producer of Polymerization Initiator . As of 2021, the region has over 20 countries housing prominent manufacturing companies of Polymerization Initiator s, where most suppliers are located at China, Japan and India. Many manufacturers located at Japan producing adhesion promoter (silyl ketene acetal) to prepare food contact coatings on paper packaging materials.
