The Methacrylate-Butadiene- Styrene (MBS) segment held the largest share in the Impact Modifier market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2022-2027. Impact Modifier gives high impact strength and elasticity to the finished goods and is mostly used in the construction, consumer goods, and appliances industry. MBS is environmentally friendly which is contributing to the growth of impact modifiers. It helps to soften the rigid plastic and enhance the finished goods. According to the Institution of Civil Engineers, the global construction market is expected to grow by US$ 8 trillion by 2030 driven. The rapid growth in construction activities in China, and India will help the growth of the Impact Modifier Market during the forecast period.

The PVC segment accounted for approximately 55% of the market share in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Impact Modifiers are added to different polymers like Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate to improve the durability and toughness of PVC. It is highly demanded in many end-use industries like Packaging, automobile, healthcare, construction. PVC is widely used in flooring, windows, doors, pipes, roofing, blood bags, tubing, wire, and cable insulation due to its low cost, higher durability and gives safety to construction material. The growing demand for engineering plastics such as polycarbonate increasing the demand for impact modifiers in the automotive industry. Engineering plastics helps to reduce the weight of finished goods and enhance the performance giving heat resistance, high durability, and toughness. For instance, according to Boeing, the global aerospace and defense market will be at US$8.7 trillion over the next decade, up from US$8.1 trillion in 2019. In many regions, such as Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, stable GDP growth, relatively strong passenger demand, and lower commodity prices are driving the growth of the aerospace industry. As a result, the growing focus across these regions on the aerospace and defense industries is projected to fuel the growth of the global Impact Modifier market over the forecast market.

The Packaging segments accounted for approximately 35% of the market share in 2020 and are estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing demand for plastics packaging is boosting the demand for impact modifiers during the forecasted period owing to their excellent properties like shock resistance, corrosion resistance, anti-static, and mechanical shock absorption. Packaging is important in transportation to preserve the goods. Increasing demand in food packing films, bottles, drug packaging is growing the demand for impact modifiers. Furthermore, the demand for protective packaging in the electric & electronic and medical & Pharmaceutical sectors across the globe is equally helping in the growth of the Impact Modifiers market.

Impact Modifier Market Challenges

Growing Environment Concern

Environmental concern has always been a major challenge in the impact modifiers market. The increasing demand for eco-friendly products is restraining the growth impact modifier market. Polyvinyl chloride, highly persistent plastic particles release dangerous chemicals into the soil that can drain into groundwater and causes environmental damage. Every year, the world produces more than 400 million tons of plastics of which only 14-18% of plastic waste is formally recycled, and the percentage is much lower in some countries. Thus, growing environmental damage regarding the usage of PVC products can inhibit the growth of the market since plastics (PVC) are non-biodegradable and responsible for land pollution. The national and international organizations are working globally to reduce their usage to an extent.
