Additives are used to improve the properties of polymer to enable production of better finished products. The plastic additives market is segmented into five-six categories on the basis of type: plasticizers, stabilizers, flame retardants, impact modifiers, blowing agents, nucleating agents and others. Of Among these categories, plasticizers are is the most widely used type of plastic additives type, followed by flame retardants. A major part of plasticizers is used in polyvinyl chloride. Plasticizers are highly used in manufacturing PVC products for construction applications. The plastic market heavily depends on additives to strengthen the properties of plastic to be used for several applications such as food packaging, automotive interiors and exteriors, storage containers, homecare, and industrial equipment. All these products are manufactured from polymers that are mixed with a complex blend of materials called additives to enhance their physical or chemical structure. Plastic additives impart unique properties to the polymer to which they are added.

The plastic additives market is segmented into three categories on the basis of plastics: commodity, engineering, and high-performance plastics. Manufacturers produce different types of additives depending on the plastic grade and specific application. The demand for commodity plastics is expected to grow due to the increasing use of polyolefin plastic packaging in food & beverages and pharmaceutical applications. Commodity plastics are widely used thermoplastics. They are produced in large volume owing to their low raw material cost and abundant availability. The most common commodity plastics are PS, PE, PP, PVC, ABS, and PMMA. .  Engineering plastics which possess excellent physical properties for efficient and prolonged use. These polymers are capable of working under wide temperature ranges, various mechanical stresses and in various chemical environments. High-performance plastics are thermally stable plastics, which can withstand temperatures above 1500C. These plastics have superior mechanical properties.
