Useful Alcohols: Ceresana Analyzes the World Market for #Solvents

Solvents play a major role in industrial production: They can dissolve, dilute, and, in a very fine distribution, absorb other substances without changing them chemically. Solvents (sometimes also called dissolvents) are mainly used in the paints and varnishes, print inks, and adhesives industry but also, for example, as an ingredient of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and detergents. Substances that cause unpleasant odors, explosive vapors, as well as health and environmental damages are controversial and increasingly targeted by the legislature. Ceresana analyzed the global market for solvents already for the fourth time.

Brilliant Prospects: Ceresana Examines the Global Market for #Paints and #Coatings Based on #Polyurethane (PUR)

Polyurethane coatings offer excellent optical properties, such as high gloss and brilliance. Polyurethanes (PUR) are reaction products of polyisocyanate curing agents with several polymers, e.g. with polycarbonates. Polyurethane-based two-component coatings are very solid, offer good resistance to aggressive chemicals, weathering, and mechanical stress. Ceresana examined the global market for PUR paints and coatings in detail: The market research institute forecasts revenues generated with these products to rise to approx. USD 20.3 billion until 2025. The most important application areas for PUR paints and coatings are furniture and wood processing, transportation, and other industries. In 2017, approx. 53% of global demand was registered in Asia-Pacific, followed by North America and Western Europe.

Promising Packaging: Ceresana Analyzes the European Market for #Printing #Inks

How can manufacturers of printing inks hold their own in their shrinking market? The rapid ascent of online printing plants has revolutionized the printing industry in recent years. “In more and more segments, digital printing is more efficient and faster than analogue printing processes”, says Oliver Kutsch, managing director of the market research institute Ceresana. “Besides substitution effects between the particular printing processes, especially publication printing is exposed to a high competition with digital publishing processes.” Ceresana analyzed the European market for printing inks, which also includes toners for electrophotography (laser printing). The analysts expect the market for printing inks to decrease to a level of 1.17 million tonnes until 2024. Some segments, however, will experience growth.

Essential Ingredients: Ceresana’s Fifth Report on the Global Market for #Fillers

Fillers do not only make numerous products cheaper, often, they also greatly improve the properties of the filled materials. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the complete market for fillers for the fifth time already: Worldwide demand for ground calcium carbonate (GCC), precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC), kaolin, talc, carbon black, and other fillers will presumably amount to about 75 million tonnes in 2024. The market researchers of Ceresana expect revenues to increase by an average of 3.2% per year.

The most important applications for fillers are the production and processing of paper, plastics, paints and varnishes, elastomers as well as adhesives and sealants. There are significant differences between the sales markets for fillers in regard to the world regions: While application in the paper industry accounts for a market share of 31% in Western Europe, the share is below 19% in Asia. Vice versa, manufacturers of elastomer products in Asia hold shares of about 32% on the filler market - in Western Europe the share amounts to 22%. To emphasize these regional and country-specific differences, the demand for fillers in the application areas is analyzed in detail.

Durable and Reliable: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for #Adhesives and #Sealants Based on #Polyurethane

Polyurethanes (PUR) are plastics resulting from a polyadditional reaction of polyisocyanates with polyols and are either hard and porous or soft and elastic depending on its production. Different kinds of PUR are needed for reactive, thermally activated, hot melt, dispersion, and solvent-borne adhesives. These adhesives are for example used to bond car front spoilers, sandwich constructions, and facade elements, to glue metal brackets, or to seal electronic casings. PUR Sealants are particularly utilized in the transport industry as well as in the construction industry for window joints, and sealing of windows, pipes, and more. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for adhesives and sealants based on PUR in detail. Until 2024, Ceresana expects an increase in revenues generated with these products to over USD 9.7 billion. Adhesives and sealants based on other products are NOT included in this study.

Flexible, Firm, and Light as a Feather: Ceresana Study on the European Market for #Plastic #Films

Because of the ban on imports of European plastic waste impeded by China at the beginning of 2018, Europeans urgently need to find another solution. The EU commission, for example, is considering a “plastics tax”. An EU directive against lightweight plastic carrier bags has already contributed to a reduction of consumption in many countries. Until 2030, all packaging in the EU ought to be reusable and made of recyclable materials. “Manufacturers do not need to worry about demand”, says Oliver Kutsch, managing director of Ceresana. The market research institute has analyzed the European market for plastic films. “Included in this market are plastic bags and sacks but also packaging films, shrink and stretch films, agricultural films as well as other films such as construction films”, explains Kutsch: “This market is likely to grow to about 14 million tonnes until 2024.”

Lifesavers in Plastics: Ceresana Analyzes the World Market for #Flame #Retardants

The catastrophic fire at Grenfell Tower in London has shown how important fire protection is. “Flame retardants can delay the development of a fire,” explains Oliver Kutsch, CEO of the market research institute Ceresana: “They provide the fire department and those affected with crucial minutes and seconds for the rescue. Flame retardants act chemically and physically by interrupting the incineration process in different phases.” Ceresana analyzed the world market for flame retardants for the fifth time already: for brominated and chlorinated types, as well as ATH, organophosphorus, ATO, and other types. According to the present study, about 2.21 million tonnes of flame retardants per year are currently used worldwide in plastic products, electronic devices, construction material, and textiles.
