Plasticizers - Category Spend Analysis

 

The plasticizers procurement report identifies the growing demand for plasticizers from end-use industries such as construction to drive the demand for plasticizers. The global construction industry is witnessing year on year growth of 3%-5%, which has resulted in a direct increase in demand for plasticizers, where it is used in pipes, adhesives and sealants, and cables and tires.

Furthermore, superplasticizers, which have superior water absorbing properties, are being widely utilized for the manufacture of ready-made concrete. The construction industry is adopting this type of concrete as it provides improved strength and workability. Plasticizers are mixed in a range of 0.1%–0.4% by weight of cement used, resulting in a reduction of water content and enhancement of workability in the cement mixtures.

Plasticizers - Procurement Best Practices

 

Buyers should engage with suppliers who can assist them in selecting suitable plasticizers that are capable of meeting their application-specific requirements. Assistance also includes providing comparison software to buyers through which they can differentiate various plasticizers based on chemical and physical properties such as melting point, flash point, specific gravity, refractive index, vapor pressure, and viscosity. Suppliers can also help the buyers in the assessment of the effect of a plasticizer on end-product in terms of properties such as viscosity, volatility, tensile strength, and percentage of elongation.

Plasticizers - Procurement Challenges

 

The health issues related to phthalate plasticizers has prompted buyers to shift to non-phthalate plasticizers such as trioctyl trimellitate trioctyl trimellitate (TOTM)[AC1] , epoxy, and adipates. The move towards non-phthalate plasticizers is further encouraged by supportive government policies, which limit the use of phthalate plasticizers.

However, this plasticizers procurement report highlights the high cost of non-phthalate plasticizers to be one of the key challenges faced by buyers in the market. The higher price point of non-phthalate plasticizers is delaying the transition from phthalate plasticizers. SpendEdge analysts expect that long-term business agreements between buyers and suppliers will bring down the cost of non-phthalate plasticizers and aid in successfully moving away from the use of phthalate plasticizers.
