02 Aug Non-Phthalate Plasticizers Get a Push
Houston-based IHS Chemical reported that phthalates accounted for 70% of the world’s consumption of plasticizers in 2014 last year, which was down from about 88% in 2005. The projection is that they will drop to 65% in 2019. An important IHS caveat, however, is that China accounts for such a large share of the total market. The 2015 IHS report placed DEHP at 37% of the global market, down from about 54% in 2010, and DINP now accounts for about 16%.
