Eco Friendly Plasticizers are organic esters, which is combined with polymers to improve flexibility and toughness of the products. An Eco Friendly plasticizer is a substance incorporated to increase the flexibility, workability and intensity by breaking intermolecular forces within the material. Preferable properties are strong intermolecular forces between the plasticizer and the polymer. There is an increase in concern over the traditional plasticizers due to vulnerable migration of PVC compounds and their release to the environment or into human bodies. These concerns have caused the industry to shift towards safer plasticizers called eco-friendly plasticizers. The eco-friendly plasticizers are good replacements for DOP and DBP which are the traditional plasticizers and ensure the same effect on the products as in strength, flexibility, etc. It can be used in various PVC products like cables, wires, Gas pipes, films, etc. These ecofriendly plasticizers are very safe, environment friendly, efficient and highly flexible. It has wide range of applications due to its various advantages: waterproof with good electrical resistivity, good heat stability, better mechanical strength, weather resistance, light stability, anti-hot and cold capability, etc.
The current market serves plenty of choices of plasticizers along with a huge range of attributes that can be selected for required applications to meet specific material requirements. Since the early 1980s, there have been concerns and controversies occurring due to the environmental factors due to the use of traditional plasticizers and also their effects on human health. Thus, the wide application of plasticizers is being questioned due to their toxicity problems and the migration of compounds. The use of eco-friendly plasticizers owing to their low toxicity level and almost zero migration is beneficial for the environment as well as for human health. This option refers to the vast development of eco-friendly plasticizers and also has motivated researches in various academic and industrial areas. The use of eco-friendly plasticizers complying low toxicity and good compatibility with several plastics, resins, rubbers etc. to substitute conventional synthetic plasticizers has become more attractive and effective.
Market Size & Forecast
As the plastic industry is flourishing continuously, the demand for plasticizers also goes up. Nowadays, there is increasing interest in the use of eco-friendly plasticizers that are categorized by low toxicity and low migration properties. This fact has caused some countries to develop eco-friendly plasticizers and due to the increased interest of researchers and industries in the development of new eco-friendly plasticizers.

By Raw Materials:
Global Eco Friendly Plasticizers Market is further classified on the basis of region as follows:
Eco friendly plasticizer has various applications in adhesives, resins, polymers and many more and is expected to drive the market rapidly over the forecast period. The numerous benefits of Eco Friendly Plasticizers that are inducing the replacement of traditional plasticizers across various end users include improved mechanical property, flexibility, thermal resistance, waterproof ability, electrical resistivity and low volatility.
Environment Friendly Factor
Rapid research and development with thriving industrial sector is expected to boost the eco-friendly plasticizers market in the developing regions. Most importantly, being eco-friendly it is biodegradable and will not harm the environment from its processing till production of the final product.
However, development of eco-friendly plasticizers is very costly and is likely to increase the manufacturing cost of the final product. The eradication of environmental factor is hampering the manufacturing cost. Thus, eco-friendly plasticizers irrespective of all its benefits are anticipated to hinder the market growth further over the forecast period.
