The global slip additives market is estimated to garner a substantial CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021–2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to the ongoing advancement in packaging industry backed by the growing food & beverage packaging industry. Slip additives are used to manufacture thin films and sheets in order to prevent friction between the films, and between the film and the machines, and get the desired properties in packaging material. Slip additives enhance the strength and durability of the films, and reduce handling problems. These also reduce a film’s resistance to sliding over itself or over the parts of converting equipment. Such features are estimated to boost the demand for slip additives amongst the manufacturers of packaging solutions.
The global slip additives market is segmented by type into fatty acid amides, waxes, and others, out of which, the fatty acid amides segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the market during the forecast period on account of its easy availability, lower coefficient of friction (COF), and affordable prices, as compared to waxes and other additives. These are excellent in reducing friction in thinner films, which is estimated to further boost the growth of the segment. On the basis of application, the packaging segment is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to the increasing use of slip additives to improve the quality of packaging films, including polyolefins, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and others.
