Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

UV Stabilizers Market size is set to reach USD 3 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of UV stabilizers was around USD 1 Billion. UV stabilizers are widely used as specialty polymers in construction activities such as siding, TPO roofing, composite roofing tiles, plastic shingles, polypropylene, and geomembranes, which require significant protection and durability to maintain their physical appearance over time. 

One of the most important roles of UV stabilizers in agriculture is their use in agricultural films as greenhouse films, silage films, and mulch films. These films are crucial for growth optimization, crop prevention, and efficient resource utilization. The demand for agriculture films is expanding owing to its benefits such as development in agriculture films, changes in dietary habits, rise in many nano greenhouses, and growing agriculture outputs.

Therefore, UV stabilizers play a crucial role in the production of agriculture films, and as the demand for agriculture films rises the UV stabilizers market also grows substantially.

Global UV Stabilizers Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand in the Packaging Industry - Owing to its numerous advantages, including enhanced product lifespan and UV protection, the packaging is becoming more popular, which is set to fuel the expansion of the UV stabilizers market over the estimated period. After being exposed to sunlight and extreme weather, packaging materials can benefit from UV stabilizers by maintaining their quality and toughness. The market is primarily driven by consumers' need for durable packaging materials.
  • Rising Awareness Regarding the Harmful Effects of UV Radiations - Food color diminishing, rapid decomposition of fats and oil, and nutrient loss in fruit juices and milk are all effects of UV radiation, which can also damage pharmaceutical products, household goods, cosmetics, and personal care items. UV stabilizers protect plastic packaging and its contents from the sun's harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation. Therefore, awareness about this characteristic is anticipated to boost the sector further.
  • Growing Demand in the Automotive Sector – Increasing disposable income of people, and growing urbanization are increasing the consumption of vehicles. Lightweight materials are commonly used in the production of vehicles considering their advantages in which UV stabilizers also play a crucial role owing to their durability properties. According to OICA, total global passenger car and motor vehicle production was expected to garner 85.01 million units in 2022, compared with 80.14 million units in 2021.  


  • Fluctuations in the Prices of Raw Materials – Raw materials such as aluminum chloride, benzene, sodium nitrite, benzoyl chloride, and others are used in the production of UV stabilizers. And the prices of these raw materials fluctuate regularly, owing to this attribute the prices of UV stabilizers also fluctuate and this affects the market growth further. The prices of UV stabilizer raw materials are - benzene for USD 696.7 per MT, sodium nitrite for USD 40 for 1kg, and benzoyl chloride for USD 38 for 1000g.
  • Highly Volatile Raw Materials
  • Strict Government Restrictions

UV Stabilizer Industry - Regional Synopsis

APAC Market Forecast

The UV stabilizers market in Asia Pacific is poised to witness the highest share of 35% during the forecast timeframe. This can be ascribed on the back of the growing polymer and plastics industry in developing countries, especially China, and India.

Furthermore, owing to its tropical location, the APAC region experiences sunshine all year, exposing it to more dangerous UV rays. This is another major factor behind the rising demand for UV stabilizers in the region. Along with this, the growth in the food and beverage industry is projected to boost the market expansion as UV stabilizers are used in food packaging to protect it from UV rays and can store and transport it in the long term. Annually, India put away 20 billion food & beverage packages. By 2030, the country is expected to consume around 50 billion packages, with an 8% growth rate for beverage packaging and packaging would be containing UV stabilizers. 

North American Market Statistics

The UV stabilizers market in North America is set to grow substantially and mark a lucrative market value between 2023 – 2035. The market in this region is expected to grow owing to the higher adoption of advanced solutions, along with the increasing import of polymers, in Canada and the U.S.
