Solid Figures: Ceresana Analyzes the Global Market for Stabilizers

Window frames made of PVC are almost indestructible - if they were protected against heat and light with stabilizers. Stabilizers enable a secure production and processing of plastics and rubber; they save many products from premature aging and weathering. The market research company Ceresana analyzed the global market for stabilizers already for the third time. The analysts expect stabilizer revenues to increase to USD 5.1 billion until 2024.

Market Study Stabilizers

Less Risks for Health and Environment

The most important types of stabilizers are tin-, lead-, and calcium-based stabilizers as well liquid mixed metals. After cadmium has vanished from the market of the European Union, the same will soon happen to lead stabilizers. An increasing demand for more environmentally friendly stabilizers is observable worldwide: Lead is more and more replaced by calcium or tin. Ceresana expects consumption of calcium-based stabilizers to increase by 3.4% per year.

Major Consumer Is the Construction Industry

The most important application area of stabilizers is the production and processing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The largest sales market in 2016 was the production of pipes: This sector consumed about 60% of total demand. Production of profiles ranked second, followed by the segments cables, films, and flooring. Sales of these products depend on the construction sector. Its development is therefore of crucial importance for the demand for stabilizers. Asia-Pacific is the largest regional market for stabilizers accounting for a share of 58%, followed by Western Europe. While application in pipes ranks first in Asia, the application profiles dominates the market in Western and Eastern Europe.
