The global polymer filler market is expected to reach USD 62.54 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. the surge in demand for low-density fillers with better impact strength is likely to propel the market growth. Polymer fillers are likely to emerge as a cheaper alternative to costly plastic resins over the forecast period. Increasing demand for low-cost fillers from various end-use industries in both developed and emerging countries such as the U.S., Germany, India, China, etc. is expected to propel the market growth.
Stringent regulations pertaining to automotive pollution has forced automotive manufacturers in the U.S. and Europe to use lightweight materials for manufacturing. Development of novel low-density fillers is expected to propel the market growth.
Inorganic fillers were the leading product segment and accounted for 78.9% of total market volume in 2015. However, organic fillers are expected to witness a brisk growth of 5.6% over the forecast period. Increasing environmental concerns have attracted more industries to opt for organic filers rather than traditional inorganic fillers. Abundant availability along with renewable nature of the natural fibers such as wood, cellulose, etc. is also expected to have a positive impact on the market growth.
