Chlorinated paraffins are used as secondary plasticizers in conjugation with primary plasticizers including DOP, DINP, etc., especially in PVC. The product adds unique characteristics to PVC such as flame & moisture resistance, good stability, etc. PVC is the third most produced plastic around the world owing to its wide usage in end-user industries including automobile, electrical & electronics, building & construction, and others. This will surge the growth of chlorinated paraffins market in six to seven years down the line.
“Chlorinated Paraffin Market will surpass USD 2 billion by 2024; according to a new research report.”
Due to the implementation of certain rules and regulations regarding fire & safety, such as NFPA 703, NFPA 255, CFPA, NFPA 220, in countries including Germany, Japan, Australia, and the U.S., there will surge be a surge in demand for fire-resistant materials. This will boost the use of chlorinated paraffins in paints & coatings, sealant, caulk, adhesives, rubber, fabrics, and others to provide flame-retardant properties to the material. The tendency to suppress the rate of combustion will depend on the chlorine content and the product is generally preferred over phosphate and bromine additives, which will provide a lucrative growth to the market.
