Global Impact Modifier Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Impact Modifier Market was worth US$ 3,678.0 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% over the forecast period. While the historical CAGR is 4.2%, the market is expected to hit US$ 5,934.3 Mn by 2032 end.

Impact modifiers are a class of chemicals used to increase the tensile strength of polymer compounds exposed to environmental pressures. They can be found as resins and are rubbery in texture. Impact modifiers absorb impact energy and increase the durability of the polymer compounds to which they have been introduced, thanks to their flexibility.

Manufacturers’ more streamlined and comprehensive product portfolio has encouraged end users to use impact modifiers. Furthermore, tailor-made offerings in the impact modifier product portfolio have enabled manufacturers to improve the impact modifier application portfolio. Weather testing of plastic additives such as impact modifiers during the production of performance materials has become more important than ever.

Weathering in-service failures, in which impact modifiers play a significant role, are becoming more common, particularly in the case of automotive plastics. Impact modifiers provided improved weatherability at a lower cost. Weathering-related failures are a particular concern for performance material manufacturers.

Market Dynamic


Due to constant innovation and the demand for lighter materials in many applications, plastic is increasingly displacing older materials. Impact modifiers, which improve the completed product’s mechanical and impact qualities and reduce its cycle time, are increasingly used in conjunction with polymers in manufacturing goods for several applications.


The price fluctuations of the raw materials needed to create polymers and the monomers used to make polymers place a considerable restraint on the market for impact modifiers. Changes in the price and quantity of crude oil must be considered while creating and utilizing these materials since monomers, products generated from crude oil, are used to make polymers.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why is PVC anticipated to grow throughout the forecast period?

Due to its broad application in numerous end-user sectors, including consumer products, packaging, automotive, and construction, the PVC segment is expected to dominate the market.

These polymer resins use the impact modifier as additives to increase toughness and flexibility to fulfill the physical qualities of rigid components. Additionally, it improves the toughness and impact resistance of molded and extruded plastics, particularly those used in harsh environments or under impact.

Impact modifier applications have various advantages, including superior weatherability, flammability, processability, optical, and tensile properties.

The segment’s expansion is primarily attributable to PVC’s low-cost and wide range of end-use sectors, including packaging, construction, automotive, and consumer products, as well as its easy availability.

The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) segment is anticipated to dominate the market based on the criteria above.

Why is there a huge demand for Packaging Segments during the forecast period?

In terms of revenue, packaging was the market’s largest end-use category. Due to its capacity to provide a perfect balance between crease-whitening resistance and clarity for packaging applications, the product is frequently employed in packaging applications. The market is expanding due to rising demand for food and pharmaceutical packaging. The packaging industry is also supporting this market expansion.

Region-Wise Analysis

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa.

  • North America is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing market, with a market share of 27.4% and the ability to provide the ideal balance of crease-whitening resistance and clarity for packaging applications due to rising demand for polymer products in various end-user industries in major economies. The rapid increase in the use of plastic packaging across many end-use industries is expected to drive demand for impact modifiers.
  • The Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow strongly over the projected period due to the increased demand for polymer products across various end-use sectors in important countries like China, India, and Japan. The area will likely dominate the market in terms of revenue over the anticipated period.
