Global Purging Compounds Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Purging Compounds Market was worth US$ 624.1 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. While the historical CAGR is 5.7%, the market is expected to hit US$ 1,128.3 Mn by 2032 end.

Purging compound is used to clean plastic machinery, including injection molding, blow molding, and extruders. A base resin and additions are used to create resin compounds. In plastic production equipment, a purging combination is used to get rid of impurities and black specks or after changing the color of the resin.

A few polymers that require a purging agent are high-temperature resins like polysulfones and polyether ether ketone, designed resins like polyamide and polystyrene, and polyolefins like polyethylene and polypropylene. It enhances product quality and lessens downtime for thermoplastic molding and extrusion equipment. The time needed to clean the machine can be decreased with the proper application of purging substances.

Market Dynamic


The use of purging compounds helps increase productivity, saves time and resources, lowers scrapes and screw pulls, and reduces machine wear and tear, all contributing to the growth of the worldwide purging compound market. Additionally, purging chemicals outperform traditional techniques like regrinding resin and flushing with the following resin.

Another important aspect driving demand for purging compounds is the ease with which these compounds enable the removal of carbon and color deposits from the product. The market for purging compounds is also growing due to the expanding use of plastics in numerous industries, including packaging, automotive, and construction.


One of the main factors impeding the growth of the global purging compound market is the high cost of producing purging compounds.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why does Chemical purging compounds are increasingly utilized by plastic processing manufacturers?

Manufacturers of plastic processing equipment increasingly use chemical purging chemicals to lower production costs and guarantee the best equipment performance. Chemicals are used to dissolve the polymer residue that has built up in barrels, screws, and other machine parts.

Lowering the molecular weight and viscosity of polymers this aids in flushing them out of the machines on their own. Due to their high moldability rate, chemical purging compounds are generally selected since the scrap produced can frequently be used to remold parts.

Why is there a huge demand for extrusion process to manufacture products?

Products with cross-sectional or liner profiles, such as films, tubes, sheets, filaments, cords, coat wires, cables, rods, and profile shapes, are frequently made using the extrusion technique. Due to advantages including high production numbers, superior compounding, effective melting, and cost-effectiveness, manufacturers favor the extrusion method.
