Segments’ Analysis

Based on the type, the market is segmented as persulfate, peroxides, and aliphatic AZO compounds. Peroxides is expected to remain the most dominant type as it is used as an initiator for the radical polymerization process of monomers. The demand for organic peroxides is driven mainly by the growing demand from the coating, adhesives, and elastomer manufacturers with increase in consumption of these compounds in end-use sectors, such as automotive, electronics & electricals, construction, composites, and chemicals & plastic industries.

Based on the active species type, the polymerization initiator market is segmented as free-radical, cationic, and anionic. The wide use of free-radical polymerization for the thermal decomposition of molecules that contain weak bonds such as peroxides or aliphatic AZO compounds is driving the growth of the segment.

In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to dominate the polymerization initiator market during the forecast period. The region has emerged as the largest consumer of these initiators owing to the increasing production of polymers in China, India, Japan, and Malaysia, among others. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
