Covid-19 Impact

Covid-19 pandemic has hugely affected the purging compound market in terms of production and demand. The economic slowdown across the globe led to the total shutdown of production of purging compounds and also has affected the distribution of the stock of purging compounds which was already produced before the lockdown. This situation led to the incurring of losses by the Purging Compound top 10 companies. The supply and distribution of the purging compounds were also highly affected owing to the economic restrictions. This situation is however set to ease by the year ending 2021.

Purging Compound Market Segment Analysis – By Plastic Machinery

Injection molding machines segment held the largest share of more than 45% in the purging compound market in the year 2020. Injection molding machinery facilitates faster rate of production and also produces plastic components with multiple colors. It is ideal for high volume production. The utilization of injection molding machinery facilitates the reduction of carbon build-up and changeover time, which results in uptime of the machine and reduction of scrap parts, which is estimated to accelerate the growth. Injection molding machines also promotes high cleaning accuracy in several engineering components. It is also driven by the rising demand for injection molded products, owing to technological advancements and the increase in environmental concerns to reduce carbon footprint.

Purging Compound Market Segment Analysis – By Materials

Polyethylene (PE) segment held the largest share of 28% in the purging compound market in the year 2020. Polyethylene (PE) is the most commonly used plastic in the present days. Polyethylene (PE) is the highest produced plastic with 34% more production than any other kind of plastics. It is most commonly used in the packaging industry. Polyethylene (PE) showcases excellent properties such as good density and low moisture absorption which is very accommodative of purging compounds and is easy to be used on. Polyethylene (PE) is used extensively for packaging, wire and cable insulation, containers, bottles etc., which makes Polyethylene (PE) the most used plastic.

Purging Compound Market Segment Analysis – By Purging Solutions

Liquid segment held the largest share in the purging compound market in the year 2020 and is expected to rise at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. Liquid form of purging compound is highly effective in removing thermoplastics.Liquid purging compounds are also extensively used in thermoplastic processors and also used in high impact poly styrene, which is easy to thermoform and fabricate. It is also highly effective in the treatment of several chemicals that are in a granule structure of ultra-high purity purges. Liquid purges are very effective in resin and color changes.

Purging Compound Market Drivers

Rising demand of plastic products in various end use verticals

The increase in demand for plastic products in various end-use industries such as consumer products, electronics and packaging has given rise to the use of machinery producing such plastics which in turn has increased the use of purging compounds which is necessary to keep the machinery clean and maintain them. Purging compounds are widely used for effective cleaning of plastic processing equipment, which consists of scrubbing granules, which penetrates into dead spots and hot spots of machines to remove carbon build up which comprises of layers of separated additives and degraded polymers.

Statutory compliance made compulsory

There is various statutory compliance which is made compulsory with various legal and administrative bodies to avoid any kind of mishap or accidents in the production process. Using purging compounds in the processing of food products and pharmaceutical devices or products have been made compulsory by OEMs and brand owning consumers failure of which gives the latter legal rights to reject the products. Making it legally compulsory has increased the use and demand for purging compounds, and non-compliance of this law might invite legal actions.

Reduction in production cost

With better performance and increase in the quality of machine uptime, there are very less wastages and downtimes. Therefore, the cost related to idle time, downtime, scrap and wastages can be reduced to a great extent. This helps in the overall production cost of the manufacturing unit, which is hugely driving the purging compounds market.

Purging Compound Market Challenges

Fluctuation in Raw Materials Prices

The high prices of purging compounds are one of the biggest challenges to the market. Relative to the quality and efficiency provided by purging compound, the prices of the products are also high. Therefore, most of the manufacturers prefer to utilise cheaper alternatives in place of purging compound. Some of the main engineered products used for purging are Polysulfone (PSU), Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), Polyetherimide (PEI), Polyphenylene oxide (PPO), Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and Polyphthalamide (PPA). PEEK and PPS are the most commonly used thermoplastics for processing purging compounds.

Stringent regulations

There are various stringent regulations regarding the use of purging compounds, especially for waste water treatments, because the water wastes generated from manufacturing purging compounds are hazardous to the environment, which has to be compulsorily followed by manufacturers, which could prove expensive and attract legal actions if not followed. Several food and drug regulation bodies in various countries like FDA of US and Central Drugs Standard Control Organization of India has made using purging compounds as a compulsory compliance for packaging food, beverages and drugs. In European region, the containers in which purging compounds are shipped must bear the CE Mark as a statutory compliance in relevance to European Union (EU) directives for health and safety.
