New Report:Antimicrobial Plastics Market -Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019

Antimicrobial Plastics Market

Plastics play a major role in our lives today and are found abundantly in our everyday lives. They find applications across a host of industries including medicines, construction, appliances, automotives, and in other industries. However, repeated use of plastics over a substantial period is raising a concern over their hygiene. Overuse of plastic bottles to store water results in leaking of chemicals into the water. Storing food in plastic containers promotes the growth of harmful bacteria. Contamination problems are increasing with escalating cases of pathogenic diseases. Use of antimicrobials in plastics can help kill or control the growth of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and other parasites.

Consumer awareness regarding the importance of antimicrobials in plastics is growing owing to the widespread epidemic outbreaks of life threatening diseases such as H1N1 in 2009 and increasing cases of nosocomial infections in recent times.

New Report:Carbon Black Market – Global Industry Analysis, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019

Carbon Black Market

Carbon black is produced by incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum. Traditionally, it was produced by charring wood or bone. It appears black and reflects very little light. Its major application is in the manufacture of automobile tires since it reflects the heat away from the treads and the belt area of the tire, thereby increasing the lifespan of tires. It is also used as pigmentation for food coloring, and in films and resins, depending on the method of extraction and other non-rubber goods.

One of the primary drivers for the carbon black market would be the manufacturing of special-grade carbon black also known as Special Blacks. Apart from being used in the tire industry, carbon black imparts color, is not damaged by ultraviolet rays, is a good conductor of electricity, exhibits non-degradation physical property of polymers, and has ease of dispersion; hence, its scope of application has increased in the non-tire industry. Other main properties of carbon black are its chemical inertness, porous structure, and thermal stability.

Some of the other advantages of carbon black include its chemical purity, low water absorption affinity, and ease of handling. However, there is a major impact on the atmosphere caused by the emission of gases such as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which are contributing to global warming. In the recent years, carbon blacks are being replaced by silica in high performance tires due to better performance of the latter.

The growing automotive and tire industry in developing regions such as India and China is expected to drive the demand for carbon black. In addition, industrial expansion in these regions has resulted in a surge in the demand for carbon black for applications including conveyor belts, mounts, and in heat absorbing devices. Increased application of carbon black in electronics, plastics, paints, resins, films, and other non-tire sectors would also increase the consumption.

Some of the leading global manufacturers of carbon black are Evonik Industries, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Sid Richardson Carbon and Energy, OJSC Kremenchug Carbon Black, Aditya Birla, and TransCanada Corporation.

Thermoset Resins Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019

Thermoset Resins Market

Polymer resins, which on undergoing a chemical reaction (process of curing), form three-dimensional cross-linked structures, are generally known as thermoset resins. On account of their rigid cross-linked structure after the curing process, thermosetting resins exhibit better physical properties than thermoplastic resins. The heating process introduces irreversible chemical curing reactions. Exposure to a high radiation source is another way of initiating the curing process.

Thermoset resins are usually liquids or in the form of molding powders. However these materials are brittle in nature because of immobility of molecules. Cured resin can be reinforced with fibers or any other reinforcing materials to produce composites of excellent properties as compare to conventional polymers, hence thermoset resins have wide range of applications.

Polyester, phenol-formaldehyde (PF), polyurethane (PU), urea-formaldehyde (UF), epoxy resin and vinyl ester resin are some of the most prominent thermoset resins used in various industry segments.. Owing to their unique properties, thermoset resins can be used for a variety of applications in various industries.
