Plastisol is a suspension of PVC or other polymer particles in a liquid plasticizer; it flows as a liquid and can be poured into a heated mold. When heated to around 177 degrees Celsius, the plastic particles dissolve and the mixture turns into a gel of high viscosity that usually cannot be poured anymore. On cooling below 60 degrees C, a flexible, permanently plasticized solid product results. Aside from molding, plastisol is commonly used as a textile ink for screen-printing and as a coating, particularly in outdoor applications (roofs, furniture) and dip-coating.
Textile industry is the largest market for plastisols in 2017, and will continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. Plastisols find applications in textile products such as industrial fabrics, apparels, personal protective equipment, home furnishing, footwear, laminated textile, and others. Plastisols are also widely used as textile printings inks in the textile industry.
Asia Pacific was the largest market for plastisols in 2017, globally. High consumption potential, growing production capacities, competitive manufacturing costs, and high economic growth are the major driving forces for the market in the region. Asia Pacific is characterized by technological innovations in various segments of the plastisols industry. Asia Pacific is also projected to register the highest growth in the plastisols market. The high growth in the region is expected to be backed by the increasing demand from the textile and transportation industries, coupled with the rising awareness about environment-friendly products. Moreover, the growth of the automobile industry is expected to lead to a surge in the demand for plastisols in the transportation segment. In addition, major global players are establishing export-oriented facilities in the Asia Pacific region, which is thus expected to further lead to an increasing demand for plastisols.
