Organic peroxide is a compound that comprises of two oxygen atoms combined together. Its compounds are used as activators, accelerators, cross-linking agents, catalysts, curing agents, promoters, initiators, and hardeners. It is further used to initiate the polymerization processes to develop plastic polymers such as polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, and other products like fiberglass. The different types of organic peroxides exhibit diverse properties, which supports the manufacturing of various polymers comprising different characteristics. This capability further expands its applications across coatings, chemicals & plastics, paper & textiles, and adhesives & elastomers.
The organic peroxide market is expected to observe a growth rate of around 4% over the forecasted timeframe. The ongoing expansion of paper & textile industry, rapid industrialization, along with increasing demand for plastics & rubber is driving the industry growth. The rising population across the globe along with growing demand for numerous consumer goods and products is stimulating the business landscape.
