Article Type: Conferences, training and publications From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 55, Issue 4
They may only be required in small amounts at any one time, but nevertheless they are absolutely necessary. Without antioxidants, many products would not last very long, and many plastics could not even be manufactured without their protective attributes. Antioxidants also have the ability to slow the deterioration of rubber and adhesives. Acting as stabilizers, they are also useful in facilitating the production of fuel and lubricants. In lipstick and other fat-based cosmetics, they can also be used to prevent rancidness.
Ceresana, a market research company, has devoted its latest study to the industrial application of antioxidants. The study presents more than 500 pages of information about the market, which reached a worldwide volume of 0.88 million tons and a value of 3.7 billion US$ (€2.4 billion) in 2007. With an annual growth rate of 3.9 percent, the volume of antioxidants is expected to reach 1.25 million tons in 2016.
The report discusses more than 25 areas of application and their respective amounts of demand, divided by global regions. It not only examines 90 types of antioxidants and their detailed technical attributes, but also examines company profiles of the 68 most important manufacturers.
The study is available in English or German from Ceresana Research. For more information, please visit: www.ceresana.com/en/
