DOP Market Is Under Significant Environmental Pressure According to Merchant Research & Consulting Ltd

Dioctyl phthalate (DOP) market has been under significant pressure recently that comes primarily from environmentalists – the industry has been impacted rather adversely and has witnessed a number of market hurdles. Moreover the ever rising feedstock costs have undermined DOP production volumes to a large extent.

Taking up a share of around 65% in the total low-phthalate industry, DOP manufacturers are planning a major switch to high-phthalate plasticisers. Although a whole row of DOP facilities have reduced their capacities, the production still rests at a high level – the demand for DOP on the developed markets is twice as small.
