The global organic peroxide market size is expected to reach USD 2.89 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report Organic Peroxide Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Ketone Peroxide, Diacyl Peroxides, Dialkyl Peroxide, Percarbonates, Hydro Peroxides, Peroxyesters, And Others); By Application; By Industry Vertical; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Organic peroxides serve a multitude of roles as activators, initiators, catalysts, curing agents, accelerators, hardeners, crosslinking agents, and promoters in various chemical compounds. They are extensively employed as initiators in polymerization processes to produce a diverse range of polymers. The organic peroxide market is expected to witness growth throughout the assessment period, driven by increasing demand for thermoplastics and polymers across diverse industrial applications.

Apart from numerous other industries, organic peroxides find applications in adhesives, coatings, textiles, rubber, and paper sectors. The prevalence of end-use industries is anticipated to rise in developing countries globally. The market is propelled by escalating demand from various sectors, including composites, electrical & electronics, automotive, and construction. Over the projection period, the organic peroxide market share is expected to be driven by the requirement for organic peroxides as catalysts in the production of goods for packaging, personal care, and detergents. The increased usage of engineered plastics and enhanced manufacturing capacity in the sector have augmented the need for organic peroxides in polymerization processes.

 Additionally, the demand for plastics is expected to rise due to increased urbanization, expanding infrastructure projects, and industrialization. However, organic peroxides are known to be highly dangerous if not handled with appropriate safety precautions, posing significant fire and explosion hazards. Their chemical volatility and heat release at high temperatures make them prone to decomposition and fire.

Consequently, organic peroxides are transported in smaller quantities due to these hazardous characteristics. The increasing demand for coatings and adhesives further propels the expansion of the organic peroxide sector. Coating is one of the most prevalent applications of organic peroxides, with their utilization as curing agents aiding in the synthesis of coating resins. Their advantages, such as the ability to produce more polymer chains with lower molecular weight, result in better control over molecular viscosity and weight. This selective radical generation also leads to reduced hydrogen abstraction (crosslinking) and fewer long-chain branches, thereby promoting the overall expansion of the organic peroxide market. Furthermore, the expanding construction sector, which drives demand for coatings and adhesives, also contributes to the market's growth.
