logoCovid-19 Impact

In 2020, the global organic filler demand decreased, considering the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the government-imposed lockdowns, such that to stop the new COVID-19 cases, various industries’ activities were stopped temporarily. Construction activities were stopped in various countries, across the globe, however, the impact was for the short term only. In the construction industry, organic filler-based polymer products are widely used. Automotive production sites were also stopped temporarily, which further declined the consumption of these filler-based polymer products from the manufacturing of various automotive parts. However, the demand from the IT and computer segment of electrical and electronics increased in 2020, as various firms offered work-from-home models to their employees, which further enhanced the demand for organic filler-based polymers, used in the parts for the IT and computer products.

Furthermore, in 2021, these end-user industries recovered significantly. The construction industry grew significantly in 2021, owing to the various order backlogs fulfillment for the construction industry and rising demand for office & commercial spaces across the globe. Moreover. the automotive industry has also shown a positive trend in 2021, compared to 2020. According to the OICA, global automotive production accounted for 80.15 million units of vehicles in 2021, witnessing a growth rate of 3% compared to 77.71 million units of vehicles in the previous year.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing demand from the automotive industry to drive market growth during the forecast period.

The global organic filler market cap may grow owing to the rising trend of using organic filler-based polymer parts in the automotive sector, including the electric vehicle segment. Organic fillers are used in polymer products, such that to enhance the characteristics of end products and reduce the overall cost of the product. The demand for automobiles has increased, which also supported the production of vehicles and related polymer parts. According to the OICA, global automotive sales accounted for 82.68 million units in 2021, witnessing a growth rate of 5% compared to 78.77 million units sold in 2020.

Apart from conventional vehicles, the sales of electric vehicles greatly increased in the current scenario, which also supported the demand for the organic filler market, as these fillers are also used in electric vehicle parts, similar to conventional vehicles. According to the EV Volumes, around 4.3 million new battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plugin hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) were sold during the first half of 2022, registering a growth rate of 62% compared to the H1 2021. Further, as per EV Volumes, the total electric vehicle sales are likely to reach 10.6 million units in full-year 2022, witnessing a growth of 57%, over 2021. All such factors are supporting the demand for organic fillers used in various automotive parts manufacturing.

logo Restraints

  • Availability of various inorganic substitutes to restrict market expansion

The availability of various inorganic alternatives for organic fillers is likely to hinder the growth of the studied market. Various types of inorganic fillers are being used in polymer products of different end-user sectors. Some of the key types of inorganic fillers include oxide, hydro-oxide, silicate, salt, metal, and other inorganic fillers. Specifically, glass fiber, talc, mica, kaolin, clay, nano clay, silver nanoparticles, and calcium carbonate are among the common inorganic fillers. Most of the inorganic fillers are abundantly available for end-use applications, after required processing. Inorganic fillers such as aluminum trihydrate, calcium carbonate, talc, and others, are also widely used due to their low cost, continuous supplies, and ability, after surface treatment, to improve selected resin properties. Considering various established technology which uses inorganic fillers such as talc, glass fiber, kaolin, etc. during the formulation of polymer end-products, the demand is likely to remain high for inorganic fillers in the coming years, which will further, somehow, hinder the growth of organic filler market.

logo Opportunities

  • Rising research and development for bio-based organic fillers to provide growth opportunities

Recently, researchers have suggested various potential applications for new bio-based organic fillers. These organic background fillers are particles added to polymeric materials to lower the consumption of more expensive polymer materials and to enhance some properties of the end-products. In the current scenario, a huge amount of organic fillers are being used in various end-user industries. Recently, environmental consciousness and concerns have resulted in a renewed interest in natural, renewable resources-based, and compostable materials, thereby, bio-fillers have been increasingly used as fillers in various polymer products. These new bio-based organic fillers are majorly derived from agricultural products. These organic fillers can be based on polysaccharides, lignin, and proteins. Researchers have also checked various organic fillers such as walnut shells, ground coffee waste, pistachio shells, brewers’ spent grains, chestnuts, etc. impact on the physicochemical and mechanical properties of silicone-based materials. All such factors are likely to act as opportunities for the global organic filler market.

logo Challenges

  • Unawareness related to the right applications of various natural organic fillers to challenge market cap growth

Various natural organic fillers are available for being used in different polymer product manufacturing. However, the key challenge is to match the right natural organic filler with the right application. This is a short-term issue only. Already various R&D has been carried out and many of them are in the initiation phase, to find the right application and overcome this issue. For example, researchers have used rice husk ash as fillers in the natural rubber industry. The use of rice husk ash in natural rubber enhanced hardness but decreased tensile strength and tear strength. Researchers have also tested corn starch, potato starch, sago starch, sisal fibers, and kenaf fibers, as organic fillers in various applications. Such developments are likely to overcome the challenges faced due to unawareness related to the right application of natural fibers.
