LONDON, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chlorinated paraffins are chlorinated n-alkanes or paraffins used as metalworking fluids and secondary plasticizers in the manufacture of PVC compounds. These are typically classified based on the grades or carbon chain lengths such as l-grade, m-grade, and h-grade. Each of these grades defines the length of carbon chain such as short chain chlorinated paraffins, medium chain chlorinated paraffins, and long chain chlorinated paraffins. These grades are further sub-divided based on chlorination content within each grade such as less than 40%, 40% to 70%, and above 70% chlorine by weight. The application requirement decides the level of chlorination and grade of chlorinated paraffin used. Demand for chlorinated paraffins has increased in various applications owing to the low cost and broad range of properties of these paraffins. Growth in plastic and metalworking industries is likely to drive the demand for chlorinated paraffins during the forecast period. Availability of various application-specific substitutes and potential prohibition in developed regions owing to environmental concerns are projected to hamper market growth in the next eight years. However, expansion in the lubricants market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to offer growth opportunities to the chlorinated paraffins market during the forecast period.
