Synopsis of Dispersing Agents Market
Dispersants are also known as dispersing agents or plasticizers. They are non-surface active polymers used for the prevention of clumping and to help in separation of particles. These agents consist of surfactants, which act as chemical compounds and reduces surface tension, in turn, preventing the coagulation or settling of particles. Dispersants help in maintaining uniformity in mixtures, which makes them suitable for the use as additives in paints, medicines, and gasoline. Dispersing agents with weight 5000 to 30000g/mol are termed as high molecular dispersants whereas dispersing agents with weight ranging from 1000 to 2000g/mol are known as low molecular dispersants. High molecular dispersing agents are considered to be more effective than the low molecular dispersing agents. The growing demand from the end use industries is a major factor driving the growth of the global dispersing agents market. Some of the key end-user industries using dispersing agents are building and construction, paints & coatings, pulp & paper, oil & gas, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and detergents among others. The growing development of manufacturing units and industries in the developing regions are expected to boost the market during the forecast years. The global dispersing agents market is expected to expand at an encouraging CAGR during the forecast years. However, the volatility in the cost of raw materials and lack of research and development activities in the industry is anticipated to be the major restraining factor for market growth.
Among the end user industry, building & construction is expected to be the largest segment and is expected to grow at a considerable CAGR during the assessed period. The growing application of dispersing agents as additives in gypsum and concrete is the major factor positively driving the market.
The Global dispersing agents market share by end-use industry
Source: MRFR analysis
The dispersing agents market is segmented across five regions: Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, North America and the Middle East & Africa. Among these, Asia Pacific holds a major share of the market and is expected to show a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. The rapid growth of industries and urbanization is fuelling the growth of dispersing agents in the developing countries of Asia Pacific. Moreover, the presence of most populated economies such as India and China has augmented the building & construction and automotive sector, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. China, Japan, and India are the key consumers of dispersing agents in this region. North America is the third largest dispersing agents market. The developed end-user industries such as transportation, building & construction, and paint & coatings among others are contributing substantially to the market growth. Moreover, the Shale gas revolution in the region has surged the oil and gas activities, especially in the U.S. which is further adding to the demand for dispersing agents.
Europe is the second largest market after the Asia Pacific. The presence of major manufacturers, such as BASF SE, Clariant AG, and Arkema Group among others, is fuelling market growth. Moreover, the growing production and sale of automobiles coupled with growing investment in the construction sector are also positively impacting the market growth. The major countries attributing to this growth are Germany, France, Italy, and the U.K.
The report covers brief analysis of the major geographic regions namely Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
January 2022 - Perstorp has carried out the acquisition of GEO-owned Di-Methylolpropionic Acid [DMPA] business, which emphasizes its stance as a sustainable specialty solution developer in the coatings and resins segment. The acquisition will further elevate the firm’s strategic standing in Alkyds and Polyurethane dispersions, a crucial step to be a specialty leader in numerous waterborne coating sectors.
CPS Performance Materials is the parent vendor of GEO, and is a specialty chemical brand with numerous businesses that serve multiple markets such as dispersants, nutrition, pharmaceuticals, and specialty coatings.
September 2021 - Cargill will acquire Arkema’s extensive epoxides business, which should give the former higher production capabilities with respect to bio-based plasticizers (dispersing agents) as well as polyols while enabling it to better serve its end-use customers with organic/nature-derived substitutes for conventional petroleum-based additives.
The acquisition of epoxides business owned by Arkema’s, Cargill will be able to have full control of the entire production process, changing its soybean oil completely into epoxides. This will ultimately help create bio-based plasticizers as well as polyols, which are in turn used to create a broad line of products that offer convenience in everyday life, such as tiles, shower curtain liners, furniture, and carpets.
