Dispersing Agents Market Overview Dispersing Agents Market is projected to be worth USD 10.52 Billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.20% during the forecast period (2021 - 2028). During the forecast years, the worldwide dispersing agents market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR. Dispersants are also known as plasticizers or dispersion agents. They are non-surface active polymers that are used to reduce clumping and aid in particle separation. These agents are made up of surfactants, which are chemical compounds that lower surface tension, preventing particle coagulation or settling. Dispersants aid in the homogeneity of mixtures, making them appropriate for usage as additives in paints, pharmaceuticals, and fuel. High molecular dispersants have a weight range of 5000 to 30000g/mol, whereas low molecular dispersants have a weight range of 1000 to 2000g/mol. Molecular dispersing agents with high molecular weight are thought to be more effective than those with low molecular weight. The growing demand from end-user industries is one of the primary factors driving the worldwide dispersing agents market forward. During the forecast years, the market is expected to benefit from the increased growth of manufacturing units and industries in developing areas. Furthermore, increased production and sales of autos, as well as increased investment in the building sector, are all contributing to market growth. Germany, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom are the biggest contributors to this expansion.

Some of the prominent players operating in the global dispersing agents market are BASF SE (Germany), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Cytec Industries Inc. (U.S.), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Air Products & Chemicals Inc (U.S.), Altana AG (Germany), Arkema Group (France), Emerald Performance Materials Llc (U.S.), Meadwestvaco Corporation (U.S.), The Lubrizol Corporation (U.S.), Croda International Plc (U.K), and Gruppo Chimico Dalton Spa (Italy) among others.


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.
