The naphthalene sulfonate market is predicted to grow at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period.Naphthalene sulfonate are a class of derivatives of sulfonic acid which contain a naphthalene functional unit. They are used to increase the viscosity or plasticity of a material and are widely used as plasticizer and dispersants. It improves concrete mixture by dispersing cement particles and enables the rapid mixing of concrete and finds extensive application scope in building & construction sector. Additionally, it is used as a plasticizer, surfactant and wetting agent in end use industries such as agriculture, building & construction, household cleaning, textile among others. Furthermore in the textile sector, naphthalene sulfonate plays significant role in the process of dyeing.
Rising demand from the growing construction industry is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing investment in the building & construction industry as well as expansion of household cleaning sector in developing regions is predicted to fuel market growth. Growing use of naphthalene sulfonate as a dispersing agent in agriculture sector is anticipated to positively influence demand patterns. However, this industry is dependent upon the crude oil, hence raw material price fluctuation is the main concern governing revenues for naphthalene sulfonate market players. Furthermore, slight toxic nature may act as a minor restraint to the naphthalene sulfonate market.
