Paper Dry Strength Agents Market Overview:

The Paper Dry Strength Agent Market is expected to witness a significant growth by 2023 with CAGR of ~ 3.50 % between 2016 and 2023.

The paper dry strength agents are chemicals that are multifunctional and are widely used to enhance the strength of the paper or the paperboard. The strength of the paper includes bursting, compressing, tensile, and internal bond strength. This increase in the change in the property of the material improves the drainage and retention of the fiber and makes it fine and filler.

Such agents are mainly available in two forms that are the natural dry strength agents and synthetic dry strength agents. Starch and Guar gum is further sub-segmented under natural dry strength agent and on the other hand, amphoteric polymer, polyvinyl amine, polyacrylamide (PAM), glycosylated polyacrylamide (GPAM), and poly aminoamide epichlorohydrin (PAE) are sub-segmented under synthetic dry strength agent.

The usage of both types of paper dry strength agents has been increased in the last few years.

COVID-19 Analysis:

During the Covid-19 outbreak, manufacturing and production had a very severe impact on the market. The industries have been halted and during this period the major impact was on the small-scale manufactures as the consumption had come to rest.
