Water Repellant Agent Market: Overview


The water repellant agent market is soaring up to greater heights in the present time and is expected to have a high CAGR during the forecast period from 2020 to 2030.

Moreover, it will have a substantial rise in the upcoming times. Water repellant agent covers the surface by nanoparticle compound and provides the material and excellent repellency and durability. It forms on a molecular level in the presence of the hydrophobic functional group. Using these repellant agents can provide a decrease in buildings deterioration and damage of automotive parts. These agents are also utilized in the textile or fabric sector. The utilization of the repellant agents in several sectors propels the water repellant agent market growth.

For creating water repellent fabric, hydrophobic alkyl trialkoxysilane is used so that it can produce a superior hydrophobic effect. The agents are produced with specialized technology in which the coating material is also created. The substrates make a protective finish against the intrusion of moisture while allowing it to release moisture. Such agents act as a protection from moisture caused by rain, dampness, snow, humidity, oxidative forces, and ultraviolet ion incursion. All these can wear off the appearance and reduce the material shelf-life. Such advantageous features of the repellant agents are creating heavy water repellant agent market demand. 

The numerous properties of the water repellant agents have led several industries like automobile, construction, medical, furniture, etc., to adopt it. For these factors, the water repellant agent market will gain huge traction in the forecast years. Over the year, the rapidly growing textile industry and the strong demand for water repellant products are pushing the progress of the market. The new water repellant agent market trends and severe effort by the market players are also causing the market to expand. Moreover, the demand from the automotive industry for waterproof components is also rising. From the construction sector to high-end fabric, everywhere, there is a need for water repellant agents.

According to the water repellant agent market analysis, the market has many segments which show the type of product used. Several technologies like solvent-based or water-based, are utilized for creating top-quality water repellant substances. Further, rapid utilization in many sectors altogether will boost the water repellant agent market progress in the assessment period.

COVID19 Analysis

The surge of the COVID19 infection adversely impacted the entire world. The water repellant agent market also faced many challenges in the pandemic. During the pandemic, lockdown restrictions imposed a halt on the production process and operations. Also, the supply chain was heavily disturbed and the demand to supply gap broadened. The automotive and construction industry was depressed, which affected the market. However, the advantageous properties of the water repellant agents uplifted the demand, which led to the expansion of the water repellant agent market size.

The attempts from key players in creating better solutions and doing constant developments allowed the water repellant agent market to restore its normal growth. In some places, the lockdown restrictions have eased, and there, the market has already gained back its momentum. It is expected that after the pandemic gets over, the water repellant agent market growth will reach optimum levels.

Market Dynamics


  • Major Market Drivers

Recent Developments

Jan 2022 Rudolf Group, a German textile chemical manufacturer, is pushing the limits of research and development by using natural sources as major components in two new Durable Water Repellent (DWR) technologies. The innovations draw on Rudolf Group's pioneering spirit and earlier "firsts," such as the fluorine-free DWR technologies in the RUCO-DRY product line.

Feb 2021 Hubergroup Print Solutions is introducing a water-resistant barrier layer for packing. The company claims that adopting a new formulation of water-based coating binding agents eliminates the requirement for PE film lamination as a water barrier. According to the business, using the HYDRO-X GA Water Barrier Coating can help transition from laminate structures to mono-material paper. To apply the coating, one extra available inking unit is required. Hubergroup believes the solution is most suited for usage in the packaging business, specifically for packing moisture-sensitive commodities like sugar, flour, and dry animal feed.

DOW, one of the leading material science companies, introduced Dowsil Emulsion in 2021, which is a new generation durable water repellant finish for fabrics. It does not contain any fluorocarbons.


Durabuild entered into a strategic partnership with MNC Birla Group in 2021 to enhance product quality and to supply waterproofing chemicals.
