Global Dispersing Agents Market to Reach US$ 11.4 Billion by 2032, Stimulated by Burgeoning Construction Sector

November 16, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Dispersing Agents Market Report by Product Type (Suspension, Solution, Colloid, Powder, and Others), Application (Construction, Automotive, Detergents, Oil and Gas, Paints and Coatings, Pulp and Paper, and Others), Weight (Low Molecular Weight Dispersants, High Molecular Weight Dispersants, Advanced High Molecular Weight Dispersants, Oligomeric Dispersants), and Region 2024-2032”, the global dispersing agents market reached a value of US$ 7.1 Billion in 2023. Dispersing agents, or dispersants, are additives that aid in the dispersion of an immiscible solution by reducing its viscosity. These agents are characterized by low molecular weight, which enables them to strongly absorb pigment particles. They are utilized for attaining a uniform consistency by improving the separation process of particles, reducing surface tension, and preventing sedimentation or coagulation of particles. Some of the common chemicals used for the production of dispersants include acrylic acid, sulfonate, polycarboxylate, naphthalene and lignosulfonates. These agents find applications across numerous industry verticals, such as agriculture, automotive, detergent, pharmaceutical and construction.

Global Dispersing Agents Market Trends:

There is a significant increase in construction activities across the globe, especially in emerging economies, which is driving the growth of the dispersing agents market. This can also be attributed to rapid industrialization, improving economic growth in numerous countries, expansion of the commercial sector and extensive infrastructural developments. Apart from this, the escalating shale gas exploration activities, in confluence with the thriving oil and gas industry, is also positively impacting the market growth. Moreover, rising environmental consciousness has accelerated the adoption of paperboard materials in contact food packaging, which is consequently driving the demand for dispersing agents as they play an essential role in the production of paperboards. Furthermore, the advent of advanced technologies has further contributed to the market growth. For instance, the US-based specialty chemicals provider, Lubrizol Corporation, launched Solsperse Hyperdispersants, which are gaining widespread preference. This can be attributed to their improved pigment dispersion and barrier properties related to inter-particulate attraction. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 11.4 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.2% during 2024-2032.
