The U.S. antistatic agents market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2030. The United States antistatic agents market is growing owing to the adoption of packaging methods to reduce waste during transportation and antistatic handling due to the accumulation of static charges in packaging materials. It is projected that a change from plastic packaging to paper and paperboard packaging would pose a challenge to anticipated growth in the industry.

Antistatic agents are used to preventing stacking of static charges on product surfaces such as biopolymers and plastic. Additives are known to exist in different forms such as anionic, nonionic, amphoteric, cationic. Anionic additives include sodium alkyl phosphates, sodium alkyl sulphonates, and sulphonamides. Antistatic agents resist static charge build-up in plastics used in different end-use industries such as automotive, food, clothing, medical, electronics, and others. Antistatic additives avoid the dissipation of dust in industrial and consumer packaging and improve the visual quality of packaging. Throughout electronics, pharmaceutical, and food packaging, static discharge is a common phenomenon. Sudden discharge of static electricity can affect the operation of electronic circuits and harm electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, anti-theft devices, airbags, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), DVD players, and sound systems among others.

Plastics are increasingly used in food packaging industries as they are lightweight and easy for transportation. As the food packaging industry is growing rapidly, the use of different plastics styles is rising proportionately. The packaging industry in the United States is one of the major significant end-users of plastic resins. The use of plastic resins in packaging is growing further as the organized food retail sector is growing. As a result, there are ample problems in the plastic industry associated with static electricity; requiring the use of antistatic agents to combat static discharge issues.

In the end-user industries, especially food packaging, the demand for antistatic agents is growing rapidly. As a result of the combined development of all sub-segments such as medical and food packaging, the global packaging industry is experiencing substantial growth. Despite price inflation in 2016, there has been a steady demand for processed food. Changing lifestyles for consumers has led to increased demand for ready-to-eat food. Together with the growing number of retail stores selling packaged food, this aspect drives market growth for antistatic agents.

The market is distinguished by the presence at the global level of a large number of large-scale players including BASF Corporation, Evonik Corporation, and 3M. Producers include Blend Colors Pvt. Ltd. and Ampacet Corporation looks forward to increasing its geographical footprint to increase its business scope.

Some of the key market name market players include Arkema, BASF SE, Clariant, Corbion N.V., Croda International Plc., Dowdupont, Emery Oleochemicals, Evonik Industries AG, Fine Organics, Ilshinwells, KAO Group, Kenrich Petrochemicals Inc., Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Nouryon, New Japan Chemical Co., Ltd., Palsgaard, Polyone Corporation, Riken Vitamin Co., Ltd., Solvay S.A., Tosaf Compounds Ltd. among other prominent players.
