Visiongain’s new report U.S. Dispersing Agents Market 2020-2030: Forecasts by Type (Organic amines dispersants, Polyacrylate dispersants, Siloxanes dispersants, Trimethylolpropane dispersants), Applications {Coatings on paper & paperboard(Polyacrylates sub-segments, Organic amines sub-segments), Food contact for paper & paperboard(Polyacrylates sub-segments, Organic amines sub-segments)}, End-Users (Construction Industry, Paints & Coatings Industry, Pulp & Paper Industry, Detergent Industry, Oil & Gas Industry, Agricultural Industry, Pharmaceuticals Industry, Other End-User Industries), and analysis of leading companies operating in this industry.

The U.S. dispersing agents market was valued at over 35,000 tons in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2030. Dispersants are used in the dispersion of coating agents and additives used in coating processes to prevent particle agglomeration. In the production of food packaging systems, various barrier coatings and colorants are used. It is expected that rapid growth in the food packaging industry will drive demand for dispersion agents over the forecast period.

The U.S. food industry is experiencing intense competition with end-users like Mondelez International, Mars Inc., and PepsiCo Inc. seeking to compete with their business competitors by introducing new goods in line with customer buying desires. One of the important factors driving the demand for paper and paperboard materials is customer preference for aesthetically packaged food items. It is expected that this aspect would result in high demand for colored paper and paperboard material used for packaging.

Manufacturers are developing dispersing agents such as sodium polyacrylate and vinyl acetate to meet the safety requirements of packaged food manufacturers due to the growing importance of paper and paperboard application coatings. As a result, increased demand for dispersants or dispersion agents over the forecast period is expected to provide the manufacturers with sufficient growth opportunities.

Several coatings and performance additives such as barrier coating, dispersants, defoamers, modifiers, dyes, and preservatives are added not only to extend the shelf life but also to give the packaged product visual appeal. Such additives are required in the coating formulations to disperse and stabilize uniformly, ensuring desired properties and functionality such as stability of viscosity, quality, the strength of color and gloss. Dispersion agents are therefore an essential component of the composition of the coating.

Sufficient availability of raw materials along with the lower cost of production was responsible for the development of numerous small and medium-sized manufacturers catering for the global market of dispersing agents. Increasing emphasis on R&D activities due to the rising need for technological developments and consumer innovation has been a key trend observed in market players in recent years and is also expected to continue over the forecast period. Certain growth strategies identified in key players on the market include international expansion, capacity increase, mergers & acquisition, and alliances to reach the untapped market.

Some of the key market name market players include Air Products & Chemicals Inc., Altana AG, Arkema Group, Ashland Inc., Basf SE, Cera-Chem Pvt. Ltd., Chryso SAS, Clariant AG, Croda International Plc, Cytec Industries Inc., Elementis PLC, Emerald Performance Materials Llc, Evonik Industries, Gruppo Chimico Dalton, King Industries Inc., Meadwestvaco Corporation, Rudolf Gmbh, The Lubrizol Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Uniqchem Uk Co. Ltd. among other prominent players.
