    (I-BusinessNews.Com, October 13, 2021 ) Dispersant/ Dispersing Agent Market size is forecast to reach $10.5 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2021-2026. Dispersant/Dispersing Agent is a surfactant used as an additive across various applications like oil drilling, and surface coating owing to their ability to offer a consistent mixture of particles and avoid setting and clumping. Growing demand for dispersing agents from paper manufacturing companies to improve the evenness and increases the toughness of the paper is driving the growth of the market. Whereas, the developing building & construction industry in the emerging nations coupled with the population growth is also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the growing use of various dispersing functions like low and high molecular weight dispersant and oligomeric dispersant agent to reduce the viscosity of textile inks is also driving the market. Furthermore, increase the use of dispersant agents to prevent the formation of biofouling such as micro-organism and plant algae on marine vehicles is driving the market.

    Covid-19 Emergence

    The COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold every day with a severe impact on people, communities, and businesses. The pandemic has reduced the demand for Dispersing/Dispersant Agent across various applications like oil drilling and surface coating due to decline demand from end-use industry market. A decline in businesses for at least three months during the pandemic, along with lower demand from some industries has put the dispersant agent market growth in the backseat. In addition to a decrease in investment in construction & infrastructure and reduction in automobile sales have further hindered the growth of the market. As per BCG, a private company, the automobile sector in China was facing a contraction of -10% from Q1- Q3 in 2019, in the same period Europe and the USA was facing a contraction of -27% and -17% respectively. Thus hindering the Dispersant Agent Market growth as these dispersants are used in the automotive coating.

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Segment Analysis – By Type

    Anionic segment held the largest share of more than 35% in the Dispersant/Dispersing Agent market in 2020.

Additionally, they are effective in stabilizing inorganic pigments and fillers. These types of dispersant agents are mainly used in paint & coating, paper & pulp, oil drilling, and the textile industry. Whereas, in the paint & coatings, anionic agents are used to achieving the highest possible loading of fillers and pigments in the grinding phase. Besides, in the pulp industry, these anionic agents are used as an additive to provide smooth stock by separating fiber and to prevent clumping and setting of pulp. Thus, the growing demand for paints and coatings, and paper globally further demand an anionic dispersing agent to lead the market.

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Segment Analysis – By Formulation

    Water-Based Dispersing Agent segment held the largest share of more than 60% in the Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market in 2020. Water-Based Dispersing Agent allows the production of highly loaded, highly stable, and broadly compatible dispersions for a variety of particles in applications such as conventional and digital aqueous inks as well as aqueous coatings, paints, and primers. The water-based agents contain polymeric stabilizing chains selected for solubility in an aqueous medium in combination with a variety of humectants, coalescing aids, and cosolvents. These dispersing agents used in adhesives consist of solid adhesive in an aqueous phase and prevent the adhesive particles from sticking together during storage. Moreover, water-based dispersion adhesives can be applied by brush, roller, in beads, or by spraying. Therefore, these qualities enable water-based dispersing agents to boost the market for dispersant/dispersing agent market growth. Whereas, growing demand for environment-friendly agents drive the demand for water-based dispersing agents, which in turn propels the market growth.

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Segment Analysis – By Function

    High-Molecular Weight Dispersant segments held the largest share of more than 25% in the Dispersing/Dispersant Agent Market in 2020. The growing demand for High-Molecular Weight dispersants from various end-use industries like paint and coatings, printing, building and construction, and packaging drive the market growth. As High-Molecular Weight Dispersants enhance gloss, improve tone development, and avoid flocculation as compared to the oligomeric dispersant and other functions. Furthermore, High-Molecular Weight Dispersant provide consistent color development, no flocculation, considerably lower resin content, and significantly lower viscosities. The high-molecular agent offers a definite stabilization effect. These dispersing agents can be linear or branched molecules with molecular weights from 5,000 to 20,000 gram-molecule (g/mol).

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Segment Analysis-By Application

    Adhesives & Sealant segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR of 7.8% in the Dispersant/Dispersing Agent market during the forecast period. Dispersing agents are essential elements in adhesives and sealants to effectively disseminate fillers or solid particles. The dispersing agent provides electrostatic or steric stability to stop particles from flocculating, thereby eliminating any viscosity change and phase separation. The dispersant agent deflocculates solids and reduces the viscosity of both water-borne and solvent-borne adhesives and sealants. Whereas, the surging uses of adhesives & sealants in the building structures to attach weather-resistant barrier, sealing laps and seams the further drive the market growth. Whereas, the growing construction industry further drives the demand for adhesives & sealants in the dispersing/dispersant agent market.

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

    Paint & Coating Industry held the largest share of more than 35% in Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market in 2020. Dispersing/Dispersant Agent is widely used in the paints and coatings industry. Dispersing agents ensure the consistency of the paint is maintained and also maintain the desired properties, such as the strength of color, or appropriate pigmentation. Additionally, dispersant agents also ensure enhanced gloss, reduces viscosity, provides stability, and prevents sedimentation of particles in the paint. Thus, owing to the Dispersing/Dispersant Agent properties and their benefits, the demand is growing from paint and coating manufacturers.

    Dispersant/Dispersing Agent Market Drivers

    Use of Dispersing Agents Against Oil Spill

    Dispersing agents are one of the quickest oil spill responses available to clean oil pollution. Increased use of dispersant agents by the oil & gas industry to tackle oil spills is boosting the demand for dispersing industry. Oil spills are one of the major concerns for the oil & gas industry and a significant threat to the Marine Environment. Oil spills are caused during drilling or transportation of oil. Dispersants are used on oil spills to decrease the risk that the oil slick would reach shores and affect the surroundings like marshes and mangroves or come into contact with animals at the surface. Dispersants agents are sprayed on a surface of an oil spill, which breaks the oil into smaller droplets (less than 100 microns) that are more easily diluted in water, as smaller oil particles are more easily biodegraded and it provides a measure of protection for sensitive habitats threatened by a surface slick. As per International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation Ltd (ITOPF) report in 2019, it was estimated that a total of 1,16,000 tons of oil were spilled in the environment due to tanker related incident in 2018, and in 2019 about 1000 tons of oil was spilled in 3000 km of coastal line. Rising environmental concern due to the oil spills is raising the demand for dispersant agents in the oil & gas industry.

    Paint and Coating Industry is Fueling the Markets Growth

    The paint and coating industry is driving the market growth due to an increase in demand from the automotive, manufacturing, industrial coating, and construction sector. The rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing economies especially in China, India and Brazil are boosting the demand for surface coating. According to American Coating Association (ACA), APAC is dominating the market with 53% of share in the global market in 2018, while China, India, Japan, and South Korea accounting for 87% of the share in the region. The growth in paint and coating industry has had a positive effect on the paint additives market, which in turn drive the market growth.
