Historic and Future Pathway Analysis for the Anti-settling agents Market

According to Fact.MR, historically, from 2018 to 2022, utilization of anti-settling agents increased at around 2.8% CAGR.

The market for anti-settling compounds is expanding as a result of advancements in the paints and coatings industry. To suit the specialized or customized demands of end-use industries, formulators have developed new product formulations over time. High surface activity is a characteristic of anti-settling chemicals, which aids in keeping heavy pigments suspended and prevents pigment sedimentation in paints during shipping and long-term storage.

  • Short Term (2023-2026): Growing demand from pre and post construction activities will lead the demand in short run.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): Demand from developing nations will drive the market for anti-settling agents in medium term pertaining to growing demand for housing and construction projects.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): Various policies of government promoting eco-friendly products will drive the market for organic anti-settling agents in long term.

“Growing demand from construction industry”

Many end-use applications have incorporated anti-settling agents. The construction and building sector has recently seen tremendous demand for these materials as a result of the growing urbanization and growth in emerging economies. The market for anti-settling agents has seen positive momentum as a result of expanding construction projects in developing countries. The fact that 3/5 of global consumption takes place in construction sector of developing countries.

“Rising penetration of eco-friendly products impacts the demand positively”

Governments all around the world are now concentrating on developing laws and regulations to support the creation and use of environmentally friendly products. This is being done to safeguard the environment from the negative consequences of dumping waste chemicals and other items into environmental bodies after use. The primary motivator for manufacturers to behave sustainably is their own self-serving goal of making the world pollution-free.

Pertaining to this, many manufacturers have started shifting their focus slowly from producing non-ecofriendly to eco-friendly products. However, it is less likely to expect the same effectiveness in eco-products, abundant resource allocation would address the hurdle and project a positive pathway. Also, with growing conversion of production units from conventional to lessen greenhouse gas emission, the result is set to further draft the market to be driven only on a positive note.

“Volatile raw material prices affecting market growth”

The main obstacle to future market expansion is fluctuation in raw material prices. Due to the large number of raw materials required to make anti-settling agents, changes in their pricing have a significant impact on overall market price. However, many raw material suppliers are expected to expand their supply chain resources, which will help manage the factor to some extent.

Owing to increased raw material prices, a substantial demand-supply gap in raw material exists in the market. But these factors are all set to be addressed by strategies being planned by leading raw material suppliers over the coming years.

To overcome various challenges, manufacturers have engaged their R&D teams to work exclusive and extensively on alternate raw materials with higher or similar properties to limit the dependency on the conventional raw material.

Country-wise Insights

Why demand for anti-settling agents in China is flourishing at a rapid pace?

East Asian countries including China offers a huge pool of opportunities for anti-settling agent manufacturers. The market in the region is flooded with a number of small players along with numerous end-use industries. China is well known for developing advance technologies coupled with low labour costs for producing any product.

Such production at low costs opens the market for anti-settling agents manufactured in China that offers a competitive advantage over other counterparts. Construction and paints activities are continuously growing in order to facilitate the demand from growing population. These all factors are leading the demand for anti-settling agents in China.

Demand for anti-settling agents in China is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

What factors are driving demand for anti-settling agents in U.S. markets?

Rising number of constructions, renovations and excessive use of paints in pre and post construction activities are driving demand for anti-settling agents in U.S. markets. Demand for anti-settling agents is majorly driven by the use in cement slurry stabilization along with use in other niche applications.

U.S. is also known for its technologically advanced resources that helps the manufacturers in developing high quality products with better features compared to other countries. This is one of the main reasons for top manufacturers to set-up their plants in U.S.

US markets holds a substantial share of more than 19.1% of global anti-settling agents demand in 2023. It is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

Why application in paints is the highest demand creator for anti-settling agents?

Foams in paints, oils, and fatty alcohols are broken down by anti-settling chemicals in the paint business. Paints need a stabilizer because the droplets might aggregate over time, either settle down beneath the weight of the deposition or float on top, or both.

Anti-settling agents have active surface qualities that provide paints the ability to function as a stabilizer and are insoluble in foamy media. In the coatings business, anti-settling chemicals are also used to stop pigments or other solid particles from settling while being kept.

Demand from paint applications holds a major share of 59.1% in 2023 of total demand for anti-settling agents. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2023-2033.

What Aqueous use case is generating maximum revenues for manufacturers of anti-settling agents?

Paints and numerous other applications that use an aqueous system fall under this category. Aqueous-based coating and ink formulations benefit from superior pigment suspension and rheological qualities provided by anti-settling agents.

Due to environmental issues, the risk of fires, and other factors, switching to aqueous systems has been intensively investigated in recent years in coating materials and related fields. Aqueous anti-settling agents for pigments are therefore naturally sought after. Many of these additives exhibit good pigment anti-settling properties both in low-temperature and high-temperature conditions.

Demand from aqueous use case holds a major share of 63.4% in 2023 of total demand for anti-settling agents. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period 2023-2033.
