Introduction: Thickening and Sizing Agents Market

From the last couple of decades, the chemical sector is playing an important role in the contribution towards the growth of regional and global economics. Chemicals are used in several forms such as solvents, chemical intermediates, reagents, catalysts, additives, thickening, and sizing agents. Thickening and sizing agents are vital chemicals used in the industry for various applications and end-uses. Thickening and sizing agents are substances that increase the viscosity and volume of the liquid without changing its properties.

Sizing agent is useful for fibers to impart desired qualities and to minimize absorbency of fibers by keeping its resistance properties constant to make them useful for end-use applications such as printing. On the basis of the classification, sizing agents are classified as surface sizing and internal sizing agents. On the other hand, thickening agents are used as additives in the end-use products for several industrial application such as paints and inks, explosives, and many more. Usually used thickening agents are cellulose, starch, clay, and silica. Thickening agents are derived from polysaccharides such as proteins, vegetables, and gums.
