Antistatic Agent Market Overview
Antistatic agents are used on material surfaces to prevent the build-up of static electrical charge due to the transfer of electrons. It makes the material conductive either by being conductive itself or by absorbing the moisture from the surrounding. These agents are biodegradable, free of sodium and potassium, and do not carry any environmental risk. Currently, metals are being replaced by plastics in electronic components due to their higher flexibility, high-cost effectiveness, and lightweight which in turn is increasing the demand for antistatic agents. In electronic components, antistatic agents help to prevent sparks and safeguard them from electrostatic dissipation.
The global market for antistatic agent is estimated to grow with a mid-single digit CAGR owing to physical properties of antistatic agents such as low toxic, high ionic strength and nonhazardous is expected to benefit the overall market demand over the forecast period. Antistatic agent improves mold release, processability and improves external & internal lubrication.
Antistatic Agent Market Dynamics
One of the key trends that will gain traction in the global antistatic agents market throughout the forecast period is the application of antistatic agents in biopolymers. With the growing awareness on the impact of the usage of polymers on the environment, it is expected to rise in demand for biopolymers due to their biodegradability. This will increase the consumption of antistatic materials in various sectors such as the electronics, packaging, coating, and automotive industries.
Packaging industry utilizes antistatic agents to avoid electrical discharge during transportation. Antistatic agents are used to reducing the accumulation of static charge over plastic surfaces. Increasing demand for antistatic agents from industrial packaging, retail packaging, and consumer packaging segments have contributed to the growth of the antistatic agents market. Huge increase in cationic fixation based additives for inkjet paper coating has played a crucial role in the global antistatic agent market growth.
Demand for antistatic agents is increasing due to the widespread use of plastics in almost every major end-use industry. The large application of plastic in the packaging industry is a significant driver for the growth of the antistatic agents market.
However, the easy availability of cheaper substitutes in the market is expected to hinder the global antistatic market growth over the forecast period. Differing government rules and regulations in various countries are expected to dampen the global market further.
