DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 11, 2023--

The “Dispersing Agents Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Formation Type; By Structure; By End-Use; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2022 - 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The global dispersing agents market size is expected to reach USD 10.8 billion by 2030, according to a new study. The report gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The rapidly rising adoption of dispersing agents across various verticals and the launches of circulating agent-based products for industries are driving market growth over the forecast period. Dispersing agents are utilized in multiple industries, including oil & gas, construction, water treatment, paints & coatings, and oil & gas.

The industrial sector’s expansion and the trend toward aqueous systems have accelerated the use of premium paints and coatings that are heavily fortified with superior dispersing agents. For instance, in June 2022, Clariant introduced its first polymeric worldwide dispersing agent for use in all varieties of water-based paint systems and high-quality pigment formulations that can integrate both organic and inorganic pigments. Dispersogen Flex 100-based aqueous pigment preparations may also work with solvent-based base paint systems.

Furthermore, in the pharmaceutical sector, dispersion agents are critical. In the creation of various drug delivery systems, they are crucial. Pharmaceutically safe dispersion agents are primarily used to increase solubility to manufacture chemicals not entirely soluble in an aqueous solution.

For instance, in October 2021, a more environmentally friendly pigment preparation for polish applications, Licosperse, was a new dispersion agent product line introduced by Cariant AG. The base medium can easily contain licosperse pigment dispersion agents to generate a reliable color quickly. Hence, the above factors are supporting the market to grow fast.

Moreover, an increasing number of manufacturers are putting more importance on R&D achievements to keep up with the demand for new product developments and technical advancements, which is helping to fuel the market’s expansion. For instance, in July 2021, the wetting and dispersing additives, which Altana introduced, stood out for their exceptional performance in terms of significant viscosity reduction with simultaneous Newtonian flow behavior, excellent pigment stability, and ideal optical qualities.
