Global AntiStatic Agent Market 2015-2019
About antistatic agents
Antistatic agents are additives that are added to polymers to reduce the build-up of static charge in various materials. Build-up of static charges on the surface of materials affects their functioning. Antistatic agents attract moisture to the surface of the materials. While the amount of moisture from the surroundings may not be enough to wet the surface, it is sufficient to dissipate the static charge. Antistatic agents reduce the attractive, cohesive, and adhesive properties of polymers and make them conductive by altering their conductivity or by absorbing the surrounding moisture.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global antistatic agents market to grow at a CAGR of 4.35%, in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.
