Global Dispersing Agents Market 2016-2020

About Dispersing Agents

Dispersing agents are surface-active substances that ease the dispersion of an immiscible chemical in a solvent. These are also called dispersants or plasticizers. Dispersants decrease the surface tension, preventing settling or coagulation of particles and ensuring uniform consistency in blends and particles. Adding these agents to a colloid prevents clustering and enhances separation of particles.

Dispersants are produced using chemicals such as acrylic acid, polycarboxylate, naphthalene, sulfonate, and lignosulfonates, depending upon their application. Environmental factors such as water salinity and temperature influence the effectiveness of dispersants.

Dispersants are used as additives in petrol, paints, detergents, and medicines. These agents have many applications in the automotive, construction, detergents, oil and gas, paints and coatings, and pulp and paper industries.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global dispersing agents market to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during the period 2016-2020.
