The dispersing agent consumption is estimated to be 3,960 KT in 2013 and will grow at a CAGR of 6.7% annually till 2018. The increasing demand for dispersing agents in Asia-Pacific, especially in China, and the growth in end-user industries such as construction and paints & coatings are key factors that drive the global dispersing agent market.
Asia-Pacific dominates the dispersing agent market, followed by Europe and North America. Development and modernization of infrastructure has created a boost in the demand for dispersing agents by enhancing its usage in the construction industry. The rising need to provide efficient and environmentally sound energy has created a hike in the consumption of dispersing agents in the oil & gas industry. Similarly, the shift
to water based systems has led to an increased demand for dispersing agents worldwide, especially in the paints & coatings industry.
Fluctuating costs of raw materials have affected both the quality and quantity of dispersing agents that are produced and the ones available. This factor has thus provided a huge hindrance in an overall growth of the dispersing agent market. In addition to this, the presence of time-honored technologies also affects the production and efficiency of dispersing agents. At present, the impact of these factors is relatively high. However, emerging economies and innovations in products will create growth opportunities for the dispersing agents in the near future.
