Antistatic Agents are added to polymers to prevent the build-up of static electricity and increase the dielectric surface and volume conductivity in plastic materials. Static build-up on plastic surfaces hampers processing and causes various issues such as increased handling problems during transport, storage, and packaging, dust attraction that affects both the quality and performance of the product, and risk of electrical shock to consumers as well as employees in manufacturing plants.
Global demand for Antistatic Agents is increasing due to the widespread use of plastics in almost every major end-use industry. The large-scale application of plastic in the packaging industry is a major driver for the growth of the Antistatic Agents Market. Plastic is lightweight, corrosion resistance, chemically inert, durable, and recyclable, resulting in manufacturers and consumers preferring it over metal and wood. This, in turn, has led to an increased demand for antistatic agents in the packaging industry. Plastic is used in electronics as it is cost-effective and flexible, which is expected to fuel the demand for Antistatic Agents. Additionally, some of these agents do not pose environmental risks as they are biodegradable and non-hazardous when dissolved in water, which is a driver for market growth. Furthermore, the increasing demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient automobiles is driving the demand for antistatic agents. The research and development of Antistatic Agents are expected to offer lucrative opportunities in the pharmaceuticals sector. For example, in 2017, Clariant announced a new amide/amine-free antistatic masterbatch concentrate for polyurethane films used in pharmaceutical production. However, management of electronic and packaging waste may hinder market growth during the forecast period.
Some of the key developments observed in the market include agreements and acquisitions. For instance, in 2017, Clariant strengthened its collaboration with the biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) manufacturer Gettel High-Tech Materials Co., Ltd in China to promote the use of additives and liquid-feeding technology in the BOPP industry. In another instance, in 2017, Croda International Plc acquired IonPhase, an innovative technology supplier of static electricity protection products, for approximately USD 28 million.
