The global antifog additives market was valued at USD 1.22 Billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 1.74 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2015 and 2020. Based on type, the antifog additives market is classified into glycerol esters, polyglycerol fatty acid esters, sorbitan esters of fatty acids, ethoxylated sorbitan esters, polyoxyethylene esters of oleic acids, gelatin, titanium dioxide, and others. The glycerol esters segment held the largest share in the global antifog additives market in 2014. Increasing demand of antifog additive films from the food packaging and agricultural sectors drives the overall demand of glycerol esters. Similarly, based on application, the antifog additives market is segmented into food packaging films, agricultural films, and others (including films for refrigerator doors, mirrors, helmet visors, glasses, and lenses). 2014 is considered as a base year for the study, and 2015 to 2020 is considered as the forecast period.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the global antifog additives market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were later verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key personnel, such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. This data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments of the market. The breakdown of profiles of primaries is depicted in the figure below.

The global antifog additives market is projected to reach USD 1.74 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2015 and 2020. Rising demand for antifog additive films from the food packaging and agricultural sectors and the increasing demand for packed food items are major factors influencing the growth of this market.

Among all applications, the food packaging films segment led the global antifog additives market in 2014, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Antifog additive films are widely used in the food packaging sector. These films increase the visibility of food items present in the package as well as enhance the aesthetic value of the food package.

The glycerol esters segment accounted for the largest share in the global antifog additives market, followed by the polyglycerol esters and sorbitan esters segments. The demand of glycerol ester antifog additives will continue to rise as its usage is considered to be safer in comparison to other additive types.

North America serves to be a lucrative market for antifog additives. It accounted for the largest share in the global antifog additives market. The antifog additives market in North America is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the growing demand of antifog films from the food packaging and agricultural sectors. In addition to this, the rising awareness about health and safety is propelling the overall demand of antifog additives market in this region.

Antifog Additives Market

Stringent government rules and regulations related to the usage of antifog additives in the food packaging films and dependence on industries manufacturing agricultural and food packaging films act as restraints for the antifog additives market.

The durability of antifog additives becomes a primary issue for companies manufacturing antifog films. This has further led to the development of new and innovative antifog additives. Akzo Nobel N.V. (U.S.), Croda International Plc. (U.K.), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), PolyOne Corporation (U.S.), and DuPont (U.S.) are key players operating in the global antifog additives market. Akzo Nobel N.V. focuses on product innovation through the adoption of advanced technologies and effective research & development activities. The company has been undertaking these strategies in a bid to enhance its product portfolio and improve growth opportunities in emerging markets. Akzo Nobel is currently concentrating on the development of antifog additives that are highly durable and efficient for agricultural films application.
