Antistatic agents are added to polymers in order to remove or reduce the static charge that has accumulated over their surface. Antistatic agents are divided into external and internal agents, based on their applicability. Internal antistatic agents are directly incorporated into the material, whereas, external antistatic agents are applied over the surface of materials. The antistatic agents market is projected to reach USD 631.2 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2016 to 2021. The increasing demand for antistatic agents from the packaging industry, and growth in the electrical & electronics and automotive sectors are factors anticipated to drive the antistatic agents market.

Major end-use industries in the antistatic agents market include packaging, electronics, automotive, textile, and others. The demand for plastics and resins from the packaging industry is growing at a rapid pace. Antistatic agents are one of the major functional agents used in the plastic industry for processing of plastic resins. Major challenges faced by manufacturers of antistatic agents include efficient management of wastes and disposables that are generated from the packaging and electronics industries.

Based on polymer type, the antistatic agents market has been segmented into polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), and others (including nylon, PS, and PET). The polypropylene segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the antistatic agents market in 2016. Polypropylene is widely used in automotive and packaging industries. Increase in automobile production, and development of shipbuilding and marine transportation facilities are likely to fuel the growth of the polypropylene segment in the antistatic agents market.

The antistatic agents market in the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. China and India have witnessed economic growth, owing to rise in construction activities and investments made for expansion of manufacturing facilities. Moreover, initiatives undertaken by various governments worldwide to support the growth in the packaging, electronics, and textile industries are expected to propel the demand for antistatic agents in the Asia-Pacific region.

Antistatic Agents Market

Estimating the future demand for antistatic agents is a prime challenge due to economic slowdown in various regions. North America and Europe are still recovering from the economic crisis, which, in turn, affected the demand for antistatic agents in major end-use industries in these regions.

Key companies operating in the antistatic agents market include 3M (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Akzo Nobel N.V. (Netherlands), Dupont (U.S.), Clairant (Switzerland), Croda International Plc. (U.K.), A. Schulman, Inc. (U.S.), Arkema (France), Evonik (Germany), and Solvay S.A. (Germany). These players have a wide global reach, with an established distribution network, and are increasingly investing in research & development activities. They also possess strong technical and market development capabilities, which enable them to upgrade their existing products for new applications.
