The rheology modifiers market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.3% (between 2015 and 2020) and is expected to be worth $5,600 Million by 2020. The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for rheology modifiers and is projected to retain this position over the next five years. This is because the region accounts for the highest production as well as consumption of paints & coatings across the globe. This is driving the demand for rheology modifiers in Asia-Pacific as paints and coatings comprise the largest application of the former.

The major driving factors of this market include the growth of end-user industries for paints & coatings and adhesives & sealants applications. Moreover, the changing lifestyle and increase in purchasing power of people has led to greater demand for cosmetics products, which is also driving the growth of the market. The market is restrained due to various factors such as the shift from print to digital media in the inks market and declining R&D investments in the pharmaceutical industry.

The intensity of competitive rivalry in the rheology modifiers market is moderate to high. The market is experiencing moderate growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by applications such as paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, and adhesives & sealants. The high growth potential of the end-user industries for the above mentioned applications is the driving the market in Asia-Pacific.

The rheology modifiers market has been analyzed in terms of value ($Million) for four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW. It has also been estimated based on its applications such as paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, adhesives & sealants, paper & inks, pharmaceuticals, HI&I products, oil & gas, and construction.

The rheology modifiers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% in the next five years, to reach $5,600 Million by 2020. Rheology modifiers also known as thickeners or flow control agents are used for modifying the viscosity to meet the desired rheological profiles. There are majorly four kinds of rheology profiles; newtonian, dilatant, pseudoplastic, and thixotropic. Different rheological profiles are required for various applications. Rheology modifiers are formulated based on various chemistries to meet the desired specifications.

The report covers the market and its trends that concern applications such as paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, adhesives & sealants, inks, pharmaceuticals, HI&I products, oil & gas, and construction. Paints & coatings comprise the major applications, followed by cosmetics & personal care and adhesives & sealants. Paints & coatings comprise the largest application in the rheology modifiers market and account for more than one-third share of the said market. The cosmetics & personal care application is projected to witness the highest CAGR of 4.0% between 2015 and 2020.

The report covers the rheology modifiers market and its trends that concern four regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.
