Antistatic Agents Market size is forecast to reach $634.39 million by 2025 after growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2020-2025. Antistatic agents are used on material surfaces to prevent the build-up of static electrical charge due to the transfer of electrons. It makes the material conductive either by being conductive itself or by absorbing the moisture from the surrounding. These agents are biodegradable, free of sodium and potassium, and do not carry any possess any environmental risk. The growth of the market is expected to be driven by the high demand of antistatic agents from the automotive sector.
Antistatic Agents Market Segment Analysis – By Form
Liquid form held the largest share in the antistatic agents market in 2019. Liquid antistatic agents have a greater tendency to move over the material surfaces as opposed to other types of antistatic agents. These agents are used predominantly in spraying and effective dyeing applications. The application of liquid antistatic agents results in non-stick surfaces and efficient antistatic properties that improve weaving operations in the textile industry. These ionic liquids may be transparent or translucent and, as such, do not interact with the optical properties of the final products.

Antistatic Agents Market Segment Analysis – By Type
Polyglycerol Esters held the largest share in the antistatic agents market 2019. Polyglycerol Ester are produced by polymerization of glycerol in the presence of an alkaline catalyst followed by esterification with fatty acids. Polyglycerol esters are a class of food emulsifiers used extensively within the food industry because of their amphiphilic nature in various types of food. The corresponding polyglycerol esters are produced from polyglycerol and fatty acids in a direct esterification of triglycerides and polyglycerol. The emulsifiers are of the non?ionic type and exhibit a broad range of polarity or hydrophilic?lipophilic balance (HLB) values, ranging from 6 to 11, compared with many other food emulsifiers. The broad range of HLB values of the polyglycerol esters makes them a versatile emulsifier for food applications. The amphiphilic properties of the polyglycerol ester of the emulsifier in water exhibit mesomorphic activities forming liquid crystalline structures. An important application of the polyglycerol esters is in cake batters with little or no content of fat and oil. Polyglycerol esters have also found applications in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
Antistatic Agents Market Segment Analysis – By Polymer
Polyethylene held the largest share in the antistatic agents market 2019. Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer with a variable crystalline structure and a vast range of applications depending on the particular type. Polyethylene is commonly categorized into one of several major compounds, the most common of which include Linear Low-Density Polyethylene, Low-Density Polyethylene, and High-Density Polyethylene. Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) held the largest share in the polyethylene segment. LLDPE has a unique melt flow properties. LLDPE is less shear sensitive because of its narrower molecular weight distribution and shorter chain branching. During a shearing process, such as extrusion, LLDPE remains more viscous than LDPE. The lower shear sensitivity of LLDPE allows for a faster stress relaxation of the polymer chains during extrusion, and, therefore, the physical properties are susceptible to changes in blow-up ratios. In melt extension, LLDPE has lower viscosity at all strain rates. As the deformation rate of the polyethylene increases.
Antistatic Agents Market Segment Analysis – By End Use
Packaging is the primary market of the antistatic agents in 2019 growing at CAGR of 4.7%. 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. Plastic is lightweight, corrosion resistant, chemically inert, durable and recyclable, which ensures that manufacturers and customers prefer it to metal and wood. This, in turn, has contributed to an rise in demand for antistatic agents in the packaging industry. Plastic is used in electronics as it is cost-effective and compact and is expected to boost the market for antistatic agents. In addition, some of these agents do not pose environmental hazards as they are biodegradable and non-hazardous when dissolved in water, which is a driver of market development. The increase in the demand for packaging across various industry verticals will lead to the growth of antistatic agents market in terms of volume across the globe.
The coronavirus pandemic has had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the disease and efforts to quarantine it. The overlying problems facing packaging industry are the impact that the economy has on businesses that fall into places that aren’t survive during the pandemic. These CPGs and OEMs are hard-pressed to find funds to support their companies. This factor will hinder the growth of market for the year 2020. But after the situation became normal it will grow with a steady rate in the forecast period.
Antistatic Agents Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
APAC dominates the antistatic agents market with a share of 42% followed by North America and Europe. The economy of APAC is mainly influenced by the economic dynamics of countries such as China and India, but with growing foreign direct investment for economic development of South East Asia, the current scenario is changing. Countries in South East Asia are witnessing increasing demand in electronics and packaging industries are contributing to the growth of the global antistatic agent market. Expanding middle-class, changing lifestyle preferences, growing inclination toward using smart electronic devices are among the primary factors driving the growth of the global consumer electronics market. In addition, rising disposable income of consumers, coupled with the need for Internet usage, will propel the demand for electronic devices over the forecast period. Governments around the world are increasingly supporting digitalization, eventually promoting the usage of various electronic devices among consumers. This factor will drive the growth of antistatic agents market in the forecast period.
Antistatic Agents Market Driver
Rise in the packaging sector will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period
The global packaging market is unique and is influenced by overall economic health, development of new materials, and other consumer trends. In the long run, the global packaging market is very gradually shifting toward smaller package sizes because families are shrinking in size and do not eat together as frequently as they did before. The World Packaging Organization, in its report published in 2008, states that there are about 100,000 companies active in the global packaging manufacturing industry, creating as many as 5 million jobs. These numbers will likely rise as the industry continues to expands. From food and beverage products to pharmaceuticals to FMCG to electronics to furniture and a myriad of other industrial and consumer durables, packaging has a prominent role to play in the value chain.
Growing demand of plastics from various end user industries will drive the growth of the market
Since the last decade, there has been a substantial demand for the products as replacement for metals and ferrous alloys across various industries such as consumer goods, automotive, and industrial machinery.
