U.S. Antistatic Agents Market: Size, Share & Trends (2018-2025) - An $85 Million Market Opportunity by 2025 -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "U.S. Antistatic Agents Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application (PP, PE, HDPE), By End Use (Packaging), By Product (Glycerol Monostearate, Ethoxylated Amines), And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The U.S. antistatic agents market size is expected to reach USD 84.9 million by 2025. It is anticipated to expand at a 4.8% CAGR over the forecast period. Demand for antistatic agents is growing swiftly led by growth in end-user industries; particularly food packaging. Global packaging industry is witnessing a significant growth owing to consolidated development of all sub-segments such as food and medical packaging. Despite the price inflation in 2016, demand for processed food was steady. Changing consumer lifestyles have resulted in growing demand for ready-to-eat food. This factor coupled with increasing number of retail stores selling packaged food is driving antistatic agents market growth. The market is characterized by the presence of a vast number large-scale players such as 3M, BASF Corporation, and Evonik Corporation at the global level. Manufacturers such as Ampacet Corporation and Blend Colors Pvt. Ltd. are looking forward to increasing market scope by expanding their geographical footprint. Market Dynamics

  • Rising Demand for Antistatic Agents Led by Growth in End-Use Industries
  • Antistatic Agents Poised to Grow Owing to Wider Acceptance of Bioplastics
  • Polymer Recycling Barriers May Challenge Market Growth

Key Findings

  • Ethoxylated amines accounted for 43.8% of the total revenue in 2016. Glycerol monostearate is also anticipated to witness steady growth over the forecast period.
  • Diethanolamides are similar in composition to ethoxylated amines and are produced from amination of fatty methyl esters. They provide the best performance in LDPE and LLDPE applications and are compatible with polyethylene, polypropylene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, and non-corrosive to polycarbonate surfaces.
  • Demand from polypropylene application is expected to grow to reduce build ups of static charges in handling goods made of propylene during loading, unloading, and packaging operations.
