The global dispersing agents market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.

Dispersing agents or dispersants refer to chemical additives that are used to reduce the viscosity of an aqueous medium and allow suspension of solid material in it. The principal function of dispersants is to facilitate separation of particles in a mixture and prevent clumping or settling of mass. Dispersants comprise a combination of chemicals such as polycarboxylate, acrylic acid, lignosulfonates and naphthalene sulfonate, which have strong adaptability to pigments and liquid surfaces. They also allow smooth spreading of the liquid over various surfaces, owing to which, dispersants find wide applications in industries such as oil and gas, paper, automotive, construction and agriculture.

Rapid industrialization and increasing demand for dispersants in the oil and gas industries are the key factors driving the growth of the market. Dispersants slow down the process of coagulation and help each particle of cement to stay detached and provide enhanced spreadability, which is leading to their increasing demand from the thriving construction industry. Additionally, the increasing oil drilling and exploration activities across the globe are also contributing significantly to the market growth. Dispersants are commonly used to clean and control oil spills in the ocean. They work by binding the product molecules with oil particles and separate them from water, thus allowing oil droplets to biodegrade rapidly in comparison to the large mass of oil. Other factors contributing significantly to the market growth include increasing focus on research and development (R&D) activities along with innovations such as the introduction of asphaltene and paraffin-based dispersants that allow an uninterrupted flow of liquid through pipelines. Further, continual developments in automotive and infrastructure sectors are also expected to enhance the demand of dispersing agents specifically in the paints and coating industry. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global dispersing agents market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2021-2026.
