The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Optical Brighteners Market would witness market growth of 6.95% CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2025).

The main chemical forms of optical brighteners available in the global optical brighteners market are coumarin, Stilbene, diphenyl pyrazoline, and others. The other types of chemicals are cinnamic acid and dicarboxylic acid. The stilbene category holds a significant market share, emitting blue rays and supplying fabrics of effective brightness. Stilbene also provides good resistance to thermals and chemicals. As a result, the fluorescent effect remains longer than other chemicals for a longer duration. Stilbene is the first chemical to be used as an optical brightener as well. Therefore, optical brightener manufacturers recommend chemical stilbene.

Optical brighteners are also called as optical brightening agents or fluorescent whitening agents. These are chemical compounds that absorb light in the electromagnetic spectrum’s ultraviolet region; these re-emit light in the blue region with the help of fluorescence. Optical brighteners are applied by the whitening effect to enhance the appearance of paper and fabric.

In laundry detergents, optical brighteners are usually used to improve the appearance of clothes. They can also be used in cosmetics and high brightness papers. Several modern eyes and face powder products contain microspheres of optical brightener that help brighten dark areas of the skin. The paper industry requires bleaching as much as the textile industry needs it. The textile industry uses optical brighteners to achieve completely white papers since raw material contains impurities like scraps of bamboo sticks and wood.

Growth in industries like chemicals, paper, and textiles is responsible for the high demand for products, and this pattern is projected to continue over the forecast period. Market expansion is also fuelled by upcoming development projects in different countries in the chemical industry. A decline in oil prices led to fluctuations in the prices of raw materials and market volatility. Due to this trend, resellers and consumers of optical brighteners have experienced a reduction in margins.
