Global Antistatic Agents Market: Overview
Antistatic agents are mainly used to reduce or eliminate the static charge generated in the materials or their surfaces. These are used to make the polymeric materials conductive. These agents have various applications in the end-use industries such as electronics, industrial packaging, coatings, and military jet fuels.
Global Antistatic Agents Market: Growth Factors
The increasing demand for the antistatic agents in the various industries such as the packaging, electronics, textiles, and jet fuel industry due the rising demand for the electronic, packaged, textile products, and high-performance fuel drives the growth of the global antistatic agents market. The cationic fixed additive for the inkjet paper coating is expected to fuel the global market. The use of the antistatic agents in the foams utilized for the bedding, automotive seats, and furniture purposes also further attributes the growth of the global market. The easy availability of the substitutes for the antistatic agent production hampers the global antistatic market growth. The stringent government regulation and a decline in the oil and gas prices in the different regions across the globe hinder the global market.
