A new study by Transparency Market Research (TMR) identifies AkzoNobel N.V., BASF SE., Cytec Industries Inc., Croda Internationalplc., ClariantAG, and ArkemaS.A, as the top six companies in the global anti-static agents market. These companies accounted for a larger market share of 52.5% in 2014. This has rendered the market’s competitive landscape highly consolidated.
Sales of anti-static agents is increasing in response to the rising demand for plastics in the packaging industry. The increasing requirement of functional additives has bolstered the applications of plastics in the packaging industry. Since, anti-static agents are usually coated on plastic substrates or are incorporated during plastic processing, the rising demand for plastics translates into high sales prospects for anti-static agents
Besides this, plastics are also used to manufacture both interior and exterior parts of any vehicle. Furthermore the analyst added, “Their increasing application in the production of electronic commodities such as mobile casings, household appliances, and computers will fuel opportunities for the anti-static agents market.”

Despite witnessing favorable growth, volatility in raw material prices will adversely impact the anti-static agent market’s trajectory. The slow recovery of various upstream and downstream anti-static agent markets post global economic meltdown limits the sales of anti-static agents. The price fluctuation of raw materials derived from petrochemicals is also likely to dampen the market’s growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, stringent regulations imposed on the usage of plastics will threaten growth prospects of the anti-static agents market. The countries across North America and Europe have stringent regulations in place ensuring limited exposure to the harmful emissions of raw materials. The nations in Asia Pacific however observe a more lenient approach. The prevailing regulatory scenario is expected to have a profound effect on the overall productivity of anti-static agents across the world.
Nevertheless, the plastics and petrochemicals plants have witnessed remarkable growth in the Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. The government support and abundance oil resources in developing countries across these regions will bode well for sellers of anti-static agents. In terms of demand, the Middle East is expected to demonstrate significant opportunities for sales of anti-static agents required as key additives to improve the quality of finished plastics. Additionally, the technological developments witnessed in Asia Pacific will also fuel sales of anti-static agents in the near future.
