NEW YORK, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anti-static agents are used as plastic additives to minimize static buildup on a plastic substrate. Ethoxylated alkamines, quaternary ammonium salts, alkylsulfonate, and fatty acid esters are key product segments of the global anti-static agents market. These functional agents are extensively consumed in various plastic processing applications. Polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), high density polyethylene (HDPE), and polystyrene (PS) are few of the major application segments of the global anti-static agents market. Polypropylene (PP) was the largest application segment of the anti-static agents market in 2014. However, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) are expected to create significant growth opportunities for the anti-static agents market during the forecast period. Rising usage of bio-based resources are likely to be potential substitutes for anti-static agents,derived from petrochemicals, by the end of 2023.
The report estimates and forecasts the anti-static agents market on the global, regional, and country level. The study provides forecast from 2015 to 2023 based on volume (Tons) and revenue (US$ Thousand).
The study offers a comprehensive view of the anti-static agents market by dividing it into product segments such as ethoxylated alkamines, alkylsulfonate, fatty acid esters, quaternary ammonium salts, and others. In terms of application, the global anti-static agents market has been segmented into polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and others. Application segments have been analyzed based on historic, present, and future trends, and the market has been estimated from 2015 to 2023 in terms of volume (Tons) and revenue (US$ Thousand). Regional segmentation includes current and forecast demand for anti-static agents in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA).
Additionally, the report includes country-level analysis in terms of volume and revenue for product and application segments. Key countries such as the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China, India, Brazil, South Africa, as well as ASEAN and GCC are incorporated in the study. Market segmentation includes demand for individual products and applications in all regions and countries.
The report comprises a comprehensive value chain analysis that provides a broad view of the market. Value chain analysis also provides detailed information about value addition at each stage of the value chain. The report covers drivers and restraints for the anti-static agents market along with their impact on demand during the forecast period. Additionally, it includes the study of opportunities in the anti-static agents market at the global level.
The report includes Porter's Five Forces Model to gauge the degree of competition in the anti-static agents market. The report encompasses a qualitative write-up on market attractiveness analysis, wherein applications have been analyzed based on attractiveness. Growth rate, market size, raw material availability, profit margin, impact strength, technology, competition, and other factors (such as environmental and legal) have been evaluated to derive general attractiveness of the market. The report includes price trend analysis of raw materials (fatty acids, ethylene oxide, and amines) and anti-static agents from 2014 to 2023.
