Matting Agents Market: Overview
Matting agents are fine particles which when added to the coatings & paints formulations, provide with a low-gloss, low-sheen, satin, matt-finish to the surface on which the paints & coatings are applied. Silica matting agents are the majorly used matting agents. The other types of matting agents include thermoplastic and wax-based matting agents, the market for which is currently at a preliminary stage. Abundant supply of silica as raw material for silica matting agents ensures maximum production and consumption of silica matting agents. Silica matting agents dominated the matting agents market in 2016, and is anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Asia Pacific dominated the matting agents market in terms of volume and revenue, and is likely to do the same during the period of forecast.
Increasing use of matting agents for industrial and architectural coatings is one of the factors for anticipated increase in the demand for matting agents. Also, the growing awareness about benefits of low-glare, matt finish is anticipated to drive the demand for matting agents during the forecast period. Due, to several environmental considerations, the regulatory authorities and the market players are emphasizing more on use of water-based technologies, in order to have less volatile organic compound emissions. Water-based technologies are anticipated to witness an increase in its market share by 2025.
