Widening Application of Rheological Modifiers to Boost Growth
Rheology modifiers are the type of additives which helps to improve the structural properties of fluids. These are mainly used in the manufacture of ink, paints, and coatings. These additives also improve the sag resistance and viscosity of the fluids which can improve its flexibility and performance. Addition of rheological modifiers in the fluids can improve its shelf life; thus, the adoption of the modifiers are increasing across the manufacturing of paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, and adhesives & sealants. This growing adoption is influencing positively on the growth of the global market for rheology modifiers.
Moreover, the rheology modifiers market is gaining traction from widening applications of rheology modifiers across the industries such as homecare institutional & industrial products (hi&i) products in construction, pharmaceuticals, automotive, and oil & gas. The organic modifiers have higher demand from cosmetic and personal care industry. The growing concerns over the harmful effects of the chemical-based products are fuelling demand for the organic products which in turn is driving the growth of the rheology modifiers market.
Unique Properties of Rheological Modifiers to Offer Growth Opportunities
Despite these growth opportunities, the swift changes in digital media and declining demand for publication houses are limiting growth of the global rheology modifiers market. Additionally, some stringent regulations in order to save environment are likely to increase the cost of the research and development (R&D) which is likely to restrain growth of the market.
Nevertheless, some of the modifiers with the properties of anti-sagging, levelling, and stabilizing emulsion are finding application in paint & coatings, and personal care products. While the products xanthan gum, polyurethane, guar gum, and other organic rheology modifiers find application in other industries due to their effectiveness in production. Growing consumption of rheological modifiers in the personal care industry is creating lucrative opportunities for growth in the global rheological modifiers market.
