Market Overview:

The global organic dispersants market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for paints and coatings, pulp and paper, detergents, oil and gas, and other applications across the globe. In terms of type, the global organic dispersants market is segmented into oligomer organic dispersants and polymer organic dispersants. The oligomer organic dispersant segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR than the polymer organic dispersant segment during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to its properties such as high solubility in water and good wetting ability that make it suitable for use in various applications such as paints & coatings, pulp & paper, detergents, oil & gas among others.

Global Organic Dispersants Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Organic dispersants are chemicals that are used to disperse organic matter in water. This is important because it helps to break down the organic matter and makes it easier to treat and remove.

Oligomer Organic Dispersants:

Oligomer organic dispersants are low molecular weight compounds that are used as stabilizers in oil-water emulsions. They also have applications in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

Polymer Organic Dispersants:

Polymer organic dispersants are used as additives in organic dispersants. They help to improve the suspension of solid particles and prevent agglomeration. Polymer organic dispersion is a stable dispersion of polymer and its derivatives in water or oil with the aid of surfactant, polyethersulfone, alkylphenol ethoxylates, etc.

Application Insights:

Paints & coatings emerged as the largest application segment and accounted for over 30% of the global demand in 2017. Rising construction activities across emerging economies, such as China, India and Brazil are expected to drive product demand in this application segment. In addition, growing environmental concerns regarding VOC emissions from conventional paints is expected to promote the use of GODs which have low VOC content.

Detergents emerged as another key application area for GOND which accounts for over 15% of total market volume in 2017 owing to rising consumer awareness regarding environment preservation coupled with increasing focus on hygiene maintenance worldwide. Moreover, stringent government regulations against toxic chemicals in detergents are anticipated to further drive product demand over next eight years especially during 2019 - 2030 period when global population is projected reach 9 TeraByte (TB) from 7 TB currently estimated according to United Nations (UN).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for nearly 60% of global GDP and has been witnessing strong economic growth on account of rapid industrialization, urbanization, and development of infrastructure. Growing construction activities in emerging economies such as China, India, Indonesia have resulted in increased demand for paints & coatings products which are majorly organic based. This trend is projected to continue over the coming years thereby driving product consumption across this region.

North America accounted for a significant share followed by Europe owing to growing oilfield services industry particularly within U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries: The organic dispersants market is witnessing a rise in demand from various end-use industries such as paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and printing inks. This is owing to the increasing awareness among consumers about the benefits of using organic dispersants over conventional ones.
  • Growing environmental concerns: The use of conventional dispersants has been linked with environmental concerns such as water pollution. This has led to an increase in the adoption of organic dispersants, which are environment-friendly and do not cause any harm to aquatic life or humans.
  • Rising R&D investments: Key players in the organic dispersants market are investing heavily in R&D activities to develop new and innovative products that can cater to the specific needs of different end-use industries. This is helping them stay ahead of their competitors and expand their customer base further.
