Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958361


The Flatting Agents Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to its properties such as flatting efficiency, ease of dispersion and heat stability.

A flatting agent is an additive substance that is added to paints or varnishes to disperse incident light rays to give the dried surface a non-glossy matte finish. These flatting agents help in reducing the gloss of paints, varnishes, lacquers, and other finishes while providing lower viscosity and a better stir-in capability,

Segment Analysis:

On the basis of material, it is divided into silica, waxes, thermoplastics, and others. Although traditionally, waxes were widely used, they are now being replaced by silica as silica is more economical and provides a much better viscosity and high porosity when compared to waxes.

By technology, it is segregated into water-based, solvent-based, radiation cure, high solids, powder. The water-based is mostly preferred as they are easy to handle.

On the basis of application, it is segmented into industrial, architectural, leather, wood, printing inks, and others. The growth of architectural and printing inks sectors have positively impacted the market.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Its properties such as flatting efficiency, ease of dispersion and heat stability.

  • It is non-toxic in nature

  • Growth of the architectural and printing inks market
