Silica-Based Matting Agents Market, By Type (Precipitated Silica, Fumed Silica, Silica Gel, Natural

Published Date: | Report Code : CH2043883

X

The Silica-Based Matting Agents Market is expected to promise high growth owing to increasing demand for consumer preferences for matte surfaces in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including industrial coatings, wood coatings, automotive coatings, architectural coatings, and others is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Matting agents help tone down the gloss of the surface on which they are used. These matting agents are fine particles that are dispersed in coating products so that they scatter the light falling on the surface in the desired manner. This helps achieve matte finish or reduce the gloss of the surface on which they are applied.

Segment Insights

Silica as a matting agent is used more in comparison with others, as it is much more efficient and re-coating is also possible. The silica-based matting agents market has been segmented on the basis of type, technology, and application. Based on type, the silica-based matting agents market has been divided into precipitated silica, fumed silica, silica gel, natural silica, and others. Precipitated silica is used more due to it being non-toxic and versatile.

Based on technology, the market has been segmented into water-based, solvent-based, and others. Water-based solvents are used as paints and various coating formulations. Moreover, their eco-friendly characteristic is a major growth driver for this segment. Based on the application, the market has been segmented into industrial coatings, wood coatings, automotive coatings, architectural coatings, and others. Due to consumer preferences for matte products, the application in wood and architectural segments is growing.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Consumer preferences for matte surfaces
  • Growth of end-use industries
