Dispersing agents are surface active or non surface active polymers that are added to a suspension or colloid to prevent settling or clumping of particles. They help in breaking down petroleum oil into smaller droplets. Dispersing agents may be surfactants or gases. Environmental factors such as water salinity and temperature influence the effectiveness of dispersants. These agents have a wide range of applications in automotives, concrete, detergents, bio-dispersing, surface coating and oil drilling industries among others.

Production of dispersing agents is expected to be a growing trend on account of its applications in various industries. For instance, they are added to lubricating oils in automotive engines to prevent dust deposition on engine walls. In addition, they are used in concrete mix to plasticize the mixture. Furthermore, they are used in detergents and process industries for preventing unwanted deposits by helping them disperse finely. In oil spills, these agents disperse into water and help clear oil from the water surface making the oil slick less likely to reach the shoreline.
The growing demand for end-user industries such as paper, oil, agriculture and pharmaceutical are expected to drive the dispersing agents market as they are extensively used in various aspects of these industries. In addition, rise in construction activities is expected to drive the demand for dispersing agents in construction and paints & coatings industry over the next few years. The shift from solvent based systems towards water based systems helps in reducing volatile organic compound (VOCs) emissions in the environment creating a huge demand for dispersing agents. This parameter is expected to act as a potential driver for the dispersing agents market. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand for these agents in the oil & gas industry. However, fluctuation in raw material prices may hamper the demand for dispersing agents over the next few years. The use of dispersing agents in emerging economies such as India and China on account of rising infrastructure activities and automobile industry is expected to open new avenues for the dispersing agents market within the forecast period. New product development is expected to be another opportunity for the dispersing agent market in the near future.
The global dispersing agent market is expected to witness a substantial growth on account of the growth of the construction and paints industry. Furthermore, pulp & paper, detergents, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals and agriculture are some of the other end-user industries which have a potentially high demand for dispersing agents. These industries are expected exhibit a high growth within the forecast period which in turn is expected to drive the dispersing agents market.
