Global Coalescing Agent Market: Overview

Strict regulations imposed by government that prohibits the use of conventional solvents and additives that are toxic have led the demand for coalescing agent. Coalescing agent used as an additive to reduce the minimum film formation temperature this results in optimize film coherence and improve properties such as abrasion resistance, scrub resistance, appearance, and mechanical properties.

Moreover, rising demand for environment-friendly coalescing agent that supported the growth of hydrophilic will also help the market to attract huge attention. Growing application of coalescing agent in, inks, paints & coatings personal care ingredient, adhesive & sealants, and others is also driving demand in this market.

Various other parameters including segmentation, regional growth, strategies adopted by companies also contributes in the growth of the global coalescing agent market.  Ongoing trends and recent developments are also contributing in expanding demand for coalescing agent.
