Photoinitiators Market: Highlights

  • Photoinitiator is a compound that undergoes a photoreaction on absorption of light, producing reactive species. It is capable of initiating or catalyzing chemical reactions that result in significant changes in the solubility and physical properties of suitable formulations. Thus, photoinitiator is a compound that can transform the physical energy of light into suitable chemical energy in the form of reactive intermediates.
  • There are two classes of photoinitiators: type I and type II. Type I photoinitiators undergo unimolecular bond cleavage that provides reactive species after the absorption of light. No other species are necessary for these photoinitiators to work. Type II photoinitiators undergo a bimolecular reaction. After absorption of light, the photoinitiator reaches excited state, thus helping them to react with another molecule (co-initiator or synergist) to create the reactive species.
  • Photoinitiators are primarily used for applications that require high purity, UV transparency, and low residue on evaporation

Key Drivers of Photoinitiators Market

  • Easy operation, formulation, and speed are some of the factors that are driving the photoinitiators market
  • Easy storage and better stability property are other factors anticipated to boost the demand for photoinitiators during the forecast period.
  • Increase in usage of photoinitiators in end-use industries is also estimated to propel the photoinitiators market in the near future.

Negative Impact Caused by Camphorquinone (CQ) Element Expected to Restrain Photoinitiators Market

  • Negative impact caused by camphorquinone (CQ) element, a major component of photoinitiator, is anticipated to hamper the market in the near future. Toxicity, low efficiency of polymerization, and compromise in the esthetics of dental composite restoration are some of the disadvantages of CQ element used in photoinitiators. This compromise of esthetics for dental composite restoration majorly occurs due to the effect of residual and un-reacted molecules of CQ.

Photoinitiators Market: Application Segment

  • Based on application, the global photoinitiators market can be segmented into paints, inks, adhesives, and others.
  • The paints segment is projected to account for major share of the global photoinitiators market during the forecast period.
