Matting Agents Market worth 579.9 Million USD by 2022

matting agents market

The global market for matting agents is projected to reach USD 579.9 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. The global matting agents market is witnessing growth on account of the increasing applications in the Asia-Pacific region, mainly in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and India.

The popularity of matte and ultra-matte finishes is increasing over the past few years. Excellent resistance properties and durability in the coatings in comparison to those of gloss finishes has resulted in an increase in demand for the matte and ultra-matte finishes. Matte finishes cover imperfections in surface applications and have a comparatively higher resistance to scratches over glossy finishes.

Silica is the material majorly used to provide matte finishes. Silica is available in both, the natural form as well as synthetic form. Silica differ by their particle size distribution, surface area, crystalline property, and density. Silica provides relatively higher efficiency as compared to other matting additives. This is expected to benefit the growth of the silica-based matting agents market during the next five years.
