Matting Agents Market by Material (Silica, Waxes, Thermoplastics), Technology (Water-Based, Solvent-Based, Radiation Cure and High Solids, Powder), Application (Industrial, Architectural, Leather, Wood, Printing Inks), Region – Global Forecast to 2022
Silica led the matting agents market
Silica is the majorly used material to achieve the matte finish across all applications. Modern synthetic silica gels are highly porous, and this porosity is therefore able to provide a high quality matte finish. These are also non-hazardous to the environment in both, their chemical and physical properties. Silica accounted for the largest share of the matting agents market in 2016.
Demand for matting agents manufactured by using water-based technology is expected witness the fastest growth during the forecast period
Growing awareness among end-use consumers regarding the adverse effects of the solvent-based technology is expected to benefit the growth of the water-based coatings technology. The water-based coatings technology is expected to witness the fastest growth in terms of market value from 2017 to 2022. The water-based technology has captured a major market share of the solvent-based technology in many applications owing to the minimal to zero percent organic solvents in formulations.

Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer of matting agents
The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market of matting agents, in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America. The growth can be attributed to the rapidly increasing consumption of matting agents in architectural coatings in countries such as Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Growing awareness of the benefits of antiglare properties on the surfaces of coatings is expected to further benefit the growth of the matting agents market over the next five years in the Asia-Pacific region. Rising income levels in these countries are also expected play a pivotal role in driving the market in the decorative paints market.
