Anti-static agents, also referred to as anti-stats are integrated in a polymer to decrease the upsurge of static charges. These agents are made of hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions, same as those of a surfactant. Some of these include polyethylene glycol, phosphate esters and polyethylene glycol esters.
The anti-static agents market is expanding, owing to developments in the industries of consumers. Furthermore, growing utilization of anti-static agents by the developing Latin American and Asian Pacific markets is ready to propel the market ahead.
However, the existence of alternatives, policies of the government and unevenness in the costs of raw materials act as major restraints to this market. Asia Pacific dominates the worldwide anti-static agents market with regards to consumption.
