Forecast on Matting Agents Market for the Period 2017 - 2027

Posted by Chhidami on November 22nd, 2017

Matting effect is a property that depends upon the intensity of light reflexion and a subjective impression identified by our senses. With several coating applications, the preference for matte finishes in the market is enormous, due to which different matting agents and methods exist for indoor as well as outdoor durable powder coatings. Matting effect relies on the shape of the matting agent & particle size and most efficient formulators, such as waxes and silica depend on the desired effect and paint application. Matte finishes are produced to achieve an application of a low-gloss coating and are more cost-effective. The matte aspect of paint similarly depends on the formulation of its Pigment Volume Concentration (PVC), which is raised to lower the glossiness.

Matting agents used in coatings increase antiglare properties in end products and offer temperature and corrosion resistance. Matting agent manufacturers are more focused towards reducing the organic solvent content from paint and coating formulations, owing to rising environmental concerns and to match the particle with dry film thickness. Growing awareness and popularity of matte finishing in developed and emerging nations, coupled with the growing construction industry, are projected to drive the global matting agents market during the forecast period.
