Report Description

Rheology modifiers are used in various applications to control the rheological profiles through modification of viscosity. Their major applications include paints & coatings, cosmetics & personal care, adhesives & sealants, inks, pharmaceuticals, HI&I products, oil & gas, and construction. Paints & coatings comprise the largest application of rheology modifiers, followed by cosmetics & personal care. Asia-Pacific is the largest market for paints & coatings application of rheology modifiers, followed by Europe. The market for cosmetics & personal care application of rheology modifiers is projected to witness the highest growth among all applications because of changing lifestyles and increase in purchasing power of people in developing countries which is driving the demand for cosmetic products which employ rheology modifiers.
