Indian Optical Brightening Agents Market is Supported by the Asia Pacific Optical Brightening Agents Industry, Which is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.7% During 2021-2026, Driven by Rapid Industrialisation in India

According to a new report by EMR titled, 'Indian Optical Brightening Agents Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026', the Indian market for optical brightening agents, which is supported by the growth of Asia Pacific optical brightening agents industry, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The main user of fluorescent brighteners is the detergent industry. Clothes lose their whiteness gradually, over time. In detergents, optical brightening agents are usually used to maintain whiteness and maximise the total visibility of the cloth by moving colours from low density to high density. In India, the growing demand for fluorescent whitening agents from various applications, such as teeth whitening, textiles, detergents, cloth softeners, and paper whitening, has given a major boost to the industry demand for optical brightening agents. The upcoming development programmes in the chemical industry would lead to the product's business growth. The paper industry is the largest application segment for optical brightening agents, sharing 60% of the overall demand, globally.

The market growth is boosted by the growing competition among the key industry players, such as BASF SA (ETR: BAS) and Deepak Nitrite Ltd.
