Global Optical Brightening Agents Outlook

Rapid growth in textiles and cosmetics across the globe has driven the demand for optical brightening agents. Introduction of new optical brightening agents having better compatibility with recycled fibres is also expected to aid the recycled fibre industry. These factors are key to the projected growth of the global optical brightening agents’ market at a CAGR of about 2% during the period 2020-2025. Rise in demand for paper with greater aesthetic charm is anticipated to further drive the market in the years to come.

Properties and Applications:

Optical brightening agents, also known as fluorescent brightening agents, are chemicals employed in manufacturing plastics, fibres, coatings, inks and detergents; they absorb light in the ultraviolet and violet region of the electromagnetic spectrum and give out light in the blue region. Further, greater acceptance of chemical optical brightening agents (based on coumarin, stilbene, cinnamic acid, diphenyl pyrazoline, dicarboxylic acid, etc.) in developing nations has been observed. Brightening agents are added to detergents to give clothes a cleaner appearance; ordinarily cleaned clothes appear yellowish, which is not liked by consumers.

Brightening agents are used in high brightness paper to give it a strong, fluorescent appearance under ultraviolet light.

Formerly, bluing was used for the same purpose but came to be replaced by modern optical brightening agents. Brighteners add to the detergent value and can also be used as fabric softeners. They are also used as bleaches. The detergent and cleaning sector have been the key drivers of the optical brightening agents’ market.

Applications of optical brightening agents have extended to the security sector also. Bank notes and labels now have fluorescence to distinguish them from counterfeit notes. Only a small number of di- and tetra-sulfonated triazole-stilbenes, and one di-sulfonated stilbene-biphenyl derivative dominate the global optical brightening agent production for detergents, paper and textiles.

Global Optical Brightening Agents: Market Analysis

This report analyses the global market by the following regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

Asia Pacific is expected to experience robust growth at a CAGR of nearly 5%. Nations such as China and India should drive the market owing to rapid industrialization, growing manufacturing activities, and rising population with its demand for higher standards of living. While Middle East and Africa, and Latin America are anticipated to witness significant growth, markets in Europe and North America should see slow growth. Saturation of the paper industry in Europe and North America has caused paper mill shutdowns over the years, but the soaps and detergent sector should contribute to market growth.

The detergent industry is anticipated to be the largest consumer of optical brightening agents. Cosmetics, paper, textiles and plastics would also be key consumers.

The following factors, however, may hinder market growth:

Decreased demand due to allergic reactions when brightening agents come in direct contact with skin.

  • High production costs.
  • Environmental concerns and regulatory standards.
  • Search for alternatives such as non-stilbene brighteners.
  • Competitive Landscape

The report presents a detailed analysis of the following key players covering their capacities, market share and latest turn of events such as mergers and acquisitions, capacity expansions and plant turnarounds in the global optical brightening agents market:

  • Huntsman Corporation
  • BASF SE
  • Clariant
  • Evonik Industries AG
  • Tsaker Chemical Group Ltd.
