This factor has thus provided a huge hindrance in an overall growth of the dispersing agent market. In addition to this, the presence of time-honored technologies also affects the production and efficiency of dispersing agents. At present, the impact of these factors is relatively high. However, emerging economies and innovations in products will create growth opportunities for the dispersing agents in the near future.

Companies that produce or plan to produce dispersing agents in the near future opt for new product developments by undertaking increased investments in R&D activities. The dispersing agents market is fragmented, and consists of a number of small and large chemical companies. The top eight players occupy about 50% of the total market share and the remaining market is captured by a large number of companies, each having quite a small share.
