Anti-fog additives are non-ionic surfactants used to reduce the fog formation on the plastic films or sheets. Fog formation takes place due to the condensation of vapors on the surface because of the difference between temperature, humidity, or surface tension. The additives help minimize the surface tension of the droplets present on the sheets formed by the condensation of the water vapors. Anti-fog additives lessen the clouding effect and improve the transparency of the sheets. Anti-fog additives are used either in master batches or concentrates during the plastic film production. They are used in packaging of foods and beverages to increase the shelf life and product appeal.
The anti-fog additives market is a growing market driven by the increased growth in food processing and packaging industries. North America leads the market followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe due to the strategic developments such as product launch and increased R&D activities in the emerging economies. The major factor that drives the anti-fog additives market is the cost-effective production of the additives and increased demand from the food & packaging industry. However, factors such as stringent government rules and environmental issues related to plastic usage are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
