Antifog Additives Market Research, 2031

The global antifog additives market was valued at $397.2 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $619.8 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2022 to 2031.

Antifog additives are organic compounds that reduce the surface tension of water, which helps in preventing the formation of water droplets on the plastic surface. The antifog additive are employed extensively to overcome the formation of fogging in the food and beverages sector. It is widely used in the production of polymer films for inducing the antifogging property in them. It has a wide range of applications in various end-use industries, such as agriculture, food and packing, plastic industry, automobile, glass, and others.

The utilization of antifog additive has increased in the agriculture sector owing to rise in population, government initiation & investment in this sector, and increased focus towards agriculture industry. The antifog additives are mainly used in green houses in the form of films, which reduces the formation of fog, improves light transmission, and enhances the crop productivity by maintaining favorable conditions. This is anticipated to drive the growth of antifog additives products in the market.
