The presence of fog on the surface of clean plastics used in the packaging of food is very common. This fog is appeared on the surface of the plastic due to the condensation of water vapor on it. An antifog additive is a non-ionic surfactant that helps in lowering the surface tensions. The additive is added to the packaging film at the extrusion phase in the form of concentrates. The additives migrate to the surface as they are incompatible with polymers. The additives help in reducing the surface tension of the water droplets and the surface of the plastic packaging that leads to the uniform spread out of the water and improves the transparency of the plastic film and eliminates the fogging. The new innovations and ideas for the applications of antifog additives are likely to expand the market to a significant extend globally.
The antifog additives market is assumed to grow in the forecast considering the increasing income of the middle-class population in the emerging economies. The low-cost production of antifog additives due to the easy availability of raw materials and low laborers and the growth of food packaging and food processing sectors has boosted the growth of the antifog additives market. However, the constricted applications and the dependency on the agricultural and food packaging films might restrict the growth of the antifog additives market. On the other hand, the innovations of antifog additives in newer applications are likely to showcase growth opportunities for the antifog additives market during the forecast period.
