Key Highlights of Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers Market
The global hindered amine light stabilizers market was valued at US$ 818.26 Mn in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of approximately ~5% during the forecast period
Hindered amine light stabilizers are widely used in plastics, paints, coatings, adhesives, and sealants, as they prevent cracking and chalking of paints. When combined, UV absorbers and hindered amine light stabilizers offer synergistic effects and simplicity of formulation. Hindered amine light stabilizers protect resins in adhesives and sealants, such as epoxy, polyurethane, and PVC, from the loss of mechanical performance caused by degradation due to light, thereby enhancing durability.
Key Drivers of Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers Market
Paints and coatings are widely employed for decorative purposes. When used for decorative purposes, they improve durability and appearance of the surface. They protect surfaces from environmental conditions, weathering, rust, and chemicals. Hindered amine light stabilizers trap free radicals to maintain surface properties such as gloss and prevent cracking and chalking of paints.
In order to prevent degradation of paints and coatings, yellowing, and chalking caused by UV light, UV absorbers are used along with hindered amine light stabilizers (HALSs) to effectively maintain paint gloss and enhance weather resistance
The global paints & coatings market is primarily driven by advancements in the building & construction industry. Rise in the number of commercial buildings across the globe is anticipated to propel the global industry for paint & coatings in the near future. These coatings are primarily used in decoration items such as wood flooring, wall painting, furniture, and sculptures. The global paint & coatings industry is estimated to expand significantly, owing to reconstruction and renovations activities in the construction sector. Thus, growth of the global paints & coatings industry is likely to propel the global HALS market during the forecast period.
Plastics to Offer Lucrative Opportunities to Hindered Amine Light Stabilizers Market
Among applications, plastics was the most rapidly expanding segment of the global hindered amine light stabilizers market in 2018. The segment is expected to maintain its attractiveness throughout the forecast period, due to wide compatibility of plastics when used in the packaging of food and beverage products.
Polymeric hindered amine light stabilizers are used to protect a wide range of substrates from UV radiations. These are primarily used to protect the core of materials such as paints, coatings, and adhesives. They are also excellent light stabilizers for systems containing carbon black. They are available in forms such as free-flowing beads and powder. Polymeric hindered amine light stabilizers exhibit higher thermal stability and better extraction resistance.
