Global Paper Dry Strength Agent Market Information-by Type (Polyvinyl amine, Polyacrylamide, Glyoxylted Polyacrylamide, Starch Based Polymers, Amphoteric Polymers and others), and by Region – Forecast till 2023
Synopsis of Paper Dry Strength Agent Market
Paper dry strength agent acts as additives in paper manufacturing providing strength to paper along with tear and bust strength. Dry strength agent increases the internal bond formation, wax pick values, folding endurance and stiffness. These agents can be available in two forms such as natural dry agents and synthetic dry agents. In natural dry agents it is further sub-segmented into starch and Guar Gum. Whereas, synthetic dry agents is sub-segmented as polyvinylamine, polyacrylamide (PAM), poly aminoamide eipchlorohydrin (PAE), glyoxylated polyacrylamide (GPAM) and amphoteric polymer.

The global paper dry strength agent market is expected to reach USD 90,548.7 million in 2023 with CAGR of 3.505 owing to several factors such as increasing paper demand from developing economies. The development of the China’s pulp and paper industry is drawing increasing interest among scholars, policy makers, and international producers. Chinese paper and paperboard production ranked second in the world, on the other hand, India has also been highest consumer of paper due to growth in literary, changing lifestyle and increasing consciousness for personal hygiene. Thus, the paper dry strength agent in developing economies will be highest benefited owing to swift from plastic to paper in packaging industries.
Moreover, increasing recycled paper and filler content drives the demand for chemicals. Currently, the recycling rate has increased to 65% in U.S. However in Europe, the recycling of paper is termed as waste management. The recycling of paper in Europe has been steadily climbing overtime. With increasing production innovation in dry strength agents can provide lucrative opportunities to players in the market. However, fluctuation in power cost along with replacement of paper with advanced technology can hamper the market growth.
