Drying Agents Market

Drying Agents Market: Global Industry Trend Analysis 2013 to 2017 and Forecast 2018 - 2028

Drying Agents Market Segmented By Material Type such as Zeolite, Silica Gel, Alumina, Calcium Salts, Magnesium Sulfate, Sodium Sulfate, Others with Grade such as Food Grade and Industrial Grade


Drying agents often refer as a desiccant is an inorganic material used for the absorption process in numerous applications & end user industries. Drying agents are hygroscopic in nature and tends to absorb moisture from the vicinity atmosphere.

Attributes like high polarity provides the ability to dissolve or absorb the significant amount of water molecules. With this ability of absorbing moisture, drying agents helps in reducing the humidity from the atmosphere which in turn protects the goods or material from moisture & degradation.

Drying agents are often work on the principal of physical absorption which works on trapping the water molecules inside their interstitial voids & capillaries. However sometimes drying agents undergo chemical absorption which includes the reaction of the drying agents with the moisture to form a new mixture. Ideally the drying agents are chemically inert & chemically stable.

But in some application such as in chemistry lab drying agents often shows less efficacy as they come directly into the contact with solvents & strong chemicals.

In a commercial market place there are different types of drying agents comes up with different form, size and grades tailor made according to fulfill the unmet needs of the numerous applications. Drying agents are playing pivotal role in industries such as food & beverages and pharmaceutical by keeping their product intact from the moisture and keeping the environment desirable for the products during transportation and shipping activities.

Some more industries where drying agent find adoption are construction, chemical processing, electrical & electronics and consumer goods.

Drying Agents Market: Market Dynamics

With its exceptional ability to undergo absorption and absorb moisture from the surrounding environment helps the drying agent to turn over as a choice of material to be suitable for numerous number of applications. This roadmap of getting adopted in numerous number of industries of the drying agent is expected to be witness over the forecast period.

Drying agents are predominantly consumed more in application likes electronics, pharmaceutical, food to name a few where the goods are vulnerable towards water & moisture attack which results in degradation and loose its efficacy.

Expansion of these industries is expected to create the demand space for the drying agents in the near future. Also, effective transportation activities for the food & pharmaceutical products is expected to create the huge demand levels for drying agents.

Changing consumer preferences & shift towards the usage of packaged food is expected to create the opportunities for the drying agent’s manufacturers to grow. Moreover many of the major manufacturers are focusing towards the penetration of their drying agents based products which may further creates the market space for drying agent markets.

Practically the chemical absorption is more effective than the physical on. But the high cost associated with the formulation of chemical absorption based drying agents is providing the demand space for physical absorption based drying agents. However, when drying agent comes with a contact of human body it absorbs water from the human body which may further cause severe ill effects. In order to avoid this outcome special packaging is required for drying agents
