Global Naphthalene Sulfonate Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period, 2018–2025

“Naphthalene Sulfonate Market”
Naphthalene sulfonates are derivatives of sulfonic acid with a naphthalene group. They are available in solution or powder form and can be treated with different chemical agents to perform different functions.

From the past few years, an increased need for better and efficient dispersants for cement and concrete admixtures in the building and construction industry has surfaced. Naphthalene sulfonate is being increasingly used to facilitate homogeneous mixing of ingredients in cement mixtures. Furthermore, the use of naphthalene sulfonate in pesticides, which are used in agricultural activities has increased recently. The surface modifying properties of naphthalene sulfonate are being effectively utilized in the detergents, dyes, pigments, and textile industry to improve the aesthetic look of products.

The global naphthalene sulfonate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period.
