Sizing & Thickening Agents - Market Size, Market Share, Market Leaders, Demand Forecast, Sales, Company Profiles, Market Research, Industry Trends
The US market for sizing and thickening agents will grow five percent annually through 2006. Foods and beverages and paper and paperboard production -- the two largest markets -- will both grow at above-average rates. Hydrocolloids, synthetic polymers and other multifunctional thickeners will outpace commodity products such as clays and starches.
This study analyzes the $4.4 billion US sizing and thickening agent industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., starches, rosin, polyvinyl chloride, styrene, alkenyl succinic anhydride, alkyl ketene dimer, clays, silicas, cellulose thickeners, gums, gelatin, alginates, carrageenan, pectin); and by market.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 51 companies active in the industry including Hercules, CP Kelco, Archer-Daniels-Midland, FMC, and Cargill.
