UV Stabilizers Industry Segmentation

UV stabilizers prevent a chemical process called "photo-degradation," which occurs when ultraviolet radiation collapses chemical bonds within a polymer. UV stabilizers generally act by absorbing the radiation coming from UV light and then dispersing the energy into heat at low levels. The UV stabilizer market is segmented by type, end-user industry, and geography. Further, by type, the market is segmented into UV absorbers, hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS), quenchers, and antioxidants. By end-user sector, the market is segmented into packaging, automotive, agriculture, building and construction, adhesives and sealants, and other end-user industries. The report also covers the market size and forecasts for the adhesives and sealants market in 15 countries across major regions. For each segment, market sizing and forecasts have been done on the basis of value (USD million).
