Rheology modifiers play a crucial role in controlling the rheology of fluids in a number of end-use industries such as adhesives and sealants, pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings, and construction. The report states that growth of the end-use industries, especially in Asia Pacific, will propel the global rheology market over the report’s forecast period.

However, the market’s growth is expected to be restricted to some extent owing to the declining demand for ink in the global market. Rising consumer preference for electronic publications such as e-papers, e-journals, e-books, and others is leading to a continuous reduction in the overall demand for inks in print media, hampering the overall development of the global rheology market.
