This unique fully updated and revised report comprehensively defines the various categories of adjuvants and additives and explains their ‘mode of action’.

Current estimates are the global adjuvants market should grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of about 6% over the next few years. The global adjuvant market is set to grow to $3.5 billion by 2021 and almost $3.8 billion by 2022.

The report clearly explains the often complex nomenclature and claimed effects. In addition, advances in the use of adjuvants are covered, together with a review of recent patent literature.

The companies involved in various parts of the adjuvants and additives sector are listed and profiled and include crop protection companies, speciality chemical companies, and specialist adjuvant companies.

There are a number of organisations and associations relevant to the adjuvant sector and these are also listed and profiled.

The regulatory processes for adjuvants in Europe and the US are described.
