Optical Brightening Agents Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, and Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices


The global Optical Brightening Agents market reached a value of about USD 1566 million in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of about USD 1936 million by 2027.

The global Optical Brightening Agents industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. The extensive application of the product in the textiles and cosmetics sector is driving the market growth. The Asia Pacific is the highest category spender by region, driving the demand for the Optical Brightening Agents industry.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Optical Brightening Agents are synthetic compounds used in the production of plastics, fibres, coatings, inks, detergents, liquids, and powders to make clothes look whiter, brighter, and cleaner. They soak up light in the ultraviolet and violet scales of the electromagnetic continuum and emanate light in the blue span. The Optical Brightening Agents industry report comprises segments by type (DASCC, DSBP), application (Paper, Detergents, Textiles, and Others), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

The Asia Pacific America Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific holds a significant share in the market due to factors such as fast industrialisation, growing manufacturing activity, and a growing population with a yearning for more substantial living standards, especially in countries like China and India. China is a significant market for optical brighteners. It is the primary production hub for finished products containing optical brighteners, such as plastics, cosmetics, and laundry care products. The growth in demand for optical brighteners in textiles, detergents, and cosmetic items is expected to drive the region's expansion.

The market is being propelled by the global expansion in textiles and cosmetics. Previously, bluing was utilised for the same purpose, but newer optical brightening chemicals have since supplanted it. Brighteners boost the detergent's effectiveness while also acting as fabric softeners. They're also used to make bleach. As a result, the detergent and cleaning industries have driven the market for optical brightening compounds.

However, the health risks associated with optical brighteners, such as allergic reactions to the skin and eye irritation, are likely to hamper the market's growth.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Optical Brightening Agents industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Optical Brightening Agents regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Optical brighteners transform ultraviolet (UV) light waves into stronger blue light and less yellow light, making objects look whiter. As a result, they don’t make your clothing any cleaner, but they do make them look whiter and brighter. They can survive the heat and even chemicals like bleach, so they stay on your garments. Using a specific ultraviolet or black light, you can identify optical brighteners, which will let you realise that your garments sparkle.

Other Applications of the Product, Further Driving the Procurement of Optical Brightening Agents

The industry is witnessing growth due to the increase in demand for paper with more aesthetic appeal. The high-brightness paper contains brightening chemicals that give it a vivid, fluorescent look when exposed to UV light, further boosting the industry’s growth. The introduction of new optical brightening chemicals more compatible with recycled fibres is furthering the recycled fibre business propelling the industry. In addition, the compounds are now used in the security industry. Fluorescence has been added to bank notes and labels to help differentiate them from counterfeit ones, thus resulting in the market’s development.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Market Landscape

The worldwide optical brighteners market is highly fragmented with regional and local competitors. To expand their application and geographical reach, the key players in this market are pursuing tactics such as new product releases, acquisitions, and expansion. Optical brighteners that are both environmentally benign and cost-effective are the focus of manufacturers. The Optical Brighteners Market’s primary tactics are technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D efforts.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • BASF introduced Ultraphor RN Plus Liquid, a new optical brightener, in December 2016. The use of non-fixed brighteners minimises shade divergence and yellow colours.
