Carbomers are cross-linked acrylic acid polymers that are produced by polymerization of acrylic acid or its derivatives with a cross-linking agent. The resulting polymer is then processed to synthesize carbomer in various forms namely, powder, liquid, and gel. Such forms of synthetic polymers are used as thickening, thickening, dispersing, and emulsifying agents in various industries including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products. Further, carbomers are widely used for the production of hygiene products such as hand sanitizers. In hand sanitizers, carbomers are used as thickeners to enhance the texture and spreadability of the product. Further, the thick consistency of the hand sanitizer containing carbomer ensures that the active ingredient remains on the skin for a longer period, allowing it to effectively kill bacteria and viruses.

Global Carbomer Market Segmentation Details:

Based on Type, in 2022, the carbomer 940 segment contributed the largest market shares in the carbomer market. Carbomer 940 is a fluffy white powder polymer that can swell up to 1000 times its original volume when dispersed in water. It is an extremely efficient rheology modifier capable of providing high viscosity. As a result, of this property, carbomer 940 is widely used to manufacture hydro-alcoholic gels or sparkling clear gels and creams. Hence, the increasing demand for such products is driving the growth of the carbomer market.

Based on Form, in 2022, the gel segment contributed the largest market shares in the carbomer market and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The carbomer gel forms a highly effective thickening and stabilizer agent that is used in the manufacturing of a wide range of products such as hair gel, shower gel, and sanitizers, among others. Further, carbomer gel helps to improve the texture and consistency of formulations particularly those containing high levels of surfactants which is the key driver contributing to the growth of the carbomer market.

Based on Application, the food supplement is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the widespread use of carbomers as stabilizers in solid and liquid food supplements to achieve a longer shelf life. Further, carbomer is particularly useful in a liquid food supplement that contains suspended particles to help prevent the particles from settling and clumping together, in turn, improves the appearance and quality of the product. Thus, the above-mentioned factors are expected to drive the market growth.

Based on End-Use Industry, in 2022, the personal care and cosmetic industry is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing awareness regarding personal hygiene and grooming which are driving the need for cosmetic and personal care products. Carbomer acts as an emulsion stabilizer and thickening agent in the manufacturing of products such as body lotions, facial cleansers, hair creams, and lipsticks, among others.

For instance, according to IBISWorld, in 2020, the average annual expenditure on cosmetics, and other personal care products among U.S. consumers increased to approximately USD 199. Skin care products such as facial cleansers contributed to the highest number of unit sales among cosmetics in the U.S. Hence, the increasing demand for cosmetic products is boosting the revenue growth of the carbomer market in the region.

Based on Region, in 2022, North America accounted for the largest share contribution to the market growth owing to the growing pharmaceutical industries, particularly in the U.S., and the rising government investment in the development of pharmaceutical infrastructure. In the pharmaceutical industry, carbomer is chiefly used as rheology modifiers, tablet binders, suspension stabilizers, and bioavailability enhancers. Further, increasing research & development activities in the pharmaceutical industries in North America to introduce advanced products are surging the demand for pharmaceutical ingredients, including carbomers.
