    What is a UV absorber?

    A UV absorber, also known as a UV stabilizer or UV blocker, is a substance that absorbs ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight. UV absorbers are commonly used in various products and materials, including plastics, coatings, textiles, and skincare products, to protect them from the harmful effects of UV radiation.

    UV radiation from the sun can cause degradation, discoloration, and deterioration of materials over time. UV absorbers work by absorbing UV radiation and converting it into harmless heat energy, thus preventing it from damaging the material or product.

    Market Dynamics

    Increased Demand from the Textile Sector Will Drive Market Expansion

    Due to notable advancements in research, there is an increasing demand for ultraviolet (UV) absorbers. Exploring new potential uses for UV absorbers in various industrial sectors is still largely dependent on research and development activities. The market for UV absorbers has grown significantly over the last few decades because they are necessary for absorbing UV radiation and turning it into heat or kinetic energy. Furthermore, the textile industry is using UV absorbers more and more to stop the photo-oxidation and photo-aging processes. According to current trends, the textile industry is seeing a continued increase in the use of UV absorbers, but the demand from the automotive, construction, and cosmetics industries sectors is also growing at a considerable pace.
