Mold Release Agents Market Gain Impetus due to the Growing Demand over 2025


Global industry analysis

The Mold Release Agents Market is a growing segment in the industrial chemicals sector, with global demand expected to reach $6.2 billion by 2025. Mold release agents are used across a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, construction and marine, as well as many others.

Because most materials are inherently viscous and have a certain fictionality, when poured into a mold they tend to stick to the mold surface when heated to high temperatures and pressures. Release chemicals are commonly used to protect mold surfaces from harmful substances and to quickly release parts from complex shapes.

To minimize waste and create a consistent finish, release agents are typically sprayed using electrostatic or pneumatic spray equipment. Release agents not only form a physical barrier, but also give molded parts more mechanical strength. The use of release agents significantly reduces the cycle time of each molding process.

Release agents allow the filled polymer to flow and disperse freely and improve surface finish while reducing porosity. The service life of the mold is also significantly improved through the use of mold release agents. Water-based release agents help with heat management by cooling the mold due to the high evaporation rate of water.

Global Release Agent Market Dynamics


To increase productivity in the assembly of molded parts, molds are designed to achieve maximum throughput in a single casting and forming cycle. This has led to heavier weight injections into larger, more complex shapes. Complex dies require more release agent for even cooling and proper part release in engraving and casting applications. All these factors will propel the growth of the global Release Agents market during the forecast period.

In addition, the use of release agents significantly reduces operating costs and times, and increases production by several orders of magnitude. Apart from that, the release agent provides a better surface finish and also eliminates porosity problems. Mold release agents can also be used to improve mold life.


One of the biggest challenges in the global release agent market is the availability of alternative non-stick coatings that offer better surface finishes and reduce porosity problems. Governments have imposed strict regulations on emissions of harmful VOCs, putting pressure on manufacturers to switch to alternative release agents.

Another factor restraining the growth of the global release agent market is fluctuating raw material prices, which significantly impact the profitability margins of manufacturers and distributors.


As environmental regulations tighten to curb harmful VOC emissions, manufacturers are focusing on developing environmentally friendly release agents with low VOC emissions.

In addition, manufacturers create release agents for a variety of custom applications. This improves the efficiency of the tool and offers scope for individual adjustments to the requirements.

Global Release Agents Market: Regional Outlook

The global Release Agents market is dominated by the Asia Pacific region, with China being the major player in the market. This is due to the rapid growth of end-use industries such as construction, engineering, automotive and many other types of processing applications. Regions such as North America and Europe also represent significant market shares.

However, these regions are likely to grow relatively slowly due to relatively mature markets in consumer industries, particularly the automotive industry. Latin America is expected to grow at a relatively rapid CAGR over the forecast period due to increasing investments in various end-use industries in the region. The Middle East and Africa are also expected to expand significantly over the forecast period.
