Global Optical Brighteners Market, By Chemical, Application, and End user

Optical brighteners are compounds that absorb light in the violet or ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum and reemit it in the blue region, by a process known as fluorescence. Optical brighteners are also referred to as fluorescent whitening agents or fluorescent brightening agents. Optical brighteners possess properties such as are whiteness and brightness, light fastness, washing fastness, heat resistance, chemical stability, metamerism, low volatility and high solubility in organic solvents. Optical brighteners are mainly used to brighten colors or mask yellowing and are thus, used  as detergent whiteners, paper brighteners, as well as textile whitening, fiber whitening, and brightening or color-correcting additives in cosmetics. They are also used in plastics to improve its initial color, provide white end-use products, and increase brightness of black and colored pigmented articles. Optical brighteners are widely used in molded thermoplastics, adhesives, fibers, films and sheets, clear and pigmented lacquers, paints, synthetic leather, printing inks, photo processing solutions, and ultraviolet tracers.
