The nucleating and clarifying agents are increasing as it offers efficient and high-quality end products. The pinhole, wavy, and snow patterns are converted into a smooth texture with the help of powdered agents, which are useful in producing many cosmetic end products expected to drive market growth. Additionally, polymers such as polyethylene glycol are used as emulsifiers, and emollients help the product penetrate deep into the skin; such factors drive market growth.

The nucleating and clarifying agents have wide application in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors owing to their transparent and rigid nature. Medical apparatus and containers are usually transparent to monitor the proper dosages and ensure accuracy, which is anticipated to bolster market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the growth of the nucleating and clarifying agents market. The shortage of chemicals and raw materials and negligible operations resulted in high prices. The government's stringent rule halted many industries, reducing the production of the products, thus disrupting the supply chain and haltering market growth.
