The article reports on the projected performance of the coatings and ink additives in 2009. A study by the consulting firm Kusumgar, Nerlfi & Growney reveals a minimal gain of worldwide consumption of five leading additives for coating and inks. Specifically, the study based from the additives such as rheology modifiers, dispersants, foam control additives, wetting agents, and slip and rub materials reflects a minimal worldwide growth in the year compared to a 5-6% annual positive rate in 2008.
