Fluorosilicic Acid Market, By Grades
Fluorosilicic acid market size for 40% grade may witness gains at over 5% by 2025. The product is used as a chemical intermediate for aluminum trifluoride, cryolite and other fluorosilicates. It also act as a neutralizer for alkalis, which may boost industry growth.
35% grade segment was valued at over USD 270 million in 2018. It is used as wood preservation agents and as herbicidal agent, which is likely to drive the industry growth.
Fluorosilicic Acid Market, By Application
Fluorosilicic acid market demand from water fluoridation was valued at over USD 120 million in 2018. It is used in public water treatment plants for lessening in dental caries by regulating the fluoride content of public water supplies. It is added to water treatment plants to give a total fluoride F level of which has been recognized as active component for reducing tooth decay, thereby fueling product demand.
Textile processing application may register significant growth at over 5% up to 2025. It is used in removing rust and stains from the fabrics and tend to decrease the surface tension of the substrate by forming a thin film coating around the fiber. Moreover, it acts as a laundry chemical when added to cloths during the rinse cycle to lessen water pH and assist the removal of cleansers and corrosion stains, thereby stimulating the market demand.
Hexafluorosilicic acid market demand from metal surface treatment may surpass USD 100 million by the end of foreseeable timeframe. The product acts as a non-hexavalent chromium formula component with low chlorine content and act as a stable product during surface treatment process which is likely to fuel the product demand.
Fluorosilicic Acid Market, By Region
North America, driven by Canada and the U.S. market size may register significant gains at over 5.5% up to 2025. Increasing consumer consciousness towards the importance of clean water may propel the regional industry growth. Government regulations are forcing municipal corporation to use the product in public drinking water to avert tooth decay problems, which in turn may accelerate industry growth.
Europe led by UK, France, Italy, and Germany fluorosilicic acid market demand was valued at over USD 190 million in 2018.
