It is used by municipal corporation in water treatment process to maintain fluoride level. Hexafluorosilicic acid is widely used in metal surface treatment processes as it induces non-chromium surface passivation which may promote product demand.

Global water treatment application segment was valued at over USD 25 billion in 2018. Increasing demand for fluoridation in drinking water is likely to be the major driver as fluorinated water reduces severity of cavity and allows the individuals to experience less pain occurring from cavities.

Increasing product demand from textile industries for the removal of stain and rust from fabrics is likely to foster the hydrofluorosilicic market growth. Global textile industry was valued at over USD 925 billion in 2018 and may exceed USD 1.2 trillion by 2025. The product is used for pH adjustment in industrial textile processing or laundries.

Hydrofluorosilicic acid is widely used in oral care products such as toothpaste, mouth wash, floss and teeth whitening. Global oral care products demand was valued at over USD 28.5 billion in 2018. Increasing consumer awareness for oral disorders such as gingivitis, denture irritation and bleeding gums is likely to boost the fluorosilicic acid market growth. It strengthens weak spots and exposed roots and aid in preventing the early stages of tooth decay.

Textile processing applications 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 clothes 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 acts as a stable product during surface treatment process.

Market, By Region

North America, driven by Canada and the U.S. 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 the fluorosilicic acid market value.

Europe led by UK, France, Italy, and Germany fluorosilicic acid market demand was valued at over USD 190 million in 2018. Growing prevalence of periodontal disorders coupled with edentulism in the region which lead to tooth loss, severely affecting quality of life, may boost the product demand. These are used in toothpaste, mouth wash and other dental products to maintain fluoride level which averts tooth decay, thereby driving the product demand.

Asia Pacific led by China, India and Japan is likely to register significant gains at over 5.5% by the projected timeframe. Changing consumption patterns, increasing population and growing demand for clothing may drive the textile industry in the region. Fluorosilicic fabric treatments offer stain and oil resistance and durability in the textile industry which will accelerate the fluorosilicic acid market trends.
