Sodium Pyrophosphate Market size will witness healthy gains in the coming years owing to its wide usage in bleaching operations, as a wool de-fatting agent and food additive. The compound is a colorless, odorless transparent or white powder commonly known as tetrasodium pyrophosphate or tetrasodium phosphate.
Agriculture is considered as one of the most important industry worldwide and is growing at a substantial rate. Significantly increasing rate of world population and gradually growing food needs, will cater to the expansion in agricultural industry. Also, due to increasing industrialization, the amount of agricultural land under cultivation is decreasing rapidly. Use of harmful insecticides and pesticides is degrading the crop quality on a large amount. The sodium pyrophosphate market demand is rising as the product is used in non-pesticides for the protection of crops and high yield. Non-pesticides are on a high demand in the agricultural market for its crop friendly and mild properties.
Several detergents also have a significant content of sodium pyrophosphate due to its cleaning properties. Phosphate content in the product result in eutrophication or enrichment of nutrients in water promoting the growth of algae. This can hinder the sodium pyrophosphate market growth in near future.
Based on production methods, sodium pyrophosphate market can be bifurcated as furnace grade reaction and molecular dehydration. The product can be formed using two different methods. Furnace-grade reaction of sodium carbonate with phosphoric acid gives out disodium phosphate. Disodium phosphate when further heated at 450°C forms sodium pyrophosphate. The product can also be obtained from molecular dehydration of dibasic sodium phosphate at 500°C.
On the basis of application, the global sodium pyrophosphate market can be classified as bleaching agents, buffering agents, emulsifier, dispersing agents, thickening agents and other including anti-scaling agent, plating agents, surface treating agents, etc. Bleaching agents are used in the paper industry and several detergents. Buffering agents finds its use in maintaining the pH (acidity) of the solutions. The product also finds its use as an emulsifier for stabilizing surfactants.
Based on the end-user industries, the global sodium pyrophosphate market can be segmented into food & beverages, personal care, household care, automotive, agriculture and paper. Food & beverages is a prominent and leading industry in the use of sodium pyrophosphate. It is used as a food additive in soy-based meat, canned tuna, imitation crab, crab meat, pudding, marshmallows and chicken nuggets. Other than human food, the product also finds its use as an additive in pet food.
In the personal care industry, the product finds its uses in toothpastes as a tartar controlling agent and in shampoos as a gelling agent. In the automotive industry, the product finds its use as a cleaning composite for the removal of iron rust and hard water deposits. The global vehicle sales were accounted for over 90 million in 2016. Extensive use of the product in several industries is fueling the sodium pyrophosphate market demand on a large scale. Apart from these, the product also has several industrial uses such as thickening agent, dispersing agent, emulsifier, buffering agent and bleaching agent.
On the basis on region, Asia Pacific is holds a major chunk of share in the global sodium pyrophosphate market. India is one of the leading manufacturer and consumer of sodium phosphate market owing to its agrarian economy. China has a large number of manufacturers and exports of the product. Moreover, due to huge automobile production in the region, the sodium pyrophosphate market is projected to foresee higher gains in the coming years. Owing to high demand in industries such as food manufacturing and personal care, the sodium pyrophosphate market in Europe and North America is growing at a decent CAGR. Latin America’s sodium pyrophosphate market is growing at a slower rate owing to gradual industrialization and development in the region. Demand for food & beverages is rising prominently in the Middle East fueling the sodium pyrophosphate market demand in that region.
Major players operating in the global sodium pyrophosphate market include Aditya Birla Chemicals, Innophos Holdings, Yunnan BK Giulini Tianchuang Phosphate, Jiangsu Sunrise Biotech, Hubei Xingfa Chemicals Group, Chengdu Talent Chemical, Sigma-Aldrich, Sovika Group of Companies, Aarti Phosphates, EMCO Dyestuff, Pari Chemicals, Powder Pack Chem, Akash Purochem, Shaoxing Marina Biotechnology and Lianyungang Zexin Food Ingredients.
