Fluorosilicic Acid Market Research, 2031

The global fluorosilicic acid market was valued at $389.4 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $727.4 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2031.

Fluorosilicic acid is an organic, colorless, flammable liquid with a strong odor. It is a byproduct of the manufacturing of hydrogen fluoride and phosphoric acid. Fluorosilicic acid is typically disposed of by neutralizing it with limestone or lime milk to produce safe inert byproducts. The acid is commercially available as a 70% aqueous solution in chemically pure and technical grades. It is used to harden cement and pottery, to fluoridate water, and to preserve wood. It is also utilized extensively in a variety of applications, including water fluoridation in water treatment facilities, textile, metal processing, electroplating, and acidizing oil wells.

Fluorosilicic Acid Market by Grade

The 40% segment accounted for the largest share i.e., 47.3% and is the fastest growing segment, growing around 7.0% CAGR over the forecasted period, this is because it preserves the level of fluorine in the water, hence avoiding tooth decay.

Fluorosilicic Acid Market by Application

The water fluoridation segment accounted for the largest share i.e., 49.15% and is the fastest growing segment, growing around 7.2% CAGR over the forecasted period. This is due to rising consumer concerns about preventing tooth decay and need for safe and effective ingredients to protect all ages from cavities.

Fluorosilicic Acid Market by Region

Asia-Pacific contributed the 32.30% market share in 2021 and is projected to grow at CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. Owing to the increased need for water treatment. Asia-Pacific has garnered major share in fluorosilicic acid market.

Japan and South Korea Overview

  • The Asia-Pacific region is home to a large number of the world's leading manufacturers of fluorosilicic acid. China, Japan, South Korea, and India are the four countries that are home to majority of the manufacturing plants.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to be the region with the highest growth rate, led by Japan and South Korea.
  • Changing consumption patterns, rapid urbanization, a growing population, substantial economic development, and rising per capita income are the primary factors influencing the market's expansion.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL FLUOROSILICIC ACID MARKET

  • The recent COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market for Fluorosilicic Acids in a significant way.
  • Fluorosilicic acid demand was muted for six months in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, which had a substantial impact on the market. Construction, manufacturing, and chemical end-use industries, among others, have all experienced significant market growth. For instance, the building sector is well-established in the United States. Up until 2019, the building sector gave the American economy a $ 2 trillion boost. The epidemic caused the amount to decrease to $1.3 trillion in 2020. The development of all associated industries has been hampered as a result. A number of ongoing projects have been shelved or delayed.
  • The automobile industry had seen a more than 20% decrease in the use of fluorosilicic acid for the manufacture of aluminium. The total output of vehicles in this sector directly affects the need for aluminium. The acid market consequently saw a similar impact on demand. The closure of showrooms, the complete and partial stoppage of manufacturing facilities, the restricted movement of goods, the ban on import and export activities, and other factors contributed to this.
  • Large oil, gas, and chemical firms are reducing capital and operational expenditures.
  • Companies with high debt and insufficient cash flow are more prone to encounter liquidity difficulties, and some may be forced to close their doors permanently
