Hydrogen Bromide Market Research, 2031

The global hydrogen bromide market was valued at $4.0 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $6.3 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2031.

Hydrogen Bromide (HBr) is a water-soluble gas that can also be produced as an aqueous solution by the chemical reaction of bromine and hydrogen. It is used in reactions as a catalyst and as a reducing agent. When hydrogen bromide is mixed with water, it produces hydrobromic acid, a strong acid that is primarily used in industry. Hydrobromic acid is used to add desirable properties to any chemical compound. It is also used in the manufacture of terephthalic acid, inorganic bromides, organobromines, and zinc, sodium, and calcium bromides. Because of its applications in industries, such as automotive, construction, and electronics, the global hydrogen bromide market is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period.
