Turkey Desiccant Market Outlook - 2031

The Turkey desiccant market size was valued at $0.9 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $1.3 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2022 to 2031.

“The demand for the desiccant market in Turkey is driven by expanding food and pharmaceutical packaging techniques. Increasing spending on healthcare, improved access to healthcare, and greater consumer awareness of healthy lifestyles has all led to an increase in the demand for pharmaceutical packaging and will drive the desiccant market in Turkey.”

The term "desiccants" refers to hygroscopic materials or goods. Desiccants absorb the ambient moisture from the environment. By absorbing moisture, they minimize humidity and avoid the damage caused by moisture to goods. Physical absorption is the process by which desiccants absorb moisture and trap it within surfaces or capillaries without altering the water's properties. On the other hand, certain desiccants absorb moisture and react with it to generate a new substance; this process is known as chemical absorption. Physical moisture absorption is reversible, while chemical absorption is irreversible. Desiccants such as zeolites, silica gel, and others function through physical absorption, whereas magnesium sulphate, calcium chloride, and others function through chemical absorption.

Desiccants serve a crucial role in the shipment of food and pharmaceuticals by absorbing moisture and maintaining a regulated atmosphere to protect product quality throughout transport. Desiccants are also utilized in the production of insulated windows to avoid condensation of moisture on the panes. In order to preserve the efficiency of the refrigerant, air conditioning systems use desiccants such as zeolites as drying components. Desiccants are also utilized in certain chemical reactions, including those in which water must be extracted from solvents, such as the Grignard reaction, in which zeolites are used as drying agents.

The expansion of biotechnology is expected to increase the demand for silica gel during the forecast period. In the pharmaceutical sector, silica gel column chromatography helps in the collection and separation of a drug's constituents. This method is also used to study medications such as local anesthetics, hypnotics, analgesics, sedatives, and steroids. Increased need for medicines, particularly in Turkey, is anticipated to fuel the demand for biopharmaceuticals, which, in turn, would promote the growth of chromatographic silica gel and boost the market for desiccants in Turkey during the forecast period.

Increased use of activated alumina in wastewater treatment application

Water scarcity is one of the world's most pressing problems. The Ministry of Environment, Urban Planning, and Climate Change announced that Turkey was able to recycle treated wastewater at a rate of 4.2% by the end of 2022, despite having set a goal of 4%. Next year, Turkey aims to increase this rate to 5%, and by 2030 to 15%. The recycling of treated wastewater is a top priority for water-scarce Turkey. As population growth increases water use and climate change causes droughts, water conservation is a primary concern for the country, which also strives to limit excessive irrigation methods in agriculture.

Activated alumina works best as a point-of-entry or point-of-use water treatment device. Arsenic, sodium fluoride, and lead are three of the most prevalent toxins in water streams. Activated alumina effectively eliminates these pollutants. Activated alumina can also be used to treat source water, which typically contains significant concentrations of sulphate. The effectiveness and level of adsorption rely on a variety of variables, such as water quality, specific pollutants, and the physiologies of alumina itself. Consequently, the increase in wastewater treatment and water recycling is expected to fuel the need for activated alumina and the desiccant market in Turkey during the forecast period.

The packaging of pharmaceuticals protects the pharmaceutical products from damage, infection, counterfeiting, and degradation. Prior to the use of desiccant materials in pharmaceutical goods, their manufacturing and technical performance must be consistent. However, the relative cost of the final product has multiplied due to the high quality of packaging for safeguarding pharmaceutical products from external pollutants and keeping them bacteria-free for an extended period of time. Thus, it is expected that the high cost of the final product will be the primary factor hampering the growth of the Turkey desiccants market.

Due to a rise in population and disposable income in Turkey, the electronic industry is undergoing a period of rapid expansion. The downsizing of electronic components and packaging are both a progressive process. Sensitive electronic equipment must be handled carefully during transportation and storage. Even the smallest amount of moisture or humidity can cause irreparable harm to electronic devices. If the equipment is costly to purchase and produce, this leads to substantial losses. As a result, producers in the electronic industry are exerting significant effort to minimize the effect of moisture on their products. This factor will offer lucrative opportunity for the Turkey desiccant market.

The Turkey desiccant market is segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region. By type, the market is classified into silica gel, activated alumina, activated charcoal, zeolite, calcium chloride, clay, and others. By end-use industry, it is divided into packaging, food, pharmaceutical, electronic, and others.

Turkey Desiccant  market, by Type

On the basis of type, silica gel segment has the highest share of 36.78%, because sodium silicate is used to make a porous and granular form of silicon dioxide known as silica gel. The product is manufactured and distributed in three distinct types: A, B, and C. Types A and B are anticipated to be increasingly utilized as carriers for catalysts, adsorbents, and separators, as well as perfume carriers, owing to their resistance to moisture and dryness. Manufacturers frequently include silica gel, a desiccant or drying agent, in small packaging to avoid moisture damage to specific foods and commercial products. The activated alumina segments is the fastest growing segments with CAGR 5.24%, activated alumina is a porous solid form of alumina. One of the many applications of activated alumina is the absorption of water. As a desiccant, activated alumina can be used to dry the flow of compressed air and other gases and liquids. Moreover, adsorbents are commonly employed to filter gas streams by selectively absorbing certain molecules

Activated Alumina is projected as the fastest-growing segment.

Turkey Desiccant  market, by End-Use Industry

On the basis of end-use industry, food industry has the highest share of 33.50%. This is because it is used as a drying agent to preserve some foods. The pharmaceutical industry is the fastest growing industry with CAGR 3.94%. A pharmaceutical desiccant is a hygroscopic chemical that either induces or enhances surface drying. The antithesis of moisturizing products. Typically encountered packaged desiccants are solids that absorb water. Desiccants used in the pharmaceutical industry serve unique objectives. This is any form than solid, and it may operate on other principles. It is also utilized for water molecule chemical bonding. Desiccants are frequently used to keep foods crisp. Desiccants are mostly utilized on the market to preserve the water content of a gas stream.

Analyst Review

According to the perspective of CXOs of leading companies, increasing demand for desiccants in the chemical industry and air conditioning systems will propel the desiccant market in Turkey. Chemical absorption is generally more efficient than physical absorption. However, it is also more costly compared to physically absorbent desiccants, which is precisely why the demand for physically absorbent desiccants is relatively high on the market today. In addition, producers in the market for electronics are taking great efforts to minimize the impact of moisture on their products, which will enhance the demand for desiccants in Turkey. Electronic products are very sensitive to moisture damage in shipping. In addition, if its value is high, there is a large risk on the shipping of electronic goods. Each product needs precise humidity control to secure the delivery of these fragile items. Furthermore, rising food and pharmaceutical packaging methods boost the demand for desiccants in Turkey during the forecast period. Market opportunities will be created by the rising demand for pharmaceutical packaging in Turkey as a result of greater access to healthcare, growing healthcare spending, and increased consumer awareness of healthy lifestyles.
