Key Market Trends

Growing Demand of Fluorosilicic Acid from Water Treatment Industry

Fluorosilicic acid is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula (H3O)2SiF6, and is also named as hexafluorosilicic acid.

  • Fluorosilicic acid is produced as a co-product in the manufacture of phosphate fertilizers and also from phosphate rock, which contains fluoride and silica, is treated with sulphuric acid.

  • Fluorosilicic Acid is a water insoluble silicon source for use in oxygen-sensitive applications, such as metal production. Additionally it is used in water fluoridation, in hardening cement and ceramics, as a wood preservative.

  • Fluorosilicic acid is normally fed directly into water by means of various liquid feeding devices and metering pumps to reduce the incidence of dental caries.

  • Rising ground and surface water pollution boosts the requirement of water treatment Plant which in turn boosts the demand for fluorosilicic acid.

  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the application of fluorosilicic acid from water treatment plant is likely to dominate during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market for fluorosilicic acid during the forecast period. The rising demand of fluorosilicic acid from water treatment plant and growing application in construction sector in developing countries like China, Japan and India is expected to drive the demand for fluorosilicic acid in this region.

  • The largest producers of fluorosilicic acid are located in Asia-Pacific region. Some of the leading companies in the production of fluorosilicic acid are Solvay America, Inc., Honeywell International Inc., Napco Chemical Company, American Elements and IXOM among others.

  • Major population of China relies on groundwater sources for drinking water, which are either untreated or not properly treated by municipal water suppliers which in turn increases the need for water treatment chemicals increases.

  • Ruling Govt. Initiatives such as Housing for all the government's flagship scheme PMAY launched in June 2015 aims to build 20 million urban homes and 30 million rural houses by 2022, Smart Cities, etc. are fuelling the growth of the Urban Infrastructure and construction development.

  • Owing to the above-mentioned factors, the market for economizer in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow significantly during the study period.
