Global $6+ Billion Chelating Agents Market Report, Size, Share, Trends and Forecast to 2024

Press release   •   Aug 08, 2019 07:19 EDT

The global chelating agents market is being driven by the rapid advancements in chelation technology to promote a green approach for waste and resource management.

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Chelating Agents Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, finds that the global chelating agents market size reached US$ 5.2 Billion in 2018. Chelating agents, also known as ligands and sequestering agents, are organic or inorganic compounds that react with metal ions to form complex ring-like structures. These agents are polyacidic, polybasic or function both as acids and bases and exist in different salt forms. Chelating agents help in breaking down, isolating or moving heavy metal ions; deactivating metal ions to prevent plugging, sealing and precipitation; and limiting the availability of metal ion concentration. They also transport nutrients in plants and aid in the digestion processes, both in humans and animals.

Market Trends:

The demand for chelating agents is driven by their utilization in various applications, such as water treatment, paper manufacturing and the latest dishwasher tabs to prevent or remove hard-water and food stains on dishes. In addition, they are used as precursors in the production of fertilizers that release micronutrients in crops to avert soil salinization. Besides this, chelating agents are used as additives in the food processing industry as the binding of the metal atoms (masking) stabilizes the structure, aroma and color of the food and provides an antioxidant and preservative effect. Moreover, the advancement in chelating technology has contributed to the development of mobilizing agents, which can help to minimize industrial waste and reduce the environmental impact of hazardous chemicals. However, there is ongoing research regarding the innovations in the synthesis of new biodegradable agents. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 6.5 Billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 3.7% during 2019-2024.
