The global chelating agent market is projected to reach USD 6.18 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 4.12% from 2016 to 2021. The report aims to estimate the market size and future growth potential of the chelating agent market by type, application, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2015, and the market size is forecast from 2016 to 2021. The high growth in the pulp & paper and cleaning & detergent industries drives the chelating agents market. Chelating agents play a major role in the manufacturing process of a wide range of industrial and household cleaning products, such as detergents, liquid washing soaps, surface cleaners, sprays, and granules.

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for the identification and collection of information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers and certified publications, and articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both, the supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the market size, in terms of value, of the chelating agents market on the basis of type, application, and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data via primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

The figure below provides a break-up of the profile of primary discussion participants.

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The supply chain of chelating agent includes raw material manufacturers such as The DoW Chemical Company (U.S.), Huntsman (Germany), AkzoNobel NA (Netherlands), BASF SE (Germany), and others. These companies supply raw materials to various manufacturing companies, which produce chelating agents using a single-step or a two-step synthesis process. Chelating agent manufacturers such as AkzoNobel NA (Netherlands), BASF SE (Germany), Kemira OYJ (Tokyo), and ADM (U.S.) work with research institutes to develop ecofriendly chelating agents. These chelating agents are largely marketed and distributed directly to end-use application industries namely, pulp & paper, cleaners, food and beverages, textile, pharmaceuticals, and so on. The wholesalers, buyers, and dealers also offer bulk chelating agents to these end-use application industries.”

The global chelating agent market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 6.18 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.12% from 2016 to 2021. High-growth application areas such as pulp & paper, cleaners, water treatment and personal care and extensive new product launch and agreement & collaboration activities by companies are key factors driving the global chelating agents market.

The chelating agent market has been segmented on the basis of type into aminopolycarboxylate, phosphates & phosphonates, and others (biodegradable chelating agents, N-(2-Hydroxyethyl) ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (HEDTA) and zeolites). Phosphates & phosphonates are mainly used in industrial and household detergents & cleaners, food & beverage, and water treatment. Aminopolycarboxylates, synthetic chelating agent, is estimated to be the largest market by type, as they are produced on an industrial scale to meet the demand for wide range of applications. They are one of the most widely used categories of chelating agents. They form chelants with metal ions that are present in a variety of domestic products, and hence are used intensively as metal sequestrants in several industrial applications.

The chelating agent market is expected to witness substantial growth, due to the increasing demand for chelating agents in various applications, including cleaners, water treatment, pulp & paper, agrochemicals, personal care, pharmaceuticals. Pulp & paper is the largest application for chelating agents. The pulp & paper industry has significantly progressed with substantial demands for varieties of papers for writing, printing, and packaging. Chelating agents play a vital role in paper processing. They inhibit the reactions of unstable metal ions with bleaching agents in chemical and mechanical pulp production processes.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for chelating agents, accounting for the largest market share, by value, in 2015. China dominated the Asia-Pacific chelating agents market in 2015, followed by India. India is the fastest-growing market for chelating agents, and is expected to surpass China in the near future. The high economic growth rate and growing demand for applications such as cleaners, water treatment, pulp & paper, agrochemicals, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and others will drive the chelating agents market in the next five years.

Chelating Agent Market

Although the chelating agent market is growing at a significant rate, certain factors could hinder the growth. High capital expenditure and ecotoxicological risk of conventional chelating agents are restricting the growth of the chelating agents market.

Companies such as AkzoNobel NA (Netherlands), Archer Daniels Midland Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Kemira Oyj (Finland), The DOW Chemical Company (U.S.), and Cargill, Incorporated (U.S.) are frontrunners in the global chelating agents market. These companies have strengthened their market position through diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, consistent strategic development activities, and technological advancements. They have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansion, agreements & collaborations, and new product launch & development to increase their market share.
