Hydrofluoric acid (HF), also known as fluorhydric acid and hydronium fluoride, is a solution of hydrogen fluoride with colorless appearance. It is a weak acid, and is highly corrosive, and toxic for individuals, as it can damage lungs and cornea of eyes permanently. It is produced by treatment of fluorite with concentrated sulfuric acid. It is used in various industries such as mining, chemicals, refining, silicon chip fabrication, and for other research purposes.
A major factor driving growth of the global market is increasing demand from chemical industries for production of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and hydrofluorolefin (HFO). Increasing use of HF in steel aluminum, petroleum, and pharmaceuticals industry is primarily expected to boost growth of the market. HF is also used for glass etching and metal removal in electronics industry. Increasing adoption of hydrofluoric acid in various chemicals industries, is another major factor expected to propel growth of the global market in the next coming years.
However, stringent government regulations and hazardous effects of the product are major factors restraining growth of the target market. In addition, uncertainty in supply of raw materials, can increase the prices of raw materials, resulting in escalation in price of hydrofluoric acid, which is expected to be a challenge for growth of the target market. Rising demand from glass etching and cleaning applications is an opportunity for the target market.
The Asia Pacific hydrofluoric acid market accounts for major share in terms of revenue in the global market and is expected to register highest CAGR in the next 10 years, owing to increasing demand from end-use industries in countries in the region. China is the major contributor for the market in Asia Pacific region. North America market is projected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The market in Europe is expected to register a significant CAGR in the next 10 years. Moreover, the market in Middle East & Africa is estimated to register a CAGR of X.X% over the forecast period, followed by the market in Latin America.
