Hydrogen cyanide is also called as prussic acid; is an organic compound with chemical formula HCN. It is a colorless, extremely poisonous liquid, with boiling point 25.6 °C. Hydrogen cyanide is a linear molecule, with a triple bond between carbon and nitrogen. Hydrogen cyanide is weakly acidic in nature, and partly ionizes in water solution to give the cyanide anion, CN. Hydrogen cyanide is found in smoke of tobacco products. Hydrogen cyanide is one of the most widely used chemicals worldwide. HCN used in, various industrial processes and is a highly valuable precursor to various chemical compounds such as polymers and, pharmaceuticals. Hydrogen cyanide is majorly, used in manufacture sodium cyanide and potassium cyanide, and in gold and silver mining and for electroplating of those metals. HCN is added to butadiene to produce adiponitrile which is a precursor Nylon-6,6. In addition, chelating agents such as EDTA, and NTA are manufactured by using hydrogen cyanide.
Hydrogen cyanide is broadly consumed in manufacturing of sodium cyanide and potassium cyanide as a raw material, and is also used in the extraction of metals from their ores. This is a major factor, expected to fuel growth of the global hydrogen cyanide market, over the forecast period. In addition, increasing use of hydrogen cyanide, in production of adiponitrile, which is the precursor to manufacture nylon 66, is projected to boost growth of the target market.
However, a major restraint the hydrogen cyanide market is its highly toxic nature, which makes it difficult for transportation as well as for storage. Hydrogen cyanide is extremely poisonous to humans as it interferes with ATP (adenosine triphosphate); the main energy storage molecule in the body that brings the body's metabolism to a halt resulting in death, which is a major factor hampering the growth of the global hydrogen cyanide market.
Currently market in, North America is expected to lead the global hydrogen cyanide market followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific, owing to rising demand for hydrogen cyanide based nutritional additives in the region. Also, the market in North America is expected to witness moderate growth and is expected to register a CAGR of X.X% during the forecast period.
