Chelating Agents Market Overview

The global chelating agents market accounted for USD 4.5 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 12.5 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 16.1% from 2021 to 2028.

Chelating agents play an important role in photosynthesis and oxygen transport in biological processes. In addition, several biological catalysts are chelates. Commercially, the global chelating agents market is economically important in form of products besides the production of other chemicals. A chelating agent is capable of forming several bonds in a single metal ion allowing it to become a multidentate ligand. For example, ethylenediamine can be referred to as a chelate.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

Though the end-users are finding it difficult to sustain the onslaught of COVID-19, the food industry is asking for personal hygiene paper products and medical specialty papers, which is expected to keep the market at least in the ongoing mode. It will take a while for the paper & pulp industry to bounce back, as partial/total lockdown imposed all across has hampered production. However, mid-2022 is expected to bring in positives’ in the form of the majority of people getting vaccinated.

Growth Factors:

Chelating agents are amongst the chemical compounds reacting for forming a water-soluble, stable complex, that too, with the metal ions. At times, they have also termed chelators, chelants, or sequestering agents. The cleaning and detergent and pulp & paper industries are the major drivers of the chelating agents market. Plus, fast industrialization, which asks for water treatment chemicals, is another one. As such, there is a soaring demand for cleaning formulations like all-purpose cleaners, surface cleaners, disinfectants, and cleansers.
