Inorganic Fluorides Market Overview

The global inorganic fluorides market is anticipated to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 5.1%.

Inorganic fluorides can be produced either naturally or artificially synthesized fluorine compounds. These are naturally produced by draining from the bedrocks that include fluoride minerals. These compounds are artificially produced by the integration of hydrofluoric acid with oxides, hydroxides, chlorides, carbonates, or metals. Hydrogen fluoride (HF), calcium fluoride (CaF2), Sodium fluoride (NaF), and Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6) are some of the most commonly used inorganic fluorides. These essential chemicals are preferred in multifarious applications in various end-use industries.

For example, hydrogen fluoride is used in the manufacturing process of inorganic and organic fluorine, sodium fluoride is used for water fluoridation in water treatment industries, and aluminum fluoride is used in the production of synthetic cryolite for aluminum smelting. These compounds are used as a fluorinating agent in organic chemistry in substitution reactions with aliphatic halides and are also used in reactions with unsaturated compounds.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic experiences the worst recession in all the business sectors. The chemical industries are drastically impacted by the pandemic. Worldwide, China was the largest producer of chemicals that contributes 35.8% to global chemical sales in 2018. In 2020, The National Bureau of Statistics of China states that the manufacturing output of chemicals is declined by 21%, and the profits are decreased by 66% due to the pandemic. The chemical sector’s supply chain is strongly dependent on China. On the other hand, China is severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic which is highly affecting the chemical production company sales.

Hence, the inorganic fluorides market is also drastically impacted by the COVID-19. The lockdowns, reducing the chemical supply chains from China, shutdowns of manufacturing industries are the factors that declined the market growth of the inorganic fluorides in the pandemic period. The declining demand was mostly caused in the first two quarters of 2020. After reducing corona cases, lifting the lockdowns, and allowing the supply chains, the demand for the inorganic fluorides was rapidly increasing due to its multifarious applications in various end-use industries.

Recent Developments June 2021- researchers from Osaka University have successfully developed the first organic reaction across the globe, which includes the selective conversion of a particular carbon-fluorine (C-F) bond in perfluorinated compounds to several other functional groups.Fluorinated compounds are a vital group of compounds broadly used in organic electronic materials, functional resins, agricultural chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Particularly, perfluorinated compounds consisting of several carbon-fluorine bonds are grabbing traction due to their high chemical and thermal stability and several brilliant characteristics like chemical resistance and water and oil repellency. The author of the study, Prof. Makoto Yasuda, explained that C-F bonds are very strong. Therefore, the transformation under mild conditions of these bonds is quite tricky, and selective activation of a particular C-F bond from among several C-F bonds in perfluorinated compounds has not been accomplished. The study concluded that a site-selective C-F bond transformation to valuable functional groups operates through a photocatalyst and organotin compounds in the presence of visible light irradiation. The theoretical and experimental results disclosed the importance of the assistance of organotin compounds and a photocatalyst during this transformation.One of the most popular key players, Solvay increased its production capacity into a double for the High-Performance Polymer SOLEF-polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) in China at their plant which results in the company reinforcing its leadership in lithium-ion batteries.
