Sodium Naphthalene Sulphonate Formaldehyde Market Trends




  • Wide-scale applications of naphthalene derivatives are driving the market growth




Market CAGR for sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde is being driven by the growing applications of naphthalene derivatives. Naphthalene derivatives are used in various end-use industries such as building & construction, textiles, detergent, agrochemicals, paints & coating, pulp & paper, oil & gas, rubber synthesis, pharmaceuticals, and leather tanning. The building & construction industry is increasing rapidly in emerging countries globally, which will play a major role in delivering growth opportunities to the naphthalene derivatives. Naphthalene derivatives are extensively utilized in agrochemical industries as insecticides and pesticides. 1-naphthyl-N-methylcarbamate (carbaryl) is one of the prominent insecticides utilized in the agricultural industry. Naphthalene acetic acid is used as a growth regulator in plants, enhancing the yield of cereals.


Moreover, sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde is a wetting agent that effectively disperses colloidal systems in aqueous media. The major commercial applications of sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde are in the textiles industry, which uses sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde's wetting and defoaming properties for bleaching and dying operations. The amino naphthalene sulfonic acids, replaced with amines and sulfonic acids, are intermediates to prepare many synthetic dyes. Naphthalene sulfonic acids synthesize 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol, the precursors for various pigments, rubber processing chemicals, dyestuffs, and other chemical products. In Croatia, naphthalene sulfonic acids derived from a natural mineral oil after distillation is utilized to treat skin diseases, including eczema. Therefore, the growing use of naphthalene derivatives in various end-use industries will create high growth opportunities for the market.


Additionally, sulfonated naphthalene formaldehyde enables fast mixing of concrete by improving flow properties. It is a non-hazardous and environment-friendly product. Sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde is known as a second-generation superplasticizer, a versatile product for formulation and compatible with admixtures. It improves the rheological properties of concrete, such as flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, and compressibility, and is used as a dispersing agent. The relative cost of sulfonated naphthalene formaldehyde is low, and it supports the use of fly ash, silica, and slag as cementitious supplementary, making it the most widely used superplasticizer in India as well internationally.


The stringent environmental regulatory norms regarding emissions reduction are attributed to play a crucial role in driving the adoption of alkylated naphthalene. Alkylated naphthalene is considered a more environmentally friendly alternative than traditional lubricant additives. This is due to the low toxicity and biodegradability, making it a preferred choice over conventional additives with potentially low health and environmental impacts. Furthermore, the rapid urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies have increased the demand for lubricants and related products, driving the sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde market revenue.


Sodium Naphthalene Sulphonate Formaldehyde Market Segment Insights


Sodium Naphthalene Sulphonate Formaldehyde Form Insights


The sodium naphthalene sulphonate formaldehyde market segmentation, based on form, includes liquid and powder. The powder segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue (0.92 Billion). In developing economies, category growth is driven by the easy availability of powdered forms of naphthalene derivatives at room temperature and their suitable transportation and packaging. However, the liquid is the fastest-growing category because the growing demand for liquid form naphthalene derivatives has been stimulated owing to the growth in the textile industry and increasing construction activities.
