Dublin, Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Paraformaldehyde Market by Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The paraformaldehyde market size was valued at $1.6 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $2.8 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2030.
Paraformaldehyde is a white crystalline solid, which is widely used as a disinfectant and fixative. Polyformaldehyde has a strong pungent odor similar to that of formaldehyde due to decomposition. It contains 89-91% formaldehyde and 9-11% water. Vacuum drying process and spray drying are the two major processes used to manufacture paraformaldehyde. It is toxic and is a potential carcinogen.
The significant growth of the agricultural sector is expected to foster the demand for paraformaldehyde, thereby driving the growth of the global paraformaldehyde market. Paraformaldehyde is depolymerized and used as a fumigant, disinfectant, bactericide, and fixative. Paraformaldehyde is further used to make thermoplastics. Therefore, the rise in demand for thermoplastics in the construction industry and the development of the plastics industry promote market growth.
Moreover, paraformaldehyde is used to make resin adhesives, which, in turn, are used to make particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, and plywood using melamine, phenol, or other reactants. In addition, it is used to synthesize trimethylolpropane, melamine resin, urea resin, ethylene glycol & ion exchange resin, pentaerythritol, phenolic resin, and N-methylolacrylamide.
Thus, the increase in applications of paraformaldehyde notably contributes toward the growth of the global market. However, the toxicity and carcinogenicity of paraformaldehyde are expected to hinder market growth. In addition, the transportation of paraformaldehyde is hazardous, which limits market growth.
