New York, USA, Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trifluoroacetic Acid Market Overview

According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Trifluoroacetic Acid Market Information by Type, by Application, and Region - Forecast till 2030”, the market is estimated to grow at a 5.27% CAGR to reach USD 467.6 Million by 2030.

Market Synopsis

Trifluoroacetic acid or TFA can be described as the simplest form of perfluoroorganic acid that is characterized by high dielectric constant, strong acidity, miscibility with most organic solvents as well as water, and relativity low boiling point of 71.8°C.

It is one of the most commonly deployed fine chemicals worldwide. Trifluoroacetic acid is developed via the electrochemical fluorination of acetic anhydride or acetyl chloride in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride with the use of the Simons process. After this, the hydrolysis process is carried out, which results in trifluoroacetyl fluoride in impressive yields.

TFA is widely used in organic synthesis, where it acts as a solvent or even as an acid catalyst for various organic transformations like rearrangements, solvolysis, oxidations, functional group deprotections, condensations, hydroarylations, and reductions, along with trifluoromethylation reactions.

Key Market Drivers

The shirking agricultural land and increasing demand for food lead to a demand for market

The increase in demand for cotton in various products like baby care, textiles, home furnishing, etc.

Market Competitive Landscape:

The affluent firms in the trifluoroacetic acid industry are:

  • Solvay

  • SRF Limited

  • Halocarbon LLC


  • Anhui Jin'ao Chemical Co. Ltd.


  • Midas Pharma GmbH

Market USP Covered:

Market Drivers:

The consistent shrinkage in agricultural land worldwide, plus, the mounting food demand in line with the surging population has raised the usage of trifluoroacetic acid anhydride in a variety of pesticides. Also, compared to other types of crops, pesticides are used extensively in cotton crops. The Organic Trade Association report in 2016 reveals that close to USD 4.6 billion value of pesticides is utilized for growing only cotton. Therefore, the surging use of cotton in a variety of products like textiles, baby care, feminine care, home furnishing, healthcare, and nonwovens will enhance the demand for pesticides, which will ultimately bolster the demand for trifluoroacetic acid.

Furthermore, TFA finds widespread use as an intermediary in various medical products. The massive burden of several diseases, rising awareness levels regarding different treatment options, and supportive government policies have elevated the need for pharmaceuticals, a factor that is expected to accelerate market growth in subsequent years.

The surge in government support for the medical industry, especially in India, with the 100% FDI approvals along with special incentives, as well as medical parks will mean an exponential rise in the medical sector. This will be a great opportunity for the TFA developers in the market.

Market Restraints:

Trifluoroacetic acid happens to be non-biodegradable and can be toxic for aquatic life. Owing to this, environmental concerns are rising, which will bring down product demand in several end-use sectors.

Furthermore, the wide range of alternatives to trifluoroacetic acid available in the market will also limit the market growth to some extent.
