Global Green Chelating Agents Market 2017-2021 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Green Chelating Agents Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the global green chelating agents market to grow at a CAGR of 5.78% during the period 2017-2021.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global green chelating agents market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of green chelating agents.

According to the report, most traditional chelating agents such as EDTA are poorly biodegradable. These chelating agents do not get absorbed in the soil surface in the environment. These chelating agents even resist degradation in activated sludge in wastewater treatment plants. Owing to this poor biodegradability combined with high water solubility, traditional chelators such as DTPA, EDTA, HEDTA, and organophosphates are readily released into the environment and have been detected in the rivers and lakes as well as in make-up water processed for drinking water.

The green chelating agents market is dominated by many conglomerates such as AkzoNobel, BASF, Dow Chemical, Kemira, and NIPPON SHOKUBAI. They are consolidating the industry. Due to their strong financial advantage over small- and medium-sized competitors, they are investing substantially in R&D and marketing. We expect market consolidation, as the major vendors in the market are likely to acquire smaller players or form strategic alliances with them. The key vendors have patented proprietary products that give them a first mover advantage. For instance, GLDA is marketed by AkzoNobel as Dissolvine.
