LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global paraformaldehyde market report. This research report also lists 13 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Paraformaldehyde is obtained by the polymerization of formaldehyde. It is a white crystalline solid. Though it is a soluble alkali, it is insoluble in alcohol, ether, and water. It has the odor of formaldehyde because of decomposition. Paraformaldehyde is generally prepared with purity concentration of 91% or 93% by weight. Paraformaldehyde is used in a variety of applications. Agrochemicals and resins are the key drivers of the market. They are used in the production of resins such as ion exchange resins and melamine resins.

The shipping industry was stagnant in the past but has been registering growth in the past few years. There is an increasing demand for power boats, sail boats, cruise ships, and speed boats, which has led to an increase in marine traffic. In 2016, the world commercial fleet comprised more than 90,000 vessels. The high demand for power boats, sail boats, and others will drive the demand for resins.

Competitive vendor landscape

“The market is characterized by dedicated vendors engaged in the production of paraformaldehyde. Increasing growth rate of the market will attract new vendors. The threat of rivalry is currently moderate but can increase in the coming years. A majority of the vendors are located in APAC, especially in China,” says Shakeel Iqbal, a lead specialty chemicals research analyst from Technavio.
