Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Electronics Segment

  • A persulfate (or peroxysulfate) is a compound containing sulfur anions in normal tetrahedral geometry typical for the S(VI) oxidation state. The persulfate salts are strong oxidizers.
  • The growing demand for persulfates in the electronics industry due to usage in cleaning and etching of printed circuit substrates is projected to propel the persulfate market during the forecast period.
  • Persulfates are used for surface cleanings of metals, like brass, copper, nickel, aluminum, zinc, and titanium, before coating, plating, and adhesive bonding on electronic components, which is expected to boost the persulfates demand and stimulate its market.
  • The United States electronics market is the largest market in the world, in terms of size. It is expected to remain the leading market during the forecast period, owing to the usage of advanced technology, increase in the number of R&D centers, and increasing demand from consumers. There is a high demand for newer and faster electronic products, due to the rapid pace of innovation, the advancement of technology, and R&D activities in the electronics industry. There is growth in the number of manufacturing plants and development centers in the United States, focusing on high-end products.
  • The German electronic industry is Europe's biggest and the fifth-largest, globally. The electrical and electronics industry accounted for 11% of the total German industrial production and about 3% of the country's gross domestic product (GDP). Moreover, the electrical and electronics industry accounts for around 23% of the entire FDI of the country.
  • Furthermore, the Japanese electronics industry is one of the largest in the world, and according to JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association), in terms of value, annual electronic component production increased by around 6.9% in 2020 compared to the previous year. The electronic component production value in Japan was around YEN 2.8 trillion in the year 2020.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market for persulfate during the forecast period. In countries, like China, India, and Japan, due to the increasing demand from various end-user industries, such as polymers, electronics, and cosmetics and personal care, the demand for persulfate has been increasing in the region.
  • The growing preference for polymers over metals and rising consumer appliances demand in the region is boosting the polymer initiator sector in the region, which is stimulating the persulfate market in the region.
  • Persulfates are also used for oxidative degradation of toxic substances and chemicals in wastewater, making the water treatment process easy. Due to this, there is a surge in demand for persulfates for water treatment applications.
  • Additionally, changing fashion and lifestyle trends may propel the market growth of hair dye and, consequently, persulfate due to their application in hair bleaches and hair lighteners to decolorize hair by oxidizing colors present in the hair shaft. The Asia-Pacific hair color market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period, which will boost the persulfate market size.
  • China is the world second largest cosmetics market and emerging as the largest market in terms of cosmetics and skin care products, globally. The Chinese cosmetics and skin care market, which includes a wide variety of industries, such as makeup, skin care, hair care, personal hygiene, experienced growth in 2019-2020. Furthermore, the continuous growth in population is another factor fueling the demand for cosmetics products in the country. This, in turn, is augmenting the growth of the market studied.
  • China is the world leader in many types of goods and is the largest industrial hub. China's wastewater treatment industry broadly covers the treatment of influent, sewage treatment and water recycling and the industries are investing more to treat industrial waste water.
