  • In various industries, cleaning metallic surfaces is a common predicament. To solve this issue, metal cleaning chemicals are used.
  • With the growing manufacturing activities across the globe, the demand for acidic metal cleaning chemicals is projected to increase through the forecast period.

Germany to Dominate the European Market

  • The German economy is the largest in Europe and the fifth-largest in the world. In 2019, the German economy grew by about 0.6%, which had been its weakest growth rate in the last five years.
