Fluorosilicic acid, an organic liquid, is a by-product of phosphoric acid and hydrogen fluoride. It is usually used in toothpastes, and also for fluoridation of water for maintaining fluoride level in water by municipal corporations. Tooth decay can be prevented by maintaining the fluoride levels. Fluorosilicic acid is liquid in nature, hence it is easy to handle and occupational hazards of handling fine power can be prevented. Fluorosilicic acid’s increasing demand in fluoridation of drinking water is expected to be the major market driver. Increasing demand from textile industry is also expected to boost fluorosilicic acid market, as it is use in removing rust and stains from the fabrics. However, fuming property and corrosive nature of fluorosilicic acid may hamper its demand.Fluorosilicic acid is a by-product of phosphate fertilizer industry, therefore it may be contaminated with radioactive elements and heavy metals which may act as market restraint.
Fluorosilicic acid is used in different applications such aselectroplating, oil well acidizing, sterilization, commercial laundry, wood preservative, neutralizing agent, stain and rust removing, and for tanning of ceramic, glassand animal hides. It is used in manufacturing commercial detergents such as silicon tetrafluoride, cryolite and other fluorosilicicates.
By region, market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and RoW. North America has been the largest consumer of fluorosilicic acid. Europe has been the second largest consumer. Government regulations in United States and Europe are forcing municipal corporations to use fluorosilicic acid as fluoridating agent in public drinking water to prevent tooth decay of the population. European countries have been using fluorosilicic acid for tanning animal hides and skin, and for fluoridation of drinking water.Growing application in mouth wash and other dental products are expected to increase North American and European markets. China was largest producer of fluorosilicicacid, because of abundant raw materials and large number of players. Asia Pacific is expected to be high market potential for fluorosilicic acid. Increasing disposable incomes and changing lifestyles has been driving commercial laundry market and dental care in Asia Pacific region
