The global hydrazine market is expected to grow on account of increasing demand from end-use industries such as polymer, agrochemical, pharmaceutical, and water treatment. Hydrazine is majorly used in water treatment, polymerization, and as a blowing agent. Growth in the aerospace industry in the past few years and increasing space explorations is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
Hydrazine is used as fuel in rockets for space missions and in gas precursors preparation used in airbags. Hydrazine is used in onboard space vehicles as a propellant in order to reduce dissolved oxygen concentration and control water pH in huge industrial boilers. Hydrazine is used by the F-16 fighter jet to fuel the aircraft’s emergency power unit. Increasing hydrazine application for the refining and purification process in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific is expected to drive demand and positively impact the market growth over the forecast period. Key hydrazine applications include refining, effluent treatment, purification, and as a reducing agent in boiler water treatment. Hydrazine is also used in fuel cells which are cost-effective and supply more power. Increasing hydrazine applications in refining, purification, and effluent treatment are anticipated to complement demand and drive the market growth over the forecast period. Hydrazine is used for treasure-able ores recovery and purifying metals such as gold, platinum, and silver under the refining and purification process. Hydrazine use in refining and purification leads to early recovery and higher purity. Under effluent treatment, hydrazine is used for contaminants and heavy metals removal which in turn offers higher productivity, selectivity, and reliability for wastewater treatment applications.
Raschig process is the most commonly used process for commercial hydrazine production characterized by reduced yields. Hydrazine exposure leads to headaches, nausea, and throat irritation. The health concern is expected to hinder hydrazine market growth and pose challenges to industry participants over the forecast period. Growing fuel cells demand and increasing hydrazine application in the pharmaceutical industry as an intermediate is expected to create new avenues and yield lucrative opportunities for industry participants over the forecast period. Rising blowing agents demand in the polymer industry is anticipated to create immense opportunities for industry participants over the forecast period.
Europe is projected to remain a key regional market in terms of hydrazine production over the forecast period. Germany dominates hydrazine production in Europe followed by UK, France, and Italy. Growing pharmaceutical and water treatment industry is expected to drive hydrazine demand in Europe and in turn augment hydrazine market growth over the forecast period. Asia Pacific and North America are slated to witness considerable hydrazine market growth owing to increasing hydrazine application as a precursor to blowing agent in the polymer industry. Europe is followed by North America in terms of consumption owing to increasing hydrazine demand in agrochemical and water treatment industries in countries such as the U.S. and Canada Asia Pacific is growing as regional hydrazine and its derivatives consumption market due to increasing hydrazine applications in growing end-use industries such as pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial, polymer, agrochemicals, and water treatment. Expanding manufacturing base and production facilities in China is meeting local hydrazine hydrate market demand in the polymer industry which is anticipated to drive global hydrazine market growth in Asia Pacific over the forecast period. In terms of hydrazine consumption, the Hydrazine market in Latin America is expected to grow owing to hydrazine hydrate increasing use in the agriculture industry and water treatment. Middle East is anticipated to witness a similar trend owing to increasing hydrazine hydrate application in the polymer industry.
