Global Boron Trifluoride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Boron trifluoride is a colorless, corrosive gas with a pungent odor. It is used in the manufacture of aluminum and other fluorinated compounds and as a etching agent in semiconductor fabrication.

Sulfuric Acid Method:

Sulfuric acid method is used for the production of boron trifluoride. It is a highly reactive and corrosive chemical, which has wide applications in metallurgical and industrial processes. The method involves the reaction of sulfuric acid with calcium fluoride or sodium fluoride to produce boron trifluoride as a by-product.

Thermal Decomposition Method:

The thermal decomposition method is used to produce boron trifluoride (NF3), which is a chemical compound. NF3 has the ability to remove moisture from air and can be used in various applications such as for cleaning silicon wafers in semiconductor manufacturing, desiccant drying for space missions, removing moisture from gas streams and dry cleaning of circuit boards.

Application Insights:

The boron trifluoride used in the sulfuric acid method accounts for a major share of over 60% in terms of volume as well as revenue. The product is extensively utilized to produce high purity H2SO4 which has wide applications across several industries including pharmaceuticals, chemical synthesis, and oil & gas. In addition, it is also widely used as a catalyst in the production of other chemicals such Borax (Borate) which further drives its demand.

The antioxidant segment accounted for over 10% market share by volume on account of growing demand from various end-use industries globally coupled with rising awareness regarding health benefits associated with antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect against free radical damage to lipids, proteins and DNA that causes cell death and aging process resulting into reduced immunity and increased risk of chronic diseases among others leading to higher adoption rate among consumers globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the leading regional market in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global boron production, which is mainly attributed to low labor costs and easy availability of land. China emerged as a major consumer owing to its growing chemical industry. In addition, increasing demand from other Asian countries such as India and Japan will drive the APAC regional market further.

The Latin American market also presents immense potential for Boron Trifluoride (BF3) due to high mineral reserves across Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru & Chile that are yet untapped opportunities for domestic producers coupled with growing demand from end-use industries such as automotive & aerospace in these countries will drive this segment at a significant pace over the next eight years. Moreover Boron Trifluoride Market by country in Latin America (Brazil, Argentina etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as electronics and semiconductors
  • Growing application in fiberglass insulation and other construction materials
  • Rising popularity of boron trifluoride as a precursor for manufacturing optical fibers
  • Increasing use of the gas in chemical processing and refining operations
  • Growing investments in research and development to develop new applications for boron trifluoride
