Market Overview:

The global hexachloroacetone market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. Hexachloroacetone is used as an intermediate in the production of pesticides, herbicides, and other agrochemicals. It is also used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and dyes. Hexachloroacetone is available in two grades – 98% purity and 99% purity. The demand for hexachloroacetone is highest in Asia Pacific followed by Europe and North America.

Global Hexachloroacetone Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Hexachloroacetone is an organic compound with the formula Cl3CCH2CO. It is a colorless liquid that is soluble in organic solvents. Hexachloroacetone was formerly used as a precursor to pesticides, but its production has been discontinued.

98% Purity:

98% Purity is a colorless and highly flammable liquid. It has a strong odor similar to that of chlorine. 98% Purity is used as an intermediate in the production of chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides.

99% Purity:

99% purity is a very high quality grade of Hexachloroacetone (HCA), which means that less than 1% of other ingredient can be found in the final product. 99% Purity is used as feedstock for manufacturing various products such as solvents, adhesives & sealants, and paints & coatings among others. 99% Purity HCA has been certified by European Pharmacopoeia and U.

Application Insights:

Pesticides was the dominant application segment and accounted for over 60% of total demand in 2016. The product is used as an active ingredient in pesticides, which are primarily aimed at killing insects. Increasing use of hexachloroacetone-based pesticides to combat malaria mosquitoes has been a major factor driving the overall market growth across various regions.

Herbicides were the second largest application segment accounting for over 20% of total demand in 2016. It is also used as a solvent for manufacturing other herbicides such as glyphosate and paraquat dichlormate among others.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a share of over 30%. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. North America has stringent regulations on pesticides and other chemicals, which are majorly imported from China. Thus, it has a strong demand for HDCA as it is produced locally in the U.S., thereby driving its prices up significantly.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions with a CAGR exceeding 6% during the forecast period owing to rapid urbanization along with increasing pesticide and herbicide consumption in countries such as India, China, Japan, Indonesia among others will drive product demand across this region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and plastics
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of Hexachloroacetone among consumers
  • Rising investments by key players in research and development to develop new applications for Hexachloroacetone
  • Expansion of manufacturing capacities by key players to cater to the growing demand for Hexachloroacetone globally
  • Growing popularity of Hexachloroacetone as a green solvent owing to its environmental friendly properties
