Global Sodium Borohydride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Sodium Borohydride is a white solid that is used as a reducing agent in organic synthesis.

Powder Type:

Powder type is a method of manufacturing sodium borohydride which does not require drying or heating. It consists of fine particles that are evenly distributed in nature and can be used as an alternative to crystalline form for certain applications. Powder type has higher purity levels compared to its liquid counterpart, owing to the fact that there is no need for evaporating off water during the process thus maintaining high purity levels throughout the product.

Solution Type:

Solution type is a classification based on the chemical nature of the product. It helps in classifying borohydride products as well as their applications. The solution types are classified into three categories which include Sub-category 1, Sub-category 2 and Sub-category 3.

Sub category 1 includes Boric acid esters such as methyl, ethyl and butyl borate sub category 2 includes Hydroxide anion (OH) such as sodium hydroxide.

Application Insights:

The pulp and paper application segment led the global sodium borohydride market in 2017. The segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to rising demand for pulp and paper from various end-use industries, such as construction, publishing, packaging, etc. Rising demand for wood-based papers in printing ink applications is also expected to propel industry growth over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific sodium borohydride market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, metal reduction, and fuel cell applications. The growing population in countries such as China and India coupled with rising disposable income is expected to have a positive impact on industry growth.

The demand for sodium borohydride in Europe was valued at USD X million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2030 due Borbor Diahkira Nasution (BNN), who presented about its properties during an invited seminar held by Indonesia Pulp & Paper Association (IPPA) on March 31st 2017 at IPPA Head Office Jakarta Indonesia.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for sodium borohydride in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries as a reducing agent and bleaching agent.
  • Growing demand for sodium borohydride in the food industry as a preservative and flavor enhancer.
  • Rising demand from emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico due to increasing population and rising income levels.
  • Increasing use of sodium borohydride in water treatment plants to remove harmful pollutants from water supplies.
