Global Ion-exchange resins Market - 2019-2026
The Global Ion-exchange resins Market was valued at USD xx million in 2017 and is estimat-ed to reach USD xx million by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025.
Ion exchange is a reversible chemical reaction where dissolved ions are removed from the solution and replaced with other ions of the same or similar electrical charge. Ion Exchange resin is not a chemical reactant in and of itself. Ion Exchange resin is instead a physical me-dium that facilitates ion exchange reactions. The resin itself is composed of organic poly-mers that form a network of hydrocarbons. Throughout the polymer matrix are ion ex-change sites, where so-called “functional groups” of either positively-charged ions (cations) or negatively-charged ions (anions) are affixed to the polymer network. These functional groups readily attract ions of an opposing charge.
Ion-exchange resins are used in wide variety of Industries for Water purification, Production of high-purity water. Increasing Industrialization is fuelling the demand for water treatment which requires ion-exchange resins. Water contamination is an important issue globally, and new drinking water quality regulations have been introduced for contaminants such as disin-fectant by-products, arsenic, nitrate, perchlorate, and uranium. Specialized Ion-exchange resins are crucial for the removal of these harmful substances.
In industrial and domestic applications, ion-exchange resins are used for the removal of cal-cium, magnesium, iron, and manganese salts from water, for purification of sugar, and the concentration of valuable elements, such as gold, silver, and uranium from mineral ores. In chemical analysis, ion-exchange resins are used for the separation or concentration of ionic substances, and in chemical synthesis, some ion-exchange resins have been used as effec-tive catalysts, notably in esterification and hydrolysis reactions. They are also used for the separation of trace amounts of metals.
Increasing popularity of Reverse osmosis which is another major process for purification remains a challenge for the Ion-exchange resins market.
Global Ion-exchange resins Market is segmented by type and application. By Type, the mar-ket is segmented into Cationic resins, Anionic resins, and others such as chelating resins. Cationic resins segment consists of strong and weak acid cationic acid resins whereas anion-ic resins include strong and weak base anionic resins. The cationic segment accounted for the most significant share of the market because Strong acid cation (SAC) exchange resins are among the most widely used resins. Strong acid cation (SAC) exchange resins are used for softening applications, as they are effective at complete removal of hardness ions such as magnesium (Mg+) or calcium (Ca2+). Weak acid cation (WAC) exchange resins are used for demineralization and dealkalization applications. The anionic resins segment had the second largest market share. Anionic resins are used for used for demineralization, dealkalization, and desilication, as well as removal of total organic carbon (TOC) or other organics. Other segment includes absorbent resin, and chelating resins which are a type of specialty resins are gaining huge traction. Chelating resins are used for selective removal of certain metals and other substances. Others segment of the Ion-exchange resins Market is expected to grow at the fastest rate.
By application, Ion-exchange resins Market is segmented into Power, Water Treatment, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Others. Power and Water Treatment industry are the biggest consumers of Ion-exchange resins. Ion exchange resins provide a cost-effective and efficient method for creating and maintaining a continual supply of ultra-pure water which is an es-sential component of the power generation industry. Power segment accounted for the largest share of the market. Ion-exchange resins are used in Industrial Water Treatment sys-tem to operate the plant at peak efficiency and maximum cost-effectiveness. Industrializa-tion and water scarcity are fuelling the demand for water treatment. Water Treatment is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. In the chemical in-dustry, they are used as a catalyst, for separation of metals, brine purification or decalcifi-cation, and for the production and purification of chemical compounds ion-exchange resins are used in Pharmaceutical industry due to their versatile properties as drug delivery vehi-cles. Among other application, they are also used in Food & beverage industry and metal industry.
