Global Fluorine Market Outlook 2017-2022

Global Fluorine Market Outlook 2017-2022

Fluorine (F), most reactive chemical element and the lightest member of the halogen elements, or Group 17 (Group VIIa) of the periodic table. Its chemical activity can be attributed to its extreme ability to attract electrons (it is the most electronegative element) and to the small size of its atoms. Fluorine gas is used captively for the production of various inorganic fluorides. The preparation of fluorides of an element in its highest oxidation state makes use of fluorine’s oxidizing and fluorinating ability. These fluorides nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), and tetrafluoromethane (CF4) among others. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is used as a gaseous dielectric for electrical and electronic equipment and a tracer gas for determining ventilation rates and air movements in buildings. Nitrogen-fluorine compound is a colorless, odorless, nonflammable gas. It finds increasing use as an etchant in microelectronics. Sulfur hexafluoride is used as an excellent gaseous electrical insulator.

According to Gen Consulting Company, the fluorine market will increase at a CAGR of 7.28 percent during the period of 2017 to 2022, to attain an anticipated value of USD 1,629.39 million by the end of the forecast period.
