Global Paraformaldehyde Market 2017-2021

About Paraformaldehyde

An aldehyde is an organic compound containing a functional group, – CHO, with a carbonyl center (a carbon double-bonded to oxygen), the carbon atom also bonded to hydrogen and to an R group (any generic alkyl or side chain). Some examples of aldehydes are ethanal, glucose, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and benzaldehyde. Formaldehyde and acetaldehyde are the widely used aldehydes. Paraformaldehyde is obtained by the polymerization of formaldehyde. It is a white crystalline solid. Though it is a soluble alkali, it is insoluble in alcohol, ether, and water. It has the odor of formaldehyde because of decomposition. Paraformaldehyde is generally prepared with purity concentration of 91% or 93% by weight.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global paraformaldehyde market to grow at a CAGR of 5.96% during the period 2017-2021.
