Region :Global | Report ID: FBI102342 | Status : Ongoing



Fluoroboric acid is a colorless inorganic compound which exist in liquid form at room temperature and chemical formula HBF4. It is widely used to manufacture various fluoroborate compounds such as Tin tetrafluorobotrate, copper tetrafluorobotrate, lead tetrafluorobotrate, zinc tetrafluorobotrate, potassium tetrafluorobotrate, ammonium tetrafluorobotrate, sodium tetrafluorobotrate and others. Fluoroboric acid is available in the market in standard concentrations ranging from 41% to 50%. It is a very strong acid and is often diluted using water and solvents like diethyl ether. Its manufacturing bases are concentrated in Asia-Pacific region due to the abundant raw material resources in the region.     

Fluoroboric acid is widely adopted in electroplating and metal surface tratment applications. It is effective etching agent that drives its demad. Besides, its usage in the manufacturing of fluoroborates and diazo salts is of industrial importance and consumes significant amount of fluoroboric acid.

The global Fluoroboric acid market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. The Fluoroboric acid market is dominated by the Asia-Pacific region, for both production and consumption. Major manufacturing countries in the region are China, Japan, South Korea and India. The metal processing and electroplating industry in the region drives the market demand. The slowdown in the automotive industry, which is one of the major end-users of electroplating, has resulted in slow market growth in developed regions such as North America and Europe. Also low demand for heavy industrial equipment has affected the market gorwth. Thus, North America and Europe regions are expected to witness relatively slow growths over the forecast period. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are relatively small markets of fluoroboric acid with limited number of suppliers in the regions. The political and economical instability in Latin America has impacted the demand and supply of fluoroboric acid in the region. However, with the improvement in economic and political conditions in the region, the market is expected to experience upsurge in the demand. The demand in the Middle East & Africa is also expected to moderately rise with the developments in heavy indutrial equipment industry in the region.
