Industrial Hydrofluoric Acid market size, share & industry analysis, By Type ( Anhydrous Hydrofluoric Acid, Diluted Hydrofluoric Acid (Above 50% Concentration), Diluted Hydrofluoric Acid (Below 50% Concentration)), By Application (Fluorocarbon Production, Fluorinated Derivative Production, Metal Pickling, Glass Etching and Cleaning, Oil Refining, Uranium Fuel Production, Others) and regional forecast 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103693 | Status : Ongoing



Industrial hydrofluoric acid is a colorless inorganic acid, with a sharp pungent odor. It is produced from the reaction of hydrogen fluoride with water. The hydrofluoric acid is widely used for the production of fluorine compounds which includes fluorocarbons, fluorides, and fluoropolymers. Furthermore, in laboratories and industries, hydrofluoric acid is utilized in the etching glass, enamel, removing rust & stains, and cleaning brass & crystal. The industrial hydrofluoric acid finds its application in the fluorocarbon production, metal pickling, uranium fuel production, fluorinated derivative production, and oil refining.

The industrial hydrofluoric acid is utilized as a base material or intermediate to form the number of fluorochemicals. As a raw material, it is utilized as a fluorine source for the manufacturing of fluorocarbons, which includes hydro fluoro olefins, hydro fluorocarbons, and hydro chlorofluorocarbons. These fluorocarbons are widely used in the air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. Additionally, owing to the strong corrosive qualities of hydrofluoric acid, it is also utilized in the commercial automotive cleaners, to remove rust, stain, and water-spot. Hence, these positive factors will fuel the market growth of industrial hydrofluoric acid during the forecast timeline.

However, hydrofluoric acid is a highly toxic and corrosive substance. The direct contact or inhalation of hydrofluoric acid can cause severe health impact. This further reduces the adoption of industrial hydrofluoric acid and anticipated to restrict market growth.
