Chelants, also known as chelating agents, complexing, or sequestering agents, are compounds that are able to form stable complexes with metal ions.
Chelants achieve this by coordinating with metal ions at a minimum of two sites, thus solubilizing and inactivating the metal ions that would otherwise produce adverse effects in the system on which they are used.
The technical barriers of chelants are relatively not high, resulting in numerous manufacturing enterprises. In the market, there are some relatively large enterprises, such as BASF, AkzoNobel, Fuyang Biotech, Dow, Dongxiao Biotech, Kaixiang BioChem, Taihe Chem, Huiyang Biotech, PMP, AVA Chemicals, and others. Biodegradable chelating agents are likely to capture a significant share of the chelating agents market in the coming years, especially in EU and USA, owing to potential health and environmental hazards associated with non-biodegradable organic chelating compounds.
Chelants have a wide range of application. The agrochemicals industry presents immense growth opportunities for the chelating agents market. Pharmaceutical and water treatment industries also offer huge potential. Cleaners & detergents and pulp & paper industries have largely contributed to the overall consumption of chelating agents in this region. The demand for chelants is expected to continue increasing during the remaining years of the forecast period of 2016-2021. Chelants industry will usher in a stable growth space.
As the same time, companies are focusing on technological innovation, equipment upgrades, and process improvements, to reduce costs and improve quality. With the snatch for market share in emerging regions, the competition in chelants industry will become more intense.
