Market outlook of the ferric chloride market

Ferric chloride is used as a coagulant in the application of waste water and sewage water treatment and printed circuit boards (PCB) manufacturing. Industrially ferric chloride is much more important than ferrous chloride. The high demand from wastewater treatment plants, particularly in western Europe, is driving the growth of this market. Technavio’s market research analyst estimates the global ferric chloride market to witness a steady growth at a rate of around 4% during the forecast period.

The stringent regulations imposed on companies during the manufacturing and shipment of ferric chloride products is expected to deter the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, liquid ferric chloride reacts with most metals, and should be dispensed into plastic or glass containers. Non-compliance with the regulations can lead to substantial penalties and cancellation of the license.
