This industry research report identifies Celanese, Chemanol, Ercros, INEOS, and PT. Dover Chemical as the key vendors in the global paraformaldehyde market. This industry research report also presents a comprehensive analysis of the market by application (agrochemical, resins, medical application, and others) and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Overview of the global paraformaldehyde market

Research analysis on the global paraformaldehyde market identifies that the rising demand for glyphosate will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Glyphosate, an organic phosphorus herbicide, is used in chemical weed control applications in orchards, mulberry fields, tea plantations, and rubber forests. It is one of the most effective herbicides and is increasingly used to enhance the agricultural yield. This will increase the demand for glyphosate and will subsequently fuel the growth of the paraformaldehyde market since it is one of the major raw materials for manufacturing glyphosate. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of around 6% by 2021.

The growing demand for thermoset composites will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the paraformaldehyde market during the next four years. Thermoset composites are made from glass, carbon, or aramid fibers and exhibit various properties including durability, low shrinkage, low smoke generation, and controlled surface finish. Additionally, they are also resistance to chemicals and flame and generate low smoke. Owing to their advantages such as easy customization, resistant to corrosion, and ability to use around magnetic and sensitive electronic equipment, the demand for these composites will increase in the coming years.
