Intensifying Use of Potassium Fluoroborate (KBF4) in Soldering Agents to Boost Market Growth
The potassium fluoroborate acts as a flux in the production of soldering agents, helping to remove impurities from the molten metal and improve the flow of the alloy. This results in a high-quality soldering agent with an even distribution of alloy particles. The electronics sector requires soldering and brazing to join components, while the automotive sector uses soldering and brazing to join metal parts together. As the demand for electronics and automotive products increases, so does the need for soldering and brazing work. For instance, as per the Index of Industrial Production, computer, electronic, and optical products represent 103 on average in India, up 12% from FY 2021–22. Over the past year, electronic goods exports have increased by 50% to USD 15 billion, compared to USD 10 billion in April–December 2022. Potassium fluoroborate has a high melting point, good thermal stability, and low volatility, which makes it an ideal material for soldering and brazing. Additionally, it does not corrode metals and helps to reduce the formation of oxide layers, which can interfere with the soldering process.
Global Potassium Fluoroborate Market: Regional Overview
The global potassium fluoroborate market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.
Rapid Growth in Petrochemicals, Oil and Gas Industry to Drive The Growth In The North America Region
The potassium fluoroborate market in the North America region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035 as the region is one of the key consumers of potassium fluoroborate market and has seen an increase in demand for the product over the past few years owing to the increasing number of industries operating in the region. Additionally, the region has seen an increase in investments in petrochemical and gas and oil infrastructure, along with rising production of oil and gas, which has further propelled the growth of the market in this region. The US Energy Information Administration predicts crude oil production in the United States will increase by 630,000 barrels per day to 12.6 million barrels per day in 2023. In addition, dry natural gas production in the U.S. has increased through October and November of 2022, exceeding monthly production records from before the pandemic. Potassium fluoroborate is used to reduce the corrosive effects of sulfuric acid in the production of petrochemicals, as well as in the refining of crude oil and natural gas. It also helps to improve the efficiency of catalysts and reduce the formation of gaseous pollutants. Also, the region has a robust industrial infrastructure, facilitating the manufacture and distribution of products based on potassium fluoroborate, as well as several key industry players who have invested heavily in research and development. Furthermore, the United States has access to plentiful raw materials, which gives the country a competitive edge over other countries.
Increasing use in Automobile Sector along with Increasing Vehicle Production to Drive the Growth in the Asia Pacific Region
The potassium fluoroborate market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to garner the highest CAGR by the end of 2035, backed by the growing demand for potassium fluoroborate from the electronics, automotive, and construction industries in the region, as well as the increasing investments in the manufacturing sector in the region. Automobiles are a big part of China’s economy. There were a total of 27 million units sold in the Chinese automobile industry in 2021, a number that was dominated by passenger cars, of which around 20 million were sold. Potassium fluoroborate is used in the manufacturing process of steel and other metals, as well as in the production of automobile components such as engines, brakes, and gearboxes. This has caused the demand for the metal to increase significantly, leading to the growth of the potassium fluoroborate market. Additionally, China is one of the leading producers of chemical products in the world, with a large number of factories producing a wide variety of chemicals. Potassium fluoborate provides a stable and safe source of fluoride ions for the production of agrochemicals. The fluoride ions are used in the production of electrolytes, which are an essential component in lithium-ion batteries. This makes it a useful and versatile chemical for various applications.
