The Global Persulfates Market is projected to register a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The COVID-19 impacted the metal's production as the mining was interrupted by lockdown regulations and the safety of workers. Thus the persulphates market was negatively impacted as they are used to clean the surface of metals in the electrical components industry. The coronavirus pandemic has had a considerable impact on the electronics industry as the supply chain of electronic components disrupted. Furthermore, the oil and gas industry in which persulphates are used as gel breakers is also negatively impacted by COVID-19 as the demand decreased. In India, the amount of crude oil produced in October 2020 was 2.568 million tonnes. When compared to domestic production in October 2019, this is 6.24 percent lower. Natural gas output was also down compared to the same month last year. Domestic natural gas production in October 2020 was 2,418.88 million standard cubic meters, down 8.41% from October 2019. The global cosmetics industry was also negatively affected, which affected demand of market studied. The revenue from global cosmetics industry fell from approximately USD 89.8 billion in 2019 to 87 billion in 2020, witnessing a decline of around 3.1% in 2020. However, the condition is expected to recover in 2021, thereby restoring the growth trajectory of the market over the forecast period.

  • Over the medium term, major factors driving the market studied are increasing demand for persulfate in the electronics industry and growing demand in the paper, pulp, and textile industry.
  • On the flipside, issues related to the storage and transportation of persulfate and negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic are the major restraints that are expected to hinder the market growth.
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market globally, with the largest consumption from countries, like China, India, and Japan.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Electronics Segment

  • A persulfate (or peroxysulfate) is a compound containing sulfur anions in normal tetrahedral geometry typical for the S(VI) oxidation state. The persulfate salts are strong oxidizers.
  • The growing demand for persulfates in the electronics industry due to usage in cleaning and etching of printed circuit substrates is projected to propel the persulfate market during the forecast period.
  • Persulfates are used for surface cleanings of metals, like brass, copper, nickel, aluminum, zinc, and titanium, before coating, plating, and adhesive bonding on electronic components, which is expected to boost the persulfates demand and stimulate its market.
  • The United States electronics market is the largest market in the world, in terms of size. It is expected to remain the leading market during the forecast period, owing to the usage of advanced technology, increase in the number of R&D centers, and increasing demand from consumers. There is a high demand for newer and faster electronic products, due to the rapid pace of innovation, the advancement of technology, and R&D activities in the electronics industry. There is growth in the number of manufacturing plants and development centers in the United States, focusing on high-end products.
  • The German electronic industry is Europe's biggest and the fifth-largest, globally. The electrical and electronics industry accounted for 11% of the total German industrial production and about 3% of the country's gross domestic product (GDP). Moreover, the electrical and electronics industry accounts for around 23% of the entire FDI of the country.
  • Furthermore, the Japanese electronics industry is one of the largest in the world, and according to JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association), in terms of value, annual electronic component production increased by around 6.9% in 2020 compared to the previous year. The electronic component production value in Japan was around YEN 2.8 trillion in the year 2020.
  • The global printed circuit boards market is expected to witness a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period, and it is projected to reach USD 70 billion by 2024 due to rising demand for semiconductors devices. Thus, this may increase the demand for persulfates in printed circuit boards and boost the persulfate market during the forecast period.
  • Therefore, due to the factors mentioned above, the market studied is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market for persulfate during the forecast period. In countries, like China, India, and Japan, due to the increasing demand from various end-user industries, such as polymers, electronics, and cosmetics and personal care, the demand for persulfate has been increasing in the region.
  • The growing preference for polymers over metals and rising consumer appliances demand in the region is boosting the polymer initiator sector in the region, which is stimulating the persulfate market in the region.
  • Persulfates are also used for oxidative degradation of toxic substances and chemicals in wastewater, making the water treatment process easy. Due to this, there is a surge in demand for persulfates for water treatment applications.
  • Additionally, changing fashion and lifestyle trends may propel the market growth of hair dye and, consequently, persulfate due to their application in hair bleaches and hair lighteners to decolorize hair by oxidizing colors present in the hair shaft. The Asia-Pacific hair color market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period, which will boost the persulfate market size.
  • China is the world second largest cosmetics market and emerging as the largest market in terms of cosmetics and skin care products, globally. The Chinese cosmetics and skin care market, which includes a wide variety of industries, such as makeup, skin care, hair care, personal hygiene, experienced growth in 2019-2020. Furthermore, the continuous growth in population is another factor fueling the demand for cosmetics products in the country. This, in turn, is augmenting the growth of the market studied.
  • China is the world leader in many types of goods and is the largest industrial hub. China's wastewater treatment industry broadly covers the treatment of influent, sewage treatment and water recycling and the industries are investing more to treat industrial waste water.
  • The Asia-Pacific electronic industry grew rapidly in the recent past, owing to the high demand from countries, like India and China. China is a strong, favorable market for electronics producers, owing to the country's low labor cost and flexible policies. Also, the Indian electronics market is expected to reach USD 400 billion by 2025. Additionally, India is expected to become the fifth-largest consumer electronics and appliances industry in the world by 2025.
  • According to the Government of India, electronics manufacturing in the country is expected to register an annual growth rate of over 30% over the next five years. The country's electronic production is expected to grow at least by USD 153 billion in the next five years. Around 22 domestic and international firms, including Apple, Samsung, Lava, Dixon, and so forth, have lined up with proposals for mobile phone production over the next five years.
  • China is the world's largest consumer electronics producer, especially for the brown goods product category. It is the world's most extensive electronics manufacturing ecosystem and supply chain, with more than five times the electronics suppliers based in Japan. However, owing to rising labor cost and trade tensions with the United States, the manufacturers are shifting from China to other Asian countries, such as India and Vietnam.
  • Therefore, the factors mentioned above, coupled with government support, contribute to the increasing demand for persulfate during the forecast period.
