Hydrochloric Acid Market by Quality (Synthetic, By-Product), Application, End-Use Industry (Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Textile, Steel, Oil & Gas, Chemical), Region (North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, South America). )
The globe Hydrochloric Acid Market is expected to grow from $2.5 billion in 2022 to $3.4 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period. The main driving factors behind the growth of the hydrochloric acid market are pickling of steel, production of inorganic compounds, pH control and neutralization, regeneration of ion exchangers and increasing demand for water and wastewater treatment.
Hydrochloric acid is a colorless liquid and, depending on the concentration, has a boiling point of 110 °C (383 K), 20.2 % solution to 48 °C (321 K), 38 % solution. This strong acid is highly corrosive and must be handled with appropriate safety precautions. Hydrochloric acid is used extensively in the steel, ore processing, oil well acidifying, and food industries. In the steel industry, it runs operations in a pickling plant that helps remove impurities such as carbon and rust. Demand for hydrochloric acid is increasing due to the growth of the steel industry in developing countries like China and India.
