Hydrazine hydrate is a highly reactive chemical compound that appears colorless with a pungent smell. It is widely used across polymerization and the pharmaceutical industry. It is used as a foaming agent across the polymer industry in the production of polymers. Moreover, its derivative is also used in the agrochemicals.
The global hydrazine hydrate market is estimated to account for US$ 4, 28,257.7 thousand in terms of value and 1, 40,956.7 Tons in terms of volume by the end of 2019.
Increasing demand for hydrazine hydrate from the agrochemical industry is augmenting the market growth. Hydrazine hydrate is widely used in the manufacturing of hydrogels, pesticides, and plant growth regulators which are further used in improving the yield production. Growing demand for food due to increasing populations around the globe is creating a need for high yield production. This is augmenting the demand for pesticides and fertilizers, which in turn fostering the market growth of the hydrazine hydrate.
Growing demand for the product from the water treatment industry is propelling the market growth of the hydrazine hydrate. It easily removes the contaminants and heavy metals from the water and also offer higher productivity and reliability in the water treatment. Growing demand for clean water due to limited availability of the water on earth is creating demand for hydrazine hydrate for treating wastewater and make it drinkable and reusable.
