Hydrazine hydrate is a highly reactive chemical compound that appears colorless with a pungent smell. It is widely used in polymerization and across the pharmaceutical industry. It is used as a foaming agent across the polymer industry in the production of polymers. Moreover, its derivative is used in agrochemicals.
Global hydrazine hydrate market was valued at US$ 478.18 Million in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.18 % during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).
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 production yield. Growing demand for food due to increasing population around the globe is creating a need for high production yield. This is augmenting the demand for pesticides and fertilizers, which in turn is fostering the market growth for hydrazine hydrate.
Growing demand from the water treatment industry is also propelling the hydrazine hydrate market growth. It easily removes the contaminants and heavy metals from water and offers higher productivity and reliability in water treatment. Growing demand for clean water due to the reduced availability of water on the earth is creating demand for hydrazine hydrate for treating wastewater and making it drinkable and reusable.
The COVID-19 pandemic has moderately affected the hydrazine hydrate market, with demand for polymers and blowing agents slumping on a global scale. Also, restrictions on international trade and lockdown regulations on the operations of the chemicals industry is projected to limit short-term demand in the market.
