CHPTAC Market Growth Size Insights:

The global ChloroHydroxyPropylTrimethyAmmonium Chloride (CHPTAC) market is estimated to reach at a high CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period 2022-2029. CHPTAC is an abbreviation of 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chloride. Chemically, Liquid Cationic Etherification Agent is a molecular formula C6H15Cl2NO, having a molecular weight of 188.10. It will immediately transform into an epoxy structure under alkaline conditions, which reacts with starch, guar gum, and other ground substances and achieves cationization.

Moreover, it has wide application in the paper and textile industry. The cationic starch acts as a paper reinforcer and paper binder to increase the dry strength of paper whereas, CHPTAC is used to improve the bonding of the dyes or colors to fibers. Thus, the growth of the industries mentioned above is a significant factor expected to drive the global 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium chloride market during the forecast period.

Besides, it is also utilized in the treatment of water and personal care. Due to the increase in demand for unique care products, the industry's growth is expected to increase the need for the 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium chloride market.

Market Dynamics

The increase in surge for cationic starch and cationic modified flocculant in the paper and water treatment industry, respectively, is expected to drive the market growth of the 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium chloride (CHPTAC) market during the forecast period.

An increase in demand for cationic modified flocculant in the water treatment is expected to drive the CHPTAC market

The wastewater produced from different industries usually contains very fine suspended solids, dissolved solids, metals, and other impurities. Due to the particles' tiny size, bringing these particles closer to make a more solemn mass for settling and filtration becomes challenging.

There are various conventional and advanced methods to treat these wastewaters. Among these methods, coagulation/flocculation is one of the most widely used solid-liquid separation processes for removing suspended and dissolved solids in industrial wastewater. It is a simple and efficient method for wastewater treatment and has been extensively used to treat various types of wastewater such as palm oil mill effluent, textile wastewater, pulp mill wastewater, oily wastewater, and others. Henceforth, increasing the use of flocculant is expected to boost the CHPTAC market during the forecasted period.

The surge in demand for cationic starch in the paper and textile industry is expected to increase the CHPTAC market growth

Cationic starch is witnessing growing demand as the paper industry's wet-end additives as it helps improve mechanical strength, reduces wastewater pollution, and enables faster drainage.

As per Environmental Paper Network, there is a substantial increase in demand for paper, year by year, and recently exceeded 400 million tons per year. More than half of this consumption occurs in China, the USA and Japan, with a further quarter in Europe. The global average is 55 kg per person per year, while regionally, people's consumption in North America is the highest, registering four times that, i.e., 215 kg/per person. Henceforth, the increase in demand and consumption of paper is driving the growth of the CHPTAC market.

Additionally, cationic starch is also witnessing increasing demand in salt-free dying of cotton fiber. Chemical cationization is allowing cotton fibers to be dyed without using salt. Moreover, cotton fabric cationized using CHPTAC has resulted in significantly higher color strength. It also enhanced dye uptake properties, resulting in better dyeing without using or adding salt.

Therefore, the overall surge in demand for cationic starch in the paper and textile industry is expected to boost the CHPTAC market growth.

However, environmental issues, high manufacturing & logistics costs and available alternatives are expected to restrain the market growth of CHPTAC in the forecasted period. Moreover, the outbreak of coronavirus across the globe is likely to hinder the studied market's growth.

Paper Industry to Account for Largest Share in CHPTAC Market

The paper industry emerges as one of the largest users of CHPTAC in the papermaking process. Paper-based packaging is gaining popularity owing to its versatility and cost-efficiency. Paper in the packaging industry is increasing consistently in recent years, especially in North America and Europe. Statista's global production of paper and cardboard stood at 419.72 million metric tons in 2018. More than half of that production was attributable to packaging paper, while almost one-third was attributable to a graphic. The packaging industry uses a form on a large scale to develop various packaging types such as paperboard, containerboard, shipping sacks, and paper bags.

Traditionally, paper manufacturers worldwide used a high quantity of retention agents, especially cationic substances. In recent years, the addition of these substances in paper manufacturing has triggered CHPTAC industry economically. Moreover, in the last few years, semisynthetic compounds produced from natural polymers have found many paper industry applications.

Additionally, the rapid growth of the textile industry and increasing water treatment demands are, in turn, boosting the development of the global CHPTAC market.

One of the significant applications of CHPTAC is its use as a cationic reagent in the personal care industry. Thus, the personal care industry's growth is expected to result in an increased demand for CHPTAC over the forecast period.
