Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Deliming Agent Market size is anticipated to cross USD 20 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of deliming agent was USD 8 Billion. The expansion of the leather sector is the main driver of the market. For instance, the leather and related products industry is expected to generate USD 55.90 billion in value added by 2024.  In 2023, leather industry witnessed a notable rise because of the growing demand for leather goods in a variety of industries, including furniture, automobiles, and fashion. The tanning of leather requires the use of deliming agents, particularly acid deliming agents. By using them, lime and other impurities are effectively removed from the rawhide, producing leather of the highest libre. Therefore, the deliming agent market is anticipated to increase steadily due to the growing demand for leather goods by consumers.

Furthermore, the use of nanotechnology in deliming agents is a new and very promising trend. Because nanoparticles are small enough to go inside complex surfaces, they can clean more effectively and use fewer chemicals, which is in line with sustainable standards. Manufacturers of deliming agents are increasingly collaborating with the textile, automotive, and electronics industries.

Deliming Agent Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Stringent Environmental Regulations - The strict environmental restrictions pertaining to the tanning and textile industries are a significant driving force behind the deliming agent market. Several areas implemented environmental regulations in 2023 to limit the release of dangerous substances into waterways. Consequently, the companies were forced to implement environmentally friendly procedures and deliming agents with lower environmental impact. It is projected that during the projection period, there will be a continued push toward sustainability. For instance, in October 2022, Arcadis, a leading company stated that it had created a biodegradable cleaning solution that is intended to eliminate the difficult-to-eradicate PFAS layers from fire suppression systems. Fluoro Fighter is a part of the company's broader objective to assist clients and communities in enhancing their environmental sustainability efforts. It is based on a proprietary reagent that Arcadis initially created in 2017.
  • Increased Technological Advancements in Deliming Agents Solutions - The ongoing research and improvement of deliming agents is the third factor. To provide more effective and efficient deliming agents that guarantee high quality while also cutting down on processing time and resource consumption, manufacturers are spending on research and development. The formulation of deliming agents underwent several improvements in 2023, increasing their adaptability and environmental friendliness. As businesses implement these better products during the projection period, these advancements are expected to propel market expansion.
  • Growing Deployment in the Textile Industry - Apart from the leather industry, the deliming agent market is growing because of the textile sector. The textile industry uses deliming agents, especially salt deliming agents, to improve the quality of textile goods by eliminating contaminants. In 2022, the textile sector experienced growth as a result of the rising demand for textiles and apparel. Throughout the projected period, there will likely be a rise in demand for deliming agents due to the textile industry's continued growth. For instance, in 2024, the value added in the textile industry is expected to reach USD 171.10 billion.


  • Fluctuating Price of Raw Materials - The deliming agent market is significantly hampered by the price volatility of raw materials. Price volatility was observed in the market for important raw materials utilized in the production of deliming agents. This had an impact on production costs, which made it difficult for manufacturers and end users to set prices. It is expected that the price volatility of raw materials will continue during the projection period, necessitating the use of cost management methods by manufacturers.
  • Higher Costs of the Product may Impede the Deliming Agent Market Growth
  • Harmful Effects of the Agents may Hinder the Growth of the Market

Deliming Agent Segmentation

Chemical Type (Acid Deliming, Salt Deliming)

Acid deliming segment in the deliming agent market is expected to hold the largest share of 57% during the forecast period. Because acid deliming agents are so good at getting rid of lime and other impurities from hides and skins, the leather industry uses them extensively. Acid deliming agents are anticipated to keep their top spot in terms of growth and revenue, even though salt deliming agents are also significant. The technique of using acidic solutions to clean corrosion-prone items is known as "acid cleaning." Cleaning agents can have an acidic, alkaline, or neutral nature; they are typically water solutions. Scaling and other inorganic deposits are removed with acidic cleaning solutions. These solutions typically contain surfactants, corrosion inhibitors, chelants, and mineral acids as active components. Moreover, damaged batteries can be effectively cleaned with acid cleansers. A battery's ability to power a device is impacted when the outer part of a corroded battery begins to seep out, preventing the battery from making contact.

Type (Low Nitrogen Deliming Agent, Nitrogen-free Deliming Agent)

Low nitrogen deliming agent segment in the deliming agent market is anticipated to hold a share of 54% during the forecast period. Because they effectively delime hides and skins while reducing nitrogen content—a crucial factor for environmental compliance—these chemicals are preferred. Nitrogen-free deliming agents are also important, but because low-nitrogen alternatives are becoming more and more popular, their CAGR is predicted to be significantly lower. Also, growing product launches by various key players propelling the growth of the segment. For instance, enhancing gasoline performance and drivability are two of the main advantages of the new gasoline that CITGO Petroleum Corporation unveiled. This unique gasoline blend, known as TriCLEAN, has more nitrogen cleaning agents to keep essential engine parts clean for a smoother-running engine that reduces emissions and maximizes economy.
