Global Sulphonated Naphthalene Formaldehyde (SNF) Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde (SNF) market is estimated to grow at a robust CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing application of sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde in the construction sector as a concrete additive. SNF is a powerful water reducing agent, used for concrete and cement grouts. Addition of sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde in concrete is known to improve tolerance in the formulation, which is estimated to boost the demand for SNF in the construction sector. Moreover, the increasing construction activities, backed by growing population and urbanization, is projected to boost the market growth. Currently, more than half of the global population is living in urban settlements. As per the data by the World Bank, 56.156% of the global population lived in urban areas in 2020. Furthermore, SNF also acts as super plasticizers, meaning, they can help produce concrete with approximately 15% less water content, which is estimated to further surge their demand in the construction sector. In addition to this, the growing demand for SNF in the textile industry as a dispersing agent for dyes, is also projected to boost the market growth.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
