Market Overview and Dynamics: Global Paraformaldehyde Market

The global paraformaldehyde market is expected to grow at a moderate growth rate of around 5.3% during the forecast period 2022-2028. The major factors driving the growth of the global paraformaldehyde market are industrialization and urbanization, government regulations, production of resins, rapid demand for agrochemicals, and synthesis of paints and topcoats. However, the paraformaldehyde market expansion is likely to be hampered by the harmful consequences of paraformaldehyde, such as cancer and nasal and ocular irritation, transportation of paraformaldehyde, and the availability of cheaper substitutes (like dialdehyde glyoxal) over the forecast period.

Market Drivers and Trends of the Global Paraformaldehyde Market

The growth of the paraformaldehyde market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for resins and plastics in various industries, such as automotive, construction, and packaging. The growing demand for paraformaldehyde in the production of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals is also expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Moreover, the increasing demand for agrochemicals, particularly fertilizers, is also driving the market growth. Paraformaldehyde is used in the production of herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides, and its demand is expected to increase with the growing need for high-yield crop production.

The pharmaceutical industry is also a significant driver of the paraformaldehyde market growth. Paraformaldehyde is used in the production of various pharmaceutical intermediates, such as vitamin B1, and is also used in the synthesis of several active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Regional Overview of the Global Paraformaldehyde Market

The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the paraformaldehyde market due to increasing investment and technological advancements in the agriculture, construction, and automotive sector. China is the leading export country of resin followed by Germany.

In North America, Brazil is dominating the paraformaldehyde market owing to its large industrial base and growth in the agriculture sector. Brazil was the main importer of agricultural pesticides in 2019 followed by France and Germany. Due to the increased manufacturing of laminates, pentaerythritol, MDI, and wood panels, the paraformaldehyde market in the Middle East and Africa is expected to grow significantly.

Segmental Analysis: Global Paraformaldehyde Market

·         On the basis of end users, the agriculture segment is gaining significant growth as paraformaldehyde is primarily used as a soil fumigant and preservative.
