Global Sodium Borohydride Market to Reach $2 Billion by 2026
- Sodium borohydride also referred to as sodium tetrahydridoborate or sodium tetrahydroborate, is an inorganic compound. Available as a white powder, it performs as a reducing agent and finds use in laboratory and industry. Growth in the global market is driven by increasing application in pulp and paper industry, and increasing R&D activities associated with pharma and use of sodium borohydride as a hydrogen carrier in fuel cell. Sodium borohydride is employed widely in the pharmaceutical sector for the manufacturing of antibiotics and various compounds. In this industry, it is used as an effective and safe reduction technology for the manufacture of various APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). In the pulp and paper sector, sodium borohydride is used in the production of reductive bleach to improve newsprint and magazine grade paper. The adoption of sodium borohydride in the industry is expected to be significant, owing to the increasing use of paper for packing applications. Further, widespread use as a bleaching agent in the textiles and wood pulp market is likely to foster demand in the coming years. Sodium borohydride is also employed for hydrogen storage, owing to increased hydrogen density, air stability, and reduced cost. With the growing focus on clean energy globally, several countries are considering the use of hydrogen. The growing trend towards materials recycling and rising focus on renewable energy applications are also fueling gains in the market. Further, the increasing investments in R&D related to clean energy generation and conversion techniques is expected to stimulate market growth, as sodium borohydride is used for increasing alternative energy fuel cells` efficiency.
- Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Sodium Borohydride estimated at US$1.5 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$2 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% over the analysis period. Pharmaceuticals, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 6.5% CAGR to reach US$582.2 Million by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Pulp & Paper segment is readjusted to a revised 5.7% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 33.6% share of the global Sodium Borohydride market. Sodium borohydride is employed widely as a reducing agent in the manufacture of various antibiotics including chloramphenicol, dihydrostreptomycin, and thiophenicol. It is employed as a precursor for producing other metal borohydrides. In pulp and paper industry, sodium borohydride is utilized mainly in the manufacture of reductive bleach to brighten newsprint- and magazine-grade paper.
