Hydrofluoroether Market Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts Report

July 24, 2019 by Steve Blade  

According to a recent report by Fact.MR, hydrofluoroether sales are estimated to surpass 6300 tons in 2019, and register a Y-o-Y growth at approximately 12% over 2018. One of the key factors impacting growth of the hydrofluoroether market is stringent government regulations that mandate the replacement of chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons with cleaner alternatives.

The study finds that widespread adoption of the chemical as a solvent in precision cleaning applications is expected to emerge as a vital revenue pocket for the hydrofluoroether industry. Key attributes of hydrofluoroethers, such as non-inflammability, chemical inertness, non-corrosiveness, and low toxicity have been leading their adoption in the cleaning of semiconductors and other electronic components. Additionally, recyclability of hydrofluoroethers using water washing or phase separation processes is making them a desirable compound for cleaning of electric components.

The report on the hydrofluoroether market is a consequence of a robust and elaborate research methodology which was employed during its compilation. A two-step process involving primary and secondary researches was conducted to extract detailed and actionable insights into the hydrofluoroether market. Interviewing experts from the hydrofluoroether market formed the basis of the primary research while secondary research was conducted by thoroughly studying company press releases, trade journals, paid sources, and other publications related to the hydrofluoroether market. Results obtained from both steps of the research were cross-referenced to produce an accurate forecast of the hydrofluoroether market.

Hydrofluoroether Market – Key Insights

  • Constant revisions in Montreal Protocol in addition to the passage of F-Gas Regulations by the European Union in 2014 fuelled the demand for hydrofluoroethers in an assortment of industries. The hydrofluoroether market registered a healthy CAGR of over 10% during the 2013-2018 period.
  • The hydrofluoroether market was estimated at over US$ 293 million in 2018, with Y-o-Y growth in 2019 estimated at 13%.
  • Asia Pacific Excluding Japan is expected to remain the leading market for hydrofluoroether on the back of the burgeoning industrial production across industries such as automobiles, electronics, and lithium-ion battery packs.
  • The APEJ region is expected to emerge as a high-growth market for hydrofluoroether, on account of the healthy gross domestic product rates of the countries in the region which are likely to surpass 5%, according to the International Monetary Fund in the foreseeable future.      

Demand for Hydrofluoroethers in Cleaning Applications to Remain Robust

Companies are increasingly using hydrofluoroethers for cleaning semi-conductors and IC components owing to their chemical inertness, non-corrosiveness, high resistivity, good material compatibility, and low toxicity. The non-inflammability, lower toxicity, and non-irritability to human skin and eyes also make hydrofluoroether easier for workers to handle. Development of automatic precision cleaning machines for semi-conductors is also a vital cause fueling adoption of the compound in various cleaning applications.

With government regulations and international campaigns emphasizing on the complete replacement of hydrochlorofluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons with eco-friendly alternatives, demand for hydrofluoroether in aerosol formulations, electronic coating, heat transfer applications, and in dilution & deposition solvents is expected t0 surge with the compound exhibiting properties similar to CFCs and HCFCs.

Hydrofluoroether Market – Competitive Landscape

  • With the demand for hydrofluoroether in precision cleaning on the rise, 3M, a leading player in the hydrofluoroether market, released a study outlining the potential use of the segregated HFEs for cleaning of electronic packaging. The study concluded that segregated hydrofluoroethers could aid in the effective cleaning of electronic packaging components.
  • Potential use of hydrofluoroether as an electrolyte for the development of high-energy lithium-ion batteries received a huge boost after ADA technologies reported the use hydrofluoroether-based electrolyte in the development of a lithium-ion battery which exhibited high-power density, a wider temperature operability range, high rate capability, and a longer life cycle at room temperature.
  • Intensifying research towards the use of hydrofluoroethers as industrial lubricant received a huge boost after a study conducted by Bournemouth University assessed the tribological performance of the chemical compound in various industrial systems and concluded that it could potentially replace chlorofluorocarbon-based lubricants in the foreseeable future.
  • Hydrofluoroethers can potentially find application in pharmaceutical and diagnostics with a recent study analyzing the potential prospect of using the chemical compound for biomolecule pattering. The study concluded that hydrofluoroether could effectively be used as solvents for the creation of biomolecule patterns as small as 2 nanometers.

Some of the leading players operating in the hydrofluoroether market include Tianhe Chemicals Group Limited, SICONG Chemical, Juhua Group Corporation, China Fluoro Ltd., AGC Inc., and Shandong Huaxia Shenzhou New Material Co., Ltd.
