Chelating agents, also called chelants, sequestering agents, or complexing agents, form stable complexes after mixing with metal ions. These compounds achieve this by synchronizing with the metal ions of at least two sites, inactivating and solubilizing the metal ions that would otherwise damage the system on which they have been used. Chelating agents are primarily used for the following purposes:

  • To eliminate metal ions that might affect the effectiveness of the process
  • To evade metal precipitation and ensure a vital amount for the good operation of the procedure

The global market for chelating agents is growing due to the growth of the chemicals industry. Rapid industrialization has escalated the market for chelants in various end-user industries. Multiple development opportunities emerging from agrochemicals, textiles, household and industrial cleaners, paper and pulp, textiles, personal care, water treatment, and others are the major factors driving the growth of the overall market.

The analysts forecast global chelating agent market to grow at a CAGR of 4.27% during the period 2016-2020.
