Metal Cleaning Chemicals Market to Progress at Steady Pace; Impact of COVID-19 to Remain Mixed
Published : 01 Dec 2020 Industry: Chemical & Materials
According to a report published by Fact.MR, the global metal cleaning chemicals market is growing at a moderate pace, and is anticipated to record a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2030. One of the crucial drivers influencing the growth of the metal cleaning chemicals market is the rise in demand for aqueous metal cleaners from end-use industries requiring maintenance for their machinery. On the other side, several studies have shed light on the VOC contents of these metal cleaning chemicals that lead to the production of smog. Smog is found to have ill-effects on the bodies of animals and human beings. Given this influence, governments of numerous countries, especially developed ones, have imposed bans or imposed limitations on the production of metal cleaning chemicals.
Opportunities await for the metal cleaning chemicals market in the form of green and clean alternatives. Manufacturers have been considering the gravity of these impositions, and are striving to develop bio-based alternatives that are friendly to human beings and the environment. As a result, the metal cleaning chemicals market could witness an uptick in sales during the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.
