Hexachloroethane Market: Introduction
Hexachloroethane is a chlorinated alkali chemical compound that exists at room temperature as a colorless, crystalline, toxic, solid chlorinated hydrocarbon with a camphor-like odor. Hexachloroethane is a byproduct of many industrial chlorination processes. Hexachloroethane is a member of the class of chloromethane in which all hydrogens are replaced by the chloro groups. Hexachloroethane is emitting irritating and toxic fumes when it is heated for decomposition. Practically, it is insoluble in water, and soluble in ethanol, diethyl ether, and benzene among other chemical compounds. Hexachloroethane is stable under the normal or room temperature and pressure thereby, it is considered as inflammable. Hexachloroethane is widely used for the production of tablets or pallets, which is used by both primary and secondary aluminium smelters (foundries and extraction units) for refining and degassing the hydrogen gas bubbles from molten aluminium and its alloys.
Moreover, hexachloroethane is also used as a key component in the pyrotechnic mixture that is consumed in the production of smoke grenades and smoke screens, which is widely used by the military for the smoke-producing devices. Additionally, hexachloroethane has been used as an anthelmintic (to destroy tapeworms) in veterinary medicines. These medicines are feed orally to the cattle and sheep etc. for treatments of liver diseases in the veterinary animals. It is also used as rubber accelerator, which is a component in the fungicides and insecticides as well as a plasticizer and moth repellant for cellulose esters. Moreover, some other applications of the hexachloroethane are; it has been used as chain transfer agents in the emulsion polymerization of the propylene-tetrafluoroethylene copolymer, and as a polymer additive.
Hexachloroethane Market: Dynamics
Globally, the consumption of chlorinated alkali hydrocarbon that is hexachloroethane is predominantly driven by the growth of its application in the numerous end-use industries and sectors such as defense, metallurgy, and veterinary among many others. In defense, it is widely used for signal flare or smoke-producing devices. And, several countries across the globe are investing a huge amount to reinforcing the defense sector, and such factor is expected to accelerate the demand of hexachloroethane in the global market during the forecast period. Moreover, the numerous application of the hexachloroethane that is, it is used as raw material for organic synthesis, and degassing agents for aluminum and its alloys. Rising consumption of the aluminium in the automotive, electrical and electronics, and aeronautical industries in the form of its alloys, owing to its properties such as light-weight, durability, and cost-effective. Such factors are also projected to drive the hexachloroethane market growth across the globe in the upcoming years.
However, the hazardous effect of the hexachloroethane such as it is having a carcinogenic agent that is accountable for cancer in the human body. And, stringent government regulations in the production of hexachloroethane is anticipated to hinder the growth of hexachloroethane market during the forecast
