Global Trichloroethylene Market Analysis

Growth of the global trichloroethylene market is attributed to increasing demand from developing countries such as China and India. Trichloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent primarily utilized in metal cleaning and vapor degreasing applications. Impressive solvency and high stability have made trichloroethylene an ideal choice in such applications.

Other bundled advantages such as non-flammability and ability to incorporate effective stabilizing systems during vapor degreasing operations are set to aid the expansion of the trichloroethylene market size over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030. Despite its exceptional solvency and cleaning efficiency, trichloroethylene is identified as carcinogenic in nature, which has restricted its demand to some extent in recent years.

Trichloroethylene Market Application Insights

Call to replace hydrochlorofluorocarbon-based refrigerants has fueled the demand for trichloroethylene during the historical period, and the scenario is projected to continue during the forecast period too. Rapid demand from the hydrofluorocarbon refrigerant sector has made it the largest consumer of trichloroethylene. Hydrofluorocarbon refrigerant application is projected to remain the growth epicenter, accounting for over three-fourth the global trichloroethylene market by 2030.

After hydrofluorocarbon production, trichloroethylene is highly utilized in metal cleaning and vapor degreasing applications, but increasing stringent regulations to restrict its exposure limit have affected its consumption. However, increasing demand from niche applications such as chemical processing, coatings, and adhesives are set to assist market growth.

Regional Outlook of Trichloroethylene Market

East Asia is the largest trichloroethylene consumer in the world, and currently accounts for near half of the global consumption and trichloroethylene market share, which is around 151 kilo tons. This scenario is projected to continue due to China, as it’s the largest trichloroethylene consumer in the region and across the globe. China, being the largest hydrofluorocarbon refrigerant and automotive producer, has driven the consumption of trichloroethylene during the historical period.

Developed regions such as Europe and North America have reduced the consumption of trichloroethylene, owing to stringent regulations passed by the European Union and EPA. For instance, in Europe, trichloroethylene is classified as a category 2 carcinogen and has been banned in 2016, due to which, the European market will experience a declining growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Trichloroethylene Market

The coronavirus outbreak has brought the world to its knees, and forced people into lockdowns, which has affected the production and demand for trichloroethylene across the globe. Fear of coronavirus has forced countries to stop any kind of import-export across borders. Sudden industrial shutdowns and restricted transportation has crippled the global economy over the last few months. As per WHO and UN stats, loss caused due to the COVID-19 outbreak may take years to recover.

East Asia is the least affected region by the coronavirus outbreak and is poised to assist global market growth by the end of 2020. But, East Asia exports a huge amount of trichloroethylene to North America and other Asian countries, and halted import-export across borders due to the pandemic crisis may restrict market growth till the situation recovers.

Further, Europe and North America are the two prominent consumers of trichloroethylene, together accounting for significant demand in 2019. Along with leading trichloroethylene consumers, these are the most affected regions by the coronavirus outbreak, and account for nearly half of the global fatalities. The bad situation in these regions has impacted the growth of the global trichloroethylene market, which is poised to recover by the end of the year.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global trichloroethylene market is poised to suffer a likely loss of US$ 25 Mn by the end of 2020”.
