Key Factors Shaping Potassium Formate Market
Growing Demand for Safety, Agility, and Efficacy to Develop Potassium Formate as Durable Agent
End-users of the drilling industry are under constant pressure to reduce operational costs, maintain quality and increase productivity. This pressure reaches up to the value chain wherein manufacturers of drilling fluids are constantly engaged in R&D to accommodate consumer demand. Among the divergent needs, safety, agility, and efficacy of the drilling fluids are the prominent requirements generated from the end-users’ end. Among the changes that are actively integrated into the drilling process, development of smooth fluids and incorporation of high chemical strength are trending.
Demand for the former feature entails from the end-user sentiment for hazardous outcomes due to snowfall and that of latter from the ongoing applications for deicing on airports. Application-specific developments are also being incorporated. For instance, the development of potassium formate brine solutions for removing snow from aircraft surface, wherein delicate yet flexible handling of a wide range of temperature as compared to its alternatives present in the market.
Profitability in Procuring Raw Material Presents Big Gains for Potassium Formate Manufacturers
Formic acid has been witnessing a remarkable growth on account of the growing demand for preservatives and feed additives. Improving living standards internationally has resulted in the increasing consumption of meat, thereby boosting the demand for formic acid in animal feeds and silage preservatives. The high-quality nature of formic acid coupled with the global environmental acceptability is one of the major influencing factors creating an upsurge in demand in the industry. The rise in the production of formic acid is also anticipated to be one of the key influencing elements for the growth of potassium formate with an increased emphasis.
Lucrative Applications in Drilling Fluids Point to Positive Prospects
The demand for drilling fluids is estimated to grow at a significant rate. These drilling fluids segment is projected to create an incremental opportunity of more than 192 Mn by 2029 end. While the demand for potassium formate for drilling fluid applications held a third of revenue shares in 2018, the application for de-icing has been growing at a relatively lower rate. Gradual growth in the de-icing application area has been attributed to infringement from other applications, as its usage falls under weather conditions pertaining to the amount of winter snowfall.
Key Challenges Facing Manufacturers of Potassium Formate
- The consumption volume of potassium formate remains highly influenced by seasonal fluctuations, including low winter snowfall.
- Widespread availability of competitively priced alternatives of potassium formate will continue to limit sales to a certain extent.
- Volatility of the prices of raw materials utilized in the manufacturing of potassium formate is another strong factor restraining the manufacturers participating in the potassium formate market. While stakeholders in market are facing upward pricing pressure as a result of the tightening supply scenario, a significant dip in the consumption of formic acid that has been observed in the past couple of years will also remain a significant factor posing a negative impact on market growth.
- The report identifies growing stringency of environmental scrutiny over the potassium formate and formic acid industries, particularly in China. The market has thus witnesses the exit of some of the active players from global marketplace. However, tightening regulations and inspections on the production of formic acid, potassium formate, and other similar chemicals in the series, will be an indispensable benefit for the market in terms of long-term growth.
