Crystal Growth Modifier Market: Overview and Dynamics
Crystal Growth Modifiers (CGMs) are surface-active agent designed to enhance hydrate particle agglomeration and help to provide more consistent control of the product's size distribution from precipitation. Using addictive’s in modifying the crystal growth is a well-established method in various processes across industries. Crystals are used in semiconductors, manufacturing, optical devices etc. The market is experiencing a higher rate of demand from electronics and manufacturing industry due to its application in various processes.
The primary purpose of crystal growth modifiers is to enhance particle size and is also used to improve the productivity of plant precipitation circuits. The appropriate control of crystal size with the use of crystal growth modifiers allows the plant to manipulate high seed rate, increased liquor concentration and lower fill temperature. The crystal growth modifiers provide improved activity by adding fewer organics in the process. Crystal growth modifiers work by absorbing onto the surface and changing the surface energy of inorganic seed.
Rapid technological innovations in today’s world drive demand in this market. The extensive use of crystal growth modifiers in the pharmaceutical industry providing stability and drug release drive its demand. Most of the drugs undergo crystallization which incorporates precipitation and solid-state transitions adding up to the rising usage of the crystal growth modifiers. The demand generated from the electronics industry also plays a huge role in the growth of the crystal growth modifiers market.
The increase in the electric and electronic products in the developing economies marks the foundation of the crystal growth modifiers market. Amongst the electronic industry, the maximum demand was generated due to the semiconductor manufacturers. The huge investments in the research and development of innovative electronic products lay the base for increment in the crystal growth modifiers market. The absence of crystal growth modifiers in uncontrolled reactions tend to deteriorate the crystal structures ruining the whole batch of reaction chemical.
The rising consumers’ preference towards high living standards and less monetary spending pushes the crystal growth modifiers market forward. The efficiency and need for robust technology in the consumer electronic products raise the issue of fast and speedy products required by consumers. To which, the semiconductor manufacturers solve the problem by inculcating strong and reliable sources of chemicals into their diodes and LEDs.
Crystal Growth Modifiers are also used in producing alumina which is an oxide ceramic material. Alumina has its application in a wide range of products like tap washer, cutting tools, spark plug etc. Alumina is also used in making unbreakable glass which is extensively used in the construction industry. The restraints faced by the big players in this Crystal Growth Modifier Market is the competition by the small scale producers in the market.
Crystal Growth Modifier Market: COVID-19 Impact Insights
COVID-19 pandemic has forced countries to impose lockdowns and strict social distancing measures across the globe, flattening the global economic curve. This in result has disrupted almost every market and crystal growth modifier market has also been affected largely. Restriction in travelling resulted in supply chain disruption which ultimately affected the crystal growth market. Stoppage in manufacturing activities was choking veins of the economy and it also had an adverse impact on the crystal growth modifier market as the demand depends on it.
COVID-19 has caused economic hardship for consumers, businesses and governments across the world. Labour-intensive industries are still at risk as they won’t be able to meet their demand due to risk of workforce getting infected. The global crystal growth modifier market also witnessed a small yet significant slump during Q1 of FY2020. However, the situation soon started recovering as the consumer electronic products and pharmaceutical drugs gained momentum after the lockdown was released.
The crystal growth modifier market will revive once the manufacturing industries resume their operations and continue with the production and supply of consumer products. The crystal growth modifier market is expecting a healthy CAGR growth once the various manufacturing processes resume their operations.
