How is Urbanization Driving Nickel Acetate Demand?

Over the past decade, there has been a rise in the number of people moving into cities for better opportunities and growth. According to a United Nations report, around 68% of the world population is projected to live in urban areas, an increase of around 13% from 2018.

Owing to this sizeable increase, demand for consumer electronics and coated houseware is projected to increase multi-fold over the next ten years. Additionally, nickel acetate is extensively used as a surface coating material in electronics and houseware products. This is mainly attributed to the advantages of electroplating such as enhancing metal appearance, acting as a protective barrier, heat resistance, and preventing tarnishing of metals. Use of nickel acetate in coinage also found to be a factor driving sales.

Moreover, increased consumer spending coupled with rising housing activities are some of the complementary outcomes of urbanization, which is projected to drive the market for nickel acetate.

Sales of food grade nickel acetate is also poised to witness an upward curve. Owing to these factors, rapid urbanization is expected to bolster demand for nickel acetate over the decade.

What is the Market Dynamics of Nickel Acetate with the Adoption of Natural Fabric Mordants?

Natural fabric mordants have various environmental benefits such as no health hazards, low effluent generation, easy extraction & purification, and high sustainability standards. Whereas, chemical fabric mordants such as nickel acetate are highly toxic and allergic, which has compelled the textile industry to re-think about alternatives.

Additionally, stringent regulations by countries on the use of chemical mordants are projected to lower demand for nickel acetate over the coming years.

Further, sizeable increase in the number of eco-conscious consumers along with rising trend of eco-label products are propelling demand for natural dyes, and are projected to provide consistent rise in demand over the forecast period.

These mentioned latest trends related to nickel acetate are projected to constantly lower demand, thus posing a potent threat to the chemical over the next ten years.
