Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) Market Segment Analysis - By Type

The Powder type held the largest share in the Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) Market in 2020. The Powder is a white crystalline form and is also freely soluble in water, gram/100ml at 25 degrees Celsius. The sodium tripolyphosphate with a very high rate of hydration is preferred to be used in modern equipment because of a shorter period of reaction with water, which is required in the powerful high-speed mixtures. In case of a medium or low rate of hydration, it is used to avoid the formation of lumps in the detergent slurry. This increase in demand for household and industrial cleaning in the developing region is coupled with the growing population and new industries that are driving the growth of sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP).

Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) Market Segment Analysis - By Grade

The Food Grade held the largest share in the Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) Market in the year 2020. Food Grades are used to protect the food from the ailments such as corrosion, rust, and friction. The food-grade is important for the eradication of contamination of the food. These grades help to serve better the packaging and food transportation industries. For example, a guideline from Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that in the case of oranges sodium triphosphate must not be more than 0.05%, if specifications are not followed then under Citrus Red No. 2, it can lead to the elimination of the units. These grades help in maintaining the quality and standard of the food provided. This increase in the level of standard for food has led to the growth of the food packaging industry and hence the sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) market.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) Market Segment Analysis - By Application
