Report Code: CMR 1524 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Ferric Chloride Market Overview:

The Ferric Chloride Market is anticipated to attain a market value of $8.22 billion by the year 2030, exhibiting a steady compound annual growth rate CAGR of 5% during the forecast period spanning from 2023 to 2030.

The Ferric Chloride market refers to the global industry involved in the production, distribution, and consumption of ferric chloride, a chemical compound with the formula FeCl3. Ferric chloride is widely used in various applications due to its versatile properties and functions.

One of the primary applications of ferric chloride is in water treatment. It is commonly used as a coagulant to remove impurities and contaminants from water, such as heavy metals and suspended solids. Ferric chloride helps in the purification of drinking water, wastewater treatment, and industrial processes that require clean water.

Additionally, ferric chloride finds applications in the electronics industry. It is used as an etchant in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. Ferric chloride selectively removes the unwanted copper from the PCB, leaving behind the desired circuitry pattern. It is also utilized in the production of electronic components, such as semiconductors and integrated circuits.
