Key Market Trends

Detergent Segment to Dominate the Market Demand

  • The detergent market segment stands to be the largest consumer for zeolite molecular sieves. With the increasing awareness among the consumers about the use of environment-friendly detergents, the demand for zeolite molecular sieves from the detergent industry has increased.
  • Conventionally, sodium tripolyphosphate (STTP) were used in the production of detergents. However, water pollution, due to the accelerated growth of unwanted water flora in the sewers, became a concern related to the use of STTP.
  • Owing to this, zeolite molecular sieves has been replacing the use of STTP in detergents, which has been driving the demand for the detergent application.
  • With the growing population, rising disposable income, increasing hygiene concerns, and increasing demand for industrial detergents, the detergent industry has been witnessing noticeable growth.
  • Hence, in order to cater to the increasing demand, the detergent industry demand for zeolite molecular sieves is expected to increase in the coming years.
