Chelating Agents Market size was valued at USD 7,236.4 million in 2023 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.8% from 2024 - 2030. Chelating agents are a chemical compound that binds tightly to metal ions. It is also known as chelating, chelators, and sequestering agents. Chelating agents are used to remove toxic metals from the body. They are also used in research on cancer. It has various applications in different industries such as pulp and paper, cleaning, water treatment, agrochemicals, chemical processing, etc. It is used in applications such as providing nutritional supplements, chelation therapy to remove toxic metals from the body, contrast agents in MRI scanning, manufacturing using homogeneous catalysts, chemical water treatment, and fertilizers. The demand for cleaning products such as surface cleaners, detergents, and personal care products is driving the global chelating agents market growth. With the increasing demand for portable water, water treatment will accelerate the global chelating agents market trends. Moreover, increasing demand for the cosmetic industry and a growing supply of green chelating agents are influencing the chelating agents market growth. Emerging economies will create exceptional market growth opportunities. Phosphonates are a product that has a wide range of industrial applications in the oil processing market, garment market, and detergents. All these factors will lead to more expansion of the overall market. However, the harmful toxicological effects of many chelating agents will restrain the market growth. The Asia-specific region is dominating the global chelating agents market with value share worldwide and is expected to maintain the trends in the forecasted years. It is due to a growing population and rapid urbanization raising the need for products that require chelating agents.
