Market Synopsis

Ion Exchange Resins Market has moderate CAGR forecast period 2017-2023
a
Ion exchange resins are the water-insoluble polymer matrix containing functional groups, which can be exchanged by the medium ions. These resins are white or yellowish in color. Resins are present in the matrix structure as porous beads, microporous beads, gel, powder, or sheet forms. Ion exchange resins are made by polymerization of monomers such as styrene, acrylic, or phenolic compounds.  Ion exchange resins find high application scope in different end-use industries such as industrial & municipal water treatment, hydrometallurgy & metal finishing, chemical & petrochemical, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, power industry, electronics, and others.

Ion Exchange Resins Market are categorized into different types based on functional groups present such as cation exchange resins, anion exchange resins, chelating resins, mix bed resins, adsorbent resins, catalysts, and others. Cation exchange resins are sub-segmented into strong acid cation (SAC) and weak acid cation (WAC). Anion exchange resins are sub-segmented into a strong base anion and weak base anion. Strong acid cations generally contain nuclear sulphonic functional group, and weak acid cations contain carboxylic functional group on the resin structure.

Strong base anions contain quarternary ammonium type 1 & type 2 functional group, and weak base anion contains tertiary amine or polyamine functional group on the resin structure. Cation and anion exchange resins beads can be used together (mixed bed configuration) or in separate vessels (twin bed configuration), depending on the application.

Adsorbent resins do not contain any functional group, and whole ion exchange process takes place by adsorption phenomenon by the resins such as a polyacrylic copolymer or polystyrene copolymer. Chelating resins are the special type of ion exchange resins containing functional groups such as fluoride selective, imminodiacetic acid, aminomethyl phosphoric, isothiouronium, methylene thiol, or polyhydroxy amine.

Segments

The global ion exchange resins market is segmented by type, raw material, matrix structure, end-use industry, and region.

On the basis of the type, the global ion exchange resins market is segmented into cation exchange resins, anion exchange resins, chelating resins, mix bed resins, adsorbent resins, and others. Cation exchange resins are sub-segmented into strong acid cation resins and weak acid cation resins. Anion exchange resins are sub-segmented into strong base anion resins and weak base anion resins. Cation exchange resins and anion exchange resins collectively accounted for the largest market share under type category in 2017 owing large-scale applications in end-user industries such as water treatment, hydrometallurgy & metal finishing, chemical & petrochemical, electronics, and others and is expected to continue growing over the forecast period. However, chelating resins and adsorbent resins are expected to grow at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period owing to growing applications in the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

On the basis of the raw material, the global ion exchange resins market is segmented into polystyrene copolymer, polyacrylic copolymer, cross-linked polystyrene, and others. Polystyrene copolymer accounted to have the largest market share under raw material category in 2017 owing to high consumption in different types of ion exchange resins owing to its low cost and easy availability and is expected to continue growing over the forecast period.

On the basis of the matrix structure, the global ion exchange resins market is segmented into porous beads, microporous beads, gel, powder, sheet, and others. Porous beads are expected to be the most commonly used matrix structure in different types of ion exchange resins over the forecast period, 2018-2023 owing  easy handling and is expected to witness strong demand over the forecast period.

On the basis of the end-user industry, the global ion exchange resins market is segmented into water treatment, hydrometallurgy & metal finishing, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and others. Water treatment segment is sub-segmented into industrial water treatment and municipal water treatment. Industrial water treatment is further segmented into chemical & petrochemical, power, electronics, and others. Water treatment industry was the largest consumer of ion exchange resins for its application in both effluent wastewater treatment and municipal water treatment in 2017 and is expected to remain the same over the forecast period.
