Muriatic Acid Market: An Overview

Muriatic acid is essentially the technical grade of hydrochloric acid (HCl), which is pale yellow in color. It is produced by the dilution of hydrochloric acid gas usually below 40 wt. % of hydrochloric acid. The contaminants added to produce muriatic acid can be customized as per the requirement in specific applications. Muriatic acid can be found in various consumer products such as cleaners, and is also manufactured for application in the food processing industry. It is regarded as a corrosive liquid by OSHA and is classified under FDA (172.892), ASTM (E 1146-97), and various other standards. Most of the muriatic acid produced is consumed locally, with very few quantities of muriatic acid available for global trade.

Muriatic Acid Market: Dynamics

Muriatic acid is prominently used in the manufacturing of organic chemicals. It is also widely used in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic. The demand for PVC is increasing, which in turn, surges the demand for muriatic acid from PVC manufacturers. The increasing production of various organic chemicals is also expected to increase the demand for muriatic acid. It is used in water & wastewater treatment applications as well as in the form of pH stabilizer in the production of various inorganic water treatment compounds such as polyaluminium chloride (PAC), iron chloride, and others. Various pharmaceutical intermediates are produced using muriatic acid as a precursor. Other applications of muriatic acid include household cleaners, leather processing, building constructions, and others. The use of muriatic acid in oil-field acidizing is also major. It is used to dissolve the portion of oil rock by injecting muriatic acid and creating large pore structure for oil formation. This process is used by petroleum manufacturers especially by the North sea oil production industry. Steel pickling is another major application area of muriatic acid. It is the process of removing rust from the surface of iron or steel before subsequent processing such as galvanizing, extrusion rolling, and other techniques. Generally, 18 wt.% of HCl muriatic acid is used for this application.

The slow-down in the construction sector and developments of chlorine free alternatives for the production of chemicals are some of the restraints for the growth of global muriatic acid market.  However, these factors hamper the growth only to a small extent. The global muriatic acid market is driven by the increasing production of organic & inorganic chemicals that are used in various applications.
