The Global Chloroacetyl Chloride Market size is estimated to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2021 to 2028. The increasing demand for herbicides and the rise in chemical production are some of the factors driving this market growth. However, stringent regulations on the use of chloroacetyl chloride as an active pharmaceutical ingredient may restrain its growth over the forecast period.
Chloroacetyl Chloride is a highly reactive, flammable chemical that has been used in the chlorination of acetyl chloride as well as for oxidation reactions. Chloroacetyl chlorides are often substituted with other chlorine-containing compounds due to their reactivity and toxic nature. However, it found use as an herbicide in some countries.
The global chloroacetyl chloride market is driven by the growth of herbicides and other applications. The rise in demand for chemical production, as well as others, is also contributing to it. Chlorination of acetyl chloride is a major application that contributed to the largest share in 2017, followed by oxidation reactions with dichlorovinyl-pyridine (DVP) derivatives such as VPDs & DMCFs. However, its usage has been declining due to environmental concerns about toxicity and reactivity.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Chlorination of Acetyl Chloride, Oxidation of 1, 1-Dichloroethylene, and others. The latter includes other uses of chloroacetyl compounds in diverse applications like the production of API, chemical intermediates, dyes, and pigments.
Chlorination of acetyl chloride is a chemical process in which the chlorinating agent reacts with Acetyl chloride to form an organochlorine compound, usually identified as trichloroethylene. This reaction involves the addition of Cl- ions into the molecule (-Cl) and leads to the formation of Chlorine of Acetyl Chloride (CAC), also known as chlorine acetate; Dichloctyelene (DC); Dichlorethane (HCFC-152a).
The reaction of acetyl chloride with chlorine is exothermic, and it has a relatively high rate constant for the second step. Thus the process proceeds to completion in less than one minute at room temperature. The product (CAC) is used as an agricultural insecticide; however, its use was discontinued when organochlorine-based pesticides were banned by U.S.-EU regulatory bodies after they had been found to be persistent organic pollutants that bioaccumulate.
Oxidation of ethylene is the process that involves the removal of hydrogen molecules from a molecule. This may be achieved through different means, such as by photolysis or heat. Ethylene reacts with oxygen in nature to produce ethanol and water vapour ethene + O₂ → CO₃+H²O
One of the major uses of oxidation is in its role as a bleaching agent. The goal of this process is to remove the color from substances, and it can be done through various mechanisms such as chlorine or peroxide.
The term ’dichloroethylene' is the chemical compound with the formula CCl=CH. This colorless liquid has a sweet odor and is produced primarily as an intermediate in the industrial production of ethylene dichloride, which itself can be used to produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) for PVC plastics or other chlorinated hydrocarbons such as tetrachloroethene. It finds niche applications in some solvents, degreasers, and paint removers but its use is declining due to environmental concerns around disposal and emission into the air from factories that manufacture VCM.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented, the market is segmented into Herbicides, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, and Chemical Production. The Herbicides segment accounted for the largest market share, in terms of volume. this is mainly due to its wide application across various agricultural crops such as corn, soybean, cotton, and wheat. Moreover, chloroacetyl chloride also finds applications in herbicides that are specially formulated with insecticides or fungicide ingredients.
There is an increased demand for herbicides that are effective against weeds and also have a long residual effect. This has resulted in chloroacetyl chloride being increasingly used as one of the key ingredients for making these pesticides. Moreover, it finds extensive application across various agricultural crops such as corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, etc., which contributes to its high demand among farmers.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The region with the most demand for chloroacetyl chloride is North America which accounted for nearly 40% of the total volume in 2018. The key countries that would be driving this growth are Canada and Mexico which together account for more than 75% of the production in North America. The major producers are largely concentrated within these two regions – namely China (37%), Germany (23%) followed by Japan (21%). Henceforth, a significant portion of revenue share will also come out of these markets as well as other developing economies.
