Increasing demand from the ceramic tile industry for boric acid, which is an oxidized product derived from boron, will push the demand for boron compounds. Furthermore, rising application of boric acid in fiberglass is also anticipated to fuel demand from the global boron compounds market, states the report. While growth prospects for the market may seem rather positive, abundant availability of close substitutes is a major threat that might hinder its progress in the long run. The limited availability of boron ore, concentrated only in a few regions around the world, also makes it difficult for companies in the industry to ensure smooth operation. With an aim to present an executive-level snapshot of the market, the report studies in great detail every factor that is likely to have an impact on the growth trajectory of the global boron compounds market.
