Reduced Chances of Adulteration and Others Offset Disadvantages of Sulfamic Acid

Sulfamic acid is increasingly replacing hydrochloric acid, owing to its advantages of being less corrosive to metals. However, sulphamic acid is prone to cause fire or explosion hazard if reacted violently with bases, nitric acid or chlorine. As such, high shelf life and reduced chances of adulteration tend to offset its disadvantages. Manufacturers in the sulfamic acid market are investing in partner facilities that are FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certified.

Companies in the U.S. sulfamic acid market are associated with manufacturing sites in Dubai, China, and India. Such production strategies are helping manufacturers to earn the title of multi-national chemical manufacturers. Food grade chemicals are in demand for producing artificial sweeteners.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Since companies in the U.S. are dependent on India, China, and Dubai for manufacturing technical grade sulfamic acid, their multinational trade activities have been affected due to the onset of COVID-19. This is evident since this market in Asia Pacific is expected to generate the highest revenue by 2030 compared to North America and Europe. However, the sulfamic acid market is slated to register a modest CAGR of ~5% during the assessment period, since this acid is prone to be explosive if reacted violently with bases, nitric acid or chlorine. Hence, manufacturers should adopt latest research tools and best in class equipment to develop products that are tailored according to the needs of clients.

Sulfamic Acid Market: Introduction

  • Sulfamic acid is non-hygroscopic and stable. It is soluble in water and formamide, and slightly soluble in concentrated acetone, sulfuric acid, methanol, and ether. It is produced from fuming urea and sulfuric acid, and classified as a strong inorganic acid.
  • Sulfamic acid with diluted aqueous solution is stable for extended periods at room temperature. However, rapid hydrolysis arises at high temperatures. Furthermore, sulfamic acid is considered less corrosive to metals as compared to other strong acids, including hydrochloric acid. Sulfamic acid retains scale solubilizing capacity; therefore, it is considered an ideal choice for the removal of scale from boilers, cooling towers, coils, heat exchangers condensers, and a wide range of heating and cooling systems. This leads to efficiency of the plant and equipment.
  • Sulfamic acid helps remove excessive nitrides used in diazotization reactions in the production of dyes and pigments. It also helps remove nitrides in process water of emissions. Pigment and dye products are primarily employed in various end-use industries such as printing, packaging, consumer, and construction.
  • Pigments are used widely in the formulation of paints, as they add color. Besides adding color, pigments improve esthetic features of paints and coatings and impart a glossy effect to them. Usage of pigments helps impart brightness, heat stability, and light stability to paints.
  • Sulfamic acid permits bleaching at high temperatures, inhibits pulp degradation due to its temperature at chlorination, and lowers pH without losing strength in the paper & pulp industry. It is an ideal choice in paper making primarily due to its less corrosive properties. Paper & pulp products are primarily employed in various end-use industries such as packaging, printing, consumer goods, and construction.
