Worldwide Chelating Agent Market Grow at a CAGR of 3.6% to Reach $4,586 Million by 2019 adds “Chelating Agent Market by Type (Aminopolycarboxylate, Phosphate & Phosphonate, Biodegradable), Application (Cleaner, Water Treatment, Pulp & Paper, Agrochemical, Personal care, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage), & Geography - Global Trend & Forecast to 2019 " global research report to its store.

Chelating agents are of utmost importance in water treatment and cleaners & detergents industries. They bind and remove metal ions while at the same time play other significant roles in the process. Textiles and pulp & paper industries require chelants as bleaching agents. The growth of these industries drive the market for chelating agents, making them a very important functional ingredient in their manufacturing process. The rising demand of industrial chemicals in various industries has accelerated the growth of chelating agents. Chelating agents form a stable covalent bond with unstable metal ions. Unstable metal ions pose a threat to canned food and beverage products. Chelating agents, thus, prevents them from reacting with the products thereby maintaining its quality.
