Moreover, the growing importance of using ion-exchange resins for recycling wastewater and drug manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry is further expected to create opportunities for developing the ion exchange resins market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak widely affected the electrical and electronics, pharmaceuticals, and chemical industries over 2020. The electronics industry has faced a dual impact globally after the pandemic. The logistics slowdown and unavailability of the workforce halted the production facilities of electronic parts across the globe. Apart from this, the global supply chain of major electronic brands was also disrupted globally. Thus, the ion-exchange resins market got impacted by the slowdown of the electronics industry market in the year 2020.

Ion-Exchange Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Type

The cationic resins segment held the largest share in the ion-exchange resins market in 2021 and is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Cationic resins are highly preferred over anionic resins since these resins have a larger exchange capacity. Also, being denser, a smaller volume is needed for cationic resins to obtain equal total exchange capabilities. In addition, cationic resins are cheaper and have a far higher capacity for metals than chelating resins. Moreover, the primary factor driving the demand for cationic resins is their extensive use for water treatment in chemical, domestic, and power industries. Thus, with the growing demand for cationic resins, the ion-exchange resins market is estimated to grow during the forecast period.

Ion-Exchange Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Application

The non-water segment held the largest share in the ion-exchange resins market in 2021 due to the enormous growth in the electronics industry, mainly due to the rise in the semiconductor market and sugar and sweetener production and metal finishing. In the semiconductor industry, the excessive use of ultra-pure water is done, which is obtained by using ion-exchange resins, in the processes such as wafer cleaning, rinsing, surface conditioning, solvent processing, chemical mechanical planarization, and other functions. Furthermore, ion-exchange resins are also widely used for the cane sugar decolorization process under the application of sugar and sweetener production. The demineralization of liquor and the decolorized syrups is treated in ion exchangers to remove the salt and ionic content. Moreover, metal salts, acids, and bases are mainly inorganic compounds ionized in water in the metal finishing industry. The removal is possible through contact with ion exchange resins. Thus, it is estimated that the rising usage of ion-exchange resins in the non-water segment applications will drive the market over the forecast period.

Ion-Exchange Resins Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry

The electronics industry held the largest share in the ion-exchange resins market in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% during 2022-2027. For ultrapure water (UPW) production, ion-exchange polymer and organic polymer are generally used in the electrical & electronics industry. Also, to prevent the low yield of electronic devices, ultra-pure water is needed in the electronics industry to avoid the contamination of products during manufacturing. Acquisition of new technologies and capabilities, innovations, launch of new products and services, and establishment of new companies has boosted the growth of the market of the electronics industry. For instance, according to Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), in 2020, more than 22,800 new semiconductor companies were established in China, which is 195% more than 2019. With the rising demand for more electronic goods, the need for the ion-exchange resins market is further anticipated to rise during the forecast period.

Ion-Exchange Resins Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia-Pacific region dominated the ion-exchange resins market with a share of 42% in the year 2021. This is due to the rise in the demand for potable water and electricity across the region due to environmental concerns. The Asia Pacific region is predicted to continue its dominance in the market during the forecast period due to the increasing requirement for ion-exchange resins in developing countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea. China is expected to continue its dominance in the ion-exchange resins market due to the rising growth of various end-use industries such as power generation, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and others. For instance, according to Semiconductor Industry Association, in 2020, China imported US$ 378 billion in semiconductors; accounted for 30% to 70% of the global TV, mobile phone exports, and PC; assembled 35% of the world’s electronic devices; and has a consumption of all semiconductor-enabled electronics of about one-quarter. The ratio of sales to production remained over 98% due to the expansion of the internal and external markets. India and Taiwan are predicted to grow their ion-exchange resins market during the forecast period, with increased investments in various end-use industries. Ion-exchange resin is used to eliminate chlorine, a radioactive element, and organic compound from the water and for water softening and demineralization, which can be used afterward for different industrial purposes. Thus, the rising usage of ion-exchange resins in various end-use industries will drive market growth in the forecast period.

Ion-Exchange Resins Market Drivers

Rapid Industrialization And Recycling of Wastewater Will Drive The Market Growth

The increase in industrialization in the developing countries increases the demand for ion-exchange resins in various applications, such as making ultra-pure water across various end-use industries such as coal-fired power plants and gas turbine power. Ion exchange resins perform water softening and demineralization processes to meet the requirements for suitable drinking water. Additionally, the growing importance of using ion exchange resins for recycling and reusing wastewater in the power industry will further increase the opportunities for the growth of the ion exchange resins market during the forecast period.

Increasing Demand For Ion-Exchange Resins In The Pharmaceutical Industry

Ion-exchange resins are used in the pharmaceutical industry as inactive pharmaceutical constituents. Taste-masking agents are one of the more ingenious uses of ion-exchange resins. They are extensively used in oral sustained-release products, topical products for local application to the skin, and ophthalmic delivery and nasal delivery. Increasing expansion of ion-exchange resin manufacturing facilities will also drive the growth of the industry.
