COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 had impacted the nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & fluorine gas (F2) market. This is because there was an initial slowdown in the energy and power segment during the covid period. According to a report by International Atomic Energy Agency, Electricity production from nuclear reactors decreased by around 4% which accounted for Major reductions in European Union by 11%, then Japan by 33%, and then the United States by 2%. Additionally, there was an initial slowdown in solar energy production as well. For instance, according to a report by Solar Energy Industries Association, US solar industry declined by around 37% from 2019. This impacted the demand nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & fluorine gas (F2) because of the use of NF3 and F2 in solar photovoltaic cells manufacturing and uranium enrichment processes in nuclear power plants respectively. Thus, covid had a negative impact on the nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & fluorine gas (F2) market.

Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & Fluorine Gas (F2) Market Segment Analysis – By End Use

IndustryEnergy & Power industry is the fastest-growing segment in the Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & Fluorine Gas (F2) Market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.6%. This is because of the use of NF3 and F2 in solar and nuclear energy generation respectively. For instance, NF3 has been used extensively in the photovoltaic solar cell production for texturing the thin films, and the reactor cleaning of the film silicon deposition. According to International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme, the global Photovoltaic market saw an increase of around 14% in 2020 as compared to 2019. Thus, the growth of photovoltaic solar cells will increase the demand for Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). F2 on the other hand is used in the uranium enrichment process in nuclear reactors. This is because the element fluorine contains only one naturally occurring isoptope and thus benefit in separating U235 from U238, and the nuclear fuel requires a higher concentration of U235 isotope. Additionally, UF6 exist in gaseous form in operating temperatures. According to International Energy Agency Report, Nuclear power energy increases by 2% in 2021 from 2020. This means there will be more requirement for uranium enrichment in the forecast period and thus, the demand for F2 will increase. Thus, the increase in demand for nuclear and solar energy will increase the demand for Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) & Fluorine gas (F2) Market.
