Sodium Tripolyphosphate: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2010
Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) is an inorganic sodium salt, which is used as a vital auxiliary in synthetic detergents sector. For several years, sodium tripolyphosphate has been used as a major ingredient in detergents, and played a vital role in enhancing the performance of detergents. However, rising concerns about the environment and development of substitutes are restricting the usage of STPP as an inorganic assistant in detergents, particularly in developed markets. Environmental concerns, specifically eutrophication, have led governments to initiate efforts for reducing the usage of STPP in institutional and consumer cleaning applications. With developed countries such as US and Canada discontinuing STPP-based consumer laundry products, efforts are gaining strength for prohibiting the use of STPP in automatic dishwashing applications for the consumer market.
Asia-Pacific, Europe and Latin America dominate the global sodium tripolyphosphate market with about 70% share of total demand, as stated by the new market research report on sodium tripolyphosphate market. Majority of the STPP-based products are offered in Latin America and Asia-Pacific regions, since the use of phosphates in detergents is highly regulated in North America. The absence of stringent environmental and legislative control mechanisms ensures growth for phosphates and STPP products in developing nations. In addition, low prices and superior performance characteristics are contributing to the sustained demand for phosphate-based assistants in these countries. The market for STPP is expected to benefit from the fact that phosphorus-free assistants are not a complete substitute for phosphorus-based assistants.
Chinese Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP) market is projected to reach 637.5 thousand metric tons by 2013. STPP is expected to witness sustained demand from Chinese customers owing to the relatively stable product pricing. Consumer preference for detergents capable of retaining the softness of the fabric and preventing sediment formation is expected to boost demand for STPP. With the adoption of phosphorus-free washing powders yet to gain widespread acceptance, STPP-based washing powders are likely to remain popular among consumers.
