Sodium Hypophosphite Introduction:
Sodium Hypophosphite, molecular formula: NaH2PO2·H2O, is white crystalline inorganic compound that can absorb moisture and is deliquescent in nature. Sodium Hypophosphite is hydroscopic in nature and soluble in water as well as in an organic solvents. Industrially, Sodium Hypophosphite are used as reducing agents owing to which it prevalently used in the electroplating application. During the nickel electroplating, reducing agents i.e. sodium hypophosphite forms chelate compound with nickel and help to control the pH level that in turn resulted to improve surface properties and enhance the smoothness the finished products. The electroplating of metal surface help to improve its properties such as corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, strength, and hardness, among others. Owing to which, demand for electroplated metal products is increasing in fabrication of machineries, automotive component, aviation component, and marine part, among other application. Along with this, increasing use of Sodium Hypophosphite as reducing agent in electroplating of non-metallic materials such as plastics, glass, ceramics, and quartz, among other, provides impetus for the growth of market. Over the recent past, with the development of electroplating application, the market demand for electroplating application is increasing in several industries such as automotive, aerospace, plastics and ceramics, among other industry that in turn boost the demand for sodium hypophosphite market
Moreover, Sodium Hypophosphite also finds application in chemical and polymer industry, for instance, as catalyst in polymerization reaction and as chemical intermediate in production of Hypophosphorous Acid, diazo derivatives and other organic compounds. Also, Sodium Hypophosphite are used in water treatment, production of several industrial additives and oilfield scale inhibitors, among other application. Thus, with significant growth of chemical and polymer & plastic industry across the globe that in turn drive the Sodium Hypophosphite market.

Sodium Hypophosphite: Regional Outlook
In terms of production and consumption, the global Sodium Hypophosphite market is mainly dominated by the Asia Pacific region. Growing interest of foreign investors in developing countries such as China, India, and Indonesia is one the major factors responsible for considerable penetration of Sodium Hypophosphite in the Asia Pacific market. The growth of polymer, plastics, and chemicals industry are prompt in the APAC region that has translated into rising demand for Sodium Hypophosphite. Moreover, growing automotive, and aviation industry coupled with increasing demand for metal coated products from this industry in APAC region is expected to result in a significant rise in demand for sodium hypophosphite over the forecast period. North America is expected to hold the second spot in terms of consumption owing to increasing demand for a synthesis of several chemicals, polymer compound, diazo- derivative, and fire retardants, among other chemicals, that in turn expected to drive the demand for Sodium Hypophosphite market over the forecast period. North America Sodium Hypophosphite market is expected to register substantial growth over the forecast market. Europe stands as the third largest Sodium Hypophosphite market due to high demand for electroplating applications. However, stringent government regulations over the manufacturing industry will hamper the demand for Sodium Hypophosphite within the Europe region. The Middle East and Latin America Sodium Hypophosphite market will experience steady demand and is expected to register steady growth over the forecast period.
