Moreover, eliminating the use of cadmium and highly toxic mercury in zinc alloy, the demand in the zinc chloride battery is increasing in various industries, thus, creating demand in zinc chloride market.
Additionally, zinc chloride market is witnessing demand from battery manufacturers to be used in electric vehicles, load leveling, and other specialty applications due to its improvement on zinc carbon with 50% greater capacity, leak resistance, high output capacity, offering better low temperature performance, and longer shelf life.
Zinc chloride batteries are being developed on a large scale for use in automotive industry, especially in electric cars. Recently, many tests were conducted by powering vehicles using zinc chloride in electric vehicle battery and results showed that new batteries offer high speed with better energy and longer shelf life.
Moreover, the ability to power vehicles and other electronic appliances leading to zero emission is one of the key factors driving the growth in zinc chloride market and use in the automotive industry.
Currently, lithium-ion battery is finding wide application in the automotive industry, however, in the coming years, the demand in zinc chloride market for use in batteries is likely to grow owing to its low cost and offering weight reduction with more scape in vehicles.
Manufacturers in the zinc chloride market are also focusing on zinc chloride battery production as it is inexpensive to produce. Low energy consumption, and easy to replace.
Owing to the high toxicity, zinc chloride can result in skin irritation and burning eyes after contact. Moreover, zinc chloride can affect gastrointestinal tract and can lead to hematemesis.
The zinc chloride is extremely detrimental to lungs and can lead to lung edema. In last few years, there have been various cases where modest exposure to zinc chloride resulted in pulmonary damage. Immediate symptoms leading to irritation of skin, eyes, and respiratory tract is likely to hamper the growth in zinc chloride market.
The zinc chloride smoke screens are used widely for civilian and military screening purpose. The use of this smoke in confined spaces for screening purpose has been widely abandoned owing to various lethal incidents. However, use of the zinc chloride in open air is considered safe with specific limitations.
In textile industry, zinc chloride is widely used in the resin system to impart durable press to the synthetic and cotton fabrics. Zinc chloride market is witnessing huge demand as fabric refresheners in order to remove unwanted odor in fabrics. In textile industry, around 64% of zinc chloride is dissolved in water and is used to dissolve silk, starch, and cellulose.
Zinc chloride market is witnessing increasing demand for zinc chloride as coagulant for textile dyes and has a capacity to solve dye sludge generation problem. Researchers have developed efficient hybrid technology by combining zinc chloride coagulation and solid state fermentation. The coagulation using zinc chloride have also shown around 99% color removal.
In Asia Pacific, China is likely to emerge as the profitable market for manufacturers in the zinc chloride market owing to the presence of large production base for various manufacturers in zinc chloride market and increasing export to various countries.
