Ion exchange resins are polymeric materials that work as mediums to transfer ions. These materials are characterized by properties such as cross linked structures, insolubility in water, and are also non-reactive to chemicals. Ion exchange resins are usually white or yellow and form structures in polymer micro-beads that comprise a large number of miniscule cavities or pores.
The process of exchanging ions is carried out by modifying the polymer base of the resin with the aim of exchanging the constituents of the surrounding solutions. Consequently, these materials find extensive use in treating water or waste water depending on the end use application. Ion exchange resins also find use in chemical industries and sludge treatment plants.
The wide ranging applications of ion exchange resins in verticals such as water treatment, mining, and power generation is a major factor that is currently driving the growth of the global ion exchange resins market. Other influencers that have the potential to impact market activity includes:
- Cat Ions are expected to hold control over major market share in the Middle East and Africa Market, followed closely in terms of growth rates owing to the extensive use of water treatment waste water treatment and power generation activities in the region, all of which are expected to rise with a robust rate of growth for the foreseeable future.
- The rising threat of water scarcity across the globe, especially in desert like regions such as those in the Middle East and Africa regions are generating strong demand for reuse and recycling of freshwater sources. This trend is expected to have a major impact on the developments of the global ion exchange resins market in the near future.
Ion exchange resins are being used increasingly in the biofuel production industry, with the aim of substituting conventional conversion materials such as sodium methylate. This replacement improves the results of biofuel conversions to be more economically beneficial, while also assisting end use industries in achieving better eco-friendly standards in their day to day activities.
