Rising demand for water treatment in industrial applications is projected to drive the sodium hypophosphite market in Asia Pacific.

The growing industrialization has increased the amount of waste discharged in water bodies. Additionally, unregulated discharge of industrial and domestic contaminants into water bodies causes health problems in human beings and the destruction of aquatic life, thereby necessitating the use of water treatment chemicals. The polluted water further affects the use of water for drinking, recreation, household needs, transportation, and commerce.

Metals are one of the most common pollutants in wastewater. Humans can be exposed to these metals, which can cause health issues such as dysfunction of the kidney, liver, reproduction system, and central nervous system. Thus, the discharge of such wastewater needs to be controlled and monitored. Sodium hypophosphite is an effective reducing agent for the recovery of Ni, Cu, and Fe as per the study, ‘The removal of Ni, Cu & Fe from a Mixed Metal System using Sodium Hypophosphite as a Reducing Agent’ by Promise Sethembiso Ngema, Freeman Ntuli, and Mohamed Belaid. Thus, sodium hypophosphite holds high-growth prospects in the coming years in water treatment applications.
