Global Arsenic Market Size (2023 - 2030)

According to our research report, the global arsenic market is estimated to reach a total market valuation of USD 104.47 million by 2030 from USD 55 million in 2022. The market is projected to grow with a CAGR of 8.35% during the period 2023 to 2030.


Industry Overview

As a solid chemical element, arsenic can be found in many hazardous compounds. Inorganic arsenic compounds are low-concentration forms of arsenic that can be found in nature, mostly in oxygen, chlorine, and sulfur compounds. Contrarily, organic arsenic, which is found in plants and animals and is coupled with carbon and hydrogen, is less dangerous than inorganic arsenic. During the anticipated period, the global arsenic market will expand at a high rate. The worldwide arsenic market is anticipated to be driven by factors including rising arsenic use in the glass industry, arsenic acid, and diarsenic trioxide, which are used as fining agents to remove bubbles from the glass met

Glass and ceramics, including display glass, optical glass, and pharmaceutical glass, are made with arsenic. It is used to make wood preservatives, pesticides including fungicides and herbicides, as well as dyes, medications, and fireworks. Arsenic can induce a variety of unpleasant side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle weakness, skin rashes, and so on. However, environmental research indicates that long-term arsenic production has little effect on soil and water. Future market growth of arsenic is anticipated to be hampered by the fact that excessive arsenic exposure can be lethal.

Market Drivers:

Usage of arsenic in wood preservation will increase the consumer demand:

Additionally, wood is prone to fungal and insect assault and will rot in a few years. As a result, arsenic is used to preserve wood because it is toxic to insects, which is anticipated to drive the global arsenic market. The Global Arsenic Market is anticipated to be driven by the usage of arsenic in pesticides like fungicides and herbicides, which are poisonous and toxic substances made to kill pests on plants and crops.

Rising industrial demand for arsenic:

In addition to being utilized in the production of glass, pigments, textiles, paper, metal adhesives, wood preservatives, and ammunition, arsenic is also used in industry as an alloying agent. Additionally, the tanning of hides uses arsenic, and to a lesser amount do insecticides, feed additives, and medications.

Market Restraints:

The impact of arsenic on health will challenge the market growth:

Arsenic in food and drinking water can cause cancer and skin sores when consumed over an extended period. Diabetes and cardiovascular disease have also been linked to it. Exposure during pregnancy and in the early years of life has been associated with impaired cognitive development and an increase in the mortality of young adults.

This research report on the global arsenic market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on, and Geography & region.

Global Arsenic Market- By Application

  • Agricultural Timber & Poles

  • Building & Fencing

  • Utility Poles

  • Highway

  • Others

The agricultural timber and poles, building & fence, utility poles, highways, and other applications make up the global arsenic market. Due to the increasing agricultural operations taking place all over the world, the agricultural timber & poles segment is anticipated to represent a sizeable proportion of the global market. Due to an increase in infrastructure development activities and urbanization, the building & fence segment is anticipated to grow at a robust CAGR over the forecast period.

Global Arsenic Market- By Region

  • North America

  • Europe

  • Asia-Pacific

  • Latin America

  • The Middle East and Africa

With the majority of the consumption taking place in populated nations like China and India, the Asia Pacific area is on the verge of overtaking the rest of the world in both arsenic production and consumption. China is the world's top producer of the arsenic metal, accounting for an estimated 90% of global production. Due to its physio-chemical features, such as chemical resistance, mechanical resistance, and its ability to lower the risk of breakage, arsenic is being used more frequently in the glass industry, which is anticipated to drive the worldwide arsenic market. Arsenic is used to fix mixtures in place to decrease wood leaching because wood is employed in various construction and buildings, offices, furniture, etc., in the region.

Pesticides containing arsenic are frequently employed to inhibit the spread of harmful organisms in the region because of the expanding population and agricultural activities, which are generating demand for the global arsenic industry. Arsenic remedies were administered by doctors because it was thought that they may balance out physiological fluids and be therapeutic. It is also utilized in fireworks, which fuels the global arsenic industry by releasing a tremendous amount of heat through combustion and producing vibrant patterns or forms in the sky. As a result, the Asia Pacific region has become crucial for the development of arsenic due to considerations like these.
