Growing Applications of Chemical Additives in Paper Industry to Drive CHPTAC Market Growth
Chemical pulps are considered superior to chemi-mechanical or mechanical pulps in the manufacturing of high-quality paper, a key factor bolstering the adoption of 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chloride (CHPTAC) in the paper and pulp industry. The effectiveness of cationized natural polymers in improving the properties and quality of paper is influencing adoption of CHPTAC in cationizing chemi-mechanical pulps during the manufacturing of high-quality paper.
Read Report Overview:
CHPTAC manufacturers are capitalizing on the rising demand for retention agents, especially organic compounds and cationic substances including polyamines, in various papermaking processes. As CHPTAC provides promising solutions to the evolving needs for high-quality paper, the CHPTAC market is expected to benefit from the incremental growth of the paper and pulp industry in the upcoming years.
Hazardous Effects of Excessive Exposure to CHPTAC on Human Health Impeding Sales
Though CHPTAC is a non-combustible chemical, it releases flammable and toxic vapors on heating. The dermal and inhalation exposure to CHPTAC during its production, end-uses, and loading operations can have a negative impact on human health. In addition, albeit minor, there is a possibility of consumer exposure to CHPTAC through residues present in end-user products, such as cosmetics, newsprint, copy paper, and food contact materials, which are manufactured using cationic starch or proteins. Growing awareness about the potential risks associated with dermal and inhalation exposure to CHPTAC may hamper its applications, in turn, impacting growth of the CHPTAC market. Adoption can also be hampered by regulations concerning limited use of CHPTAC in manufacturing a range of products.
Effectiveness of CHPTAC in Domestic Wastewater (DWW) Treatment: An Opportunity
Increasing adoption of eco-friendly waste management treatments and incorporation of wastewater treatment processes is on the rise across various countries. Distilleries are focusing on finding effective methods for offering efficient wastewater treatment services.
CHPTAC is one of the popular absorbents used in wastewater treatment processes, as it has proven to be efficient in decolorizing distillery spent wash. Manufacturers in the CHPTAC market are likely to focus their efforts on promoting the effectiveness of using chemically modified bagasse in wastewater treatment, which is expected to boost demand for CHPTAC in the upcoming years.

Negative Environmental Impacts of CPHTAC May Restrict its Adoption in Industrial Applications
Despite the burgeoning use of CPHTAC in wastewater treatment services, various governmental organizations have declared it as a harmful chemical for the environment. For example, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), CPHTAC is hazardous for aquatic organisms and can have a long-term impact on the aquatic environment. Various governmental organizations and regulatory bodies have advised refraining the use of CHPTAC in a way that releases the chemical in the environment. This may hamper the demand for CHPTAC in various industrial applications, thereby, impeding growth in the future.
