Global Metal Scavenging Agents Market: Key Highlights

  • In terms of value, the global metal scavenging agents marketis anticipated to expand at a CAGR of ~4% from 2019 to
  • Metal composites are widely utilized in medicinal and organic chemistry, as catalysts or reactants. According to International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) Q3D guidelines dictated for the permissible levels of palladium (Pd) allowed in the final drug product, palladium (Pd) needs to be removed from active pharmaceutical ingredients process streams. Platinum group metals (pgms) include Pd as well as platinum, rhodium, and ruthenium, involved in the drug manufacturing process.
  • Metal scavenging agents offer an exceptional solution for issues regarding palladium removal, primarily at low metal levels. Metal scavengers are available in various types such as silica-based, alumina-based, carbon-based, and resin-based. Silica-based metal scavenging agents held a major share of the global market, as silica-based metal scavenging agents offer various advantages such as superior extraction of metal, no leaching, high selectivity, excellent range of metal affinities, solvent compatibility, fast kinetics, easy scalability, cost efficient, and thermal and mechanical stability.

High Cost of Metal Scavenging Agents to Hamper Demand


Silica-based Agents to Lead Global Metal Scavenging Agents Market

  • In terms of type, the silica-based segment is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period in the metal scavenging agents market.
  • The silica-based segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of ~4%from 2019 to 2027. Silica gels have been majorly utilized as raw materials in the metal scavenging agents market. This is due to the various advantages offered by silica-based metal scavenging agents over traditional scavengers, such as ease of purification and handling. Fast kinetics, excellent purity, higher yields, wide compatibility of the solvents, as well as their applicability to various reactions and end-use applications are additional factors that are expected to propel the demand for silica-based metal scavenging agents in laboratories and the pharmaceutical sector.

Pharmaceuticals to be Leading End-use Industry of Global Metal Scavenging Agents Market

  • The pharmaceuticals segment accounted for a notable share of more than 50%of the global metal scavenging agents market in 2018. Removal of post-reaction metal deposits is a major issue in pharmaceutical production. Purification of active pharmaceutical ingredients by traditional methods, such as activated carbon, chromatography, and distillation, may lead to issues such as high cost, low efficiency, reduced API yields, and time loss. However, the adoption of metal scavenging agents in the pharmaceutical product manufacturing process is estimated to overcome such issues. This is major factor that is expected to fuel the demand for metal scavenging agents in the pharmaceuticals segment.
  • The water treatment segment also accounted for a significant share of the global metal scavenging agents market in 2018,owing to the increasing adoption of metal scavenging agents in the water treatment industry. The chemicals segment is expected to expand at a moderate pace in the next few years, owing to the high demand for metal scavenging agents in laboratories as well as chemical plants across the globe.

Asia Pacific to be Lucrative Metal Scavenging Agents Market

Global Metal Scavenging Agents Market: Competition Landscape

  • InDecember 2015, Biotage announced the launch of a powerful metal scavenger for organic synthesis, i.e. ISOLUTE Si-Trisamine. It is a silica-based scavenger utilized for various electrophiles, including acid chlorides, aldehydes, sulfonyl chlorides, isothiocyanates, and isocyanates. It is also extremely effective in eliminating heavy metal ions such as Co2+, Ni2+, Mn2+, Fe3+, Cu2+, Ru+2, Pb+2, and Zn2+.
