The US market for corrosion inhibitors will reach $1.6 billion in 2006. Higher-value, multi-functional and specialty blends will continue to replace low-cost commodity chemicals in most markets. Organic-based products will remain the largest type in value terms, although molybdates and silicates will experience faster growth.
This study analyzes the 950 million pound US corrosion inhibitors industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., azoles, amines, nitrites, phosphates, molybdates, phosphonates, silicates, chromates); and by market.
The study also examines the market environment, details market share and competitive strategies, and profiles 43 key companies including Suez, BetzDearborn, Ashland, Great Lakes Chemical, and Lubrizol.
