Desiccant Market Dynamics:

Desiccant Market Covid 19 Impact: Various markets around the world are affected by the disruptions caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. The same has been observed to some extent in the pharmaceutical desiccant market. This was due to several factors such as Supply chain disruption and strict government regulations. During the Covid19 Pandemic, the demand for desiccants in end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals and packaging increased dramatically. However, many blockades and industrial recessions have reduced demand from the electronics market. One of the most important components in the pharmaceutical sector is desiccant. It helps in the reduction of moisture content in medicines, preserving their quality and extending their shelf life. There was a shortage of pharmaceutical desiccants in the early stages of the COVID19 pandemic. This is due to supply chain disruptions in most regions. Following the initial wave of COVID19, different governments took steps to standardize the pharmaceutical supply chain. During this time, demand for pharmaceutical desiccants expanded for a variety of medicinal uses. To keep the COVID19 test kit valid throughout delivery to and from the lab, this ingredient is included. Abbott Laboratories, for example, uses desiccants for quick COVID 19 identification tests and may view the results. Due to supply chain disruptions, desiccants were difficult to get in some end-use sectors. However, supply chains have been limited since the Covid 19 Pandemic. Desiccant Market Drivers: 1) Increasing food and pharmaceutical packaging practices: Increasing food and pharmaceutical packaging practices boost the demand for the desiccant market during the forecast period.

Each product requires careful humidity control to ensure the safe delivery of these fragile products. Traditionally, the moisture barrier is on the product packaging and the desiccant (often silica gel) is in the box. However, there are much more sustainable and cost-effective ways to protect both the product and the packaging. The electronics market is expected to reach the US$ 989.33 Bn market size by growing at a CAGR of 5.3% through the forecast period. This increased use of electronics and high demand for innovative products will drive the desiccant market growth. 3) Increased use of desiccant in the chemical sector and air conditioning system: Increasing the use of desiccants in the chemical sector and air conditioning systems will drive the desiccant market in near future. In general, chemical absorption is more effective than physical absorption. However, it is also relatively expensive compared to physically absorbent desiccants, which is exactly why the demand for physically absorbent desiccants on the market today is relatively high. Liquid desiccant air conditioners use liquid desiccant to remove moisture, latent heat, and sensible heat from the process air. The air conditioning system market is valued at US$ 115 Bn in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2 through the forecast period. 4) Zeolite and silica gel desiccants have great demand in the market: Desiccants like silica gel and zeolites are in high demand on the market. Desiccants absorb water content and can cause harm if they come into contact with the human body, so care must be used when handling them. To ensure optimum safety, specific packing materials for desiccant. The silica gel desiccant market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% through the forecast period. Desiccant Market Restraints: 1) High equipment cost: The equipment cost of the machine for producing the desiccant is very high and requires frequent maintenance, and the increase in the equipment cost of the machine increases the production cost of the desiccant. This increases end-user costs. This is hampering the growth of the desiccant market. 2) Stringent rules and a high final Pharma product cost: Pharmaceutical packaging helps to safeguard pharmaceuticals against contamination, damage, degradation, and counterfeiting. Before being employed in pharmaceutical products, desiccant products must demonstrate consistency in their manufacture and technical performance. Furthermore, the relative cost of the final finished product has increased multiple times due to the high quality of packaging for safeguarding pharmaceutical products from external pollutants and keeping them bacteria-free for a long period. As a result, the high cost of the completed product is expected to be a major stumbling block to the pharmaceutical desiccants market's growth.
