However, fluoroboric acid is a dangerous chemical compound, government-issued licences are required to make it, and the fluoroboric acid market share is likely to be hampered during the forecast period due to the limited production and sales of fluoroboric acid.

 

Fluoroboric acid has an effect on you when you take a breath and it passes through your skin. It is a corrosive chemical that can cause serious skin burns and eye irritation if it comes into touch with it. Shortness of breath can be caused by inhaling fluoroboric acid, which irritates the lungs. Fluoroboric acid can produce nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and tooth and bone changes if exposed to it repeatedly. As a result of this, the market for fluoroboric acid has been impacted.

 

Recent Developments in Market:

  1. In March 2021, BASF SE announced a price increase of USD 0.05 per pound for all grades of formic acid in North America. Fluoride, fluoropolymers, and fluorosurfactants, among other fluorinated derivatives, are all made from hydrofluoric acid. Hydrofluoric acid produces the fluorides Na3AlF6 and AlF3, which are the most prevalent. They are in high demand as a result of the growing aluminum market.

 

  1. Johnson Matthey (JM), a leader in the fluoroboric acid market, has signed a long-term battery materials supply agreement with Lithium Werks, a well-known name in the energy storage and battery business. JM will offer its LFP battery cathode material under the terms of the deal, which began in April 2019 and will last for the following five years. The deal was reached in order to meet the growing demand for highly efficient energy storage solutions from consumers and businesses.
