Global Benzotriazole Market Is Set To Reach US$ 900 Million By 2033


The global benzotriazole market is valued at US$ 400 million in 2023 and is set to reach US$ 900 million by 2033, expanding rapidly at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period (2023 to 2033). Benzotriazole (BTA) is an organic compound that is also known as 1- benzotriazole-3- carboxylate. It is triazole in structure, with an oxygen bridge connecting the two rings. Benzotriazole is a white crystalline substance with a slight odor. Benzotriazole can be manufactured through chemical synthesis or fermentation of microorganisms such as yeast.

It is extensively employed as a metal anticorrosive and UV stabilizer additive in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. Benzotriazole has been shown to be an effective corrosion inhibitor for a wide range of metals and alloys, including copper, brass, solder, steel, aluminum, and cast iron, in applications such as heat exchangers, automatic radiators, and heating systems. Benzotriazole is commonly used as a corrosion inhibitor for copper and copper alloys.

Benzotriazole-based ultraviolet stabilizers are frequently employed in industrial and personal hygiene products to safeguard the material or skin from damaging UV radiation. An ultraviolet stabilizer absorbs ultraviolet light. It is widely used to protect materials by preventing harmful ultraviolet light from damaging them, hence enhancing the materials’ performance, durability, stability, and service life. The growing demand from applications such as plastics, adhesives, coatings, and personal care is driving the sales growth of benzotriazole-based ultraviolet stabilizers. Plastics are regarded as one of the most important applications for benzotriazole-based ultraviolet stabilizers in both emerging and developed economies.
