For the uninitiated, chelating agents are molecular compounds that help in creation of solid complexes by forming chemical bonds with metallic ions. Owing to their high metal specificity, these compounds can be used as selective flocculants for metallic remobilization from sediments and aquifers. They can also be utilized to perturb steel speciation and to encourage the bioavailability of metals. Besides, chelating agents find a wide array of applications, including chemical evaluation, detergents, water remedy system, oil production, dairy & beverage industry, drug treatments, and power flowers among others.

From a geographical standpoint, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Europe are the key contributors to the overall chelating agents market remuneration. Industry experts cite that North America currently accounts for majority of the industry share due to spike in demand from various end-use industries across the region.
