Market Definition

Sulfur hexafluoride is defined as a distinct agent that is an odourless, colourless, non- toxic and non- flammable nature. This compound will act as an outstanding electrical insulator and they are generally soluble in nonpolar organic solvents but are insoluble in water. They commonly have high density as compared to air. They are widely used in applications such as tracer compound, metal manufacturing, medical, dielectric medium, and others.

Drivers

  • Surging demand of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in healthcare sector

Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is widely used in echocardiograms and non-invasive operations to diagnose and examine disease's actual place and cause. The healthcare industry is growing as a result of spread of chronic illness and the changing lifestyle in industrialized countries. Government expenditure on healthcare, higher-income, and expanding population are some of the major factors driving the growth of the healthcare industry in developing nations, thus growing the demand for the sulfur hexafluoride in the global market.

  • High demand for sulfur hexafluoride as insulator in power distribution and transmission network

Power distribution and transmission networks rely heavily on substations and switchgears and. Switchgear is a group of devices that controls, protects, monitors, regulates and isolates electrical equipment throughout the grid, including circuit breakers, switches, fuses and relays. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas is nonflammable, chemically stable and electronegative, with a dielectric value of 2.5 times that of air. As a result, it is extensively employed as electrical insulation, arc quenching, and cooling medium in electrical switchgears, transformers, and substations. If any dissipation of heat takes place in electrical power systems for instance switchgears owing to electric arc discharge then sulfur hexafluoride can absorb electron energy and reduce the arc temperature by capturing free electrons because of its heat transfer and high electronegativity properties. The combination of free electrons and SF6 gas produces large and heavy ions with low mobility rates, therefore efficiently preventing electron flashovers and avalanches.

Opportunities

  • Rise in demand for sulfur hexafluoride for semiconductor production in electronics industry

Sulfur hexafluoride (SE6) is a significant gas in the semiconductor sector. Semiconductors are important components of electronic devices, which are allowing advances in military systems, transportation, clean energy, communications, computing, healthcare and other applications. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is used for plasma etching of tungsten polysilicon and silicide. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is normally used as an etching aid gas in fabrication of sub micrometer features of current integrated circuits because it has higher content of fluorine than CF4, but does not undergo polymerization. In the radio-frequency (RF) discharge process, plasma has become the well-known technology which is used in the semiconductor industry. SF6 acts as an etching/ etching aid gas In the presence of an RF discharge which can be decomposed into lower sulfur fluorides. Therefore, rise in production of semiconductors for electronics and automotive industries; and rise in usage of sulfur hexafluoride in power transmission and distribution and systems are likely to create immense opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Restraints/ Challenges
