The increased usage of the compound for applications such as purification of gold, and use in industries such as nanotechnology, personal care and cosmetics, medicines, industrial catalysts, and electronics are expected to lead to an encouraging rise in the global demand for gold chloride in the next few years.
However, issues surrounding the consistent supply of gold chloride are expected to hamper the overall growth prospects of the market to a certain extent. Nevertheless, advances in nanotechnology are expected to lead to the development of a variety of gold chloride nanoparticles for use across a myriad of applications. These developments are expected to provide immense growth opportunities for players in the market.
North America and Europe presently hold the dominant share in the global gold chloride market. North America held the largest share in global gold chloride market in terms of consumption. Developed markets across these regions are progressively recovering from sluggish economic condition and expenditure on medical and pharmaceutical procedures and the chemicals industry are constantly rising. As a result, the demand for gold chloride is expected to grow at an encouraging pace in the next few years.
Europe followed North America in terms of consumption and is expected to grow at moderate pace during the next few years. Asia Pacific held the small share in the global gold chloride market; however it is expected to be the fastest growing market in the next few years. In terms of production, Asia Pacific was the largest market and with expected capacity additions in China, the trend is expected to remain equally strong over the next few years.
The increased demand for cosmetics and medicines from middle class population in developing countries in Asia Pacific is expected to lead to a conducive growth environment for the gold chloride market. Furthermore, rapid economic development and increased disposable income of the citizens in developing countries of Asia Pacific is expected to lead to an increased consumption of the compound in the near future. The encouraging growth of the industrial sector in China is expected to increase in demand for gold chloride across a number of industrial applications.
