Zeolite molecular sieve is a specific molecular sieve which utilizes aluminosilicates as its basic composition. This sieve has small-sized holes which stops bigger molecules and allow the smaller ones to pass through them. As a result of this, this is used as a drying agent, also known as ‘desiccant’. A molecular sieve has the capacity to adsorb around 22% of water, with respect to its own weight. The adsorbed molecules remains locked on the upper surface of the sieve in the absence of another material. Transparency Market Research has recently published a report, titled “Zeolite Molecular Sieve Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Trends and Forecast 2016 – 2024.”
The effects of detergents on the nature can be altered by using sodium tripolyphosphate in place of zeolite molecular sieve. Zeolite molecular sieve is known to help in reduction of surface tension. As a result, it produces demineralized water by exchange of calcium ion. This helps detergent in eliminating the collection of dirt. These sieves can be used in soil conditioning as well. A lot of research and development work is being carried out by makers regarding the usage of silver zeolite, which will act as an antibacterial agent in healthcare field.
The amount of silica and alumina present in zeolite molecular sieve is around two as per the ratio. This gives it key features for example, increased speed of adsorption, ability to regenerate often, good crushing resistance, and good resistance to pollution as well.. These characteristics improves the efficiency and durability of sieve. These sieve are used in gas and petroleum sector as selective water adsorbent, from gas. This helps in usage of gas in those applications where gas with moisture tend to corrode the metal inside the equipment. Zeolite molecular sieve is utilized in filtering air which is supplied for breathing apparatus, as it removes the compressor exhaust and particulate from breathing air supply. However, high price of zeolite molecular sieve is likely to hinder the market growth to some extent.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the usage of sodium aluminosilicates for direct contact with consumable products, in April 2012. Hence, it is now used in pharmaceutical and personal healthcare sector. These zeolite molecular sieves have increased selectivity regarding ammonium ions. As a result, they are utilized widely to eradicate other effects in waterways, including eutrophication. They are used in the removal of heavy metal ions as well, which exist in water because of the contamination from industrial activities.
Geographically, Asia Pacific region is expected to hold majority of market share of zeolite molecular sieve. Besides, the zeolite molecular market is anticipated to grow in the regions of Middle East and Africa, owing to its use in rising petroleum sector in the region. High cost of zeolite molecular sieve can act as barrier for growth of the zeolite molecular sieve market.
