Global Nitrogen Trifluoride (NF3) And Fluorine Gas (F2) Market is expected to reach USD 1,266.8 million and USD 17,526.0 million respectively by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View research, Inc. Growing demand for LCD televisions, owing to their low power consumption, is expected to drive NF3 demand in silicon wafer cleaning applications. F2 demand for uranium enrichment is expected to surge in line with uranium production as a result of growth in nuclear power production.
Semiconductor chips were the largest application segment for NF3 with a demand of 6.9 kilo tons in 2013 owing to growth in semiconductor industry in Asia Pacific. F2 was widely used in uranium enrichment making it the largest application segment in 2013 accounting for demand of 26.5 kilo tons. Fluorine is used in the form of UF6 in order to impart fissionable properties to uranium isotopes.
