Synthetic zeolites have strong ion-exchange capabilities, making them perfect for removing magnesium, calcium, and other ions from water. Detergent industry previously relied on poly-condensed phosphate builders like Sodium Tripolyphosphate (STPP), but these have been replaced with zeolite 4A due to many environmental regulations. The primary cause for this is growing public knowledge of the damaging effects of phosphate builders used in detergent manufacturing.


By-products of petrochemical reactions, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), are dangerous to human health and the environment. These are found in solvent-based paints, adhesives, sealants, printing inks, and a variety of consumer products, and chemical and petrochemical industries release the most of them. VOC emissions make breathing harder and harm the central nervous system. Formaldehyde, for example, is a VOC that is carcinogenic in nature. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) have developed tight laws to restrict VOC emissions. This is contributing to an increase in the demand for low-VOC products. Non-flammability hydrophobicity and thermal stability, are all characteristics of zeolites, making them effective adsorbents for the elimination of VOCs.


Because of their toxicity, some zeolite dust are called nuisance dust. Worries about the harmfulness of zeolites utilized in private consideration items have been raised. In any event, breathing in these residue particles accidentally raises security and well-being chances. If inhaled, zeolites are a complicated set of silicates that can induce lung illness. When utilized as impetuses, engineered zeolites are inclined to stop up, which can prompt poisonousness. Subsequently, harmfulness is a huge downside in the utilization of produced zeolites.

Impact of COVID-19 Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic had a profound impact on zeolites and their raw materials manufactured. In the year 2020, global zeolite output decreased. This is owing to a scarcity of raw materials and manpower, as well as government-mandated facility closures in 2020. Since February 2020, there has been a severe disturbance in the zeolite manufacturing industry's supply chain, and production has begun to decline. The COVID-19 pandemic, on the other hand, began to have a significant impact in the second quarter of 2020. Several zeolite manufacturers have experienced procurement challenges as a result of supply chain disruptions. Zeolite producers who rely on Chinese raw material suppliers have faced severe logistical difficulties. As a result of these reasons, the top zeolite players' manufacturing capabilities decreased in 2020.

16. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
