Hydrochloric Acid has various commercial, industrial and domestic application, such as: Hydrochloric Acid is used in the production of organic compounds like vinyl chloride and dichloroethane, which is further used to production Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC). Also in the production of special inorganic compounds for water treatment process used hydrochloric acid, such as drinking water and for the wastewater. Furthermore, it is used to efficiently regulate the pH level of a varied range of industrial processes including the production of foods, drinking water, medicals, in the salt purification process, swimming pools to optimal levels for swimmers. It is highly used in a process to steel pickling in which it is used as cleaning agent to remove rust. Also Hydrochloric Acid is effectively used to regenerate ion exchangers hence it is used in to ease oil well acidizing oil production. The food industry utilizes Hydrochloric Acid in the processing of various additives such as citric acid, fructose, and hydrolyzed vegetable protein. The increasing demand from the steel pickling and in production of organic & inorganic compound is expected to fuel market growth of Hydrochloric Acid in near future.
