India Caustic Potash Market to Reach 171,746.4 Tons by 2032, Fueled by Significant Growth of Construction Industry

April 04, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­India Caustic Potash Market Report by Form (Solid, Liquid), Grade (Industrial, Reagent, Pharma), End Use (Potassium Carbonate, Potassium Phosphates, Potassium Soaps and Detergents, Liquid Fertilizers, Agricultural Chemicals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the India caustic potash market size reached 129,916.6 Tons in 2023. Caustic potash, or potassium hydroxide, is a potent, highly reactive, and extremely corrosive alkaline compound. It is a white, odorless solid that readily absorbs water from the atmosphere and easily dissolves in water, alcohol, and other polar solvents. Caustic potash is produced by the electrolysis of brine prepared from potassium chloride and water. It finds a wide range of applications across the industrial, agricultural, and household sectors as a precursor in manufacturing various chemicals, such as detergents, textiles, and pharmaceuticals, and as an electrolyte in alkaline batteries. Apart from this, it is used as a pH adjuster while manufacturing liquid soaps, lotions, shampoos, and hairsprays.

India Caustic Potash Market Trends:

The significant growth of the construction industry, spurred by the country's rapid urbanization and rising population, is fueling the demand for caustic potash as a construction material, which is primarily driving the market growth. Moreover, the widespread product utilization as a cleaning agent in manufacturing various household and personal care products, such as liquid soaps, lotions, shampoos, hairsprays, and denture cleaners, is impelling the market growth. In line with this, the escalating concerns and awareness regarding the importance of hygiene, improving living standards, and inflating disposable incomes of consumers are creating a favorable outlook for the market. Additionally, the exponentially growing demand for food in the country and the enhancing need to improve crop yields and control weeds are facilitating the use of potash-based fertilizers and herbicides, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Concurrent with this, the large-scale product employment across the flourishing food and beverage (F&B) sector as a stabilizer, thickening agent, and pH adjuster to improve the shelf life of food products is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, the surging use of caustic potash in numerous industrial processes as a precursor in manufacturing various chemicals, paper, textiles, and pharmaceuticals is aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach 171,746.4 Tons by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2024-2032.
