Global Industrial Salts Market to Reach US$ 17.1 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Product Demand From Chemical Industry

Published on Jun 28, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Industrial Salts Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global industrial salts market reached a value of US$ 14.5 Billion in 2021. Industrial salts are generally prepared from rock salts, seawater deposits and natural and artificial brines, which are mainly produced via solar evaporation, vacuum evaporation and mining processes. They are essential ingredients that are used in multiple industrial processes, including the manufacturing of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, textile, dyes, paper, glass, rubber, plastics and leather. The demand for industrial salts is increasing across the globe due to rapid industrialization and the rising infrastructural development projects across multiple countries, including the development of roads, walkways and platforms, since they are extensively adopted as agents for the de-icing process.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Industrial Salts Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the escalating product demand from the chemical industry. This is supported by the rising utilization of industrial salts in the manufacturing of a wide range of chemicals, including soda ash, caustic soda, sodium sulfate, hydrochloric acid and liquid sodium. Moreover, the widespread adoption of chlorine as a hygiene and disinfection product across residential, commercial and industrial spaces, coupled with the rapid outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) across the globe, has significantly contributed to the product sales, thereby catalyzing the industrial salt market. Additionally, the growing need for removing impurities from metals and secondary aluminum is providing a boost to the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of industrial salts as an additive and filler in the production of detergents across the soap-making industry is further impacting the market favorably. Other factors, including the augmenting product utilization in the water treatment process and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 17.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 3% during 2022-2027.
