Global Sodium Chloride Market to Reach US$ 34.2 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Significant Growth in F&B Industry

March 31, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sodium Chloride Market Report by Source (Sea Water, Rock Salt, and Others), End-Use (Chemical Industry, Food Grade Salt, Road De-icing, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global sodium chloride market size reached US$ 29.1 Billion in 2023. Sodium chloride (NaCl) is a clear, white crystalline inorganic compound with a high melting and boiling point. It is commercially extracted from seawater and underground salt deposits through solar and vacuum evaporation and mining processes. It is also produced by the chemical reaction between sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and hydrochloric acid (HCL). Sodium chloride is widely used in food processing and preservation, water treatment, oil and gas drilling, chemical synthesis, and de-icing processes. It is also used to produce papers, drugs, saline solutions, textiles, battery electrolytes, ceramics, and leathers. It is a cost-effective, versatile, and water-soluble substance that exhibits electrical conductivity and excellent hygroscopic and ionic properties.

Global Sodium Chloride Market Trends:

The significant growth in the food and beverage (F&B) industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Sodium chloride is widely used as a flavor enhancer, preservative, and curing agent in meats, vegetables, snacks, pickles, ham, bacon, cheese, and bakery products. Moreover, the widespread product utilization as a feedstock in the chemical industry to produce chlorine gas, caustic soda, ammonium chloride, sodium carbonate, hydrochloric acid, and sodium hypochlorite is providing an impetus to the market growth. In line with this, the increasing product application in the pharmaceutical industry to produce tablets, capsules, hemodialysis solutions, buffering agents, and saline solutions for intravenous (IV) injections, wound cleaning, and nasal spray is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the recent development of a solar-powered desalination process that utilizes solar energy to drive pumps and evaporate seawater, which, in turn, saves costs and minimizes energy consumption, is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) technology, which aims to reduce water pollution and promote water reuse in the sodium chloride production process, is driving the market growth. Furthermore, the widespread product adoption in the de-icing process to melt ice and snow from roads, streets, highways, sidewalks, and airports is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rising product application in water treatment, increasing investment in the research and development (R&D) of advanced production methods, and the widespread product demand in textile manufacturing, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 34.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 1.7% during 2024-2032.
