The global sodium chlorate market reached a value of US$ 2.83 Billion in 2020. Sodium chlorate (NaClO3) is an inorganic chemical compound manufactured by the electrolysis of brine (NaCl). A powerful oxidizing agent, sodium chlorate is an odorless, pale-yellow crystalline solid and readily dissolves in water. It is inflammable in nature in pure form and acts as an extreme combustion accelerant in the presence of flammable materials during decomposition. Currently, sodium chlorate is widely used in the preparation of chlorine dioxide which is employed as a bleaching agent in the manufacturing of bleached pulp. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global sodium chlorate market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
