$ 1799




The global sodium chlorate market reached a volume of nearly 4 Million Tons in 2017, registering a CAGR of around 4% during 2010-2017. The market is further projected to reach a volume of about 5 Million Tons by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of more than 3% during 2018-2023. 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.

Global Sodium Chlorate Market Drivers:

  • The paper and pulp industry is one of the largest markets for sodium chlorate where it is used for on-site generation of chlorine dioxide. It is the key bleaching agent for elemental chlorine free (ECF) chemical pulping process and is extensively used in emerging markets like India and China.
  • On account of its oxidizing properties, sodium chlorate is increasingly being used for several applications such as tanning and finishing leather, and manufacturing of dyes. The mounting demand for sodium chlorate in these industries is expected to bolster the growth of the market in the upcoming years. 
  • As sodium chlorate is phytotoxic to all green plants, it is now being utilized as a non-selective herbicide to control the growth of a variety of plants including morning glory, creeping thistle, johnsongrass, bamboo, Ragwort, and St John's wort. It is mainly used for vegetation control on roadsides, fenceways, etc. and on non-crop land for spot treatment.
  • Sodium chloride and water are the two major feedstocks required for the manufacturing of sodium chlorate. These raw materials are low in cost and abundant in nature, due to which sodium chlorate is affordable. This, coupled with ease of storage, makes it ideal for a variety of applications.
