Sodium chloride, with the chemical formula NaCl, is an ionic compound representing a 1:1 ratio of sodium and chloride ions. Also commonly referred to as salt, table salt or common salt, sodium chloride is readily soluble in water. It appears as a white crystalline solid and acts as an emetic and a flame retardant. It is also essential in maintaining the electrolyte balance of fluids in a person’s body. Moreover, the body requires NaCl to absorb and transport nutrients, maintain blood pressure levels and the right balance of fluid, transmit nerve signals, and contract and relax muscles. In recent years, there has been a significant rise in the usage of NaCl in various sectors such as animal feed, water and waste treatment, textiles and pharmaceuticals. It is also used to de-ice the streets and highways during heavy snowfall in the North American and European regions.

Sodium Chloride Market Trends:

The increasing applications of sodium chloride in diverse industries represent the primary factor bolstering the market growth. In the food sector, NaCl is mainly used for seasoning, coloring, curing meats and preserving fish. It helps to enhance the flavor, preserve foods, prevent spoilage and keep ready-to-eat meats and cheeses safe to eat. Salt is also used in the fermenting process for foods like sauerkraut, pickles and kefir. Besides this, it is utilized in catheter flush injections or intravenous infusions and for cleaning objects such as contact lenses. NaCl is one of the essential chemicals used in the chemical industry, mainly for manufacturing caustic soda, sodium chlorite, ammonium chloride and sodium bicarbonate. In addition, a large quantity of sodium chloride is employed as feedstock in many industrial processes and for water softening purposes. These factors are expected to provide a positive thrust to the market growth in the near future.
