The United States caustic potash market is currently witnessing steady growth. Caustic potash or potassium hydroxide (KOH) refers to an inorganic alkaline compound made by the chemical process of electrolysis. It is an essential ingredient used for manufacturing various industrial chemicals like potassium chloride, acetates, cyanides, permanganates and citrates, along with phosphates, soaps and detergents, liquid fertilizers neutralization agents, and batteries. The compound is highly reactive and corrosive in nature, due to which it finds applications across many industries that rely on the strong chemical base with its ability to degrade materials.
The United States caustic potash market is primarily driven by the increasing consumption of processed and canned food products. Potassium bicarbonate, derived from caustic potash, is used as a major additive in the processed food industry. Caustic potash is also utilized as a de-icing agent due to the harsh and prolonged winter seasons across the United States. This generates a huge seasonal demand for caustic potash in the country. Besides this, it is used to manufacture various cleaning agents and as a sanitizer in wineries for cleaning the biofilms of bacteria and yeast inside the tanks. These applications of caustic potash in diverse end use sectors are providing a positive impact on the industry. On account of these factors, the market is expected to continue its steady growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
