Industrial Salts Market Size Expected to Reach $19.4 Billion by 2030


Report Code : A14208

quote Rapidly growing importance of chemical processing industries led to surge in demand for industrial salts as these salts are important for production of many chlorine-based chemical compounds. Increase in demand for oil & gas has a positive impact on the industrial salts market. Embracing the future demands from the chemical processing industries and presence of huge salt resources led to business expansion of many companies to develop more efficient solar evaporation method to extract salts from brine solution. Depletion of freshwater resources and increase in investments toward water treatment plants across the globe are also expected to create potential opportunities for the industrial salt market during the forecast period. quote

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "industrial salts market by source, by manufacturing process and by application: global opportunity analysis and industry forecast, 2020–2030," the global industrial salts market size was valued $14.2 billion in 2020 to $19.4 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2020 to 2030.

Industrial salts are mainly used in the chemical industry to produce caustic soda and other chlor-alkali products. These are also used in manufacturing of polyester, glass, paper, tires, brass bleach, as well as to set dyes in fabric. Industrial salts are available in various levels of purity, depending on their applications. Rise in demand for petroleum products, owing to large market share of fuel-based automobile is also another major factor that fuels growth of industrial salts.  In addition, outbreak of the pandemic has created awareness among people regarding healthcare, which have led to increase in demand for hygiene products such as detergents, soaps, and laundry products that make use of industrial salts and in turn, propel the market growth. Moreover, rise in investments by various governments to construct water treatment plants also drives the market growth as industrial salts are used for water purification.

Rapid increase in population and depletion of fertile land resources to produce agriculture products lead to increase in demand for fertilizers where inorganic salts are used for production, which, in turn, propels demand for industrial salts. Increase in innovation of various chemical salts for development of the agriculture sector across the globe also provide lucrative opportunities for growth of the industrial salts market 

The global industrial salts market is segmented on the basis of source, manufacturing process, application, and region.

On the basis of source, the global industrial salts market is segmented into rock salt and natural brine.
