According to a new published report by Allied Market Research titled, Sodium Hypochlorite Market by Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” The sodium hypochlorite market was valued at $266.0 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $422.5 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Sodium hypochlorite exhibits a unique odor, and is a yellowish, transparent compound with the chemical formula NaOCI. It is often made in one of two ways, first, water having dissolved salts and soft water is electrolyzed to generate sodium hypochlorite solution in water; second, water containing dissolved salts and soft water is electrolyzed to produce sodium hypochlorite solution in water. The second process involves adding chlorine gas to caustic soda, resulting in a sodium hypochlorite solution containing salt and water. It is a highly reactive, volatile, pale greenish-yellow aqueous solution, which is used as a household chemical. Sodium hypochlorite is widely known as an excellent oxidizer, germicide, bleaching agent, sterilizer, and the most effective disinfecting agent.

Owing to its antimicrobial properties, sodium hypochlorite is widely used in the water treatment chemical sector. The government disinfects water on an institutional level to ensure that public parks, schools, malls, and residential units have clean drinking water. The increased demand for sodium hypochlorite is fueled by a growing population as well as improved consumer lifestyles & hygiene. To reduce pollution, manufacturers process industrial waste before discharging it into streams and rivers. Thus, rise in awareness of environmental protection is one of the primary factors propelling the growth of the sodium hypochlorite market. However, owing to large rate of chlorine evaporation, it is often a hazardous and corrosive compound. On heating, sodium hypochlorite disintegrates and when it comes into contact with certain metals, it forms poisonous gases and acids, which is hindering the sodium hypochlorite market growth.

The sodium hypochlorite market is segmented on the basis of application and region. By application, the market is classified into bleaching & cleaning, oxidizing, disinfectant, deodorizing and other. Region wise, the sodium hypochlorite market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Presently, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the sodium hypochlorite market.

Sodium hypochlorite is one of the key feedstocks consumed in formulating these hygiene and disinfectant products by companies globally.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has severely affected several industries such as textile, paper, and medical, causing a temporary shutdown of manufacturing plants, leading to a drop in sales and disturbance in the supply–demand chain. This disruption in sales has affected the demand and consumption of products, leading to a substantial decline in market growth.
