Sodium chlorite can be effectively used as disinfectant such as water purification, surface purification, and water disinfection. Sodium chlorite is used as a disinfectant for suppressing the growth of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Moreover, use of sodium chlorite as disinfectant helps to protect from disease causing microorganisms and bacteria. It can also be used on hard & soft surface and consumer disinfectant solution. In addition, utilization of sodium chlorite as bleaching agent offers advantages such as it is capable of eradicating growth of a wide range of harmful micro-organisms, which is predicted to augment the demand for sodium chlorite.

However, ingestion of sodium chlorite for prolonged period of time leads to health associated risks, such as fatigue, diarrhea, headache, nausea, and dehydration, which is expected to hamper the market growth. 

Sodium chlorite is effective against reducing the growth of Enterococcus faecalis bacteria. Eradication and removal of microbial irritants, microorganisms, and microorganisms toxins is utmost important in endodontic therapy. Thus, use of sodium chlorite as an antimicrobial agent for this purpose may offer remunerative opportunities for the sodium chlorite market in the coming future. In addition, acidified sodium chlorite is an effective antimicrobial agent that can be utilized for prohibiting the growth of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and natural microflora bacteria. Carrots that are shredded are vulnerable to growth of Escherichia coli O157:H7. Thus, use of acidified sodium chlorite solution is proven to minimize the growth of Escherichia coli. All these factors are collectively driving the global market and thereby predicted to offer new opportunity during the forecast period.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Sodium Chlorite Market

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe.
  • The sodium chlorite market has been moderately impacted due to the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, owing to its dependence on water treatment, paper, textile, and other sectors. According to a Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), despite the slowing down of the economy in European region, most of the paper mills ran without disruptions in 2020, though some mills have operated at reduced efficiency due to lower demand levels.
  • Moreover, demand for disinfectants and sanitary products have boosted the demand for chlorine and related products during the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to the moderate boost in demand for sodium chlorite during the COVID-19 period.
  • However, several textile companies have either shutdown or shrank their operations due to the risk of infections among the workforce where sodium chlorite is widely used as bleaching agents. COVID-19 has led to supply chain disruptions across the textile, apparel, and fashion industry in unprecedented way. According to the article published by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the global supply chains owing to restrictions imposed by countries on international trades, and manufacturers have faced cancellation in orders due to suddenly diminished demand.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of leading companies, the global sodium chlorite market is expected to exhibit high growth potential owing to its use in water treatment, textile, medical, and paper industries. Presence of large chlorite concentration in drinking water leads to carcinogenicity in male and female. Thus, use of sodium chlorite for removal of chlorite concentration in drinking water is the key market trend. In addition, sodium chlorite can be used as primary and secondary commercial bleaching agent in water treatment plants. Mainly, 6%, 12%, and 15% sodium chlorite is used as bleaching agent in water treatment plants, which is predicted to offer lucrative growth opportunities in future. Chlorine dioxide used in paper mills helps to run the plant efficiently and keep the plant clean at low dosage. This, in turn, reduces the production downtimes without altering the adsorbable organic halides (AOX) content in the paper and paper waste. Thus, sodium chlorite is used to generate chlorine dioxide in paper industry.

Sodium chlorite is effectively used as a textile bleaching agent owing to its effectiveness against various fibers, which is the key market trend. In addition, sodium chlorite can be used for bleaching of cotton, bast fiber, and other man-made fiber products such as nylon, dralon, and others. Apart from bleaching agent, sodium chlorite is employed in textile industry for oxidizing natural waxes and pectins present in cellulose fiber products. Use of sodium chlorite as oxidizing agent helps to solubilize these fiber products and make fiber more even and workable. This is not only gaining immense attention in the market but also emerging as a key strategy in terms of gaining additional market demand. Furthermore, utilization of sodium chlorite in textile industry offers other benefits such as it helps to destroy natural color matter without attacking the fiber material.
