Industrial Salt Market Highlights 2020 – 2029

The industrial salt market is estimated to garner a decent amount of revenue by growing at a modest CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021 – 2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to the robust growth of the application areas of industrial salt such as water treatment, chemicals, food processing and textiles. Rising international trade, increasing production capacities of salt manufacturing units and abundance of rock salt deposits are another factors expected to drive growth to the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, industrial salt is easily available owing to its high consumption and absence of other economic substitutes, which is projected to provide opportunities to market growth in the coming years.

The market is segmented by application into oil & gas, chemical processing, water treatment and de-icing, out of which, the chemical processing segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the industrial salt market on account of the growing demand for industrial salt in soda ash, chlorine and caustic soda production. The segment for de-icing is also expected to occupy a notable share in the market in the near future owing to the effective ice control properties of industrial salt such as high efficiency at lower temperatures. Furthermore, the section for oil & gas application is projected to grow significantly during the forecast period, which can be associated with the high consumption of industrial salt during drilling and extraction procedures.
