Global Potassium Sulphate Market Overview

Potassium Sulphate is a water soluble, non-crystalline inflammable salt that is also known by the name sulphate of potash. Potassium sulphates are used in agrochemical industry to manufacture fertilizers that provide both sulphur and potash to the crops. Arcanite is the mineral form of potassium sulphate which is rarely found in the environment. Potassium sulphate can be produced by the reaction of potassium chloride with sulfuric acid analogous to the Leblanc process. The crude form of potassium sulphate salt is used in the manufacturing of glass. Potassium sulphate has an orthorhombic crystal structure with 174.25 g/mol molar mass. Potassium sulphate is used in pharmaceutical industry for growth, repair of damaged tissues and various other uses. As compared to other potash fertilizers, potassium sulphate has low chloride content and lower slat index. The key sources for potassium sulphate are generally found in combination, these combinations include other mineral sulphates for instance, sodium, calcium and magnesium.

Market Size & Forecast

Potassium sulphate market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period. The potassium sulphate market is estimated to value at USD 153 million at the end of the forecast period. Many multi-national companies are concentrating towards new product advances using potassium sulphate. Moreover, the many advantageous properties of potassium sulphate are exploited in the field of agriculture and pharmaceuticals. New uses for potassium sulphate derivatives have been discovered which is expected to drive the potassium sulphate market rapidly.

Currently the global potassium sulphate market is observing vibrant growth owing to increasing demand of multi mineral fertilizers in the market. Advances in agricultural industry in the past few years and growing agricultural innovation explorations are projected to drive potassium sulphate market besides the wide range of functions of potassium sulphate in an immense range of products such as fertilizers, food nutrient supplements, and cosmetic thickeners during the forecast period.On the basis of regional platform, global Potassium Sulphate market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region.

Used in combination with sodium sulphate and magnesium sulphate in pharmaceutical industry in order to treat to cleanse bowel before colonoscopy, North America is panned to observe substantial potassium sulphate market growth due to rising potassium sulphate usage. North America is expected to be followed by Asia-Pacific in terms of consumption on the back of expanding potassium sulphate requirements in food and agrochemical industries. On account of multiplying potassium sulphate uses in growing end-use products such as nutrition supplements, combination laxative, cosmetic viscosity increasing agents, Asia Pacific is budding as a regional potassium sulphate consumption market. Europe is expected to drive the demand and positively impact potassium sulphate market growth over the forecast period owing to increasing potassium sulphate application for crop fertilization as these fertilizers cause very low burning of crop roots. However, weak economic conditions in countries such as Russia, Spain and others is expected to showcase a more modest growth of the potassium sulphate market across the region over the forecast period.
