Global Sodium Chlorate Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global sodium chlorate market is estimated to garner a large amount of revenue and grow at a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed largely to the increasing usage of sodium chlorate for applications such as tanning and finishing leather, and manufacturing of dyes as a result of its excellent oxidizing properties. Along with this, high utilization of the product in paper & pulp industry as a bleaching agent for on-site generation of chlorine dioxide is also expected to drive market growth in the upcoming years. Furthermore, growing use of sodium chlorate for vegetation control on fence ways and roadsides is projected to augment the sales of the product in the near future.

Sodium Chlorate Market Graph

The market is segmented by application into bleaching agents, herbicide, and oxidizing agents, out of which, the bleaching agents segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global sodium chlorate market. This can be accounted primarily to the high usage of sodium chlorate as a bleaching agent in the paper industry for manufacturing high quality and environmentally friendly white paper products. Additionally, on the basis of form, the crystalline segment is assessed to acquire the largest share during the forecast period owing to the ability of crystalline form to provide well-defined surface area to improve the bleaching process. Apart from this, growing use of sodium chlorate crystals for making explosives is also predicted to boost the growth of the market segment in the coming years.CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
