Global Inorganic Salt Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Inorganic salt is a type of salt that is composed of inorganic materials. This type of salt is used to make chemical reactions occur and it also helps to control the pH levels in a solution. Inorganic salts are also responsible for transporting ions throughout a solution.

Sodium Salts:

Sodium salts is a chemical compound, which consists of an ion and an organic compound. The most common form of sodium salt is table salt, or sodium chloride. Sodium chloride can be found in nature as tears or sweat of people who cry or workout in the sun for a long time; it also exists in seawater and rock deposits.

Magnesium Salts:

Magnesium salts are a group of minerals that contain magnesium and different types of other elements such as calcium, sodium, potassium, etc. Magnesium sulfate contains magnesium ion (III) and it's commonly called as magnesia. It is a white crystalline compound usually available in the form of anhydrous powder but sometimes also exists in the form of chlorides & oxides.

Application Insights:

The global inorganic salt market has been segmented on the basis of application into agrochemicals, food, healthcare, cement manufacturing and others. The healthcare application segment is projected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for inorganic salts for various applications such as water treatment and ice harvesting. In addition, rising awareness regarding healthy lifestyle practices coupled with an increase in disposable income levels across developing countries is expected to drive the demand for health & hygiene products which will further augment growth over the coming years.

The food processing industry utilizes sodium chloride (NaCl) as one of its key ingredients along with other additives that help enhance product quality and nutritional content. Furthermore, growing consumption of processed foods particularly among urban consumers is anticipated to fuel industry expansion during the forecast period significantly contributing towards regional growth over next few years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global inorganic salt market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan has been driving regional growth. Increasing industrialization coupled with growing population has resulted in rising demand for food products which is likely to drive product demand from agriculture sector.

China was one of the largest producers as well as consumers of these salts with production estimated at around 9 million tons and consumption estimated at around 11 million tons respectively. In addition, increasing investments by domestic manufacturers are anticipated to boost production levels over the next eight years thereby supporting industry growth in Asia Pacific region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the end-use industries such as food & beverage, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of inorganic salts among consumers.
  • Rising investments by manufacturers in R&D to develop new and innovative products.
  • Expansion of distribution channels across different regions worldwide.
