Global Potassium Chloride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Potassium chloride is a mineral that is found in many foods and also available as a dietary supplement. It is used as an electrolyte to help maintain fluid balance, nerve function, and muscle contraction.


Powder is a solid form of the product, which is used in various end-use industries such as agriculture, food & beverage and chemical. The industry has witnessed growth over the past few years owing to its increasing usage in potassium chloride (KCl) production.

The KCl market was previously dependent on imports from China; however, with growing demand for the product within North America.


Crystal is a solid form of an ionic compound. It's formed by the combination of two or more elements and has a unique shape. Crystal structure allows them to have different properties from other compounds such as hardness, strength, purity, and chemical composition. Some crystals are used in industries for their beneficial properties such as X-ray diffraction property which can be used to examine the purity of drugs or food products etc.

Application Insights:

The global potassium chloride market is segmented on the basis of applications into fertilizers, industrial, pharmaceutical and other applications. The fertilizer application segment accounted for a share of over 60% in 2017. This high share is attributable to the extensive use as a crop nutrient by farmers across the globe. Potassium plays an important role in plant metabolism and development; it provides plants with energy during photosynthesis and helps them resist cold temperatures as well as cope with low soil water content. Thus, increasing demand for agricultural products globally has led to increased utilization of these salts in farming activities over the past few years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for potassium chloride, accounting for a share of more than 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising product demand from various end-use industries including agriculture, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals. China is one of the major producers and consumers of potassium chloride across this region due to presence of large scale fertilizer manufacturers in this country along with other factors such as low production cost coupled with easy availability of labor & raw materials are responsible for driving industry growth in China over past few years.

Europe was estimated as second-largest regional market followed by North America on account that Europe has some major countries like Russia and Germany which are also two prominent markets where product consumption is high due to its application scope in numerous industrial sectors including fertilizers, food processing etc., Whereas U.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for potassium chloride from the agricultural sector as a fertilizer due to its high potassium content is expected to be a key growth driver for the market over the next few years.
  • Growing demand for processed foods is also projected to boost the demand for potassium chloride in food and beverage applications, thereby propelling market growth.
  • Rising awareness about the health benefits of consuming potassium chloride is another key factor that is anticipated to fuel market growth in the near future.
  • The increasing use of potassium chloride as an ingredient in various personal care products is also expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.
