Market Overview:

The global potassium hydrogen oxalate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for potassium hydrogen oxalate from various applications such as biochemical research, cleaning (metal, wood, etc.), and others. In terms of type, the reagent-grade segment is expected to hold a major share of the global potassium hydrogen oxalate market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its high purity and superior quality as compared to other types of potassium hydrogen oxalate available in the market.

Global Potassium Hydrogen Oxalate Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Potassium Hydrogen Oxalate is a potassium salt of oxalic acid with the formula KH2PO4. It is an important intermediate in the production of fertilizers and other agricultural chemicals.


Reagent-grade is used for laboratory applications and its major application includes the detection of hydrogen oxalate. It also finds application in the preparation of solutions containing potassium hydrogen oxalate. The product is a colorless crystalline solid that dissolves in water with neutral taste and has a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Industrial Grade:

Industrial grade is used in the production of Potassium Hydrogen Oxalate (PHO). It is a highly pure form of potassium hydrogen oxalate. Industrial grade PHO has very low impurities and contains more than 99% of pure substance. It also has high thermal stability, which allows its use in higher end products such as pharmaceuticals and food additives among others.

Application Insights:

The potassium hydroxalate market is segmented based on applications into biochemical research, cleaning (metal, wood & etc.), and others. The other application segment includes food & beverage processing and pharmaceuticals. In 2017, the biochemical research application dominated the global potassium hydroxalate market with a share of over 80%. Potassium hydroxalates are used in various academic studies for synthesizing compounds related to energy metabolism as well as gene expression. These compounds are also used in various biomedical applications such as DNA/RNA synthesis and protein crystallization.

Biochemical research accounted for a significant share of the overall revenue due to extensive usage across different fields of study such as drug discovery & development, synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry along with genomics & proteomics studies involving bio-organic molecules like polymers, amino acids along with their derivatives which include salts like potassium hydrogen oxalate (KOH).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific potassium hydrogen oxalate market led the global industry and accounted for over 45% of the total revenue in 2016. The region is expected to witness significant growth on account of rising demand from end-use industries such as cleaning, metalworking, and pharmaceuticals. In addition, increasing investments by multinational companies are anticipated to drive product demand over the forecast period.

China was one of the largest producers and consumers in Asia Pacific owing to easy availability of raw materials coupled with cheap labor costs at a domestic level. However, due to stringent regulations imposed by various regulatory bodies such as China Chemical Industry Association (CCIA) regarding production capacity utilization rates have declined significantly which has negatively impacted production volumes in this country since 2014. This trend is projected to continue until 2018 when CCIA will start allowing limited amounts of potassium hydroxide for export purposes only if it complies with their specifications related performance standards & emission levels etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the pharmaceutical and chemical industries for potassium hydrogen oxalate as a precursor to other chemicals.
  • Growing popularity of potassium hydrogen oxalate as a dietary supplement for its purported health benefits.
  • Rising demand from emerging markets such as China and India for potassium hydrogen oxalate due to the growth of their manufacturing sectors.
  • Technological advances that have made it easier to produce potassium hydrogen oxalate in large quantities, reducing its cost-effectiveness compared to other alternatives.
