Global Potassium Sulphate Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Potassium sulphate is a soluble potassium salt that is used as a fertilizer and in manufacturing. It has the chemical formula K2SO4.

Agriculture Grade:

Agriculture grade is a fine, dry, white or brown powder that is produced on a large scale for the purpose of adding it to fertilizers. It has high demand in the global potassium sulfate market due to its usage as an important source of sulfur and other nutrients which are required for plant growth. The agriculture industry plays a major role in providing employment and contributing towards GDP (Gross Domestic Product) especially in developing countries such as India & China.

Industrial Grade:

Industrial grade is a type of potash which has been processed to remove all impurities and can be used directly in the production of fertilizers. It contains around 90% potassium and 10% sulphur which makes it very valuable for the fertilizer industry.

Application Insights:

The demand for potassium sulphate is expected to witness significant growth in the fruit and vegetable processing industry on account of its ability to maintain freshness and quality. The product also has a wide application scope in the tobacco industry as it helps remove impurities, such as nicotine, carbon monoxide, and heavy metals.

In addition, it plays an important role in plant nutrition by providing sulfur (S) deficiency symptoms like mottle leaves & stems; discolored older leaves; early leaf drop; & increased stem elongation. Sulfur deficiency can be remedied by incorporating potassium sulfate into the soil or foliar feeding with potassium sulfate solution. However, high costs may restrain its use in agriculture applications.

Potassium sulphate is widely used across several industries including pulp & paper manufacturing where it acts as a fumigant and disinfectant before adding new layers of chemicals onto paper making machines during production stages.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market for potassium sulfate in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global production owing to availability of cheap labor, low-cost land, and favorable weather conditions. China is one of the leading producers as well as consumers in this region due to presence of large scale manufacturers coupled with high demand from various end-use industries such as agriculture, food & beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, animal feed manufacturing among others.

China has been observed growing tobacco on a large scale which requires huge amount of care and attention during cultivation process along with periodic fertilization.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for potassium sulphate in agriculture sector as a fertilizer to improve crop yield and quality.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of potassium sulphate among farmers and agriculturists.
  • Growing adoption of potassium sulphate as an alternative to other fertilizers due to its low environmental impact.
  • Technological advancements in the production of potassium sulphate that has resulted in lower production costs and improved product quality.
