Market Overview:

The global sodium chloride market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for sodium chloride from various applications such as chemical intermediate, deicing, flavoring agent, food preservative, water treatment and animal feed additive. In terms of type, solar salt is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its growing demand from water treatment and agricultural applications. North America is expected to dominate the global sodium chloride market during the forecast period owing to high production of salt in countries such as U.S.

Global Sodium Chloride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Sodium chloride is a mineral that is found in the body. It helps to maintain the balance of fluids inside and outside of cells. It also helps to keep blood pressure normal and muscles working properly.

Solar Salt:

Solar salt is a by-product obtained during the evaporation of water from a salt solution. It consists of ionic components such as sodium and chlorine along with an amorphous solid residue. The product has high demand in the agriculture industry owing to its ability to increase the pH level of soil, which in turn enhances plant growth.

The product also finds application in wastewater treatment plants where it is used for de-icing.

Rock Salt:

Rock salt is a type of halite, which is mined from large underground deposits. It has high content of sodium and chloride. Rock salt is used in the production of chlorine and caustic soda, owing to its high sodium content.

Application Insights:

The chemical intermediate application segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The product is extensively used as a chemical intermediate in various industrial processes, including paper bleaching, caustic soda production, and chlorine manufacturing.

In terms of volume, the water treatment application segment was valued at USD 575.0 million in 2017 owing to rising demand from various end-use industries including pharmaceuticals and food processing across different regions of the world such as North America; Europe; Asia Pacific; Latin America; Middle East & Africa. Sodium chloride plays an important role as a flavor enhancer in several applications such as cheese making, meat seasoning & curing products like bacon among others which are likely to propel its demand globally over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific sodium chloride market dominated 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 product demand from various end-use industries including chemical, food, water treatment, and deicing. In addition, increasing population coupled with rising disposable income levels has resulted in increased consumer spending on household products including food additives such as flavor enhancers and preservatives which will drive demand further.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to high consumption volumes generated by rapidly growing end-use industries such as chemicals & petrochemicals along with an increase in per capita income levels leading to higher spending capacity among consumers resulting in greater penetration for industrial applications wherein sodium chloride finds application other than deicing or flavoring agent where it acts as an intermediate ingredient for production of various chemicals such as fertilizers, plastics etc.).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the food and beverage industry as a flavor enhancer and preservative.
  • Growing use of sodium chloride in personal care products for its cleansing and antiseptic properties.
  • Rising demand for salt substitutes as consumers become more health conscious.
  • Increasing application of sodium chloride in water treatment plants to improve water quality.
  • Growing popularity of saline nasal sprays as a means to relieve congestion and allergies
