Potassium Permanganate Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Potassium permanganate, also known as permanganate of potash or Condy's crystals, is a salt of K+ and MnO4− ions with the chemical formula KMnO4. It is produced on an industrial level by mixing manganese ore (magnesium dioxide) with a solution of potassium hydroxide and then drying the resulting suspension. It results in odourless, sweet tasting, dark purple crystals which are soluble in water and alcohol. Potassium permanganate has well-diversified applications across various sectors. Potassium permanganate’s preservation properties are utilised in preventing fruits from ripening for up to 4 weeks even at high temperature without the need of refrigeration. It is used to treat and disinfect water and to remove the dissolved iron and hydrogen sulphide. It can also be used for medical purposes such as for cleansing wounds, in treating skin infections, fungal infections and hair dye allergies. During 2009-2016, the global potassium permanganate market grew at a CAGR of around 14%. The demand for potassium permanganate is driven by water and wastewater treatment which account for the majority of its consumption.
