Global Caustic Potash Market to Reach 2.5 Million Tons by 2022

Caustic potash, also known as potassium hydroxide, represents a widely-used inorganic compound with the chemical formula KOH. It is white in colour, odourless, non-flammable as well as non-volatile at room temperature.



The structure of caustic potash consists of an ionic bond between the potassium metal cation and the hydroxyl anion. It is deliquescent, corrosive and highly reactive in nature and absorbs moisture from the air until it is dissolved. Caustic potash is either used as a solid (flakes, crystals or briquettes) or as a solution with varying concentrations. On account of its distinct list of properties, caustic potash finds myriad applications in a number of industries. It is extensively used in consumer products, agro-chemicals and industrial chemicals.
