Market Analysis

Caustic potash is widely used as a stabilizer, thickener, as well as pH adjuster in the food and beverage industries to extend product shelf-life. Since it is a versatile purifier it is often used to manufacture liquid soaps, lotions, shampoos as well as hair sprays. Potassium hydroxide soap is more water soluble and is considered safer for the environment compared to sodium hydroxide. For the preparation of clinical specimens for fungal microscopy and fungal elements in the hairs, skin, clots, and vaginal secretions potassium hydroxide (COH) is also commonly used. Accordingly, the effectiveness and tolerance of wart treatment have been investigated. In addition, demand for caustic potash is on the rise in agriculture, as KOH fertilizers are commonly used to improve crop yield and increase overall productivity.

 

Competitive Landscape

The report analyses the following key players in the global caustic potash market, looking into their capacity, competitive landscape, and latest developments like mergers and acquisitions, expansions of capacity, and plant turnarounds:

  • Erco Worldwide
  • Occidental Chemical Corporation
  • Tessenderlo Group
  • Others
