Properties and Applications

Sodium chloride represents a white crystalline solid with the chemical formula NaCl. It is commonly referred to as salt, table salt or common salt. It is white in colour, crystalline in appearance, saline in taste and soluble in water.

Based on source, the industry can be divided into:

  • Sea Water
  • Rock Salt
  • Others

It finds end-use in the following industries:

  • Chemical Industry
  • Food Grade Salt
  • Road De-icing
  • Others

The major regions include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.


Market Analysis

Chlorine-alkali products including chlorine, caustic soda, as well as soda ash have increased demand in the chemical industry. As a main source of production of chlorine and sodium hydroxide, salt is commercially used since it is readily available and economical. In a variety of industries, chlorine is used to produce consumer goods including paper, paints and coatings, PVC, plastics and rubber goods, insecticides, soap and beverages, for example for textiles, cosmetics, agrochemicals and chemical products. The Asia Pacific emerging economies like China and India are the main chlorine-alkaline producers and users. Chlorine-alkali use is growing in the chemical sector as the industry for chemicals rises in end-user industries. Salt is used as a flavouring agent and as foods and drinks for preservation. A significant proportion of the sodium chloride market find their use in the food and drink sector. It is the third largest end-use category. Salt is commonly used in pickles and meats as a preservative. The ions present in salt prevent the fungal growth, thereby maintaining for a longer period pickles and processed meat.


Competitive Landscape

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

  • K+S France S.A.S.
  • Cargill, Incorporated
  • Agrosal GmBH
  • Tata Chemicals Ltd.
  • Others
