Global Sodium Sulfate Market: Overview
Sodium sulfate is available in two forms in nature, dehydrate and anhydrous. Dehydrate form is produced from mirabilite and is also known as Glauber’s salt. Anhydrous is produced from mineral thenardite. Synthetic sodium sulfate is recovered as a by-product. Some of the industrial processes that recover sodium sulfate are production of rayon, phenol or boric acid, and chromates.
Asia Pacific dominated the sodium sulfate market both in terms of volume and value and is likely to remain dominant during the forecast period with a significant CAGR compare to other regions. China is largest producer of natural sodium sulfate and is also the largest consumer. Almost half of the world’s sodium sulfate is consumed by China. The cost of sodium sulfate in China is comparatively low as compared to that of other exporting countries.
Expansion of end-use industries such as soaps & detergents, kraft pulping, textiles, glass, carpet cleaners is the major factors which is anticipated to drive the sodium sulfate market during the forecast period. The use of sodium sulfate was widely witnessed in soaps & detergents and textiles in most of the regions. Sodium sulfate prevents formation of scum by the molten glass during refining, and also fluxes the glass. The compound also helps in removing imperfections during the blowing and casting processes. These features of sodium sulfate in glass making makes the segment lucrative during the forecast period.
