Executive Summary

Sodium sulfate was discovered by Johann Rudolph Glauber. Sodium sulfate is neutral and does not hydrolyze in water. The solubility of sodium sulfate increases sharply with temperature and achieve maximum solubility at around 33°C. The anhydrous salt readily adsorbs moisture in air to give the efflorescence decahydrate crystals. It occurs naturally in the form of mirabilite and thernadite. The thernadite is usually deposited as an evaporation product near playas and salt lakes. It is also produced industrially by the reaction of magnesium sulfate and sodium chloride in solution followed by crystallization. It is used as a raw material for production of various products in industries such as: detergents, glass, paper and textile industry. It is also used as an ingredient of stock foods and remedies, in manufacturing of inks, in tanning of leather and in the manufacture of synthetic sponges.

The global sodium sulfate production capacity is largely governed by China followed by Spain. Spain is the largest producer in Europe, followed by Turkey. The U.S. and Russia are the other largest sodium sulfate producers.

European sodium sulfate market also plays vital role in the global sodium sulfate market as Europe also has significant share in the global production capacity. In Europe, detergent industry is the largest consumer of sodium sulfate followed by chemical industry, glass industry, textile industry and paper industry.
The major global players in the sodium sulfate market are Hongya Qing Yi Jiang, Hunan Xinli, Nafine Group, Jiangsu Yinzhu and China Lumena headquartered in China along with Alkim Alkali Kimya headquartered in Turkey, Industrias Penoles headquartered in Mexico and Nippon Chemical Industrial Co. Ltd headquartered in Japan.
