Global Soda Ash Market - 2019-2026
The Global Soda Ash market was valued at USD xx million in 2017 and is estimated to reach USD xx million by 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2025.
Soda Ash is a commercially manufactured anhydrous sodium carbonate. It is commonly used in the manufacture of glass, paper, rayon, soaps, and detergents.
It is also used as a water softener since carbonate can precipitate the calcium and magnesium ions present in hard water.
Drivers and Restraints
The growth in the end-user industries of Soda Ash and its expanding application base is foreseen to be the major driver boosting the growth of the market during the forecast period.
The market is witnessing an exponential demand from the Glass industry, particularly from the container and flat glass sectors.
Also, the rising demand for soda ash in soaps & detergents industry, especially in the developing regions is expected to strengthen the market further. The increasing demand for natural soda ash due to its low cost benefits will also contribute to the growth of the market.
The increasing competition from substitutes like sodium silicate, caustic soda, etc. can limit the growth of the market in the coming years. Also, the stringent regulations in North America and Europe regarding the synthetic soda ash production will affect most of the key players in the market.
Market Segmentation Analysis
The Global Cyanide Market segments the market by application. Application segment includes Glass, Mining, Soaps & Detergents, Chemicals, Pulp & Paper, and Others.
The Glass segment is the largest segment in this category, and it is also expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.
More than 50% of the global production of soda ash is earmarked for glass production. Soda ash is used to make the most common type of glass, soda-lime-silica glass, generally used in the flat glass (automotive and construction), glass container (food and drink) and many other glass industries.
Dense soda ash is preferred for glass manufacturing. As the construction, automotive and consumer packaged goods industries employ new technical and functional requirements for their glass products, the demand for the high-quality soda ash will continue to grow – now and for the foreseeable future.
