Global Glauber’s Salt Market 2017-2021

About Glauber’s Salt

Glauber's salt is the common name for sodium sulfate decahydrate that has a chemical formula of (Na2SO4).10H2O. It is named after Johann Rudolf Glauber, a German-Dutch chemist, who discovered it in the 16th century. It (Glauber's salt) appears as white-colored or colorless monoclinic crystals that undergo the process of efflorescence on exposure to dry air and form powder anhydrous sodium sulfate. Sodium sulfate is an inorganic compound (Na2SO4) that is obtained from natural sources and also as a byproduct of chemical reactions.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global glauber’s salt market to grow at a CAGR of 1.11% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Glauber’s Salt Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global glauber’s salt market: XinLi Chemical, Alkim Alkali Kimya, MINERA DE SANTA MARTA, LENZING, Jiangsu Jingshen Salt & Chemical Industry Co., Sichuan Xinxing Chemical, JSC Kuchuksulphate, and Sichuan Meishan Tianhe Chemical Co.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adisseo, AKO KASEI CO., American Elements, Birla Cellulose, Borden & Remington Corp., Chengdu Sanlian Tianquan Chemical Industry Co., Cooper Natural Resources, CORDENKA, ECOBAT Technologies, Elementis plc, GFS Chemicals, Grupo Industrial Crimidesa, Mil-Spec Industries, Nippon Chemical Industrial CO., Noah Technologies Corporation, Searles Valley Minerals, SHIKOKU CHEMICALS CORPORATION, Si Chuan Hongya Qing Yi Jiang Chemical CO., SULQUISA, and TUFAIL GROUP.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of sodium ion batteries (SIBs). Lithium-ion batteries are popular and are used in household electronic items. These batteries are lightweight, rechargeable, and provide high energy density to devices. They are used in portable devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, digital cameras, and electronic cigarettes. They are used in power tools such as a cordless drill, sanders, and electric vehicles (EVs) as well. They are used in aerospace and military, applications (in radio-controlled models and model aircraft).”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High demand for sodium sulfate in APAC. APAC is the major consumer and producer of sodium sulfate. The region consists of many developing economies. Factors such as rising demand for soaps, detergents, paper, and textiles drive the growth of the market in the region. It is estimated to account for 72.51% of the incremental growth in the global Glauber's salt market during 2016-2021. China is the leading producer and consumer of sodium sulfate in APAC, and it is also the largest producer and consumer of sodium sulfate in the world.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Decline in demand for powder detergents. The global detergent market is exhibiting significant growth. Detergents are available in the form of soap, powder, and liquid. Consumers growing use of detergent soaps and powder is witnessed over the past decade. However, technological advances have led to the replacement of powder detergents by liquid detergents, which, in turn, pose a challenge to the global glauber salt market. Unlike soaps and powder detergents, they (liquid detergents) do not require sodium sulfate.
