Global Sodium Hydrosulfite Market 2017-2021
About Sodium Hydrosulfite
Sodium hydrosulfite (chemical formula: NaHS) is a free-flowing, dry, colorless available in a variety of grades with different concentration of sodium hydrosulfite. It is also known as sodium dithionite. The chemical synthesis of sodium hydrosulfite is majorly carried out through neutralization reaction using hydrogen sulfide and sodium hydroxide as starting materials. Industrial production of sodium hydrosulfite is carried out through reaction of sodium bisulfite blended with zinc, or by the reaction of sulfur dioxide on sodium amalgam.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global sodium hydrosulfite market to grow at a CAGR of 4.05% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global sodium hydrosulfite market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Sodium Hydrosulfite Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global sodium hydrosulfite market: AZ Chemicals, BASF, Guangdong ZhongCheng Chemicals, JINHE GROUP, and MITSUBISHI GAS CHEMICAL.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alfa Chemistry, BrüggemannGruppe, Chemtrade Logistics, Esseco Group, Finetech Industry, Montgomery Chemicals, Globe Chemicals, Royce, TCP, TCI Chemicals, and Triveni Interchem.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is use of sodium hydrosulfite in cosmetics. Major vendors have increased their R&D activities for new applications of sodium hydrosulfite in segments such as cosmetics and food additive. Sodium hydrosulfite is efficiently used as a reducing agent due to which it could be used in the cosmetics sector.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand from paper and pulp industry. Sodium hydrosulfite is extensively used as bleaching agent in paper and pulp industry. It helps in decreasing the yellow color (due presence of cellulose in the pulp) in the paper. It also helps in increasing the brightness of the paper. It brightens the paper through reductive reactions with pulp chromophores by reducing the carbonyl and alcohol functional groups. Acidic dyes and direct dyes are extensively used in pulp and paper industry.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is growing digitalization. Digitization has a significant impact on the pulp and paper industry. It has reduced paper use and is threatening the traditional market for newsprint and office paper. Major companies and organizations are moving towards digitization. Majority of the papers users prefer a soft copy or electronic form of the document such as e-bills, e-tenders, e-financing statements and others. Many governments are promoting digitization and eliminating the use of paper as efforts to save trees.
