DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4wdlt6/potassium) has announced the addition of the "Potassium Chloride Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
Potassium chloride (KCl) composed of chlorine and potassium is an odorless metal halide salt having a colorless crystal appearance. It is a naturally occurring mineral which is formed by the evaporation of the ancient sea beds. The compound is also known as Muriate of Potash (MOP) which is generally associated with its use as fertilizers. Potash is the most widely used fertilizer which comes in a variety of colors from red or pink to white depending upon the recovery and mining process used. White potash, also known as soluble potash is majorly used for liquid starter fertilizers. KCl naturally occurs as sylvinites when combined with sodium chloride (NaCl).
Potassium is one of the three major nutrients necessary for plant growth. It serves as a regulator for different processes within the plant. Potassium chloride is widely consumed in the agriculture industry as potash fertilizer. Other applications of KCl include pharmaceuticals, chemical, and food processing. It is also used in treating hypokalemia and as an electrolyte replenisher.
With the growing trend of biofertilizers in the agriculture industry, potash is being increasingly implemented as potash mobilizing biofertilizers for the purpose of enhancing the growth of the plant. According to The International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA), approximately 30 potash expansion projects have been planned by manufacturers between 2013 and 2017.
