DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Sodium Chloride Market - Segmented into Grade, Application and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Sodium Chloride (NaCl), an ionic compound, is the major reason for salinity of sea water. Evaporation of sea water and mining of salt halites are the two major methods used, in the mass production of common salt. Sodium Chloride, as a chemical intermediate, is used in the production of a variety of chemicals. Industries, using this property of Sodium Chloride, are Chlor-alkali industry and Soda ash industry.
Apart from the above mentioned end user applications, it is also used in medicine, pharmaceutical, food and agriculture industries. Further, different grades of sodium chloride are produced to support its vast end users.
The sodium chloride market is driven by the increasing demand for NaCl as a chemical reagent and growing demand for pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride in North America and Europe. Some of the other factors that act as market driver are the increasing demand and consumption of preserved food items. The packaged food items are also eyeing a surge in the future and this can propel the growth of the sodium chloride industry.
Major market restraint is the impact of sodium chloride on the water quality. This impact on environment has become a great concern as wildlife, vegetation and aquatic life are being affected, due to the chloride discharge into the water bodies.
