Report ID: GMI3917
Sodium Carbonate Market size shall register a significant growth during the forecast time period owing to its wide usage in glass, paper and detergent industries. Increasing demand for paper for various usage in packaging and carry bags.
Sodium carbonate also known as soda ash and washing soda is an inorganic white colored salt soluble in water. It is found naturally or produced by Solvay process through natural salt (sodium chloride) accompanied with ammonia and limestone. It is used as an inexpensive, weaker and safer substitute of sodium hydroxide owing to its mild alkali nature.
Rising demand of glass owing to increased applications in building & construction and automobile industries may drive the market size of glass, thereby stimulating the sodium carbonate market demand. Global glass market size may surpass USD 150 billion by 2025. The product is used in glass manufacturing as it serves as a flux for silica, which may foster the product growth.
Growing demand for paper in packaging, carry bags, printing and notebooks may drive the overall demand of sodium carbonate. Global paper market size may achieve a value at over USD 340 million by 2025. The product is used to separate cellulose from plant materials to make paper pulp, thereby accelerating the sodium carbonate market demand.
Rising demand of detergents and soaps owing to increasing population and its increasing demand from various industries including textile, hotel, restaurant and others may the product demand. Global demand for detergent and washing powder was accounted at over USD 140 billion in year 2018. Sodium carbonate is used as an additive in detergents owing to its water softening property, preventing detergent to bond with strong salts thereby accelerating the sodium carbonate market growth.
Sodium carbonate is used to treat slightly acidic water as it increases the pH level to neutral. It is also used to soften hard water as it removes magnesium and calcium ions by converting them into insoluble salts. Global water treatment chemicals size shall account at over USD 55 billion by the year 2022. Rising demand for water treatment chemicals owing to lack of pure water may drive the overall sodium carbonate market share.
North America sodium carbonate market driven by the U.S., Mexico and Canada shall register a substantial growth during foreseeable timeframe. Growth of detergent industry owing to rising demand of durable and more effective cleansing agents may stimulate the market growth. U.S. detergent powder was valued at over USD 25 billion in 2018. Sodium carbonate is used as an additive in detergents and soaps to improve their cleansing properties. It also softens the hard water averting detergent to make bond with magnesium and calcium ions thereby stimulating the regional sodium carbonate market size.
Europe led by Italy, Spain, France, UK and Germany sodium carbonate market shall see a significant growth by the year 2025. Rising demand for glass owing to its increased application in commercial, residential buildings and packaging industries may steer the product demand. European packaging industry may grow at over USD 19 billion by the end of forecast timeframe. Sodium carbonate is used along with lime to lowers down the glass transition temperature making it easier to mold and shape at slightly low temperature thereby boosting the regional product growth.
Asia Pacific steered by India, Japan and China sodium carbonate market size may see a surge during the forecast timeframe. Rising demand for paper pulp owing to increasing application in writing pad, carry bags and corrugated cardboard and other packaging uses may propel the product growth. India paper industry was valued at over 7 billion in 2018. Sodium carbonate solution is used in extraction of paper pulp, it is used to separate cellulose fibers from plant materials, thus boosting the regional product demand.
Global sodium carbonate market is highly fragmented owing to presence of large number of manufacturers. Companies like Merck, Ciner Resources Corporation, CIECH, Genesis Alkali, Tata chemicals, Solvay chemicals, GHCL, Nilkanth organics and Nirma are the key market players.
