Sodium Hydrosulfite Market size will likely surpass USD 1.4 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Significant development in the global textiles industry will propel the sodium hydrosulfite market in the forecast period owing to its extensive use as a bleaching agent in wool, cotton, and nylon. The product finds application as a dyeing auxiliary in vat dyeing and reduction clearing of disperse dyes. The global textiles market demand was over 90 million tons in 2016 and will likely reach 130 million tons by 2024. Increasing income level of consumers in emerging economies and increasing sales of apparels and footwears through e-commerce portals will steer the demand for textiles in the coming years. This will augment the sodium hydrosulfite market growth till 2024.
Product demand as a reducing agent in the synthesis of kaolin and metakaolin has been rising at fast rate and will provide new opportunities for the sodium hydrosulfite market to grow. It is used for enhancing the brightness of kaolin which is used to manufacture paper, ceramics, paints & coatings, fiberglass, plastics, rubber, and cement. Although the demand for the product in this application is low, high growth in kaolin and metakaolin manufacturing industry will likely boost the sodium hydrosulfite market in the future.
Sodium hydrosulfite is a flammable solid with a high chance of combustion in presence of open flames and sparks. When in contact with moisture or air, the substance heats spontaneously and may ignite and its decomposition releases toxic gases. It also has a possibility of ignition in presence of combustible materials or oxidizing agents. Exposure to the substance may cause irritation in eyes, skin, and the respiratory tract. These factors create hurdles in the handling, storing and transportation of the product and may hamper the global sodium hydrosulfite market development as end-user will look for other safer substitutes of the product.
