Rock Salt to Account for Nearly 1 out of 5 Sales in Industrial Salt Market

In a recent market analysis, Fact.MR divulges key insights into the global industrial salt market, covering aspects such as drivers, opportunities, challenges, and restraints. The study covers trends prevailing across segments of the industrial salt market including grade, source, production process, and applications across seven regions.

NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sales of industrial salt are forecast to grow at a steady 4% CAGR, finds Fact.MR in a recent market survey. Increasing demand for industrial salt in various end-use industries such as chemical processing, caustic soda, water treatment, and de-icing will continue augmenting growth of the market.


Driven by this, the industrial salt market size is expected to reach US$ 20.3 Bn by 2031, with total consumption of industrial salt surpassing 455 KT over the forecast period.

Growing adoption of industrial salt in the oil & gas industry for drilling natural resources such as crude oil and natural gas is giving tailwinds to industrial salt sales. Besides this, increasing applications of industrial salt in water treatment driven by water security policies is expected to augment growth of the market in the forthcoming years.

Further, expansion of the chemical industry is expected to bode well for the industrial salt market. Industrial salts are widely adopted in the chemical processing industry for the manufacturing of soda ash, caustic soda, and chlorine. These chemicals are further used in water treatment, laundry, and other applications. Hence, this is anticipated to boost the sales of industrial salt in the chemical sector.
