On the basis of its application, the industrial salt market is categorized into following segments:

  • Chemical Processing
  • Road De-icing
  • Water Softening
  • Agriculture
  • Others (Animal Feed, etc.)

Industrial Salts Market

Chemical processing accounted for major share of global industrial salt market in 2015. The chemical industry was the major consumer of industrial salts and accounted for more than 43% of total salt sales. The caustic soda and chlorine manufacturing sector were the major consumers in the chemical industry. Road de-icing accounted for second largest share of global industrial salt market in 2016 and is expected to increase in the near future. The use of salt as a de-icing agent has been common since 1960’s in the areas where ice or snow is a seasonal roadway safety hazard. Highway bridge and automobile corrosion and ecosystem changes caused by the de-icing salts are well documented and hence salt is widely used in the regions of seasonal ice and snowfall. Regions such as North America and Europe widely use de-icing salts to provide safe environment conditions during the winter season in the regions. Hence, salt has high demand as a de-icing agent. Industrial salts have applications in wide range of end-user industries. Other applications of industrial salts such as water softening, agriculture and others that include animal feed and food processing, experienced steady growth but are projected to increase during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.

On the basis of geography, the global industrial salt market is segmented into following categories,

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • France
    • Germany
    • UK
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • India
    • Japan
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Middle East & Africa
    • South Africa
    • Saudi Arabia
    • Rest of Middle East & Africa
  • Latin America

Industrial Salts Market

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of global industrial salt market in 2015. It accounted for more than 38% share of global industrial salt market and is expected to increase in the near future. China and India are the major consumers of industrial salt in the region. Increasing production of chloralkali chemicals in the region is the major factor driving the growth of global industrial salt in Asia Pacific. Moreover, growing chemical industry in the region is also one among the factors contributing to the growth of global industrial salt market in the region. North America followed Asia Pacific in terms of growth and is expected to increase in the near future. Rising demand for industrial salt as de-icing agent is the boosting growth of industrial salt in the region. Europe is also projected to fuel demand for industrial salts, as it is widely used as a de-icing agent for removal of snow and ice from the highways and roadways to prevent accidents. Other regions such as Middle East & Africa and Latin America are also projected to boost market demand for industrial salt during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.
