The global mineral salts market records a revenue of USD 451.47 million in 2016 and estimated to register a promising CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period, 2018-2023. Asia-Pacific region is expected to account for the major share in the global market.

Market dynamics

The factors driving global mineral salt ingredients market are the multiple health problems caused by deficiency, the increased prevalence of chronic diseases, presence of a large population over 65 years, and rise in awareness about a nutrient and mineral salt ingredients rich diet. There is a recommended daily value of mineral salt ingredients for the general population. The rapid advancements in product offerings is another factor which has a role in the growth of the global mineral salt ingredients market during the forecast period. The restraining element of mineral salt market is the accumulation of ingredients in case of excess consumption that may cause health issues among consumers. 29 European countries have salt reduction initiatives in place. The main motive by these countries is to reduce the intake of sodium but still retain the flavor. This is driving the sodium reduction ingredients market. The principal driver behind the increased production in China has been growing demand from the Chinese chemical industry and, to a lesser extent, from population growth.

Market Segmentation

The product type can segment the global mineral salt ingredients market into micro mineral salt ingredients and macro mineral salt ingredients like Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Calcium, Phosphorus, and Magnesium. By application, the market is into Dairy products, Infant formula, Functional Food, Cosmetics and personal care, Pharmaceuticals, Agriculture, and Others. Potassium chloride (KCl) is the most preferred ingredient type in the mineral salts segment, as the performance of this ingredient is similar to that of normal salt (NaCl).

The market share of Macro Mineral salt ingredients segment is expected to be the highest, followed by the Micro Mineral salt ingredients segment over the forecast period. Among the application segments, the functional food sector is expected to be having the highest revenue.

Regional Analysis

The Asia- Pacific market has been estimated to dominate the global mineral salt ingredients market, accounting for the maximum revenue share of the market. Europe holds the next major revenue share of the global mineral salt ingredients market. South America is an emerging market with an estimate of 4.8% CAGR, followed by the North America market, due to an emerging trend of the adoption of functional foods as a rich source of mineral salt ingredients. Calcium is the most important mineral in the US. Americans and Japanese have cases of calcium deficiency, which implies the importance of mineral salt ingredients market in the region. In Europe, the market is smaller than in the U.S. partly because of a heavy consumption of dairy products but also due to regulation factors.
