Sodium chlorate is an inorganic compound which is manufactured through the electrolysis of NaCl (brine). A strong oxidising agent, it is an odourless pale yellow to white crystalline solid which is readily soluble in water. Currently, the most important and extensive use of sodium chlorate is in the production of chlorine dioxide which is used as a bleaching agent in the production of bleached pulp for paper. Other uses of sodium chlorate are in the production of chlorates of other metals, in uranium mining, for weed control and as an agricultural herbicide.

This new report titled “Sodium Chlorate Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023” finds that the environmental legislation that phased out the use of elemental chlorine as a bleaching agent in the production of bleached pulp has chiefly benefited the sodium chlorate industry. According to the report, the global sodium chlorate market has grown at a CAGR of around 4% during 2010-2017. In 2010, the global production volumes of sodium chlorate experienced a decline due to the global financial crisis, the market values, on the other hand, increased in the same period as a result of a net price increase. Both volume and values, however, have exhibited continuous growth since 2011. The report further provides a comprehensive insight into the industry including its market break-up by region, market breakup by end-uses, value chain analysis, import and export trends, key players and market outlook. The report also gives an insight into the manufacturing process of sodium chlorate covering key success and risk factors for manufacturers, manufacturing process flow, the reactions involved, raw materials and their requirements, etc.

The report has segmented the global sodium chlorate market on the basis of end-use industries. At present, the pulp and bleaching industry accounts for the majority of the sodium chlorate demand. Other applications of sodium chlorate include its usage as an intermediate in the production of the chlorates of other metals; in leather tanning, manufacturing of dyes, bleaching of textiles, in the production of oxygen rescue breathing apparatus, etc.

The report has also provided the market analysis based on key regions and finds that Canada currently represents the largest producer followed by the United States, China, Finland and Brazil. Analysing the export data, the report finds that Canada is the world’s largest exporter of sodium chlorate. Other major exporting countries include China and the United States.
