Sodium chloride is commonly known as salt. It is one of the most abundant minerals on Earth occurring in crystal form. It is used in large quantities across various industrial and consumer applications such as chemicals, textiles, plastics, personal care, and food & beverages. According to the publisher, the global market for sodium chloride is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period considerably. The major factors responsible for the global sodium chloride market's growth are the increasing demand for Chlor-alkali products in the chemical industry and its easy availability. The growing demand for packed food also drives the market. However, the low-profit margin is expected to restrain the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the largest market for global sodium chloride due to increased refining activities and production from chemical industries. Furthermore, China and India hold up the major share for the global sodium chloride market. Moreover, the refining activities in these countries will further drive the studied market.

Deicing is expected to drive the market due to its high usage in removing snow, ice, or frost from a surface. Adding to this large rock salt-producing countries such as Canada, Germany, and the United States tend to have more deicing needs. According to USGS, the application of road salt in the United States has tripled since a few years, which is expected to drive the market further.

The global sodium chloride market is partially consolidated. Major players in the market were found to be Cargill Incorporated, Tata Chemicals Limited, Cheetham Salt, K+S Aktiengesellschaft, and Compass Minerals, among others.

In July 2019, China CAMC Engineering and Ghana's LaLoi Industrial Holdings penned a saline-alkali project deal worth USD 295 million. CAMC Engineering will build a salt plant with an annual output of 250,000 tons and a Chlor-alkali one with 21,000 tons yearly under the 32-month contract. Moreover, in February 2020, Researchers at the University of Alberta have developed a virus-killing salt coating designed to improve the surgical masks' effectiveness to prevent the spread of pathogens like influenza or the new coronavirus.
