Central & Latin America to Continue to be the Major Exporters of Industrial Salt

As per a report available on XploreMR, the global industrial salt market is expected to get into the exponential growth curve between 2020 and 2030.

The global industrial salt market is driven by direct usage of industrial salt in de-icing as well as farming purposes, along with indirect uses like derivation of caustic soda and chlorine. Another major application is that in “chlor-alkali” sector, as there is no economic substitute available as of now.

Something Miscellaneous

Technological innovations are making a foray into the industrial salt market in the form of vacuum pan technology (used for producing high purity salt). However, the adoption rate is lower due to industries preferring low-cost manufacturing techniques like solution mining, conventional mining, and solar evaporation.

There are solar evaporation operations/deposits with varying production capacities in nearly every country all over the world. The imports usually happen by landlocked countries. Also, it needs to be noted that certain landlocked African countries are blessed with “rock salt deposits” in the form of source.

The industrial salt market is regulated by mining regulations like the “Mine Health and Safety Act” pertaining to safety and health of miners along with regulations put into practice by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). The respective governments also need to approve the activities by manufacturers.

The major players make use of several transport carriers inclusive of waterways, budget-friendly railway lines, and logistics services of their own for improving on supply chain efficiency.

The basic source of “industrial salt” is “brine”. It comes from huge saline water bodies or solution mining. As mining activities are subject to the ever-increasing restrictions, use of brine is being encouraged. However, the point to note over here is that processing cost regarding production of crystals from brine is high due to growth in energy consumption for vaporizing brine. So, as of now, this technique of vaporization is used only in high-purity applications.

Solar salt does account for more than 40% of the overall market share due to high demand in agriculture and water treatment. However, as climatic conditions govern the harvest, the growth of the market could get hampered. Rock salt is basically used for de-icing. Special purity salt, mini cube, and pellet are produced by making use of vacuum pan technique and do find their applications in water softening, circuit board manufacturing, medical industry, food plants, and hospitals.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of Covid-19 has disrupted the process of obtaining industrial salt due to partial/total lockdowns being inflicted all across. The situation is expected to return to normalcy somewhere in mid-2021 when Covid-19 vaccine is expected to hit the market.

Region-wise Analysis

The US and China collectively account for more than half of the market share. The consumption of industrial salt is expected to increase all the more in the forecast period due to rising industrialization all across the Asia-Pacific. The US has always been the frontrunner in this market, as de-icing is imperative over there due to extreme weather.

Central & Latin America are rich with respect to natural deposits. Chile and Brazil dominate with respect to production as well as consumption. They do export industrial salt in huge quantities to Europe and North America. Industrial diversification is leading to the growth in MEA.

Competitive Landscape

The key players in the industrial salt market include Morton Salt, Compass Mineral, and K+S Group. The first two players serve the food processing and pharmaceutical sector whereas the third one helps in de-icing.
