According to IMARC Group’s recently published report titled “Caustic Potash Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the global caustic potash market has grown at a CAGR of 3% during 2009-2016, reaching a volume of around 2 Million Tons in 2016. Caustic potash, also called potassium hydroxide, is an inorganic alkaline compound with the chemical formula KOH. It is white in colour, odourless, deliquescent, corrosive, highly reactive in nature, non-flammable and non-volatile at room temperature.
Caustic potash is manufactured industrially by the electrolysis of potassium chloride and water solution. Being a strong alkali, caustic potash is an important ingredient in the manufacturing process of a number of industrial chemicals including potassium chloride, detergents, fertilizers, etc. The major growth-inducing factor which has influenced its market is the expanding use of caustic potash infertilizers and household products. The global caustic potash market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5% during 2017-2022, reaching a volume of more than 2.3 Million Tons by 2022.
Highlights of the Global Caustic Potash Market:
- Caustic potash is used in the manufacturing process of a number of industrial chemicals.
- The potassium carbonate manufacturing industry represents the biggest end-use segment.
