Sodium chloride is also commonly known as rock salt/table salt and they are mostly produced by the evaporation of seawater.

Sodium Chloride Market size is forecast to reach US$33.7 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 3.2% during 2022-2027. Ammonium chloride is a white crystalline salt that is highly soluble in water used in fertilizers and flavoring agents. Salt is one of the major ingredients consumed by human beings in daily life through food. They are used to enhance food taste and preserve food from bacteria and fungus. The growing demand for sodium chloride from various industries such as food, chemical, agriculture, and pharmaceuticals among others is driving the market during the forecast period. Caustic soda is mostly produced by the electrolysis of a sodium chloride solution using mercury, diaphragm, or ion-exchange cellsThe COVID-19 pandemic is impacting different industries; one of the few industries that were primarily hit to some extent was the salt industry. The demand for salt among end-use industries is low during the covid-19 crises which are further impacted the sodium chloride market. The delay in salt production activities across the globe impacted the market growth for sodium chloride during covid-19 This represents the Sodium Chloride Market  Industry Outlook. The Sodium Chloride Market report by IndustryARC covers complete analysis of the market, its major segments, growth factors, trends, drivers and challengers, key players and more.

Market Drivers and Challenges:


1.The growing population along with the growing need for food preservatives is supporting the growth of sodium chloride during the forecast period. Sodium chloride is widely used to preserve foods for thousands of years and it enhances the taste of food. Salt helps to prevent spoilage and helps to keep foods fresh and tasty. Salt is also used in fermenting processes for foods like sauerkraut, pickles, and kefir among others.

2. Sodium chloride is the most commonly used de-icer across Minnesota, the United States, and other cold countries. Sodium chloride helps to melt the ice on roads and prevent accidents, collisions among vehicles during the winter season. 

3. The availability of alternative solutions such as potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, calcium chloride, magnesium sulfate, magnesium chloride, to sodium chloride is restraining the market growth during the forecast period. Calcium chloride is also preferred for deicing activities in cold countries. Sodium chloride has some disadvantages such as damaged concrete, asphalt, stone, and brick, when used over long periods of time and whereas calcium chloride, has less damage to pavements than sodium chloride.
