It’s being expected that by 2028, the Sodium Hypochlorite market cap will hit US$ 347 Mn at a CAGR growth of about 5.4%.
Sodium hypochlorite is yellowish, clear compound which has chemical formula NaOCI with a peculiar odor. Generally it is produced in two ways, first being water containing dissolved salts and soft water is electrolyzed, to produce sodium hypochlorite solution in water. In the second method, chlorine gas is added to caustic soda, thus creating sodium hypochlorite solution along with salt and water. These compounds are very easy to handle and can be easily transported.
The sodium hypochlorite market growth is owing to its increased usage in water treatment industry due to its anti-microbial features. It is widely used as bleaching agent, traditionally it was popularly used as effective bleaching agent for cotton as a stain remover from clothes. Global Sodium Hypochlorite market size includes various other industries like chemical, waste disposal, disinfectant, paint and agriculture among others. The water treatment chemicals industry is experiencing a high growth in requirement, due to increased regulatory rules by municipal authorities for water treatment and management of industrial waste water. However, owing to large rate of chlorine evaporation, it is often dangerous and corrosive compound. On heating sodium hypochlorite disintegrates or when in contact with certain metals, poisonous gases, sunlight and acids.
Sodium hypochlorite market analysis indicate growth owing to rapid growth in end-user segments such as paints, chemicals, water treatment, and agriculture. Sodium hypochlorite is main ingredient as laundry bleach in detergents for paper, textiles and household applications. In petrochemical industry, sodium hypochlorite is used as refining of the product.
Segmentation of global Sodium Hypochlorite market size is product type, end-user and region. Segmentation on product type is sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite, potassium hypochlorite and Lithium hypochlorite. Sodium hypochlorite is further classified as surface purification, Bleaching, odor removal, and water disinfection. Sodium hypochlorite is widely used as a disinfectant in the health segment and is the major contributor in the sodium hypochlorite market. Based on the end-user it is divided as domestic uses, healthcare, laundry, and others. Among the end-user segments, healthcare contributes the maximum share to sodium hypochlorite market.
