End – use Industry – Segment Analysis
Waste water treatment sector has been the primary market for Sodium Hypochlorite for many years with a CAGR of 4.1%. Sodium hypochlorite, due to its anti-microbial properties and chlorinating agent, is widely used in water treatments as a biocide. It is also used in treating cyanide contamination of industrial wastewater. The water treatment chemical industry is seeing a rapid increase in demand as a result of regulatory pressure to properly manage waste water released into water bodies from industrial and municipal waste water. In addition, this has helped the growth of chemicals like sodium hypochlorite for treating waste water.
Geography – Segment Analysis
APAC dominated the Sodium Hypochlorite Market with a share of more than 35%, followed by North America and Europe. The Asia Pacific is the leading consumer of sodium hypochlorite for its large population with large sale use of household bleaching products Major industrial economies including China, India, Japan, and South Korea, are sodium hypochlorite’s major consumers for use in wastewater treatment, household products and chemical industries. Across Asia, China and India are two of the most populous countries. Both are rapidly increasing, and the general population is witnessing an increase in disposable income. This will fuel household product market growth, including detergent and bleach, which will in turn increase demand for sodium hypochlorite in the country.
Drivers – Sodium Hypochlorite Market
- The rise in industrial waste water and growing water contamination will drive the market growth
The growing urbanization and industrialization is leading to increase in industrial wastewater production and driving the global Sodium Hypochlorite market. Projections for future show that urbanization is increasing due to a gradual shift of human population to urban areas from the rural areas. According to United Nations, by 2050, 2.5 billion more people would be added to urban areas in which 90% population increase in urban areas would be contributed by Asia and Africa. Increasing urbanization is leading to increased industrialization, which is further increasing the waste water production as well as water contamination.
Challenges – Sodium Hypochlorite Market
Instability and hazardous nature of the sodium hypochlorite can hinder market growth due to its strong oxidizing properties.
