Sodium Sulfide Market

Global Market Study on Sodium Sulfide: Leather Processing Application Segment Expected to Witness Significant Value and Volume Growth Between 2016 and 2024

Sodium Sulfide Market Segmented By Regular Grade, High Purity Grade Product in Leather Processing, Pulp & Paper, Chemical Processing, Water Treatment, Ore Processing

Steady growth in leather production to benefit the global sodium sulfide market

A key application of sodium sulfide is in the leather and tanning industry. Sodium sulfide is primarily used as a dehairing agent during the process of pre-tanning. Dehairing is the first step while manufacturing leather and it is concerned with depilating animal hides with the help of specific chemicals.

Sodium sulfide and lime based dehairing is widely deployed across diverse geographical regions involved in leather production as it is comparatively more efficient, efficacious and effective when compared to other alternatives available.

A steady growth in global leather production can be safely expected during the course of the forecast period. Developing countries in the APAC region such as China, India, and Vietnam along with African nations such as Kenya, Morocco and Ethiopia should record strong growth in leather production over the course of the eight year study. This should directly benefit the sodium sulfide market in terms of positive growth.

Ore processing is another large segment in the global sodium sulfide market

Sodium sulfide finds widespread application in ore processing as it is used to produce ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (magnesium, copper, zinc, lead) metals particularly during the process of ore flotation. Sodium sulfide is especially important in copper mineral flotation.

The manufacturing and construction industry in North America as well as Asia Pacific should fuel the demand for copper in the next decade or so. The production of copper in countries such as Peru, Chile, China and the U.S. should gain momentum during this time and drive demand for chemicals and reagents concerned with ore processing. Sodium sulfide in ore processing should witness stable growth over the period 2016-2024.

Consumption of ore processing was pegged at 235 KT in the year 2015. A steady Y-o-Y growth can safely be assumed during the course of the forecast period, culminating in the consumption of more than 300 KT by the end of the year 2024. Ore processing is another important application segment in the global sodium sulfide market and is estimated to reach a market value in excess of US$ 160 Mn in 2024.

Rising consumption of sodium sulfide in the ore processing industry due to its excellent characteristics is anticipated to be the driving force in the global sodium sulfide market. Ore processing is forecast to show an incremental dollar opportunity of more than US$ 35 Mn from the period 2016-2024. The key regions that have significant demand for sodium sulfide in the ore processing segment are Eastern Europe and Latin America.
