Rising Demand for Vacuum Salt from Chemical Industry to Boost Sales

Salt is one of the essential components in the production of all kinds of products and solutions. High chemical purity is required for most industrial applications. According to USFDA, 60% of all salt is consumed by the chemical industry. Vacuum salt is one of the purest forms of salt, with highly soluble characteristics, and can be easily mixed with any chemical component.

Low sulfate, bromide, and moisture levels contribute to the high chemical purity of vacuum salt. There is increasing production of chemicals such as fluorinated chemicals, antimicrobials, flame retardants, organic solvents, and certain metals. Thus, players in the vacuum salt market are targeting this industry to obtain high profits.

Preference for Use of Vacuum Salt in Feed Production to Propel Market Growth

Salt is an essential element in creating balanced feed for animals, as they require salt in specific amounts to ensure the proper functioning of their metabolism and essential biological pathways. Conventionally, inexpensive salts such as rock salt and other low-grade salts are used for feed production.

However, recent restrictions regarding the purity of feed ingredients, globally, have made feed manufacturers shift to the use of high-quality feed ingredients for the targeted livestock. Ruminants are the major consumers of salt-based feed, as sodium is essential for high-quality milk production.

This is expected to encourage feed manufacturers to opt for vacuum salt over inexpensive salts in order to gain an advantage over competitors in terms of quality and results.
