What are the Key Trends in the Market for Vacuum Salt?

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 sulphate, 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.

“Expanding Production of Chlor-alkali Products in South Asia and East Asia”

The chemical industry is the key consumer of salt. This industry transforms salt primarily into chlorine, caustic soda, and soda ash. Asia is the largest producer of chlor-alkali products, which include chlorine and caustic soda. China accounts for around 46% in the global caustic soda market. India is also the leading producer of chlor-alkali products. Therefore, with an increase in the production of caustic soda, there is ultimately an increase in the consumption of vacuum salt in the region.

  • According to International Congress and Convention Association(ICCA) and Oxford Economics, the economic value of chemical industry was around 5.7 trillion by 2019, in which Asia Pacific holds half of the share in the global chemical market with a healthy growth rate.

“Manufacturers to Target Processed and Preserved Meat Products Industry”

The global beef and veal production market was anticipated to witness a growth of around 2% in 2018, to reach 62.6 million tons, and Brazil, along with India, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, is expected to contribute half of this growth to the global market. Brazil and India are among the top four countries, which are expected to support the increase of global exports of beef and veal.

Brazil and India are the leading producers of beef and veal, and are among the dominant countries that export meat. This export is expected to increase in the foreseeable future. To export meat products, it becomes necessary to ensure proper preservation of meat. Salt creates an anti-microbial environment for processed meat products and also dehydrates these products. Since vacuum salt is the purest form of salt, which meets the preserving requirements with utmost perfection.

“Seasonality of de-icing Products to Hinder Market Growth”

The de-icing sector is predominantly controlled by rock salt or mined salt globally, due to its cheaper price and ease of availability. The stock of rock salt falls short only in seasons of heavy snowfall, and low-grade vacuum salt is used for de-icing. These heavy snowfall seasons are highly unstable, and global warming has caused these seasons to be very rare and volatile. This is expected to be a barrier to the growth of the vacuum salt market, as the demand from the de-icing sector is expected to be highly volatile over the forecast period.
