Sodium chlorite is a salt-based chemical that also features the element chlorine. It has several practical uses and is very similar to sodium chlorate, a common food additive. While not dangerous in small amounts, large doses of sodium chlorite can be dangerous.
In consumption market, North America and China are the mainly consumption regions due to the bigger demand of downstream applications. In 2016, these two regions occupied 69.16% of the global consumption volume in total.
Sodium chlorite has two types, which include liquid sodium chlorite and solid sodium chlorite. With bleaching effect in application process of sodium chlorite, the downstream application industries will need more sodium chlorite. So, sodium chlorite has a huge market potential in the future. In last two years, the production volume of Chinese manufacturers is limited by local environmental standard. Thus, the global production of sodium chlorite decreased.
The major raw materials for sodium chlorite are sodium chlorate, hydrogen peroxide, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, and other auxiliary chemicals. Fluctuations in the price of the upstream product will impact on the production cost of sodium chlorite. The production cost of sodium chlorite is also an important factor which could impact the price of sodium chlorite. The sodium chlorite manufacturers are trying to reduce production cost by developing production method.
Over the next five years, LPI(LP Information) projects that Sodium Chlorite will register a 2.6% CAGR in terms of revenue, reach US$ 230 million by 2023, from US$ 200 million in 2017.
