Industrial Salt Market Set to Cross US$ 19.5 Bn by 2030; Reduced Demand from Oil & Gas Sector during COVID-19 Pandemic to Hurt Market Growth


by Team Fact.MR

Industrial salt is one of the key elements used for oil & gas drilling applications and to maintain the density of the crude oil produced. Growing demand from this sector has significantly assisted the revenue growth of manufacturers channelling industrial salt during the historical period. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, demand has declined, and a majority of manufacturers have shut down their operations across the world. Decline in oil prices too have had an adverse effect on industrial salt prices across regions. Nevertheless, market growth is set to resurrect post 3rd quarter of FY 2020.

The industrial salt market is estimated to be valued at US$ 19.5 Bn in 2030, creating an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 6.3 Bn during the forecast period (2020-2030). The market is anticipated to progress at a decent CAGR of around 4% over the assessed forecast period.
