Sodium Chlorate Market to Expand 1.4X by 2030; Reduced Demand from Allied Industries Due to COVID-19 Pandemic Impeding Market Growth


by Team Fact.MR

The global sodium chlorate market is forecast to witness a moderate growth rate of 3.7% over the forecast period of 2020-2030. Rise in demand for sodium chlorate can largely be attributed to growth of the chemical and paper & pulp industry. Sodium chlorate is extensively utilized as a bleaching agent in the paper & pulp industry. Moreover, its utilization in the chemical industry as a low-cost oxidizing agent is common. Price fluctuations in recent times have been observed in the 2nd quarter of FY2020, owing to reduced activities across industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All in all, the market is set to show positive signs of growth by the end of the second quarter of FY2020.
