Sodium Chlorate Market
Sodium Chlorate Market By Form (Crystalline, Amorphous), By Application (Bleaching Agents, Herbicide, Oxidizing Agents), By End-use Industry (Paper & Pulp Industry, Chemical Industry, Mining Industry), By Region - Global Mraket Forecast 2020-2030
Global Sodium Chlorate Market Report Insights
The global sodium chlorate market size has witnessed a moderate growth rate at a CAGR of 4.1% over the past half-decade. However, the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, especially in South Asia & Oceania and North America has effected chemical manufacturing across regions.
Trade of sodium chlorate has taken a major hit, and demand declined by near fourfold in the 2nd quarter of FY2020 as compared to the same period in FY2019. Decline in prices have also been observed over the period by the end of Q1 and till the beginning of Q3.
Majority of the market is concentrated in the paper and pulp industry where sodium chlorate is utilized for bleaching purposes. Shutdown of the paper & pulp industry for more than a quarter has cascaded the effect to the sodium chlorate market.
Slow recovery of the paper & pulp industry is set to resurrect the sodium chlorate market by the end of the 2nd quarter of FY2022. Analyzing recent price trends, prices are set to gain their original form by the beginning of H2 of FY2021. Furthermore, trends of balancing supply in accordance with the shrink in demand can be observed across regions.

Sodium Chlorate Market Insights by Form
Of the two major forms of sodium chlorate that get traded in the market, crystalline and amorphous, crystalline captures a majority of the market share, owing to its properties of providing well-defined surface area, which helps in providing better bleaching as compared to amorphous.
Crystalline is quite expensive as compared to amorphous, owing to its cost of production. Prices of crystalline have fluctuated over the past half-decade, creating three major market bubbles. Market bubbles have stayed for nearly a quarter, negatively affecting suppliers and distributors across the globe. Price elasticity of demand remains low despite its major concentration in the paper & pulp industry, owing to the supply shift in leverage.
Amorphous has limited applications, and demand rise is especially observed from various chemical industries utilizing it as oxidizing agent.

COVID-19 Impact on Sodium Chlorate Market
The coronavirus pandemic has brought the whole world to a standstill. Business activities have registered a downturn in the form of dwindling sales due to reduced production and demand. The same is true for the sodium chlorate market. Prominent end uses of sodium chlorate are in chemical applications.
The ongoing pandemic has led to a decline in all industrial activities, in the wake of disrupted supply chains. Extended lockdowns across different countries have nullified the production of sodium chlorate for the past few months, as key manufacturing units and factories are shut.
Even after these lockdowns are lifted, it will take at least a couple of quarters to restore production to normal. Thus, contracting demand from allied industries in 2020 will have prolonged effects on the growth of the global sodium chlorate market.
