Key Insights - Sodium Chlorate Market

Applications in Pulp & Paper Manufacturing Remains Traditional Growth Avenue

Despite the rise in digitalization that has reduced the use of paper, the paper and pulp industry is still witnessing steady growth due to increasing use of packaging paper and tissue paper. Tissue papers including facial wipes, baby wipes, and toilet papers are used on a large scale in restaurants, offices, and households. This is driving the demand for pulp, which is further driving demand for sodium chlorate used in producing chlorine dioxide.

Although chlorine dioxide’s use as a bleaching agent in the pulp industry has come under the scanner of growing regulations, demand has remained steady. However, to ensure compliance, end-users have started using substitutes such as hydrogen peroxide and ozone in pulp bleaching. These factors are likely to stymie demand for sodium chlorate in the future.

Sensing the evolutions in end-user demand and broader focus on environmental conservation, sodium chlorate manufacturers are focusing on introducing simple, efficient, and cost-effective process for generating chlorine dioxide using sodium chlorate.

Applications in Surface Treatment of Metals Continue to Create Opportunities

Surface treatment remains a common procedure across a range of industries including construction, automotive, industrial equipment, medical, aerospace, and chemical laboratories.

The global construction industry is likely to witness steady growth in next five years, with growth averaging nearly 3%. Meanwhile, the demand in automotive sector is expected to grow significantly in developed countries due to advanced technologies and improved engine designs. Also, evolution of smart and cost-effective medical devices have led to the growth in the medical industry. Growth in these industries is driving the need for surface treatment materials including sodium chlorate.

Although the aforementioned industries are growing, the surface treatment of metals is also being done using sodium chlorate alternatives such as hydrofluoric acid, sodium dichromate, nitric acid, and phosphoric acid, regarded as similar strong oxidants.

Sodium chlorate has also emerged as effective defoliant in agriculture industry. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, around 90% of growth in global crop production is likely to come from higher yields and increased cropping intensity. 

Easy Availability of Alternatives Remains Creating Sluggishness

Sodium chlorate is one of the most widely used chemicals worldwide, especially, in the paper and pulp industry. However, different types of pulps are being used in the paper and pulp industry that require different chemicals and processes of bleaching.

For instance, mechanical pulps used in the production of paper have a huge amount of lignin. Hence, the focus of the bleaching in mechanical pulp is to remove chromophore. Therefore, alkaline hydrogen peroxide is used as a bleaching agent in mechanical pulp.

Moreover, in the coming years, the majority of the customers are likely to prefer a low level of paper whiteness, thus reducing the amount of bleaching required. This is expected to hamper the growth in the sodium chlorate market.

Sodium chlorate is highly reactive with combustible chemicals and can result in an explosion when contaminated with dry organic materials. Hence, manufacturers are introducing more safe alternatives to sodium chlorate, thus challenging the growth of the sodium chlorate market.

Health Risk Hampering Widespread Adoption

Sodium chlorate is the strong oxidizer and used in water solution, dyes, explosives, pharmaceuticals, bleaching agents, paper, and cosmetics. High exposure to sodium chlorate occurs mainly during its production and use. Moreover, exposure to sodium chlorate can result in adverse health effects.

Ingestion of sodium chlorate can cause dizziness, stomach upset, heart problems, and blue discoloration of skin. While breathing in sodium chlorate can cause irritation to throat, nose, and lungs. Hence, some domestic and foreign regulatory bodies are introducing rules to address the health effects of sodium chlorate.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also offers the list on sodium chlorate including types of hazard, acute symptoms, prevention, and first aid. Regulatory bodies across countries in the US and Europe have offered information on the health effects of sodium chlorate and safety measures.

Sodium chlorate is a key bleaching agent in Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) process. It minimizes the impact of effluents, while ensuring high degree of brightness. The pulp and paper industry in Europe is using ECF technique on large scale for bleaching of paper pulp. Meanwhile, paper and pulp producers in Canada, Thailand, Japan, and Latin America have also started using ECF process.

Sodium Chlorate in Crystalline Form to Account for the Highest Share

Sodium chlorate is mostly found and used in form of white crystalline material. These crystals look similar to table salt. Moreover, in crystal form sodium chlorate is stable at the temperature up to 250?C. However, above this temperature, it starts decomposing slowly and steadily forming sodium chloride and oxygen.

Majority of the industries are using sodium chlorate in its crystal form due to the fact that it is not flammable. Manufacturers in the sodium chlorate market also supply sodium chlorate mostly in the crystalline form with proper packaging in order to avoid excessive heat that may release oxygen gas, resulting in fire and explosions. Packaging materials such as special sacks, drum, and hopper truck are used to pack and deliver sodium chlorate crystals.

Sodium chlorate crystals are used in manufacturing oxidizing agents, dyes, herbicides, explosives, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and inks.
