Market Dynamics Outlook

“Zinc Sulphate Demand Across Healthcare and Cosmetic Industry to Drive Market”

Zinc sulphate is a versatile compound and has a broad range of applications in numerous industries such as medicine, chemicals, agriculture, and others. Zinc sulphate is typically used in the treatment of zinc deficiency in the human body and in skin-related diseases.

Due to the poor diet the zinc deficiency has become global problem and this pattern is likely to continue in the coming year. Zinc deficiency causes various problems, including appetite loss, growth retardation, and impaired Immune function. Thus, zinc sulphate is added to dietary supplement for the treatment of zinc deficiency.

Hence, rising demand for zinc sulphate from the medical sector is helping to create lucrative growth opportunities for the players operating in the zinc sulphate market during the forecast period.

Further, zinc has many benefits, such as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which is why it has been widely used in cosmetics. In addition, zinc sulphate acts as a cosmetic astringent, oral care agent, and cosmetic biocide.

When used in cosmetic products, it is used for various purposes such as cleaning the skin, deodorizing, limiting the growth of microorganisms, and others. Such factors and the increasing use of cosmetic products over the millennia in both developed and developing economies drive the expansion of the zinc sulphate market.

“Factors to Restrain Market Growth”

Awareness of the harmful effects of pesticides and the adoption of healthy lifestyles by end-users have been major obstacles to the development of zinc sulphate. People are switching to organic or bio-based products because they are safe for human consumption as well as for the environment.

On the other hand, inadequate treatment, low nutritional intake, reduced bioavailability, and unhygienic conditions are some of the factors that may limit the growth of the zinc sulphate market over a period of time. Also, the use of alternatives such as other corrosion inhibitors instead of zinc sulphate is a restraining factor in the market growth.

Why Zinc Sulphate Market is Witnessing Prominent Growth in China?

East Asia is the world's largest producer of zinc sulphate, with major producers particularly located in China, and is set to witness a major demand. Rising agrochemical production in China to push the demand for zinc sulphate in the coming years.

Zinc sulphate is used as a fertilizer additive and agricultural spray to treat zinc deficiency in plants. Rise in population leads to increased demand for food and agricultural activities across the region. Growth in the agricultural sector increases the demand for fertilizers, which will boost the zinc sulphate demand during the forecast period.

Zinc sulphate prices have remained stable in the region for the past five years. In addition, economies of scale, agglomeration effects, and density effects are key factors in the zinc sulphate market, which are expected to stabilize the demand for zinc sulphate during the medium-term forecast period.

Economies of scale are key factors driving the zinc sulphate market in the region. China thus serves as a potential country to set up new zinc sulphate production facilities.

Why is India Considered One of the Key Markets for Zinc Sulphate?

Population growth and rural development are some of the factors driving the agricultural industry in India. Demand for fertilizers, hybrid seeds, and related services is anticipated to create immense growth opportunities for the zinc sulphate market.

A growing agricultural sector requires high-yielding fertilizers and seeds. Nutrients & fertilizers are equally important for the growth of crops and plants. Zinc sulphate is used with NPK manures to maintain zinc levels in the soil. It prevents zinc deficiency in plants and helps them to grow.

Increasing zinc deficiency in Indian soil has made zinc the most significant crop nutrient required to add externally. Thus, the consumption of zinc sulphate in fertilizers is anticipated to increase, which will create lucrative opportunities for the Indian zinc sulphate market in the coming year.
