Sodium Selenite Market: Introduction
Sodium selenite is the disodium salt of selenious acid. It is an inorganic form of the trace element selenium exhibiting potential antineoplastic activity. It is naturally found in plant foods, meat, and seafood, as well as in supplements. Selenium is nutritionally essential for humans and is a consisting of selenoproteins that play critical roles in DNA synthesis, thyroid hormone metabolism, reproduction, and protection from oxidative infection.
Global market is driven by the widespread consumption of sodium selenite in the feed additive and dietary supplement application. In feed additive for poultry and farm animals, sodium selenite offers increased efficiency of egg, meat and milk production and also enhances its quality. Furthermore, owing to its array of health benefits, it is used as a dietary supplement ingredient. Various health benefits associated with the consumption of trace sodium selenite include its cancer-fighting abilities, combating thyroid disease, treating cellulitis, and lowering risks for HIV, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Thus, the healthier food choices of the consumers coupled with livestock trading is a key driver for the global sodium selenite market.
Besides its conventional use, sodium selenite is mainly used in the manufacture of colourless glass, which has been foreseen to be its dominant application throughout forecast period.
Glass and Pesticide Manufacturing to Propel the Sodium Selenite Market Growth
Glass industry uses sodium selenite as a colouring as well as a decolouring agent, where it is used to add pink colour and to remove green colour from the glass. Extensive use of glass across a wide range of end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, consumer goods, building & construction is a key factor that drives consumption of sodium selenite in glass making. High public and private spending on renovation and new construction activities across the globe have pushed demand for steel and glass, which is likely to positively influence sodium selenite market growth. Furthermore, sodium selenite also finds its application in pesticide formulation whose demand is foreseen to have high growth.
However, sodium selenite is toxic and require careful handling. Thus, additional handling and safety measure associated with sodium selenite is set to hamper market growth.
