Sodium Dichromate Market OverviewSodium dichromate is used as a salt to produce all majority compounds and materials based on chromium. It is used for manufacturing potassium dichromate and acetic anhydride. The applications of sodium dichromate have increased in the metal finishing industry because it prevents metal surface corrosion. It is widely used in wood preservatives, manufacturing of pigments, and leather tanning. Sodium dichromate finds application in mud drilling, paints, and coatings, textile dyeing, vitamin K, and wax. It is increasingly used as a mordant in dyeing due to its color-fastening property. It is also used to manufacture colored glasses and ceramic glazes.
Surging demand for pigments from the textile and infrastructure industries in the developing economies is expected to drive the Sodium Dichromate Market Growth. For instance, according to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian textile industry is expected to reach USD 230 billion by 2020. Increasing use of sodium dichromate in construction sector coupled with growing population in India is likely to propel the market growth in Asia Pacific region. Its application in flexible packaging has grown over the last few years as it extends the shelf life of the packaged products. Rising per capita income and changing fashion trends have increased the demand for the product in the leather industry. Leather manufacturers across the globe have realized the value of tanning, i.e., increased shelf life of the product. Such factors have shifted the preference of manufacturers towards sodium dichromate. Sodium dichromate consumption is increasing in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, electrical, and defense to make the surface of the metal corrosion resistant. Its usage in wood preservatives is increasing due to its ability to extend life of the wood. Increasing demand for wood preservatives owing to its use in various applications such as utility fencing, decking, and infrastructure is projected to propel the Sodium Dichromate Market Growth. Moreover, demand for the product is rising across the globe from industries using chromium compound for making chemicals.
However, it is irritating to skin and eyes and is also classified as a human carcinogen, which may develop lung cancer. This factor is slated to restrict market growth and challenge industry participants
