Sodium Hydrosulfite Market Trends



  • Increased textile production is driving the market growth


Numerous nations around the world have seen an upsurge in textile businesses. For instance, India launched the Non-Woven Fabric Manufacturing Expansion Project in Himachal Pradesh in July 2021 for INR 220 million ($2.9 million). Additionally, it launched a project to expand the manufacturing of man-made textile fibers for INR 9710 million ($ 13.2 million). In addition, a recent post on fibre2fashion claims that over 70% of all enterprises in Vietnam manufacture clothing. It also notes that during the first five months of 2021, American textile and apparel imports rose by 26.79%, reaching $41.689 billion. Additionally, the UNEP announced the start of a new initiative in 2021 that aims to give authorization for eco-innovation and the use of Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) inside textile SMEs in Kenya, South Africa, and Tunisia. This would lead to an increase in the need for the usage of sodium hydrosulfite in various textile operations worldwide, which would lead to an increase in the market's CAGR.


Additionally, the demand for sodium hydrosulfite is most likely to rise along with the demand for paper production from the packaging and e-commerce industries. They can easily react with the colors in the pulp since sodium hydrosulfite is a potent reducing agent. As a result, they work well to bleach recycled pulp. A recent report on Interpack predicts an increase in food packaging used to $447,066 million by 2023. Additionally, it claims that Chinese packaging firms 3D, SIP, and WLCSP alone generated $5.88 billion in revenue from end packaging. Since sodium hydrosulfite is the main ingredient used to make the paper needed for packaging, it is anticipated that it will drive the growth of the sodium hydrosulfite market in the future.


Furthermore, the rising use of sodium hydrosulfite in cosmetics is one of the major trends that will propel the growth prospects for the sodium hydrosulfite market during the anticipated period. For producing cosmetics, deodorants, hair dyes, hair colors, and moisturizers, many producers favor using sodium hydrosulfite. Because it can break the disulfide bonds in hair, it is also utilized in hair waving and straightening products. It is additionally employed as an oxygen-based bleach. Thus, driving the sodium hydrosulfite market revenue.


Sodium Hydrosulfite Market Segment Insights:


Sodium Hydrosulfite End-Use Industry Insights


The sodium hydrosulfite market segmentation, based on type includes pulp & paper, textile, food & beverage, personal care & cosmetics, leather and water treatment. The textile segment dominated the market. The demand for textile goods has significantly increased on a scale. The use of sodium dithionite for bleaching, whitening textiles, or decolorizing dyed materials will also be necessary as textile activities expand in a number of nations throughout the world.


For instance, Teejay Lanka, one of the largest textile producers in the area, announced plans to double the capacity of its Indian mill after finishing an expansion project that required an investment of $15 million, and it will continue to be developed through 2021.


Sodium Hydrosulfite Form Insights


The sodium hydrosulfite market segmentation, based on form includes liquid and powder. The liquid segment dominated the market. The use of liquid sodium hydrosulfite for bleaching is typically chosen over powder or other forms since it is dust-free, clean to handle, and uses less energy. Good stability during storage and transportation is among the additional benefits of employing liquid sodium hydrosulfite.


Sodium Hydrosulfite Production Process Insights


The sodium hydrosulfite market segmentation, based on the production process, includes zinc dust process and sodium formate process. The zinc dust process category generated the most income. The zinc process involves the reaction of sulfur dioxide with zinc dust, which transforms the resulting zinc salt into sodium hydrosulfite when caustic soda or soda ash is present. They are typically employed to lighten paper pulps, treat beetroot and cane juices, bleach textiles and reduce mining flotations.
