Published Date:   June 2016

The global inorganic salts market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during 2016 - 2022. The major factors driving the growth of the global market include increased salt consumption and its application in various chemical manufacturing industries, and the growth of fertilizer and agrochemicals industries. Inorganic salts are utilized in a number of industries. Chemical manufacturing is by far the largest market for inorganic salts. The industry which produces chlor alkali and synthetic soda ash uses salts as their primary feedstock. Salts, such as magnesium oxide are used in pharmaceutical industries as an antacid and also in cement manufacturing industry as epsom salt. Calcium salts, zinc salts, nitrates, ammonium phosphate and others have excellent soil nutrient content enhancing property, which is driving the growth of the fertilizer industry. Zinc oxide is a major ingredient for vulcanization of rubber, and it is used in rubber processing, paints and ceramic industries.
