Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103011 | Status : Ongoing



Inorganic chemicals are those that have been generated primarily from anthropomorphic earth materials such as atmosphere, rocks, and others. Inorganic chemicals are compounds formed from either the processing of specific chemical substances. They are distinct from organic chemicals which are extracted directly from animal and plant sources. Salt is one of the inorganic compounds which are applied in different industries. Salt are one of the world's most valuable minerals, and an essential element of the food consumption. It is a sodium and chlorine mixture that undergoes a number of processing activities involving seawater evaporation, brine extraction, rock salt, brine extraction, and mining.

The industry is driven by the rise in the demand for salt applied in the chemical manufacturing industry , especially in chlorine-alkali chemicals production. In the chemical industry, chlorine-alkali is a major user of the product due to a lack of any economic alternative for the commodity. However the process of extracting the substance from mines includes additional approvals, and licenses from mining officials around the globe, which are supposed to curb production. Additionally, mine facility operating levels vary significantly with increasing demand for the de-icing product, which is projected to delay the market growth over the forecast period.

Key Market Driver -

Rising Chlor-alkali chemicals demand drives the market.

Key Market Restraint -

Several regulations relating to the mining activities will restrict growth.
