While the market will grow at a steady rate over the next decade, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has left a detrimental effect. The pandemic is expected to affect consumer spending across various sectors such as food and FMCG.

Furthermore, industrial salt is economically viable as compared to natural salt, which is further catalyzing the growth of the industrial salt sector. Chlorine is used as a primary source for chlorine and sodium hydroxide production, as it is extensively available and inexpensive.

Growth in the commodity chemicals market is expected to drive the consumption of solid sodium chloride, which in turn is expected to fuel the demand in the coming years. As such, the annual growth rate of the sodium chloride market is slated to decline during 2020-21, but is poised for sharp recovery over the next financial year.
