Sorbic Acid & Potassium Sorbate Market Research (China)
Understanding of the supply and consumption situation of sodium chlorate in China is very important for suppliers, purchasers and investors who intend to enter China’s sodium chlorate market.

Global demand of sodium chlorate is estimated to over 3,500,000 tonnes annually. In the international market, sodium chlorate is dominated by four giants namely Eka Chemicals, ERCO Worldwide, Canexus, and Kemira, whose output accounts for approximately 80% of global total volume. Among which, Eka Chemicals is the top producer, attributing to its annual output of around 800,000 tonnes. As to the supply situation of sodium chlorate in China in 2013, the total output was about 430,000 tonnes. China exported 77,989 tonnes sodium chlorate in Jan.-Nov. 2013, accounting for less than 3% of total demand beyond China.

Sodium chlorate has a wide range of end use segments. It is primarily used to produce potassium perchlorate, which accounts for over 80% of output share of perchlorate’s total output. The sodium chlorate is also used to produce chlorine dioxide and sodium chlorite. The former is a strong oxidizing agent in paper making, sewage treatment, disinfection of drinking water, treatment of water cycle), and the latter is mainly consumed in such industries as fireworks and crackers, pulp & paper, water treatment and metal smelting, etc.

Mainly applied in the production of fireworks and crackers, potassium perchlorate ranks top among sodium chlorate consumption segments in China. Pulp & paper is the second largest end use segment of sodium chlorate. Water treatment industry is also a promising market for sodium chlorate. In the report, CCM will discover more details about the sodium chlorate consumption in the relevant end use segments.

CCM’s report also attaches importance to the following aspects:
  • China’s production of sodium chlorate in 2013
  • China’s consumption of sodium chlorate in 2013
  • Brief introduction of production technology
  • End use segmentation of sodium chlorate
  • Historical production and consumption data of sodium chlorate during 2010-2013
  • Forecast of sodium chlorate production and consumption by end use segment during 2014-2018
A wide coverage of readers:
  • Equipment suppliers (Electrolysis cell)
  • Purchasers of sodium chlorate;
  • Overseas purchasers of sodium chlorate;
  • Investors;
  • Information Organization;
  • More
Value to readers:
  • Discovering the consumption of sodium chlorate in each end use segment in China;
  • Understanding the supply of sodium chlorate (players, production, competition, etc.);
  • Obtaining the forecast on China’s sodium chlorate during 2014 to 2018 (capacity, output, consumption by end use segment);
