Global potassium hydroxide industry overview

One of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global potassium hydroxide market is the increasing demand for potassium carbonate. In end-user industries such as the detergents, glass, cosmetics, food, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture sectors, potassium carbonate produced from potassium hydroxide is widely used as a raw material or chemical intermediate to manufacture end-user products. The major factor driving the global potassium carbonate market is the high demand for the chemical from the glass industry. Potassium carbonate is used to manufacture optical and specialty glass for cathode ray tubes used in televisions, computer monitors, and other electronic devices. Moreover, the development of cost-effective manufacturing methods for liquid laundry detergents using potassium carbonate is creating a high potential for revenue generation among major laundry detergent manufacturers in the global market. The increasing demand for liquid laundry detergents can be attributed to the rising preference for automatic washing machines, which is further driving the market demand for potassium carbonate. The leading global manufacturers of potassium carbonate cater to industries such as institutional cleaning, specialty glass, food and pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Potassium carbonate is a good source of potassium ions in fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and catalysts. Moreover, it also enhances the fluxing properties in glass and metal applications.

Increasing applications of potassium hydroxide are one of the major trends augmenting the growth of the global potassium hydroxide market. The demand for potassium hydroxide from various end-user industries is rising steadily. It is used as industrial and institutional cleaners. At the molecular level, potassium hydroxide is smaller than sodium hydroxide. This allows them to enter oil molecules more rapidly than sodium hydroxide and break the oil’s hold on the surface faster so that they can be rinsed away easily using hot water or steam. Owing to such factors, the global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 5% during the forecast period.
