Global Potassium Hydroxide Market: Trends and Opportunities
Potassium hydroxide is used in the manufacturing of alternative health products, medical diagnostics, and cleaning products. It is also employed in the production of chemicals such as laurate, titanate, oleate, manganite, gluconate, bromide, bromate borohydride, fluosilicate, formate, aluminate, and potassium cyanide. The prime factor driving the growth of the market is the proliferating use of potassium hydroxide in fertilizers and household products.
Rising population is also one of the key reasons behind the growing demand for potassium hydroxide as it leads to a rise in food consumption in turn fueling the sales of fertilizers for better agricultural produce. Moreover, the rising disposable income of consumers in emerging economies in Asia Pacific and the Rest of the World is expected to bolster the growth of the global potassium hydroxide market. However, health and environmental hazards associated with the use of potassium hydroxide are likely to restrain the growth of the market. Government bodies and regulatory organizations have imposed strict regulations regarding the consumption of potassium hydroxide and have made it mandatory for industries employing it to adhere certain standards.
Global Potassium Hydroxide Market: Regional Outlook
The global potassium hydroxide market is segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and the Rest of the World. Asia Pacific dominated the global potassium hydroxide market followed by North America in terms of consumption and it is anticipated that the trend will continue over the next few years. China and India are likely to emerge as the leading markets for potassium hydroxide in Asia Pacific due to the mounting population in these countries. The growth of the potassium hydroxide market in the Rest of the World segment is likely to be driven by the growing consumption of potassium hydroxide in Latin America. The markets for potassium hydroxide in Eastern Europe and Russia are projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period.
