Global Soda Ash Market is valued approximately USD 17.8 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 4.2 % over the forecast period 2021-2027. Soda ash, generally known as sodium carbonate, is an alkali chemical that is extracted from trona ore. It’s an odourless powder that’s not hazardous, combustible, or explosive. Dense soda ash is an anhydrous material that is primarily employed in the production of industrial chemicals. In a variety of industrial processes, light soda ash is utilized as a pH regulator. The increased demand from end-user industries is driving the soda ash industry. Soda ash is used in the production of glass, which is utilized in automotive, building and construction. Rising demand in soaps and detergents industry is also likely to fuel the global soda ash market over the forecasted period. For instance, according to the report of United States Geological Survey, the total world production of soda ash was 56,800 metric tons in 2019, comprising of 41,000 metric tons of synthetic and 15,800 metric tons of natural soda ash. Also, as per the United States Geological Survey, around 30% of soda ash exports in the US are used for glass manufacture. However, the environmental norms and laws regulating the use of chemicals in the production of synthetic soda ash, as well as the constantly fluctuating cost of the raw materials used in the production of soda ash hinders the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2021-2027.
