The global industrial salts market is quadrupling rapidly mainly due to the use of these salts in an array of application areas across the major industries. Available in various types, industrial salts find a line of applications mainly in agriculture, healthcare, and construction industries. Owing to its extensive uses, industrial salts gain a lot of prominences and sequentially momentum on the global platform.
Considering the significant traction, the market is garnering currently; Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global industrial salts market will accrue exponentially, posting a staggering CAGR during the estimated period.
Leverage to the rising population worldwide that has resulted in heightened demand for food supply and increase the demand in industrial salts market. Additionally, rising application of industrial salts across industries including oil gas, agriculture, textile, soaps detergents, and pharmaceuticals are driving the market growth to an extent.
Also, some of the factors that act as a major tailwind to the growth of the market include the growing chemical industries across the globe and the uses of these salts in chemical processing of various chemicals and as a dye-enhancer for textiles during the manufacturing, processing, and refining of fabrics and materials. Industrial salts are also used for water softening, which is another dominant driving force behind the growth of the market.
On the other hand, factors such as the environmental and health concerns associated with the extensive use of industrial salts in specific applications are obstructing the market growth, restricting their uses.
Nevertheless, increasing application areas of industrial salt such as in the power industry including nuclear power and, in the drilling fluids used in the OG sector is expected to support the growth of the market throughout the review period.

Industry/ Innovation/ Related News:
February 22, 2019 — — A group of physicists at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen (Denmark) announced finding a design, the molten salt reactor, that might turn nuclear power into the greenest energy source on the planet. These researchers found that molten salt reactors had a simplicity, elegance and, well, weirdness that especially appealed.
The standard alternatives used in the wind and solar power are not sufficient. They couldn’t offer nearly enough energy the world is demanding currently. Yet, conventional nuclear reactors which could meet the need, in principle were massively expensive, potentially dangerous, and anathema to much of the public.
On the other hand, the uses of Molten salt reactors in nuclear power can avoid that spewing extra amount of carbon dioxide that impacts the environment badly but provide that power without using coal and gas.
