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.
