Further key findings from the report suggest

  • Potassium Chloride naturally preserves the personal care products and cosmetics by chelating bonds. The mixture of citric acid & its salts are also added to the personal care products in order to help adjust the acid to base ratio.
  • Growing penetration of the online retailing businesses for the chemicals and materials, especially in the emerging nations in the Asia Pacific, is helping the market grow by broadening the outreach in the areas where the services of the offline vendors are unavailable. Also, due to the non-involvement of distributors in the supply chain model, the profit margin is way more than that of the offline retailing. The online retailing is expected to gain a market share of 33.9% by 2027.
  • Potassium chloride is used to treat hyperkalemia and disorders pertaining to the kidney, adrenal glands, and others. For some open-heart surgeries, KCL is injected into the heart muscles in order to stop the heartbeat as the procedure cannot proceed with the heart rhythmic contraction and expansion processes.
  • In January 2018, two major giants of the fertilizers industry in Canada namely, Agrium and Potash Corporation in Saskatchewan, merged into one company, named, Nutrien Ltd. Nutrien Ltd. was headquartered in Saskatchewan, Canada. The joint venture of these two giants have, in turn, made them the biggest fertilizer producer in the world.
  • European region is forecasted to witness significant growth in the overall market, with 15.6% of market possession by 2027, having grown with a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. Germany and the Netherlands hold some of the most prominent players in this region.
  • North America, with its high demand for potassium chloride in agricultural & healthcare industries, is accounted to retain a significant position in the global market by 2027, growing with a CAGR of 5.3% throughout the forecast period.
