Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] The Sodium Hypochlorite Market has grown at 12.50 million tonnes in 2020 and is projected to achieve a healthy CAGR of 5.15% in the forecast period until 2030. Sodium Hypochlorite (NaClO) commonly known as liquid bleach is a chlorine compound composed of a Sodium cation and a Hypochlorite anion. It is a highly reactive, volatile, and pale greenish-yellow aqueous solution, which is traditionally used as a household chemical. Sodium Hypochlorite is widely known as an excellent sterilizer, oxidizer, bleaching agent, germicide, and the most effective disinfecting agent. The production of Sodium Hypochlorite is done on a large scale by combining chlorine gas and caustic soda. Due to the strong disinfectant properties of Sodium Hypochlorite, it is largely used as an active ingredient in water treatment and cleaning solutions and helps in preventing health damage from harmful microorganisms. Sodium Hypochlorite act as a chlorinating agent which keeps swimming pools and drinking water safe and works as a key component in the formulation of cleaning solutions for various Grades, including veterinary, food processing, odor removal, and others.
Sodium hypochlorite possesses versatile bleaching properties and is therefore utilized as a bleaching agent in the pulp and paper, and textile industry. The growing demand for Sodium Hypochlorite as it works like a broad-spectrum disinfectant that is effective for the disinfection of viruses, bacteria, fungi, mycobacterium, and other microorganisms by various end-use industries is likely to boost the Sodium Hypochlorite market in the forecast period. Depending upon the type, the Sodium Hypochlorite market is segmented into food grade and industrial grade. Among these, the food-grade segment holds the maximum share in the market as Sodium Hypochlorite is widely used as a biocide and pulp digestion chemical. 
On the basis of end-use industries, the Hypochlorite market is segmented into wastewater treatment, agriculture, chemical, textile, medical, and others. The wastewater chemical treatment industry has been the major driver of the Sodium Hypochlorite market owing to rapid urbanization and industrialization especially in emerging economies including China and India. Exponentially increasing demand for bleach by the textiles, and pulp and paper industry is expected to boost the Sodium Hypochlorite market around the world in coming years. The surging demand for Sodium Hypochlorite by the medical industry for disinfecting surgical instruments and hospital rooms is poised to augment the Sodium Hypochlorite market during the forecast period. Rising awareness regarding the continuous and proper disinfection of office spaces, public toilets, malls, complexes, etc is further propelling the demand for Sodium Hypochlorite and is likely to boost the Sodium Hypochlorite market across the globe in the future. However, the hazardous nature of Sodium Hypochlorite owing to its strong oxidizing properties can somewhere hamper the market growth. 
The Sodium Hypochlorite market was drastically affected around the world due to the outbreak of coronavirus. Government authorities in several countries imposed countrywide lockdowns and strict social distancing norms which affected the overall demand and sales of Sodium Hypochlorite in the first half of 2020. Major end-use industries including textiles, pulp and paper, water treatment, and others were severely affected due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, the demand for Sodium Hypochlorite surged during the covid times in the medical industry in order to prevent the spread of the deadly virus. 
Among different regions, the Asia Pacific region dominated the global Sodium Hypochlorite market in 2020 and is likely to maintain its dominance until 2030. The dominance of the Sodium Hypochlorite market in the Asia Pacific region was driven by the rapid urbanization and industrialization in emerging countries including China, India, and others. Low cost and easy availability of liquid bleach in the Asia Pacific region will further accelerate the market growth of Sodium Hypochlorite. The rising demand for liquid bleach for cleaning and hygiene purposes is likely to boost Sodium Hypochlorite in North America.
Major players for Sodium Hypochlorite include Odyssey Manufacturing Co., AGC group, Sunbelt Chemical Corporations, Orica Watercare, Solvay Chem, Akzo Nobel, Shanghai Polymet Commodities Ltd., BASF Chemicals, Olin Chlor Alkali, Arkema Group, Ineos, Sumitomo Chemical, Surpress Chem, Aditya Birla, OxyChem Corporation, Hawkins, Inc., and Others.
