Superior antimicrobial, bleaching and disinfectant properties offered by the product is expected to drive its demand in water treatment, pulp & paper, medical and textile applications.
Sodium chlorite manufacturers compete on the basis of product price, grades, and their global reach. Chinese companies are the price settlers for the product as the region dominates the production in the world. Increasing raw material prices coupled with competitive pricing in the industry are expected to hamper the profit margins for the players.
The product has been labelled as a hazardous material under USDOT regulations (49 CFR) and has to adhere to all 49 CFR regulations, which makes the shipping of the chemical an expensive proposition.
