is classified as an inorganic salt made from the reaction of Sodium and carbonic acid. It is also known as soda ash, soda crystals and washing soda. Sodium carbobate in its most common form occurs as a crystalline decahydrate, which readily effloresces to form a white powder known as the monohydrate. Pure sodium carbonate is a white, odorless powder that is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). It has a strongly alkaline taste, and forms a moderately basic solution in water. Sodium carbonate has became a house hold chemical as a water softner and as a part of the soaps and detergents. Apart from this manufacturing process of glass is also an important applications of soda ash. Growing end-use industries and its products is expected to drive the global demand for the soda ash during the period of study.
Geographically Asia-Pacific dominated sodium carbonate market
in terms of production and consumption driven by higher demand into waste water treatment, paper and pulp and chemical industry in the region. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest market for sodium carbonate market. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to higher population and increasing disposable income leading to higher demand for end use products of sodium carbonate such as detergents and glass along with increasing industrial base demanding higher consumption of sodium carbonate.
