The major key factor that is driving the potassium acetate market is that potassium acetate is the compound that is used as a substitute for potassium chloride.
Potassium Acetate Market
Global Potassium Acetate Market: Overview
Potassium acetate is the potassium salt of the acetic acid and has the chemical formula KCH3COO. Potassium acetate is soluble in liquid, alcohol, and ammonia. The production of the compound potassium acetate in the industries includes treatment of potassium carbonate and bicarbonate with the glacial acetic acid which is followed by the heating of the compound at 100°C. There are various uses of potassium acetate one of them being its usage in the industries which include intermediates, agricultural chemicals, working fluids, anti-adhesive agents, and processing aids. The compound is also used for anti-freeze and de-icing products, farm products, and construction/building materials.
Global Potassium Acetate Market: Segmentation
The market for potassium acetate is globally fragmented into application and product type. On the basis of application, the market is segregated into pharmaceutical, food & beverages, and chemical & material. Based on the product type, the global market is categorized into the technical grade, pharmaceutical grade, and food grade.
Global Potassium Acetate Market: Growth Factors
The major key factor that is driving the potassium acetate market is that potassium acetate is the compound that is used as a substitute for potassium chloride. This is due to the strict environmental restrictions that are implemented on the applications of the potassium chloride. The functional properties of potassium chloride are same as that of potassium acetate; hence, being used as an alternative option. The solubility of potassium acetate is more as compared to potassium chloride and in the high-density brines potassium acetate has a high potential usage. Other major factors that are contributing to the market growth of the potassium acetate are its ideal usage in the areas which are sensitive environmentally, the fluid that is provided is free from chloride, and also provides swelling inhibition and shale hydration with the help of electrolytic balance and cation exchange. The major factor that hampers the growth of the market is the side effects of the potassium acetate compound if it is used in inadequate composition. The common symptoms of intoxication of potassium acetate are tingling and burning sensation in the hands and feet, amongst others.
