Sodium Formate Market: Growth Drivers

Growing application as a de-icing agent to drive market growth

The global sodium formate market is projected to grow owing to the increasing use of the compound as a de-icing agent for runways and roads during the winter season in several countries that deal with extremely low temperatures. They are used to make the roads safer for driving and other purposes. Regions such as Europe, the US, and Canada along with several other nations are witness to severely low temperatures during the winter months which causes ice and snow to accumulate on the road, runways, and other surfaces.

This event can prove to be extremely hazardous for driving and transportation resulting in loss of life and other severe damages. To ensure that the public is safe against such accidents, several relevant agencies use different forms of de-icing agents regularly and sodium formate is a popular choice. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) has reported that the country witnesses almost 10,000 accidents annually due to poor winter driving conditions.

Sodium Formate Market: Restraints

Health concerns to restrict the market growth

One of the key restraints faced by the global sodium formate industry is in terms of growing health concerns over the use of sodium formate. The compounds can be harmful when ingested or if they come in contact with the eyes or skin. Some of the commonly reported cases include skin irritation and prolonged exposure can intensify the skin condition caused by sodium formate. In addition, if it is ingested it can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. There are also certain reports that suggest sodium formate to be a carcinogenic compound.

Sodium Formate Market: Opportunities

Increasing use in the production of bio-based products to provide growth opportunities

The global sodium formate industry players can expect higher growth opportunities owing to the increasing use of sodium formate in the production of bio-based products such as biofuels and bioplastics. In these production processes, sodium format is used as a reducing agent, especially during the production of bioethanol and biodiesel. In procedures involving the production of bioplastics, sodium formate is used as a catalyst for speeding up the reaction.

Sodium Formate Market: Challenges

Strict guidelines to challenge market growth

Since sodium formate is a chemical compound, it is subject to severe and stringent regulations. The guidelines surrounding the production, transportation, and storage of sodium formate are extremely strict and these rules may vary between nations. Complying with the varying protocols can be time-consuming leading to a limited number of players operating in the market.

Sodium Formate Market: Segmentation

The global sodium formate market is segmented based on application, industry verticals, and region.

Based on application, the global market segments are food additives, reducing agents, chemical intermediates, de-icing agents, and catalysts. In 2022, the industry registered the highest growth in the catalysts segment and it held dominance over 27.4% of the global market revenue. During the forecast period, it may grow at a CAGR of 4.6%.

The most common application of sodium formate as a catalyst is in the production of organic compounds which helps to increase the rate of the chemical reaction. Additionally, the food additive segment remained the second largest shareholder in the segment where sodium formate is used to preserve food production for a longer period. With the rise in the food products sector, the demand for sodium formate is likely to continue growing.

Based on industry verticals, the global industry players are textile, aviation, chemical, printing, oil & gas, and food & beverage. The highest consumers of sodium are formate in the food & beverage sector. In 2022, the industry amassed more than 25.1% of the total revenue. During the forecast period, sodium formate is likely to become a preferred choice in terms of feed acidifying ingredients. Additionally, since sodium formate is highly effective in preserving organic food products, its application in the F&B sector is expected to continue growing.

The expansion in the aviation sector could be triggered by the rising discard of de-icing agents such as acetates and urea and a higher inclination toward format-based agents. This segment could grow at a CAGR of 5.9%.

Recent Developments:

  • In May 2020, the European Food Safety Authority published a report on the official website detailing the efficacy of sodium formate being used as a technological food additive to improve feed quality for all animal species. The report concludes that the sodium format did not pose any severe potential harm and could be used as an effective preservative
  • In September 2022, the Indian Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers along with, Department of Chemicals & Petrochemicals, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry announced that the agency will soon make amendments to change the policy guidelines that influence the country’s fast-growing chemical and petrochemicals sector. The agency also acknowledges the importance of the industry in making India a USD 5 trillion economy in the coming years
