The Chemistry behind Sodium Thiosulphate: Molecular Formula and Hydrate Forms

The global sodium thiosulphate market is driven by its wide range of applications across various industries. Its molecular formula Na2S2O3.xH2O signifies its versatility and solubility in water. The compound's availability in different hydrate forms, including the commonly used pentahydrate, Na2S2O3·5H2O, adds to its appeal. Sodium thiosulphate's manufacturing process, involving sulfur, sodium sulfite, and sodium hydroxide, ensures its efficient production. The compound finds applications in photography, medical treatments, water treatment, and industrial processes. As these industries continue to expand, the demand for sodium thiosulphate remains robust.

According to Data Bridge Market Research, the Global Sodium Thiosulphate Market was valued at USD 96.36 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 159.48 million by 2029, registering a CAGR of 6.50% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.

“Rising demand for its application in water treatment processes facilitate market growth”

The global sodium thiosulphate market is driven by the rising demand for its application in water treatment processes. Sodium thiosulphate's ability to neutralize chlorine in water makes it a crucial component in dechlorination applications, ensuring the removal of harmful chlorine residuals from water sources. As water treatment becomes increasingly essential for maintaining water quality and meeting regulatory standards, the demand for sodium thiosulphate continues to grow. Its effectiveness in dechlorination processes across various industries, including municipal water treatment and industrial applications, fuels its market expansion.

What restraints the growth of the global sodium thiosulphate market?

“Fluctuating prices of raw materials”

The global sodium thiosulphate market faces a challenge in the form of fluctuating prices of raw materials. Sodium thiosulphate production relies on key inputs such as sulfur and sodium carbonate, both of which can experience price volatility due to supply and demand dynamics, geopolitical factors, and market conditions. These price fluctuations can impact the cost structure of sodium thiosulphate manufacturing, potentially affecting profit margins and posing a challenge to market stability and growth.
