Market Analysis and Size
Potassium carbonate is the main constituent of potash and the more refined salts of tartar or pearl ash. Generally, pearl ash was formed by baking potash which was used to remove impurities. The remaining fine, white powder was the pearl ash. The first patent delivered by the US Patent Office and Samuel Hopkins was awarded in 1790 for an improved method of making pearl ash and potash. Potassium carbonate is widely used as a flux in the production of glass because it upsurges the resistance, transparency, and refractive coefficient of glass and provide excellent clarity. Growing demand for glass products such as in windows which is mainly used in automotive, building and construction are expected to create profitable growth opportunities for the potassium carbonate market.

Potassium carbonate is an inorganic compound and the formula is K2CO3. Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) is a white salt which is soluble in water and insoluble in ethanol and forms a strongly alkaline solution. Potassium carbonate can be made as the resultant of potassium hydroxide absorbent reaction with carbon dioxide. It has large capacity to absorb moisture. Potassium carbonate is mostly used in the manufacture of glass and soap.
Potassium Carbonate Market Dynamics
- Rise the demand of powder carbonate
Growing the usage of powder potassium carbonate in the production of personal care products, food and beverage and detergents due to its uniform concentration and easy solubility increase the sales which are expected to propelling the growth of the potassium carbonate market.
- Use in the production of glass
Potassium carbonate is used in the glass industry. Flat glass and fiber glass are some of the highly exclusive products in the glass industry used in many industries such as in chemical and consumer goods, automotive and construction industries. Growing sales of potassium carbonate in the glass industry can be attributed to increase the demand for glass from the construction sector.
- Increase the usage in agriculture
Potassium carbonate are mostly used in the field of agriculture. It is used for better growth of plants and also helps to absorb the water from the environment, it keeps the soil moist and soft. Farmers use potash to strengthen the stems and roots of the plants.
The huge application scope of potassium carbonate for food grade in the food industry and the large demand from glass industry is expected to positively impact the growth of the potassium carbonate market. These factors are also acting as an important determinant which will favour the growth of the potassium carbonate market during forecast period. Also, increase the demand from well-developed pharmaceutical industries and the increase in government support are also anticipated the growth of the potassium carbonate market.
