The powdery substance known as sodium formate, which is white and deliquescent, is actually formic acid's sodium salt. Formic acid is neutralized with sodium carbonate to produce sodium formate for commercial use. Sodium hydroxide and chloroform react to create it. In a variety of end-user sectors, such as food & beverage, textile, and printing, sodium formate plays crucial functions as a dyeing agent, food additive, non-corrosive, and de-icing agent.
Sodium Formate Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increased Regulations associated with Organic Acids
The demand for organic acids in the animal nutrition industry has been fueled by a variety of regulations, and as people become more aware of how beneficial these acids are for feed quality and ultimately animal performance, sodium formate sales in this industry are expected to soar in the years to come. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently modified the rules governing the safe use of sodium formate as a food additive (Document citation: 81 FR 67153). The use of sodium formate in the creation of animal feed additives has also been approved as safe by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). As a result, the sodium formate is largely demanded for animal feed additives, thus boosting overall market growth.
- High Requirement Across Aerospace Industry
The aircraft industry is gradually switching to formate-based deicers due to growing worries about the environmental impact of deicing chemicals like urea and acetates. As a result, demand for sodium formate-based deicers has been gradually increasing, with the aerospace sector accounting for about 20% of the sodium formate market worldwide.
- Surge in Utilization across Other Industries
The upstream oil and gas industry has seen an increase in demand for sodium formate since it is used to make clear brine, a crucial chemical in work over and completion procedures. The main application of sodium formate in this area has been de-icing runways because, when combined with corrosion inhibitors and other additives, it swiftly penetrates solid snow and ice layers, releasing the snow from the concrete and melting it at a rapid rate. The global sodium formate market has been expanding as a result of the brisk growth of the food and beverage, dyeing and printing, and oil and gas industries.
Furthermore, owing to its dependability, consistency, and purity, sodium formate is being used more and more in the leather tanning business, which will further propel the overall growth rate of sodium formate market. Additionally, compared to traditional brines, sodium formate fluids have a variety of performance advantages as they are non-corrosive organic monovalent fluids.
- Discovery of New Oil and Gas Reserves
Furthermore, numerous oil corporations are constantly looking for fresh oil and gas deposits. Sodium formate is needed to control and stop the production of sand from wells in these new oil and gas discoveries. The newly discovered and potential oil and gas reserves further enhance the applications of product, extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.
- Growing Inclination towards Ecologically-Sound Solutions
Additionally, there has been growing inclination towards ecologically-sound solutions among consumers, which further boosts the demand for sodium formate will further expand the future growth of the sodium formate market.
- Drawbacks of Sodium Formate
However, manufacturers in the market are still concerned about sodium formate's hygroscopic properties. This feature of sodium formate translates into the need for additional additives to be added before usage and unique handling and storage requirements.
- Fluctuating Raw Material Costs
The unstable cost of raw materials is a major factor in the sodium formate market's below-average global growth. This is a significant issue limiting the growth of the sodium formate industry over the forecast period.
- Availability of Alternatives
Although there is still a small market for sodium formate as a de-icing agent, it is more probable that the many affordable alternatives now in use for de-icing will continue to pose a serious threat to sodium formate sales over the forecast period. This factor will challenge the sodium formate market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Sodium Formate Market
The COVID-19 pandemic epidemic has had a significant negative influence on the sodium formate business worldwide. Nearly all of the main countries had slower economic growth as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, which had an impact on consumer purchasing patterns. The supply-demand gap has widened as a result of the lockdown that has been enacted in a number of nations' transportation systems, which has adversely affected both domestic and international supply chains. Thus, inadequate raw material supply is anticipated to slow sodium formate production, which would have a negative effect on the expansion of the market.
However, given that governments have begun easing global standards for resuming economic activity, the situation is anticipated to get better.
