Sodium Carbonate Market Size To Touch USD 21.3 Billion By 2030

The global sodium carbonate market size was evaluated at USD 13.26 billion in 2022 and is expected to touch around USD 21.3 billion by 2030, growing at a noteworthy CAGR of 6.10% from 2022 to 2030.

Sodium Carbonate Market Size and Growth Rate From 2022 To 2023

Sodium carbonate, widely known as soda ash, is a whitish inorganic chemical that has the presence of alkaline properties and is also used in the production of multiple products such as detergents, glasses, chemicals, feed & food sectors. The chemical formula of sodium carbonate is N2CO3 which is also referred to as a hygroscopic and amorphous substance that has increased the solubility in each solvent including water. Sodium carbonate is also extracted from ashes of vegetation with high contents of sodium.

The chemical is also an industrial formula of limestone and sodium chlorides using the processes known as the ‘Solvay Process.’ It is also referred to as a chemically active substance which releases the carbon dioxide after treatment with acids. Although sodium carbonate chemical has low levels of toxicity, prolonged exposure to such chemical may induce eye or skin irritation. Moreover, the ingestion of sodium carbonate is likely to cause vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and stomach ache. The sodium carbonate also aids in reducing the furnace temperatures which is essential for the melting of sand in the glassmaking industries that need to focus on the reduction of cost of production. 

Regional Snapshots:

The geographical sectors of North America have also developed the largest market which has resulted from the large presence of leading market players in this region. Additionally, the existence of advanced processing facilities that are supplied by the governments in the form of compensation services as well as helps people opt for advanced sodium carbonate products. The growing demands for steel, electricity, and aluminum due to the growing industrialization has resulted in the growth of the mining sector.

The U.S. market for sodium carbonate also result in increased demand from the domestic mining sectors which also exceeded USD 20 million in 2022. This creates lucrative growth opportunities for the sodium carbonate market owing to the beneficiation of product & processing of mineral ore and multiple metals such as steel & cobalt. Furthermore, the enhanced ability of soda ash to augment the reactions of dyes with the presence of fiber, which allow permanent dye fixation is expected to drive the adoption of the dye, textile, and leather sectors.

Further, glass manufacturing is also sub-segmented into container glasses as well as flat glass. Also, chemical manufacturing is further sub-segmented on the basis of the carbonate chemical and sodium chemical. Also, glass manufacturing is also expected to dominate the sodium carbonate market in 2022 due to growing constructions of residential as well as non-residential constructions. The augmented usage of flat glass is also anticipated to accelerate the growth of the sodium carbonate market. On the basis of geography, the North American region has emerged as the leading market for sodium carbonate due to the huge presence of the market players which contributed to the advanced processing of the sodium carbonate metals in this region due to the availability of the latest healthcare facilities provided by the government.

Market Dynamics:


The growing adoption of soda Ashes from soap & detergent industries has emerged as a major driving force for the growth of the sodium carbonate market. Additionally, the factors such as the augmented growth of key industries such as the metallurgical and chemical industry as well as the increasing research and development initiatives conducted by leading market players to introduce modern technology adoption in processing plant has driven the growth of the market to great heights.


Lack of awareness among the population regarding the alternative options in the sodium carbonate market has hindered the growth of the market to a great extent. Additionally, the increased usage of alternative options such as plastics, recycled glass, and related products has noticed rapid expansion which has also restrained the growth of the sodium carbonate market during the forecast period.


Emerging underdeveloped countries such as Brazil and India have proved to be the major opportunities for the sodium carbonate market due to the advanced processing facilities which has been provided to people which encourage them to opt for the technologies. The increasing numbers of sodium carbonate products by providing great opportunities to the major market players. The backup and funding provided by the government in the form of compensation has boosted the economy for the sodium carbonate market. Additionally, the huge spending made by key market players with the view of launching advanced processing facilities as well as soap and detergent products into the market emerged as the major opportunity.

Challenges :

The high cost of processing and mining the sodium carbonate through mineral ores and metals made it impossible for common individuals to adopt such technologies which also challenges the market growth during the projected period. The traditional dry powder is the key end-user for soda ash, with improved adoptions of liquid detergents which hampered the growth of the sodium carbonate market due to sole dependence on specific industries.

Recent Developments:
