Considering an instance, in October 2019, Bondalti reinforced an international setting with the establishment of its new factory in Torrelvega, Spain. The factory has an installed capacity of 68,000 tons/year and it focuses on hydrochloric acid, caustic soda, chlorine, and sodium hypochlorite production.

In light of similar advancements, the sodium hypochlorite market size is expected to surpass a valuation of USD 295 million through 2027.

This expansion is attributed to the mounting demand for sanitizing and disinfectant products in Europe impelled by the outbreak of coronavirus. These products have recorded an escalating adoption in countries like France, the UK, and Germany.

Europe has strict regulations with regards to the production and disposal of wastewater, which creates favorable conditions for reinforcing the demand for sodium hypochlorite solution in the region.

The chemical has a disinfectant efficiency that is similar to that of chlorine. Additionally, NaOCl is relatively cheap, kills majority of live pathogens in water, and has a long shelf-life. Owing to these factors, the material finds increasing application in the treatment of drinking water through water processing.

The treatment mainly targets cyanotoxins and E.coli, which are present in water owing to production and fecal contamination by cyanobacteria.

Multiple uses of sodium hypochlorite

Owing to destaining properties, the chemical finds increasing application in household cleaning purposes and is an ingredient in deodorizing products and laundry detergents. In addition, NaOCl is also used in food, chemical, and glass factories, as well as in pharmaceutical and waste disposal industries.

The solution can be utilized for bleaching textiles and for the reduction of odors in industrial wastewater and is utilized around the world in municipal water treatment and industrial applications, making water clean and safe for drinking.

What challenges are anticipated to impact NaOCl demand in the coming years?

Showering in water treated by sodium hypochlorite is likely to aggravate a person’s scalp and skin, particularly among those with pre-existence of skin conditions such as eczema. This might also affect a pre-existing lung condition like asthma, as when one breathes in steam containing the chemical and its byproducts, that could settle in one’s airways.

In addition, sodium hypochlorite must be stored correctly as it loses potency upon coming in contact with air. It is still a corrosive and dangerous chemical and is likely to produce harmful byproducts when utilized as a disinfectant in municipal drinking water.
