Sodium Hydrosulfite(SHS) is also known as Hydrosulphite Concentrate or Sodium Dithionite or Sodium Hydrosulphite (Na2S2O4). It is a white or grayish-white powder, free from visible foreign particles with a pungent odor. It is classifiable under the custom codes 28311010 and 28321020.
Sodium Hydrosulfite is extensively used in many fields, such as textile and paper industries. The demand for sodium hydrosulfite as a reducing agent in the synthesis of kaolin and metakaolin has been rising rapidly, which will provide new growth opportunities for the sodium hydrosulfite market. It is used to improve the brightness of kaolin and is used in the manufacture of paper, ceramics, paints and coatings, glass fibers, plastics, rubber, and cement.
In the paper manufacturing process, sodium hydrosulfite is commonly used as a reductive bleaching agent for pulp. Most of the demand for paper products comes from the packaging industry, which has been booming since the past decade. Easily available raw materials, low labor costs, and the presence of many paper and pulp manufacturers will promote the development of the paper products industry in the Asia-Pacific region, which will also further promote the development of the global sodium hydrosulfite market.
The gradual decline in North American and Western European paper and cardboard production capacity may have a negative impact on the growth of the global sodium hydrosulfite market. The main reason for the decline in production capacity is the increasing level of digitization in the region, which has led to a decrease in the demand for paper and paper products. In 2016, North American paper and paperboard production capacity were 79.6 million tons, and by 2024 it may drop to about 70 million tons. Meanwhile, In 2016, Western European paper and paperboard production capacity exceeded 88.2 million tons and is expected to drop to less than 80 million tons in 2024.
