    Market Insights

    Persulfates Market is likely to grow from USD 778.19 million in 2021 to USD 989.58 million by 2028 at a healthy CAGR of 3.44% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

    Persulfates Market Size

    What is persulfate?

    Persulfates are the inorganic compounds readily soluble in water and are prepared by electrolysis of their analogous sulfates at high current density and low temperature. On account of oxidation, persulfate when dissolved in water produces acidic solution. Persulfates act as strong oxidants with a temperate shelf life and they can be very economical to use when they are stored properly.

    Market Drivers

    The growth of the market for persulfates is attributed to their use for diverse functions across various end-use industries. They find extensive use as free radical generator, oxidizers, and chain initiators in polymer manufacturing. Further, in the electronics industry, they are being used as cleaning agents and as etchants, which is another growth driver, apart from being also employed in the preparations of hair care and skin care products in the cosmetics & personal care industry. Surge in these application areas is expected to bolster the consumption of persulfates in these end-use industries, which in turn, is likely to drive the market during the forecast period.
