Persulfates Market Research: Industry Challenges & Forecast

Persulfates are the most chemically active form of the peroxygens, with great utility in a variety of chemical processes. They have the highest oxidation potential of all per oxygen compounds, which include permaganates. Due to these outstanding chemical properties, persulfates are the major initiator type for water-based polymerization and they are used in a large variety of applications beyond polymers. Persulfates are key components in many industrial processes and commercial products. The polymer industry uses aqueous solutions of persulfates as initiators in the polymerization of latex and synthetic rubber. The electronics industry considers sodium persulfate an efficient micro etchant in the manufacture of printed circuit boards. The global persulfates market size is estimated to grow from USD 730 million in 2020 to USD 861 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2025.


The global persulfates market is witnessing significant growth owing to rising demand from the cosmetics and personal care industry. The cosmetic industry has developed formulations which use persulfates to boost hair bleaching performance. Moreover, persulfates are used in the sizing of paper, preparation of binders and coatings, and production of special papers. They are oxidizing agents in the preparation of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, quinones, and a variety of other compounds. The pharmaceutical industry uses sodium persulfate as a reagent in the preparation of antibiotics. Furthermore, surging market penetration in emerging countries and usage in the food industry would further provide significant growth opportunities to this market.
