Common salt, also known as sodium chloride, is employed in several sectors, including the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and processed food industries. Dialysis or kidney transplants are used to treat end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients.

However, compared to the frequently used dialysis operation, the rate of kidney transplants is relatively low because there are not enough kidney donors available, in addition to several other medical conditions.

Market Dynamic


Oral drug delivery has generated superior outcomes for manufacturers and end-users as a route of drug administration because of its high patient compliance, cost-effectiveness, lower sterility, constraints, flexibility in the design of dosage forms, and ease of production. The need for matrix tablets is crucial for controlled and sustained-release dosage forms. Matrix pills are frequently made using sodium chloride of the pharmaceutical grade.

The need for innovation and research will be fueled by the ongoing rise in stress- and lifestyle-related disorders among Indians, leading to the creation of novel drug-delivery technologies. As a result, the market for innovative drug formulations will expand.


It is anticipated that stringent government restrictions, certifications, and low profitability will impede industry expansion. The pharmaceutical-grade sodium chloride market is expected to have difficulties developing new technologies and advancements over the forecast period.


It is anticipated that both established market players and recent entrants will benefit from the high purchasing power of consumers in developing nations and the rising demand for pure, certified salt. The pharmaceutical-grade sodium chloride market is anticipated to expand through several joint ventures and expansions, as well as increased demand from injections, dialysis, and pharmaceutical formulations.
