Regional Analysis

The Asia-Pacific sodium hydrosulfite market is projected to be the leading regional market during the forecast period, owing to the healthy growth of the pulp and paper industry in the South-East Asian economies such as China, South Korea, and Japan. In addition, the region has a competitive advantage over other regions due to availability of fast-growing eucalyptus as pulp raw material and major investments for the setup of new pulp mills in the region. For instance, in January 2019, Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), one of the largest manufacturers of pulp and paper in Asia-Pacific, announced an investment of approximately USD 3.5 billion, in its pulp and paper manufacturing unit at Ravuru, Andhra Pradesh, India. This project will be the largest unit of APP at a single location with an annual production capacity of 5 million metric tons. This is likely to boost the demand for sodium hydrosulfite for bleaching purpose and thus propel the growth of the regional market during the review period. The textile industry in the region is expected to register healthy growth in the years to follow, with major contributions from India and China. In 2017, China was the largest exporter of textiles globally, and India ranked third in this list, and the trend is likely to continue in the following years. The Indian textile sector is projected to witness high growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to the strong multi-fiber base (availability of cotton, silk, jute, and wool), large-scale investments, rising disposable income of individuals, and initiatives by the government. This is expected to fuel demand for the product in the textile industry and thus favor the growth of the regional market in the years to follow.
