Global Potash Ore Market-Industry Analysis and Forecast (2019-2027)

Potash ore is the primary source for manufacturing potash, which is used in chemicals and fertilizers. Usually, it consists of potassium chloride, sodium chloride, silicate anhydrate, and carbonate. Potash ore is processed with numerous methods including chemical processes with hot leaching, and mechanical methods, like floatation. In the chemical method, potash ore is processed by hot leaching, followed by crystallization potash salts from unsaturated salt brines. This method is dependent upon physiochemical properties of potassium chloride, sodium chloride, & water, and used for manufacturing potassium compounds in granular and white crystalline form. Also, in the floatation method halite and sylvite surfaces are moistened with water by the addition of acting chemicals namely surfactants. Potash finds major applications in the fertilizer industry as potassium the third major plant and crop nutrient after phosphorus and nitrogen. As elemental potassium is not available in nature, because of its violent reactive nature with water, potash ores have high demand.
