World demand to rise 1.5% annually through 2018
Global demand for salt is forecast to climb 1.5 percent annually through 2018 to 324 million metric tons. Salt consumption growth in the Asia/Pacific region is projected to outpace the global average and offset flat trends expected in North America and Western Europe. Ongoing expansion in China’s chemical manufacturing industry will underpin overall advances. Salt suppliers are also projected to benefit from increases in North America’s chlor-alkali output, spurred by low natural gas prices in the region.
