Calcium Hypochlorite Market Segmentation

Grand View Research has segmented the global calcium hypochlorite market on the basis of process, form, application, and region:


Based on the Process Insights, the market is segmented into Calcium Process and Sodium Process

  • The sodium process segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 19% in 2020 and is anticipated to remain dominant over the forecast period. This high share is credited to the rising demand for calcium hypochlorite having high chlorine content and which absorbs moisture quickly. It is a chemical compound that can be produced through the calcium process and the sodium process.
  • Calcium hypochlorite made from calcium process is mainly used for bleaching cloth, wood pulp, fiber, silk, etc. Sodium process product is widely used in environmental applications with stricter water quality requirements, such as disinfection of homes, swimming pools, and drinking water. It is stored in steel or plastic drums and woven bags with a plastic bag inside them. Such kind of packaging makes the product less vulnerable to decomposition and leak-proof.
  • Similar to the calcium process, the sodium process is also used in water treatment, sanitation, and aquaculture applications. Furthermore, the products made by the calcium process are widely used in water treatment applications for epidemic prevention and aquaculture promotion.


Based on the Form Insights, the market is segmented into Powder, Granular, and Pellets

  • The powder form segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 14% in 2020 and is projected to remain dominant over the forecast period. This high share is attributed to the growing use of powder form in numerous end-user applications on account of its texture. It is a mixture of calcium chloride and lime, which is sold as bleach or chlorine powder.
  • The granular form of calcium hypochlorite is used to sanitize water. It acts as a strong disinfectant and helps kill almost 99.9% of the microorganisms including viruses, bacteria, and mildew. It also makes potable water healthy and clean for consumption.


Based on the Application Insights, the market is segmented into Detergents, Agrochemicals, House Cleaners, Water Treatment, Food & Beverages, Textiles, Pulp & Paper, and Others

  • The water treatment application segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020 and is projected to remain dominant over the forecast period. This high share is attributed to the growing product usage in water treatment plants, especially after the outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide.
  • It is used in tanks as a sanitizer to control the growth of mold. It is also widely used as an active ingredient in scouring powders, bleaches, and dishwashing compounds among others. Its consumption is growing rapidly in house cleaners as it has a higher content of chlorineand better stability compared to any other substitute.
  • The product demand is rising in the food & beverages industry as it is an affordable and reliable sanitizing equipment and maintains the taste and quality of carbonated beverages. It is also used to disinfect and prevent infection in wineries and ensure the quality of the product. In the textile industry, it acts as a bleaching agent and is used to remove impurities from linen and equipment surfaces.
