Potassium hydroxide is an inorganic compound with the formula KOH, and is commonly called caustic potash. Along with sodium hydroxide (NaOH), this colorless solid is a prototypical strong base. It has many industrial and niche applications, most of which exploit its corrosive nature and its reactivity toward acids. An estimated 700,000 to 800,000 tonnes were produced in 2005. Approximately 100 times more NaOH than KOH is produced annually. KOH is noteworthy as the precursor to most soft and liquid soaps as well as numerous potassium-containing chemicals. Potassium Carbonate Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) is a white salt, soluble in water (insoluble in ethanol) which forms a strongly alkaline solution. It can be made as the product of potassium hydroxide's absorbent reaction with carbon dioxide. It is deliquescent, often appearing a damp or wet solid. Potassium carbonate is used in the production of soap and glass. Potassium Permanganate Potassium permanganate is an inorganic chemical compound and medication. As a medication it is used for cleaning wounds and dermatitis. It has the chemical formula KMnO4 and is a salt consisting of K+ and MnO?4 ions. It is a strong oxidizing agent. It dissolves in water to give intensely pink or purple solutions, the evaporation of which leaves prismatic purplish-black glistening crystals. In 2000, worldwide production was estimated at 30,000 tonnes. In this compound, manganese is in the +7 oxidation state. Dyestuff Used in the production of anthraquinone, vat dyes like indanthrene golden orange, indanthrene red, indanthrene blue etc., indigoid dyes, rhodamine B and dye intermediates like J-acid, Chicago acid and diethyl m amino phenol. Petroleum Refining Petroleum refining processes are the chemical engineering processes and other facilities used in petroleum refineries (also referred to as oil refineries) to transform crude oil into useful products such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil and fuel oils. Potassium Formate Potassium formate, HCO2K (or KHCOO), is the potassium salt of formic acid. This white solid is an intermediate in the formate potash process for the production of potassium. Potassium formate has also been studied as a potential environmentally friendly deicing salt for use on roads. Combination of caustic potash solution and formic acid results in the deicer potassium formate. Compared with other defrosting products, potassium formate is the more efficient solution on icy runways and also has better adhesive qualities.Moreover, chlorides are eliminated in the electrolytical production of caustic potash, meaning that this deicing agent is minimally corrosive, which is good for the aircraft. Market Outlook The demand for caustic potash is driven by the performance of the application sectors such as dyestuff, pharmaceutical as well as potassium based chemicals / salts particularly potassium carbonate. Indian demand for caustic potash (Period from April 2015 to March 2016) Around 60,000 metric tonne per annum. Potassium hydroxide or caustic potash is one of the potassium compounds widely used in non-fertilizer applications (mainly potassium carbonate and potassium phosphates) Global potassium hydroxide market grows at CAGR of 4.5%, capacity utilization rates are around 87-89%. The global potassium permanganate market is further expected to reach a value of around US$ 1023 Million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of more than 11% during 2017-2022. Global demand 2.2 million metric tonne per annum. Global Installed Capacity Installed capacity of KOH 2.5 million metric tonne per annum There are production sites that can swing between the production of KOH and NaOH [caustic soda] as needed by the demand supply scenario in the market.
