Sodium carbonate is an inorganic salt of sodium and carbonic acid. It is also called as soda ash, soda crystal and washing soda. It is white, odourless, hygroscopic, amorphous solid soluble in water and most of the solvent. It is used as common water softener domestically. Sodium carbonate is present naturally and can be mined for consumption. It can also produce by sodium chloride and limestone through ‘Solvay process.’ Sodium carbonate has low toxicity, however long-term contact by skin and eye or inhalation of dust may cause irritation. Ingestion of sodium carbonate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, stomach ache and nausea. Carbon dioxide is release when sodium carbonate is reacted with acids.
The North America sodium carbonate is witnessing lucrative growth during forecast period 2021 to 2027.

The rise prevalence of hygienic protocols is also refuelling growth of sodium carbonate during the COVID-19 pandemics.
The North America sodium carbonate market is segmented by product type, end user industries and country.
The North America sodium carbonate market is comprised of product types like natural and synthetic. In which natural is also contributing in the growth of North America sodium carbonate market. Owing to rising focus on sustainability the natural product type segment is witnessing growth. Rising preference for natural ingredients is also refuelling the growth of North America sodium carbonate market. Owing to reduced emission and less energy requirement for production there is increased consumer preferences towards the natural soda ash. This makes them more demandable in the market.
The North America sodium carbonate market is comprised of end user industries like glass manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, paper manufacturing, detergent and soaps, water treatment and softening and mining. The glass manufacturing is sub-segmented into flat glass, container glass. Likewise, chemicals manufacturing is also sub-segmented into sodium chemicals and carbonate chemicals. In which water treatment and softening is also contributing in the growth of North America sodium carbonate market. The sodium carbonate used for softening of temporary as well as permanent hardness of water. The calcium ions come from the hard water and carbonate ions from the washing soda.
The North America sodium carbonate market is studied for countries such as US, Mexico and Canada. In which US is anticipated to dominate the market in 2020. The rising mergers and acquisitions and capacity adding is propelling growth of North America sodium carbonate market. The rising economic developments is also refuelling the growth of North America sodium carbonate market. The growing industrial exigency is also contributing in the growth North America sodium carbonate market.
