Sodium Nitrate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The sodium nitrate prices surged in the first quarter of 2023, as the trend was supported by the rise in market activities and replenishment of inventories. The rise in feedstock prices also supported the hike in the market activities of sodium nitrate prices. The demand from the downstream industries also helped the production rates to rise as the Chinese economy made a strong comeback after the Lunar holidays and covid phase.

However, the market activities fell significantly in the second quarter due to a steep fall in demand from domestic and international consumers. The trade activities were also hampered, attributed to the fall in feedstock costs and decline in the movement of beverages, cosmetics, and preservatives sectors that eventually led to the decline in the price trend of sodium nitrate.


The sodium nitrate price trend surged in the first quarter of 2023 with support from the pharmaceutical and other related industries. Even the falling cost of nitric acid did not hamper the progress of the sodium nitrate market as the prices of another feedstock, sodium bicarbonate, surged. But the market activities in the second quarter were hit by the depreciating cost of feedstocks, ample supply of material, and falling demand from the downstream industries. The cost of energy and slow economic activities were other factors that hampered the price trend of sodium nitrate.

North America

A stable and stagnant approach was adopted by the sodium nitrate market in the North American sector, supported by the demand and high number of purchases from the pharmaceuticals and other related end-user industries, but the second quarter did not support this trajectory. The overall market conditions gradually worsened with the quarter as the procurement from the end-user industries declined significantly. The dipping oil costs and falling economic conditions further caused the price trend of sodium nitrate to fall into the negative zone.

Production Processes

Under proper temperature and pressure, sodium hydroxide and nitric acid are combined to produce sodium nitrate compound. This reaction is the first step in the process. It is an exothermic reaction that produces a high temperature as it proceeds.

When sodium hydroxide reacts with ammonium nitrate under a controlled atmosphere, the breakdown reaction starts and gives sodium nitrate as the final product.
