About This Report


The Salt Extraction industry has been subject to a great deal of volatility over five years through 2014-15. Severe winter weather conditions drove peaks in industry revenue because demand for rock salt to de-ice roads was high. Other products, including white salt and brine, fared worse over much of the period. This was primarily caused by poor economic conditions damaging demand from inorganic chemical production, which is a major market for these products. Britain's supply of salt fell short during periods of extreme weather, causing imports to grow considerably, even satisfying over one-third of domestic demand in 2011-12.

Firms in this industry extract salt from mines and brine pits. This includes extracting salt from underground by dissolving and pumping, the evaporation of seawater and crushing, purifying and refining salt. The industry does not include the processing of salt into food-grade salt or the production of drinking water from the evaporation of brine.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
