Potassium sulphate (also called sulphate of potash (SOP)) can be produced both from primary sources such as salt mixtures obtained from brines, and secondary sources including the Mannheim process, sulphate salts reaction, and the Ochoa process; the latter is expected to become one of the lowest-cost methods globally. Currently, around 70% of the world’s potassium sulphate is produced from secondary sources. SDIC Xinjiang Luobupo Potash Co., Ltd., Tessenderlo Group and K+S KALI GmbH dominate potassium sulphate production. SDIC harvests sulphate of potash from natural brine deposits in China.

Geography-wise, APAC is currently the largest potassium sulphate producer, making up over 50% of the total SOP supply. The region is also the dominant SOP consumer, whose share of global demand is anticipated to increase in the years to come.
