Chlor-Alkali Market Research Report: By Product Type (Caustic Soda, Soda Ash, and Chlorine), Application (Organic Chemicals, Food, Paper & Pulp, Metallurgy, Isocyanates & Oxygenates, EDC/PVC, Water Treatment, Textiles, Soaps & Detergents, and Others), and Region - Forecast till 2025

As per Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis, the Global Chlor-Alkali Market is projected to reach a value of USD 110 Billion with a CAGR of 5.0% from 2017 to 2025 (forecast period). The report provides accurate insights into the different segments, such as market share, value, revenue, and COVID-19 impact on the Global Chlor-Alkali Market.

Chlor-Alkali is a scientific method for the production of chlorine, soda ash, caustic soda, and its derivatives. The procedure is followed by electrolysis of saltwater. Of the three products, caustic soda is the largest segment of the product type, followed by chlorine. High demand for caustic soda is due to wide applications in food processing and pulp & paper. The processing of Chlor-Alkali includes three types of electrolytic processes — mercury cell process, membrane cell process, and diaphragm cell process.

Key Players:

Some of the significant participants operating in the Global Chlor-Alkali Market are Solvay SA (Belgian), Axiall Corporation (US), Akzo Nobel NV (The Netherlands), Olin Corporation (US), Tosoh Corporation (Japan), Bayer AG (Germany), Tata Chemicals Ltd (India), Tronox Limited (US), Covestro AG (Germany), and Xinjiang Zhongtai Chemical Co. Ltd (China).

Market Dynamics:

The global market for Chlor-Alkali is driven by growing demand for chlorine and its derivatives, especially from the petrochemical industry, for products such as PVC, Chloro-Methane / HCFC / PTFE, Propylene Oxide / Glycol, Epichlorohydrin, Polycarbonate, Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) and Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI), CaCl2, Titanium Oxide, etc. In addition, rapid urbanization, rising disposable income, and population growth are projected to increase demand for Chloro-Alkali products during the forecast period.
