Global Chlor Alkali Market- Global Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts up to 2022

Chlor Alkali chemicals are the ones produced by electrolysis of sodium chloride (Brine solution). The market is broadly categorized into three segments namely Caustic Soda (NaOH), Chlorine & Soda Ash (Sodium Bicarbonate) which are collectively known as chlor alkali chemicals. These chemicals are usually basic in nature and fall under the category of bulk chemicals. The main application areas of chlor Alkali chemicals are in soap & detergent industry, paper and pulp, textiles, water treatment, plastic industry, industrial solvents, alumina, pharmaceuticals etc.

Globally the demand for alkali chemicals is rising due to increase in the volume consumption for caustic soda for alumina industry. Since the refining process of alumina significantly requires caustic soda, hence the market of caustic soda is expected to witness a growth in the upcoming 6 years. Similarly, the demand for other alkali chemicals like chlorine and soda ash are being driven by their significant consumption in water treatment and detergent industry respectively.

The regional demand for chlor alkali is consistently growing, especially in the Asia Pacific area. This growth is supported by lucrative, fast-growing technological industries and the growing manufacturing market in these regions. Currently, Asia Pacific is the global leader in the chlor alkali market from the demand side. China and Japan have built an advantage of having most of the manufacturing and consumption market, thus providing the maximum contribution in the global chlor alkali market. And from the supplier side North America followed by Europe are the market leaders in the chlor alkali market.
