“Chlor-Alkali Market Research Report- Forecast to 2022”
Global Chlor-Alkali market is projected to reach USD XX million by 2022 and is estimated to reach CAGR of XX % by 2022. Global Chlor-Alkali market is segment based on product and application. Chlor- Alkali by product are soda ash, caustic soda, chlorine gas and others.

Chlor-Alkali Market Overview

Chlor-alkali is an industrial process that simultaneously produces alkali and chlorine as a result of the electrolysis of a saltwater. Chlor-alkali industry is one of the largest electrochemical technologies in the world. The most common chlor-alkali chemicals are chlorine and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) but can also include potassium hydroxide and muriatic acid. Chlor-alkali is used in manufacturing an extensive range of products. These products are implemented in pulp and paper manufacturing, making detergents, pesticides, medicines, herbicides, deodorants, disinfectants, plastics, aluminum processing, production of hydrogenated fats, and water purification. Chlor-alkali finds wide application in the electrolysis of sodium chloride. It is a technique used to produce chlorine and sodium hydroxide. Both chlorine and sodium hydroxide have high demand in the commodity chemicals industry.

Rising demand of the automobile industry coupled with the construction sector substantially drives the global chlor-alkali market. Additionally, the increasing demand for food, pulp and paper industries boost the market to a large extent.

Despite the diverse utility of the chlor-alkali industry, the pollution caused by mercury released from the chlor-alkali plants has been a source of major environmental concerns. In order to reduce the harm caused to the environment, global producers are shifting their focus towards incorporating membrane cell technology in manufacturing chlor-alkali. Owing to the hazardous properties of mercury, the government often intervenes the global chlor-alkali market with stringent rules. Furthermore, the industry lags in terms of standardization. Besides, huge energy consumption by the industry impact the environment adversely which can be reduced by the integration of pre-existing technologies.

Market Segmentation:

Globally, the Chlor-Alkali market has been segmented based on product and application.

Based on application the market has been segmented into organic chemicals, soaps & detergents, food, organic chemicals, paper & pulp, and others.

Based on product, the Chlor-alkali market has been segmented into soda ash, caustic soda, chlorine gas, and others. Soda ash is prepared by the usage of the process of Solvay. Whereas, chlorine and caustic soda are prepared through electrolysis of sodium chloride (NaCl).

Regional Analysis:

The global Chlor-Alkali market has been segmented into regions such as Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World.

Globally, Asia-Pacific represents a dominant share in the Chlor-Alkali market both in terms of value and volume. The market is likely to develop with its rise over the forecast period. Owing to factors such as low-cost raw materials, the high manufacturing rate of Chlor-Alkali products, availability of cheap labor, and rapid industrialization, the global Chlor-Alkali market is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace. China is the major revenue generating nation in the Asia-Pacific region. China’s emergence as the largest producer of chlor-alkali/vinyl globally, and its application in the acetylene process to produce VCM, have had a significant influence on the industry’s global and regional demand and supply balances. However, the investors in the market face major issues related to access to competitive power and salt and the availability of lime and coal. North America and Europe stand in the second and third position, respectively, owing to the low production level of Chlor-Alkali products as compared to other developing economies. North America is one of the most robust markets wherein the chlor-alkali industry is likely to undergo rapid development. The North American Chlor-Alkali market is dominated by factors such as high growth witnessed in the end-user segments of this market, and prevailing high production capacities of chlor-alkali products.

Key Players:

The Global Chlor-Alkali Market has been dominated by key players such as Bayer Material Sciences AG, AkzoNobel NV, Tata Chemicals Ltd, Dow Chemicals, Olin Corporation, Axiall Corporation, Nirma Limited, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Solvay S.A., Occidental Petroleum Corporation, and others.
