Global Chlor-Alkali Market to Reach US$ 85.8 Million by 2027, Impelled by the Rising Demand for Organic and Inorganic Chemicals Across Sectors

Published on Apr 18, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Chlor-Alkali Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the Global Chlor-Alkali market reached a value of US$ 63.2 Million in 2021. Chlor-alkali refers to a chemical combination of chlorine and caustic soda formed by the electrolysis of sodium chloride solution. It is commonly used to produce chlorine and sodium-based products, such as chlorosulphonic acid, bleaching powder, hydrogen gas, chlorinated paraffin and polyaluminum chloride. Diaphragm cell, membrane cell and mercury cell process are some of the commonly used methods to produce chlor-alkali. It is widely used in the water purification processes, manufacturing plastics and resins, and producing pure silicon, which is further used in electronic components and solar panels. As a result, chlor-alkali finds extensive application across chemicals, paper and pulp, pharmaceuticals, textile, and beauty and personal care industries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
