April 18, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Chlor-Alkali Market Report by Product (Caustic Soda, Chlorine, Soda Ash, and Others), Production Process (Membrane Cell, Diaphragm Cell, and Others), Application (Pulp and Paper, Organic Chemical, Inorganic Chemical, Soap and Detergent, Alumina, Textile, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global chlor-alkali market reached a value of US$ 70.2 Billion in 2023. 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.

Global Chlor-Alkali Market Trends:

The increasing demand for chlor-alkali products, such as chlorine, soda ash, and caustic soda and its derivatives as a necessary raw material across industries represents the one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. In line with this, they are widely used to make dyes, paper, textiles, bleached paper products, and synthesize many organic and inorganic chemicals. Furthermore, the widespread product utilization in the medical and healthcare industry for chlorination of water distribution systems used in hemodialysis centers, cleaning of surfaces, decontamination of medical waste and disinfection of laundry are propelling the market growth. Apart from this, various technological advancements, such as the utilization of membrane cell technology that assists in saving energy, reducing energy consumption and producing high purity caustic solutions, are providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the increasing product demand for the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is widely used in the construction industry for producing frames, pipes and windows, is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the significant growth in the automobile industry and the increasing utilization of chlor-alkali for water treatment applications, especially during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 104.3 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% during 2024-2032.
