The Oman sodium hydroxide market reached a volume of 138,610 Metric Tons in 2018. Caustic soda, also known as sodium hydroxide (NaOH), refers to an inorganic compound which comprises sodium cations Na+ and hydroxide anions OH−. It is industrially prepared through the electrolytic chlor-alkali process in which electrolysis of aqueous sodium chloride solution produces chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide. It is an odorless and non-flammable white solid which is commercially available in the form of flakes, pellets, granules and aqueous solutions of different concentrations.
Major factor driving the market of sodium hydroxide in Oman region is increasing use of NaOH in number of industries including chemical, automotive, water treatment, and food and beverage. Oman being one of the Gulf region’s fastest growing economies has growing industries in this region therefore accelerated the demand of caustic soda in this region. Moreover, on account of its easy availability and affordability over its substitutes, it is regarded as one of the preferred chemical compounds employed to control acidity and remove heavy metals from water. Moreover, NaOH costs less than its alternative available which is potassium hydroxide. Therefore, it is economical to use sodium hydroxide than its alternative. It is available commercially in various forms such as liquid, solid, flakes, or particles. Wide accessibility and availability of the product in Oman region has further driven the market of NaOH. Caustic soda is also used in the production of paper wherein it helps in dissolving unwanted compounds present in the wood pulp.
