Global chlor-alkali market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2019-2024, reaching nearly $ 104 billion by 2024, primarily driven by extensive growth in end user industries and existing production facilities. However, energy-intensive operations as well as the adverse effects of chlor-alkali on the environment are anticipated to hamper market growth in coming years.

Market for chlor-alkali has been segmented into form, technology, product type, application and region. Based on form, the market has been categorized into caustic soda flakes and caustic soda lye, while based on technology, the market has been segmented into membrane cell and mercury. In terms of product type, the market has been bifurcated into chlorine, caustic soda, soda ash, HCl, hydrogen and others. Among all the applications of chlorine, EDC/PVC accounts for the largest market share, while isocyanate is the fastest-growing application of chlorine and is anticipated to continue being the fastest-growing application segment during the forecast period. Strong demand from the construction sector and increasing demand for chemicals from emerging markets are the main drivers for growth of the chlorine segment.

Furthermore, food and pulp & paper hold the largest share among all the applications of caustic soda. The growth in the market for the food processing in turn is aiding the market for caustic soda that is used in food and pulp & paper. With growing container and glass packaging industry, the demand for soda ash in glass applications is increasing. Moreover, demand for soda ash in glass is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate in the Asia-Pacific region, as a result strong demand from countries, particularly from Southeast Asia.

Asia-Pacific is the largest chlor-alkali market across the globe, regarded as the largest producer of chlor-alkali. Among the countries within the region, China is both the largest and fastest growing chlor-alkali market. Due to the constant increase in chlor-alkali capacity, the Asian country has an advantage, as the manufacturing costs within the country are minimal. India is another high growth market for chlor-alkali in the Asia-Pacific region and is anticipated to be a driving factor for the industry in the region.

Some of the key players operating in the market include Olin Corporation, Solvay SA, Tata Chemicals Limited, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Axiall Corporation, Akzonobel N.V., Formosa Plastics Corporation, Hanwha Chemical Corporation, Tosoh Corporation, Nirma Limited, among others.
