Future Prospects: Chlor-Alkali Market Size and Expert Insights | Review & Demand

Posted by Stephen Lobo on October 3rd, 2023

What is chlor-alkali industry? 

The chlor-alkali industry is a sector that produces chlorine and alkali (mainly sodium hydroxide) through the electrolysis of salt (NaCl) in a solution, typically using a mercury cell or a membrane cell process. These chemicals are used as raw materials in a wide range of products, including bleach, soap, plastic, and other household and industrial products.

Chlor-Alkali Market Scope

The chlor-alkali market refers to the production and sale of chlorine and alkali products such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), potassium hydroxide, and hydrogen. These products are used in a variety of industries such as chemical manufacturing, water treatment, food processing, textiles, soaps & detergents, and others. The demand for these products is driven by increasing industrialization, population growth, and rising urbanization. The growth of the chlor-alkali market is also influenced by factors such as technological advancements, increasing demand for high-quality products, and increasing investment in research and development.

The exact value of the global chlor-alkali market is difficult to determine as it is subject to fluctuations and can change over time. However, it was estimated to be worth around USD 63.2 billion in 2021 and and is projected to reach USD 77.4 billion by 2026, growing at a cagr 4.1% from 2021 to 2026.
