Chlor-Alkali Market Insights, Forecast to 2025



The procedure utilized in the manufacture of chlorine, caustic soda, and other sodium and chlorine-based derivatives or products like chlorinated paraffin, hydrochloric acid, bleaching powder, sodium hypochlorite, and hydrogen gas is called Chlor-Alkali. The procedure involves the creation of the products as mentioned above through the electrolysis of sodium chloride solution. Caustic soda, chlorine gas, and soda ash are the primary products of the chlor-alkali sector.


The food and paper industries, augmented use in the pulp, increased requirements in the automobile and construction sector are the major drivers contributing to the growth of this market. Manufacturers are focusing and setting up facilities to make allied products proficiently as increasing gradation and industrialization are taking place to make chlorine. To reduce the harm to the environment almost all the procedures in the world are shifting their center of attention towards making Chlor-Alkali chemicals by the use of membrane cell technology.

Noteworthy investments are expected to happen in the booming alumina industry during the forecast period. With the boost in the alumina market, the boost in caustic soda market is set to happen with caustic soda being the raw material used in the refining procedure of alumina. This will even boost the market for the Chlor-Alkali chemical industry in the extended run.

Global Chlor-Alkali market size will increase to 147800 Million US$ by 2025, from 97000 Million US$ in 2018, at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. 

In this study, 2018 has been considered as the base year and 2019 to 2025 as the forecast period to estimate the market size for Chlor-Alkali.

The environmental impact taking place through the procedure is the initial major challenge for the industry. The emission of carbon and mercury are the reasons for concerns. However, the procedure is an extremely energy-intensive process, and the augmented energy demand is expected to hamper the expansion.

Caustic soda and soda ash are the segregations of the Chlor-Alkali sector based on the products segment. The primary function for chlorine is polyvinyl chloride including organic chemicals, for soda ash. It’s mainly applied in the glass market whereas the caustic soda is mainly applied in the areas of inorganic chemicals and the paper industry. Soda ash is mainly produced by utilizing the Solvay procedure. Chlorine and caustic soda are generated by the process of electrolysis by a mercury cell.

With the increase in demand in emerging countries such as India and China, the Chlor-Alkali industry is expected to register a remarkable growth. Even the growing requirement in the application industries such as inorganic and organic chemicals is expected to boost the chlor-alkali market over the forecast period.

The high production of Chlor-Alkali derivatives and products is also boosting the growth of the market. Besides, the development of technology utilized in the procedure to create it environmentally practicable and less energy concentrated is expected to give the industry a big boost over the forecast period.

With the demand for Chlor-Alkali in different industries, North America is expected to capture maximum revenue over the forecast period. Europe is expected to be followed by North America in the forecast period.
