Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Chlor Alkali demand stood at 90 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 137.4 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 4.35% until 2030. Chlor Alkali  is a chemical process that is used to manufacture various chemicals including chlorine, caustic soda, soda ash, and other sodium and chlorine-based derivatives. There are mainly two types of processes involved in Chlor Alkali  namely membrane cell and diaphragm cell process. Chlor Alkali chemicals have a wide range of application areas including alumina, pulp and paper, organic chemical, inorganic chemical, detergent and soap, textile, and others. Growing demand for caustic soda and its derivatives coupled with the rising demand for chlorine from various industries is expected to drive the demand for Chlor Alkali  during the forecast period. Additionally, rising demand for alumina from the automotive industry is expected to push the demand for Chlor Alkali  during the forecast period. Demand growth from other sectors includes pulp and paper, organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, detergent, and soap, etc.
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Manufacturing units were temporarily shut down and disruption in the supply chain was observed. Shortage of workforce and absence of end-users adversely affected the market growth. Automotive and pulp and paper were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for Chlor Alkali , particularly for caustic soda for the first half of 2020. However, post-pandemic period the market is expected to pick up the pace eventually.
The Asia-pacific region is expected to hold a major market share for the forecast period due to high demand for application industries such as automotive and pulp and paper, textile, etc. Moreover, increasing population and rise in per capita income in emerging economies like India and China coupled with rising in products using Chlor Alkali  derivatives is expected to boost the market demand for the forecast period.
Major players for Chlor Alkali globally include Akzo Nobel NV, Formosa Plastics Corporation, INEOS, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Tata Chemicals Ltd, Tosoh Corporation, Hanwha Solutions/Chemical Corporation, Kemira, Olin Corporation, and others.
