Format: Online | Last Updated: May 2021

The Caustic Soda demand in India grew at a CAGR of 6.25 per cent during 2015-2020 and is projected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. Caustic soda is an inorganic bulk chemical which is soapy in touch, strongly alkaline and odorless that finds application in various fields like pulp and paper manufacturing, viscose yarn, staple fibre, aluminium, textiles, soaps & detergent, dyestuffs, drugs and pharmaceuticals, petroleum refining etc. Increasing demand from the textile and alumina sectors due to rising investments in these sectors by the Government of India is likely to drive the overall Caustic Soda demand in the country. Robust growth of India’s textile industry which is anticipated to reach $82 billion by 2021 will drive the growth of Chlor-Alkali Industry in India.
India is surplus in Caustic Soda production volumes with most of the plants operating at around 85% efficiency. However, increase in cheaper imports has forced the domestic manufacturers to curtail their margins predominantly due to high input and logistics costs involved within the country. Although disruptions in overseas trade and nationwide lockdown weighed on the overall Caustic Soda consumption in Q4 2020, strengthened Caustic Soda demand from hand wash and soaps manufacturing industries supported the industry outlook during the Coronavirus outbreak. In addition to that, extension of Anti-Dumping Duty on the imports of Caustic Soda from U.S. and Saudi Arabia, as per the petition filed by the Alkali Manufacturers' Association of India (AMAI) in 2017 has given a strong boost to the domestic Caustic Soda Industry.
Moreover, major players venturing into expansion of Caustic Soda capacities have further contributed to widening the expanse of the sector in the domestic market. One of the major projects in the sector includes that of GACL-NALCO Alkalies and Chemicals Private Limited (GNAL) Caustic Soda plant which is expected to start production by 2021. The company has been planning to set up an 800 tonnes per day grassroot Caustic Soda plant in Dahej which will produce around 2.7 lakh tonnes of Caustic Soda per annum.
With new capacity additions to meet the growing demand from textile and alumina sector, the Caustic Soda industry in India is likely to witness robust growth in western region of the country due to rise in number of pulp and paper mills and textile industries, thereby fueling its overall demand.
