Summary

Table of Contents

The global caustic soda market is expected to grow with a CAGR between 3.2% and 4.4 % from 2016 to 2022. Caustic soda is also known as lye, sodium hydrate, and sodium hydroxide. Caustic soda is an inorganic odourless material with strong base and highly corrosive properties. It dissolves in ethanol, methanol, and water. Caustic soda is also available in solid forms such as flakes, granules, and pellets. It is obtained as a co-product, during the electrolytic process for the manufacturing of chlorine, using technologies such as diaphragm cells, mercury cells and membrane cells. Sodium chloride is the base raw material for the process and it splits during the electrolytic process to give sodium and chlorine. The sodium further reacts with water in the cells to provide caustic soda and hydrogen. Caustic soda produced by lime soda process has lesser quality. Caustic soda is a good reactant and hence finds application in the extraction of metals such as alumina and zinc.

Moreover, it is widely used for the production of various inorganic chemicals. Caustic soda finds several applications as an auxiliary chemical in industries such as pulp & paper, textiles, oil & gas, detergents, cleaning products and others. Additionally, caustic soda finds application for the acids neutralisation, pharmaceutical compounds synthesis, and rubber recycling.

Caustic soda garners a share of more than 40% among the inorganic chemicals in terms of volume of consumption worldwide. Demand from the organic chemicals industries account for a significant portion of the volume of caustic soda market. The increasing demand from end user industries such as pulp, paper, and textiles is expected to the drive the growth of the global caustic soda market. The increasing demand for alumina from the automobile industry is boosting the growth of the global caustic soda market during the estimated period.

Owing to the stringent regulations opted by governments in various countries for many industries for the environmental harm caused by the highly corrosive as well as reactive traits of caustic soda is a major restraining factor hampering the growth of the global caustic soda market. The prospects of global caustic soda market depend on the demand for chlorine, as caustic soda is a co-product obtained during the chlorine manufacturing process. The lower demand for chlorine from PVC manufacturing industry is expected to influence the volume of production of the caustic soda during the forecast period. As production of caustic soda involves higher power consumption, market growth is expected to face a major challenge of higher manufacturing cost. Higher price fluctuation for caustic soda in the commodities spot market is also expected to pose a major restraint for the major players in the market during the forecast period.
