Market Dynamics:


Wide Application Base of Caustic Soda to Drive Market

Caustic soda, also known as (Sodium Hydroxide) is essential in a variety of applications, primarily in the manufacturing of petroleum products, soap, and detergents, alumina, pulp and paper, chemical products, as well as pharmaceuticals and others. Such a wide base of applications is the primary driving factor for the development of the global caustic soda market. The chemical industry accounts for almost 40% of the total consumption of caustic soda across the globe. About 60% of all chemicals are produced directly or indirectly using chlorine or caustic soda. It is especially essential for the manufacturing of chlorinated solvents, chlorinated methane’s, and plastics, most notably polyvinyl chloride is expected to strengthen the market growth in upcoming years. In emerging economies, China, India, the U.S., Singapore, and Germany, a continuously growing chemical industry is expected to generate massive demand for causative soda during the forecast timeline. Additionally, the rapid pace of industrialization and urbanization in these regions is expected to witness a substantial increase in the demand for caustic soda during the upcoming years.
