Global Chlor Alkali Market Worth $ 16.26 Billion by 2019

Date: 2016-09-19

Chlor Alkali is an industrial process for the electrolysis of NaCl . It is the technology used to produce chlorine and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which are commodity chemicals required by industry. Chlor alkali includes Membrane cell and Diaphragm cell on the base of classification, which represent 68% and 27% of global chlor alkali market. 

Three production methods are in use. While the mercury cell method produces chlorine-free sodium hydroxide, the use of several tonnes of mercury leads to serious environmental problems. In a normal production cycle a few hundred pounds of mercury per year are emitted, which accumulate in the environment. Additionally, the chlorine and sodium hydroxide produced via the mercury-cell chloralkali process are themselves contaminated with trace amounts of mercury. The membrane and diaphragm method use no mercury, but the sodium hydroxide contains chlorine, which must be removed.

Chemical, Petroleum/Natural Gas and Food Industry are the main application of chlor alkali product and Asia is the largest chlor alkali market on production and consumption.

Global chlor alkali market is projected to reach $ 16.26 Billion by 2019, with a GAGR of 5.7% from 2015, and Asia will have a big dynamic momentum on the market growth. The major players in the global chlor alkali market are Juhua, Tosoh, Hanwha Chemical, Dow, OxyChem, Olin, Ineos Group etc..
