Properties and Applications
Caustic soda or sodium hydroxide is an odourless, highly corrosive, non-flammable white solid which can also be used as an esterification and transesterification reagent and cleaning agent. It is widely consumed in chemical pulping involving sulphite, sulphate, and soda and finds applications in industries such as:
Global Caustic Soda Market Analysis
The pulp and paper segment dominates the demand for caustic soda in the market. The pulp and paper, the organic chemicals and inorganic chemicals industries contribute a major share of more than half of the overall demand for caustic soda and are anticipated to dominate during the forecasted period of 2019-2024.
These major industries are followed by the soaps, detergents, textiles, alumina production, water treatment chemicals, and other industries.
The market for caustic soda has so far been led by APAC followed by North America and Europe. High demand in chemical pulping, waste and recycled water treatment, bleaching, and synthesis of other chemicals in many countries has escalated the demand for caustic soda exponentially with EU imports as of 2017 surging by about 1.3% as compared to the previous year.
In 2017, prices surged by about 40-45% globally due to supply constraints as China being the largest producer faced production restrictions. The prices, however, started to stabilise in 2018. China’s exports have reduced significantly in the past five years due to greater domestic demands amidst supply issues.
In 2018, AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals and Evonik Industries successfully started chlorine and potassium hydroxide production at their joint venture facility in Germany after a year and a half of preparation.
