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 2023-2028.

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.

 

Price Trends

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.

 

Competitive Landscape

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.

The report offers a detailed analysis of the following key players covering their capacities, market share and latest turn of events such as mergers and acquisitions, capacity expansions and plant turnarounds in the global caustic soda market:
