The global caustic soda market is being driven by the growing demand for caustic soda in the pulp and paper industry and the production of organic and inorganic chemicals. The rising demand for alumina in the automotive industry is emerging as one of the significant factors driving the industry forward as caustic soda is widely consumed to extract aluminium from its ores. Over the forecast period, the expansion of the plant capacity and growing investments in the research and development activities supported by the cross-industry collaborations are expected to further propel the market growth. However, environmental concerns may hamper the industry growth in the future.

Industry Definition and Major Segments

Caustic soda is a white solid ionic compound represented by the formula NaOH. It is also known as sodium hydroxide. This inorganic compound is highly soluble in water, has a relatively higher viscosity than that of water, and can form several hydrates. It is produced through the variations of the electrolytic chloralkali process as a 50% solution and is commonly available as flakes, and prills. It is used as a strong base in the manufacture of various products like pulp and paper, detergents, textiles, and more.

The various production process of caustic soda are as follows:

  1. Membrane Cell
  2. Diaphragm Cell
