Chlor Alkali Market Surges with High Profit Margins as Vinyl Production Soars 

According to a newly published report by Fact.MR, the global chlor-alkali market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% and was pegged at a valuation of more than US$ 84 Bn in 2018. The proliferation of building and construction has boosted the overall consumption of chlor-alkali across all end-use applications. EDC / PVC applications account for a significant share in the chlor-alkali market. In 2018, the trade value of vinyl chloride polymers and other olephins was $20.48 billion. Growing trade of PVC is anticipated to create opportunities in the chlor-alkali market.

The use of chlor-alkali derivatives, such as polyvinyl chloride plastics in advanced infrastructure solutions, further improves the chlor-alkali market's revenue margins. Rising aluminum production, and growing paper and pulp industries in China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia are expected to drive growth in the Asia-Pacific Chlor-alkali markets. In addition, low energy costs for Shale gas in North America will fuel capacity expansion.

New and modern facilities will drive higher utilization and increase profitability through 2027. Manufacturing technology has strategically shifted from the diaphragm and mercury cell system to the membrane cell process globally, owing to increasing mercury pollution levels. This will give the industry a major boost over the forecast period.

 Demand for Caustic Soda in Asia Pacific Surges

Caustic soda acts as an active compound of alkali and reacts readily with various substances, including zinc and aluminum. This is a significant factor that is likely to boost the demand for chlor alkali products in metallurgical applications. Chlor-alkali is also used for water neutralization owing to its low pH value. The need for integration of water treatment plants owing to environmental restrictions by governments around the world will escalate the demand for chlor-alkali. Presently countries in Asia Pacific such as China and India account for a major chunk of caustic soda exports thus boosting the market in these regions.

Energy-Intensive Operations Adversely Affect Market Growth

Factors such as the energy-intensive production processes and strict environmental standards are expected to hamper the global chlor-alkali market growth. The Chlor-alkali market's main limitation is the legislation implemented by governments arising from ecological concerns. In regions such as the Americas and Europe, where the government focuses primarily on environmental issues, vendors face strict government regulations. Leading market players like DowDupont have set an example by turning asbestos-based diaphragm manufacturing into non-asbestos operations in order to align production facilities with local laws. Average operating rate in North America will rise to 90% by the short term forecast.

Capacity Expansions to Drive Asset Utilization and Increase Profitability

Manufacturers are investing heavily toward expansion of their production facilities to meet the increasing demand for chlor-alkali derived products across the globe. The global chlor-alkali market, characteristically, is moving towards consolidation. Prominent players are enhancing their distribution network by acquiring regional and local players. Companies are focusing on increasing their business footprints through continuous capacity expansions and acquisitions. These expansions are expected to surge the demand for chlor-alkali across the globe. For instance,

  • In Oct 2019, Borregaard invested 207 million Norwegian krone in a chlor-alkali plant at Sarpsborg site in Norway; The project aims at modernizing existing equipment and is expected to near completion in 2021
  • In July 2019, Global EPC and turnkey management company Nuberg EPC has been selected by SCE Chemicals, Morocco as the EPC lump sum contractor to establish a new Chlor-Alkali plant. The plant will produce caustic soda, hydrochloric acid and sodium hypochlorite chlorine.
  • In Feb 2019, Aditya Birla Group firm, Grasim Industries, has inked a pact to acquire the chlor-alkali business of KPR Industries.
  • In April 2018- Kemira announced an investment of USD 58.5 Million to expand the manufacturing capacity of chlor-alkali at its Finland based plant
