Synopsis of Caustic Soda
Caustic Soda (NaOH) as a 50% w/v solution is a colorless and odorless liquid. It is highly corrosive liquid and reacts rapidly with numerous metals such as aluminum, zinc, tin, magnesium, copper, bronze, and chromium. It is used in the pulping and bleaching processes, de-inking of waste paper and water treatment. In the textile industry, it is used to process cotton and dye synthetic fibers such as polyester and nylon. It is widely used in the manufacturing of soap and detergent on account of its unique properties. Moreover, it is utilized as a feedstock for a broad range of products such as adhesives, plastics, solvents, coatings, herbicides, inks, dyes, fabrics, pharmaceuticals, and others.
According to Market Research Future Analysis, cumulatively the global caustic soda market is predicted to reach USD 56687.66 million by 2027 expanding at a CAGR of 5.92% during the forecast period of 2017-2027. According to application segment, alumina was the most promising segment accounted for the largest global share of around 18% on account of rising demand in alumina refineries as it is predominantly utilized to separate alumina from bauxite ore. Moreover, increasing pulp demand in paper industries coupled with rising caustic soda consumption is estimated to drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, rising use of aluminum in automotive and transportation sector along with rising vehicle production and sales is estimated to propel the growth of the market. Moreover, caustic soda is used as a bleaching agent and rise inorganic and organic chemical demand which are the integral part of chemical industry is expected to fuel the caustic soda market. Manufacturing of caustic soda is energy intensive which means production cost is high consequently the profit margin remains low. This aforementioned reason is estimated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast years. Geographically, Asia Pacific emerged as the leading market share, both in terms of value and volume. In Asia Pacific, China accounted for the largest and Japan as well as India is estimated to be the fastest growing market for caustic soda owing to rapid industrialization and continuous growth of numerous end use industries.
