The global caustic soda market to grow at a CAGR of 3.52% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Caustic Soda Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the Key vendors operating in this market.
The production of caustic soda through mercury cell process is being phased out in Europe due to the emission of 0.82 gm of mercury per one ton of chlorine capacity in western Europe. To protect the environment from the anthropogenic emissions of mercury, the European Commission has imposed a regulation under the Directive 2010/75/EU, which includes termination of chlor-alkali production using mercury cell process. This will impact the global production of caustic soda.
According to the report, caustic soda is used as a cleaning agent in water treatment and purification applications. Many water treatment solutions are currently available in the market. However, chemical methods are still proven to be the most cost-efficient. Water purification methods such as ultraviolet (UV) purification, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and ion exchange methods require significant investments for purchasing the equipment and installation. Furthermore, the maintenance and operational costs of these equipment are also cost-intensive. Caustic soda and other chemicals used for water treatment are cheap and are easily available in the market. Therefore, the consumers prefer treatment chemicals over expensive physical methods and equipment.
