LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global caustic soda market report. This research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
The global caustic soda market is likely to grow at a moderate pace during the forecast period. The market growth can be attributed to the growth in many end-user industries, such as pulp and paper, organic chemicals, and inorganic chemicals. The compound is mainly used in chemical industries for processing other chemicals, such as soda lime. The market growth may be affected due to the reactive nature and energy-intensive production process, which also contribute to the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Competitive vendor landscape
According to the report, with the increase in the number of new players, the market share for these vendors is declining and is being shared by regional players. Intense competition and stringent regulations from the governments constitute significant risk factors for the vendors in the market. The market is witnessing consolidation due to intensifying competition.
“To survive and succeed in this intensely competitive market, it is imperative for the vendors to distinguish their product and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition,” says Mahitha Mallishetty, a lead specialty chemicals research analyst from Technavio.
