Insights into the Caustic Soda Market to 2026 - by Production Process and Application -

DUBLIN--()--The "Caustic Soda Market by Production Process and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global caustic soda market was valued at $36.0 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $55.8 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.50% from 2019 to 2026.

Caustic soda, also known as sodium hydroxide and lye, is an inorganic compound composed of sodium cations Na+ and hydroxide anions OH. It is highly caustic base that decomposes proteins at normal room temperature and can cause chemical burns. Caustic soda is soluble in water and absorbs carbon dioxide and moisture from air. It is used in several applications. In addition, it is used in the manufacturing process of alumina, soap & detergents, pulp & paper, petroleum products, and chemical production.

The global caustic soda market is expected to grow significantly. Its increasing use in applications such as alumina, pulp & paper, soap & detergent, water treatment, and others drive the growth of the market. Further, with growing chemical industry, it is expected that the demand for caustic soda will also increase as caustic soda is used in manufacturing of organic and inorganic chemicals. However, high corrosive and reactive nature of caustic soda is expected to restrain the growth of the market. The global caustic soda market is yet to explore its full potential. Therefore, increase in innovation and development in manufacturing processes of caustic soda is anticipated to provide growth opportunities to the market.

The global caustic soda market is segmented on the basis of production process, application, and region. Based on the production process, the market is divided into membrane cell, diaphragm cell, and others. Based on application, the global caustic soda market is categorized into organic chemical, inorganic chemicals, alumina, pulp & paper, soap & detergent, water treatment, and others.
