Indian Chlor Alkali Market Size, Share and Forecast 2019-2025

Indian Chlor Alkali Market Size, Share and Forecast 2019-2025

Chlor-Alkali refers to the two chemicals, including chlorine and alkali which are produced as a result of the electrolysis of saltwater. According to the Chlorine Institute, most of the chlorine is manufactured using electrolysis process by the diaphragm, membrane, or mercury cell process. In each process, a salt solution (sodium or potassium chloride) is electrolyzed by the action of direct electric current which converts chloride ions to elemental chlorine. Chlorine is also produced in several other ways, for instance, by electrolysis of molten sodium or magnesium chloride to make elemental sodium or magnesium metal; by electrolysis of hydrochloric acid; and by non-electrolytic processes. The most common chlor-alkali chemicals include sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and chlorine. Additionally, it can include muriatic acid and potassium hydroxide. Chloro-2,3-epoxypropane has multiple industrial uses and the most crucial being the manufacturing of epoxy resins. Chlorine is also used in the production of several inorganic compounds, primarily hydrogen chloride and titanium dioxide. As per the Chlorine Institute, in 2016, the annual production of chlorine was 65 million tons across the globe. The production of chlorine in the US was 14 million tons and 10 million tons in Europe in 2016. Moreover, in 2017, chlorine production was reported at 9.9 million tons in Europe. The production of chlorine is varying owing to fluctuations within the industrial sectors, such as paper and pulp and chemical. For instance, as per the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), the pulp production capacity in Europe was 42.6 million tons in 2017, whereas, it was 44.2 million tons in 2010.
