Pune, India, December 7, 2017, /MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on Global Chlor-Alkali Market
Global Chlor-Alkali Market - Overview
Chlor-Alkali refers to the process that is used for the electrolysis of sodium chloride. The procedure creates chlorine and sodium hydroxide which are common by products i.e. commodity chemicals required by the industry. The industrial scale production process of Chlor-Alkali began in 1892. The process includes the electrolysis of brine solution which creates sodium hydroxide, hydrogen and chlorine. The main products of the Chloralkali market are caustic soda chlorine gas and soda ash.
According to a recently published report by Market Research Future on Global Chlor-Alkali Market Research Report- Forecast to 2022, the sector is expected to see double billion dollar growth with an impressive CAGR rate. The reason for the boom of this sector can be attributed to the increased demand from construction sector and paper industries to name a few. This has caused a rise in the upgradation and industrialization to technology to manufacture chlorine in an effective manner. The development of manufacturing industries globally will drive demand for caustic soda in alumina and chemical market. The growing demand for plastic paints, elastomers are a few of the factors driving the market of chlorine product in Chlor-Alkali market.
The factors that may hamper the expansion of this market are government regulations for environment safety in regards to the mercury and carbon emissions from these products. Lack of standardization in the sector is also another hurdle that must be overcome to achieve growth. Additionally, the pre-existing technology should be improved upon to ensure lower energy consumption and reduced environmental impact.
