Market Research and Market Trends of Sodium Hydroxide Market
  • One of the key trends noticed in the Caustic Soda Market is in relation to the production method used in the Industry. Earlier the method used was Mercury Cell Electrolysis method, but this method is being phased globally. The recent complete phase out by Europe as on Dec, 2017 is also another example of this. These process have been substituted by the Membrane Cell Process, which requires lesser amount of Electricity and has much lesser impact on the environment as compared to mercury effluents.
  • One of the most noticeable trends in the Caustic soda market has been the increase in import prices over the period of time. Due to the phase out of the mercury cell process in Europe and the strict environmental regulatory action taken in China the Caustic Soda market has been effected with production capacities lowering temporarily leading to price hikes in the import-export market. With the demand being consistently high these increase in Caustic Soda prices are a positive move for the market. 
  • Another key trend for the Caustic Soda market is the increasing demand for PVC products. PVC stands for Poly-Vinyl Chloride and is one of the most used synthetic plastic polymers. PVC is manufactured with Chlorine as a raw material and the production of Caustic Soda gives Chlorine as a byproduct with directly adds to the value chain of its manufacturing. Hence with the increasing demand for PVC and growth in the Alumina Market, for which Caustic Soda is a necessary raw material, the use of Caustic Soda is expected to grow positively.
