Caustic soda, an inorganic compound produced by electrolytic (chloroalkali) process has strong alkaline properties. Its chemical name is sodium hydroxide (NaOH) which is a white solid soluble in water, ethanol and methanol and available in pellets, flakes, granules, etc. it is used as a strong chemical base in industries like pulp and paper, textiles, drinking water, soaps and detergents, water treatment, aluminum production, food processing, and forensic applications, among others.
Caustic soda readily reacts with elements like zinc and aluminum; hence, it is widely used in the extraction of these elements, especially alumina extraction. Caustic soda is widely used for chemical pulping, tissue digestion, dissolving amphoteric metals and compounds, esterification and transesterification reagent, food preparation, cleaning agent, etc. Applications as pulp & paper, textiles, chemicals, soaps & detergents, aluminum, food, and others segment global caustic soda market. Pulp & paper industry is the largest application of global caustic soda market.
Asia Pacific is the leading region in terms of demand for global caustic soda market especially in pulp & paper and textiles industries. China, Australia and India are adding to the demand for caustic soda in aluminum, detergents and chemical sectors. North America is facing a downfall in caustic soda market. Declining consumptions of the downstream product - PVC, has hampered the growth of the global caustic soda market, particularly in North America and Europe.
