Chlor alkali is a technology/process by which commodity chemicals are produced to meet industrial demand. Chlorine, caustic soda and soda ash are considered under the common head of chlor-alkali chemicals. They are used by a myriad of industries. The general use of these chemicals is in water-treatment, glass, plastics, building & construction, chemical production, pulp & paper as well as food processing. They can also be used in the production of hydrochloric acid, bleaching powder and chlorinated paraffin amongst other chemicals. As mentioned above chlor-alkali chemicals can be categorized on the basis of products of the process as chlorine, caustic soda and soda ash.
 
In terms of applications, chlorine finds application in the production of certain chemicals such as EDC/PVC, aromatic chemicals, organic as well as inorganic chemicals, chlorinated intermediates, isocyanates and propylene oxide. Similarly, caustic soda finds application in the production of alumina, organic as well as inorganic chemicals and in industries such as food industry, pulp & paper, soaps & detergents, textiles, water-treatment, steel/metallurgy-sintering. However, Soda Ash finds application in the production of glass, chemicals, soap and in metallurgy, water treatment, pulp & paper.
 
Chlorine leads this market in terms of production and demand, followed by caustic soda and soda ash. A key step in the development of chlor-alkali market has been the collaboration of multiple industries or acquisitions leading to chlor alkali market growth. However, a major constraint to the growth of this industry is the environmental concern behind their production process. Nevertheless, new process techniques & technologies are coming up and competitive players in the market are actively adopting them to survive in the game.
