What is Caustic Soda And Uses
Caustic soda is the co-product in chlorine production. The laws of chemistry define that for every tones of chlorine production, about 1100 kg of caustic soda flake is also produced, along with 28 kg of hydrogen. Caustic soda is the common name for sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Caustic soda is an alkali salt which is also called Lye. Sodium hydrate is caustic or corrosive. Because of this chemical identity, it is known as caustic soda. Caustic soda is a waxy, white solid in its pure form. It readily absorbs water and forms aqueous solutions. Sodium hydroxide is a by-product of chlorine production.
The widespread use of caustic soda in different industries is increasingly adding to the growth of the market. Market reports associated with the chemicals and materials sector made accessible by Market Research Future along with published reports on other sectors have been lately put out along with a report on this industry. Over the past few years, the global caustic soda market has witnessed a moderate growth and as per the analysis, the market is likely to continue growing over the forecast period. The market growth is attributed towards the continuously increasing growth of the application segment such as alumina, paper & pulp, organic chemical, textiles, soaps & detergents, inorganic chemicals, water treatment, dye & ink and others. Global caustic soda market is projected to reach USD 56687.66 Million by 2027 at a CAGR of 5.92% during the review period 2017-2027. The global sodium hydroxide market is growing moderately, with Asia-Pacific leading consumption, followed by North America and Europe. China is the largest producer and consumer for caustic soda products.
Manufacturing companies of sodium hydroxide products can influence potential opportunities in regions such as North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific, due to rapidly growing food and textiles industries, and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period.
