Jul 2021. This chlor-alkali report presents world capacity, production, and consumption of chlorine and caustic soda (sodium hydroxide, NaOH) by region and application for 2011–20, with a forecast to 2025. It does not cover the production of potassium hydroxide (KOH), but includes the chlorine coproduced with KOH. Global chlor-alkali consumption is a function of global economic growth or decline. Chlorine demand is driven primarily by the construction sector, while caustic soda demand is driven primarily by the manufacturing sector. Chlorine consumption is largely dependent on the vinyl chain, which includes the production of EDC, VCM, and PVC. Demand for chlor-alkali roughly follows worldwide GDP; however, aggregate global growth or decline does not account for the differences in regions, masking the stronger growth in developing countries versus mature (developed) economies.
