Global A-share Listed Chlor-alkali Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

The global A-share listed chlor-alkali market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~ USD 94 billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~4% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~ USD 64 billion in the year 2022. The main products of the chlor alkali industry are hydrogen, chlorine, and caustic soda, and these are produced as a result of the electrolysis of sodium chloride solution. These products have applications in industries of a wide range which affects the daily life of people and the economic development of a nation. The rising demand for caustic soda worldwide is the primary factor driving the growth of the global A-share listed chlor-alkali market. The caustic soda demand is projected to grow from ~69 million tons in 2021 to ~142 million tons by 2035.






A major share of the caustic soda produced is primarily used in alumina manufacturing. Further caustic soda is used in the production of a wide variety of goods and for many important processes, including food, organic chemicals, soaps and detergents, steel/metallurgy, textiles, and water treatment.

Global A-share Listed Chlor-alkali Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Waste Water Treatment Around the World – Caustic soda has strong alkaline features that help it to act as a disinfectant of wastewater, capable of removing pollutants while raising the pH level. Wastewater is mostly produced from activities in the domestic, agricultural and industrial sectors.  The wastewater, thus produced from agricultural activities, household activities, or industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, iron, steel, and more, can be reused once the pollutants are removed through proper wastewater treatment. For instance, about 81 percent of the wastewater from household activities is safely treated in Europe and North America.

  • Considerable Number of Construction Works – It is estimated that ~1 million new housing units are planned annually in the United States (U.S.).

  • Increasing Production Capacity of Ammonia - The global production capacity of ammonia has been projected to increase from ~236 million metric tons in 2019 to ~291 million metric tons by 2030.

  • Prospective Demand for Hydrogen in Transportation – It is estimated that hydrogen should be able to power the flight of a commercial passenger aircraft for up to 3001 kilometers by 2035. 


  • Reduced Demand from End User Sectors During the Pandemic

  • Stringent Environmental Regulations Around the World

  • Humanitarian Concerns About Workers Involved in the Production

The global A-share listed chlor-alkali market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by production process into membrane cells, diaphragm cells, and others.
