Description

Market Overview

The global chlorine market accounted for USD 35.5 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 50.2 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2028.

PVC products and water treatment can’t be imagined without chlorine. It is, in fact, looked upon as the most valuable chemical across the industry vertical and expected to witness a stupendous CAGR in the next 10 years. It is a known fact that chloride pipes are more durable as well as stronger than the conventional pipes. As such, high-rise buildings where it’s need to stand sunlight, rain, and gravity ask for chloride pipes

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

The pharma industry is asking for chlorine as a solvent. Amidst the ongoing pandemic, various means are being tried out all over the world to combat it. Though vaccination drive is at its peak, it will take atleast mid-2022 for majority of the world populace to get vaccinated. Additionally, the imposition of lockdown has slowed down the production of chlorine. It will take a while for this topsy-turvy situation to reach normalcy. Still, looking at the essential nature of services, optimum chlorine production is on. Besides, the demand for chlorine based sanitizers is likely to continue in the coming years as a precautionary measure.

Growth Factors:

The global chlorine market is predominantly driven by growing need for sanitization in public places. It is a widely used disinfectant in agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other industries. Moreover, chlorine is an essential in water treatment process. With the emergence of SMART Cities and townships, stringent regulations have been incorporated for the disposal of waste water. In modern colonies, waste water is recycled and reused through a chlorine filtration process. Therefore, chlorine forms an important and inseparable ingredient in application based industries.

Free Analysis

Chlorine is a part of the group of chemicals called halogen, which includes fluorine, bromine, and iodine. Chlorine does not exist naturally as it’s too reactive. Chlorine is widely used in the disinfection of public water supplies to prevent the transmission of waterborne diseases such as cholera and typhoid. Chlorine can be found dissolved in seas and salty lakes as well as in the ground as rock salts or halite. Chlorine is available in various forms, which include hypo-chloride solution, chlorine gas and other compounds in solid or liquid forms. Chlorine is used in several consumer products such as in batteries, nickel chlorine etc.

Chlorine market is expected to show high growth in light of its extensive usage in aromatics, textiles, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, insecticides etc. Furthermore, an increase of water treatment and pharmaceutical industries across the globe and their demand for chlorine is another key factor contributes to driving the market growth. Chlorine is wildly used as a raw material for the production of important chemicals which is further anticipated to propel the market growth within the forecast period. Furthermore, more than 95% of water treatment plants and 85% of pharmaceutical industries across the globe use chlorine in production processes.  However, its energy intensive operations coupled with environmental concerns may pose a threat to the market growth over the years. Nevertheless, increasing demand in EDC/PVC which is required in the construction industry is expected to open up new growth opportunities in the years to come.

Global chlorine market

The chlorine market is segmented on the basis of different application such as EDC/PVC, inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals, chlorinated intermediaries, isocyanates, pulp & paper, water treatment, and others (TiO2 & HCl). EDC/PVC segment accounted for a large chunk of the market share in 2015. This growth is mainly attributed to increasing use of EDC/PVC in the construction industry. Water treatment segment is another key outlet and is expected to witness significant growth within the forecast period.

The chlorine market was dominated by Asia Pacific with the largest share of the total market in 2015. Asia Pacific was followed by Europe and North America in terms of revenue in 2015. This growth is mainly due to growing chemical and plastic industries in emerging economies such as China and India.
