Global Sodium Hydroxide Market Outlook to 2026 - Featuring BASF SE, Solvay and FMC Corporation Among Others -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Sodium Hydroxide Market Outlook to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

This report provides deep insight into the Industrial market's current and future state across various regions. The study comprehensively analyses the Sodium Hydroxide market by segmenting based on the Grade (Food Grade, Laboratory Grade, Pharmaceutical Grade, ACS Grade, Rayon Grade, Industrial grade), End-User Industry (Textile, Pulp, and Paper, Pharmaceutical, Petroleum, Others), and Geography (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle-East and Africa).

The report examines the market drivers and restraints and the impact of Covid-19 on the market growth in detail. The study covers and includes emerging market trends, developments, opportunities, and challenges in the industry. This report covers extensively researched competitive landscape sections with prominent companies and profiles, including their market shares and projects.

Sodium Hydroxide is one of the main ingredients to make Bar soaps and detergents and is also used to clean drains and cure the clogging of pipes. Some other significant uses include fuel cell production, removing skin from vegetables for canning, curing food, aluminum ore processing, oxide coating, pickling, pain relievers to prevent blood clots, cholesterol-reducing medications, and water treatment. Sodium hydroxide is also used to manufacture rayon, dyes, explosives, and petroleum products. It is also used in processing cotton fabric, laundering and bleaching, metal cleaning and processing, oxide coating, electroplating, and electrolytic extracting.

The most dominating industry in terms of the use of Sodium Hydroxide is Pulp and Paper Industry. It is used to regenerate certain chemicals like sodium sulfide or white liquor, which are used for pulping the wood into fibers therefore, the reuse of most of the chemicals reduces the overall cost of the industry. It is used in bleaching processes as well to increase the efficiency of bleaching. Caustic Soda is also used in the recycling process of the paper Since NaOH solution makes fibers swell such that the ink applied on them is separated, and the paper can be reused. The Paper Industry uses around 25% of the total Sodium Hydroxide produced. Functions such as the on-site production of Sodium Hypochlorite, cooking and processing of Kraft pulps, and lignin extraction during bleaching make NaOH ideal for the paper and pulp industry.

Some of the market's key players are BASF SE, Solvay, FMC Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Aditya Birla Chemicals, among others.

Solvay, also known as Soda Solvay is a global leader in the production of Sodium compounds. The company witnessed its net sales driven up by 1.9% in the first quarter of 2021, and the net profit was €240 million in Q1 2021 which was 1.8% more in comparison to the first quarter of 2020.
