Chlor-Alkali Market Scope
Chlor-Alkali is process in which electrolysis of brain takes place for the production in which brine is act as feedstock which is high concentrated solution of sodium chloride or calcium chloride or salt. By this procedure sodium hydrochloride, chlorine gas, hydrogen gas, vinyl chloride monomer, sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide among these chlorine and caustic soda are primary products. Over the period of time caustic –chlorine industry become largest growing and demanding industry because products made from caustic soda and chlorine are incorporated in day-today life of common people and become part of lifestyle. Owing to increase in demand Chlor-Alkali process because its applications in wide range of industries, Chlor-Alkali market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.
