The market is mainly driven by the growing demand from end-user industries such as aromatics, textiles, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, insecticides etc. Moreover, chlorine is used as a raw material for the production of an extensive range of important chemicals which is further expected to drive the market demand in the near future. 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 and environmental concerns may hamper the market growth during the forecast period. 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.
On the basis of application, the chlorine market can be segmented into EDC/PVC, inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals, chlorinated intermediaries, isocyanates, pulp & paper, water treatment, and others (TiO2 & HCl). About 20% chlorine is consumed in PVC. EDC/PVC was the leading segment with over 36.0% of the total chlorine consumption in 2015. This growth is mainly attributed to increasing demand EDC/PVC from the construction industry. Inorganic chemicals and organic chemicals are expected to show significant growth in the near future.
Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing regional market for chlorine. This is mainly due to growing plastic and chemical industries in emerging economies such as China and India, in this region. China is the largest revenue contributor for chlorine market in this region. In 2015, Asia Pacific was followed by Europe and North America in terms of revenue. Europe is another leading regional market for chlorine. This growth is mainly attributed to the presence of a number of chemical industries in this region and this trend is projected to continue over the years.
Some of the key players in this market are BASF SE, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Formosa Plastics Corporation, PPG Industries, Tata Chemicals Limited, Tosoh Corporation, and Ineos Group Ltd. and Olin Corporation.
