Sodium Hydroxide Market Size Worth $74.82 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 4.5%

The global sodium hydroxide market size is expected to reach USD 74.82 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Sodium Hydroxide Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Grade (Solid, 50% Aqueous Solution, and Others); By Production Process; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The surge in the water purification and waste management industry with the significant rise in attentiveness for the water preservation, waste management, and common fright of running out of the potable water along with the sustained demand for alumina, textiles, and paper globally, are major prominent factors propelling the demand and growth of the market. Moreover, the growing focus of major key players of the market on developing and innovating more advanced product solutions and expansion of their production facilities, will also push the market growth forward in the near future.

For instance, in February 2022, Occidental Petroleum’s chemical division announced that they are considering an overhaul of some chlor-alkali plants to boost the production capacity of higher-value caustic soda. It would further reduce the carbon intensity per ton and help the company to meet the rising demand for their products.
