Demand for Disinfection Solutions Spikes Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Unlike other markets, COVID-19 (coronavirus) is anticipated to bring positive news for companies operating in the chlor-alkali market. This is due to an unprecedented demand for disinfectant chemicals and spray bottles that help to sanitize surfaces and objects and help to break the chain of the infection. India is one of the key producers of alkali chemicals such as chlorine, bleaching solutions, and sodium hypochlorite that are extensively used in disinfection solutions.

As per the guidelines issued by the Alkali Manufacturers Association of India (AMAI), companies in the chlor-alkali market are increasing awareness about the cautious measures that individuals must follow to avoid any harmful reactions on the skin. Manufacturers are recommending dilution of disinfection chemicals before using them for sanitization of surfaces and objects that are contaminated or infected.

The ODC technology is being highly publicized for drastically reducing CO2 emissions during chlorine production. As such, chlorine is anticipated to dictate the second-highest revenue among all products in the market for chlor-alkali. The ODC process is replacing the conventional procedure of hydrogen-producing electrode to suppress the formation of hydrogen, leaving behind application-ready chlorine and caustic soda in the market for chlor-alkali.

Capacity Additions in India to Boost Aluminum Production

Asia Pacific dominates the highest revenue among all regions and the region’s revenue is projected for aggressive growth in the chlor-alkali market. This is evident since companies in India are entering into strategic agreements to tap into value-grab opportunities. For instance, Grasim Industries of leading multinational conglomerate, Aditya Birla Group, announced to acquire the chlor-alkali business of KPR Industries in Andhra Pradesh to deploy expansion plans for aluminum in the state. Currently, the chlor-alkali market is valued at ~US$ 73 billion and is estimated to reach ~US$ 100 Bn by the end of 2030.

Manufacturers in the market for chlor-alkali are increasing efforts to increase their production capabilities in caustic soda to tap opportunities in India’s aluminum sector. As such, companies are strengthening their operations in the East Coast of India. Such strategies to strengthen operations are leading to capacity additions for caustic soda, which is extensively used in the production of aluminum. Manufacturers are unlocking incremental opportunities by exploring sectors of water treatment, viscose staple fiber, pharmaceuticals, and the likes.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The unprecedented demand for disinfection sprays and solutions helps companies in the chlor-alkali market to capitalize on revenue opportunities amidst the COVID-19 crisis. The ODC technology has proved to be a game changer that offer energy savings and has significantly reduced CO2 emissions during the chlorine production.

The caustic soda is being increasingly used to maintain or increase the pH level that helps to reduce corrosion of steel, which is exposed to drilling fluids. Caustic soda cannot be effectively used to raise the pH level in case of high amounts of cations. Hence, companies should increase their research in bioassay information to avoid precipitation of hydroxides, while trying to maintain sufficient pH levels.
