Chlor-alkali is a chemical combination of chlorine and alkali formed by the electrolysis of brine. Chemicals used mostly as alkali are sodium hydroxide, muriatic acid, and potassium hydroxide. There are three different methods used for the production of chlor-alkali, namely mercury cell process, diaphragm cell process and membrane cell process. The major chlor-alkali products used in the market are chlorine gas, soda ash, and caustic soda. Chlor-alkali is used in different applications in organic chemicals, glass industry, paper industry, textile, water treatment, construction, and others.

The chlor-alkali market grows at a moderate rate driven by the increased demand from the end user industry majorly from the textile and glass industry. Asia-Pacific is the leading region in the ionic liquids market followed by North America and Europe due to increase in the production capacity of the chlor-alkali with low manufacturing cost in the Asia-Pacific region. The major factors that drive the chlor-alkali market accelerate the growth of chemical industry in the developing countries and augment demand of the chlor-alkali products by the end user industries such as glass, textile, construction, and others. However, factors such as energy intensive operations and environmental issues due to mercury and carbon emissions are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

The report segments the chlor-alkali market on the basis of process, application, end users, and geography. On the basis of process, the market is divided into mercury cell process, diaphragm cell process, and membrane cell process. Based on application, the market is classified into caustic soda, chlorine, and soda ash. The report is divided by the end user industry into glass, chemicals, food, pulp & paper, construction, textiles, steel, and others.
