The global chlorine market is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.9% between 2014 and 2019. Rising demand of chlorine products in emerging markets, high demand from end-user industries, and large-scale existing production capacities of chlorine and vinyl products are driving the growth of this market. On the other hand, environmental concerns and energy intensive operations are likely to restrain growth of global chlorine market in coming years.

 

Chlorine and its downstream derivatives have been targeted by environmentalists based on concerns about pollution related to mercury-based chlorine production. These industries are now under considerable pressure. The use of chlorine in the pulp and paper industries as a bleaching agent is decreasing in North America and Western Europe owing to these environmental concerns.

 

Asia-Pacific dominates the global chlorine market, having accounted for a market share of 58% in 2014, followed by North America and Europe. Asia-Pacific is expected to sustain the leading position in the global chlorine market in coming years as well.

 

The leading players in the global market for chlorine are The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Hanwha Chemical Corporation (South Korea), Occidental Petroleum Corporation (U.S.), Solvay SA (Belgium), Tata Chemicals Limited (India), Ineos Limited (Switzerland), Formosa Plastic Corporation (Taiwan), Olin Corporation (U.S.), Xinjiang Zhongtai Chemicals Co. Limited (China), Tosoh (Japan), PPG Industries (U.S.), FMC Corporation (U.S.), and Nirma Limited (India).

 

The report studies the global market and its various segments to present in-depth insights regarding the current and future market trends, upcoming growth opportunities, leading and emerging segments, and the top market players.

The global chlorine industry is well established marketplace and is projected to witness decent growth in coming years. Drivers of this industry are identified as rising demand of chlorine products in emerging markets, high demand from end-user industries, and large-scale existing production capacities of chlorine and vinyl products. The restraining factors are identified as environmental concerns and energy-intensive operations of the chlorine industry. The burning issues in the market are mainly the environmental concerns regarding carbon and mercury emissions. The industry players are entering into joint ventures and also opting for capacity expansions to address the demands generated by end-user industries and developing countries.

 

The global chlorine market was valued at $26,279.0 million in 2014 and is projected to reach $33,362.0 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. It is projected to reach a volume of 76,078 KT at a CAGR of 2.4% during the forecast period.

 

Amongst all chlorine applications, organic chemicals is estimated to have the highest CAGR of 3.44% between 2014 and 2019 in terms of volume, followed by the EDC/PVC with a projected CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period.

 

Asia-Pacific leads the global market for chlorine with the highest revenue. The growth in demand of chlorine in Asia-Pacific is expected to be driven by the vinyls chain (EDC/VCM/PVC) in coming years.  China accounts for the highest consumption of chlorine at both regional and global level.   

 

The Chinese government is planning to boost infrastructure and residential housing in the country, which will further drive the regional demand. In Europe, the market for chlorine is estimated to grow at a marginal rate during the forecast period. The countries in Europe follow stringent environmental regulations to control the harmful industrial emissions. In North America, particularly in the U.S., the growth in demand for chlorine is expected to be driven by the vinyls chain (EDC/VCM/PVC). Some new capacities are likely to start production as the demand from the vinyl industry is projected to increase owing to the growing demand from construction and residential housing. In the U.S., environment problems have caused certain applications of chlorine to be phased out, including the cluster rules in the pulp and paper industry mandating chlorine-free bleaching.

 

The leading players in the market are The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Hanwha Chemical Corporation (South Korea), Occidental Petroleum Corporation (U.S.), Solvay SA (Belgium), Tata Chemicals Limited (India), Ineos Limited (Switzerland), Formosa Plastic Corporation (Taiwan), Olin Corporation (U.S.), Xinjiang Zhongtai Chemicals Co. Limited (China), Tosoh (Japan) and PPG Industries (U.S.), FMC Corporation (U.S.), and Nirma Limited (India).
