Chlorine is primarily produced through the chlor-alkali electrolysis process, where it is obtained along with hydrogen gas and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) from the electrolysis of brine. The chlorine market growth is driven by its extensive applications in diverse end-use industries, including water treatment, chemical manufacturing, PVC production, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. Chlorine and its derivatives serve as vital building blocks in the production of various specialty chemicals and intermediates. These chemicals are essential in diverse industries, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, coatings, and personal care products. As demand grows for specialty chemicals tailored to specific applications, the chlorine market will benefit from increased consumption. Chlorine derivatives also find applications as solvents and chemical reagents in research laboratory work and chemical synthesis. The expanding chemical research and development activities in industries like pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and material science is anticipated to provide growth opportunities to the chlorine market. In addition, the developing pulp and paper industry offers significant growth opportunities for the chlorine market due to its continued reliance on chlorine-based bleaching agents and the increasing sustainable paper production. Chlorine is a key component in bleaching to whiten pulp fibers and improve paper quality. As various sectors increasingly recognize the benefits of using chlorine and its derivatives in their processes, the demand for chlorine is expected to expand. From water treatment to pharmaceuticals, from plastic manufacturing to crop protection, chlorine, and its derivatives play crucial roles in enhancing efficiency, safety, and hygiene across a wide spectrum of applications. Thus, increasing adoption of chlorine across different end-use industries is expected to provide growth opportunities to the chlorine market.

Chlorine is one of the most widely used disinfectants in water treatment due to its effectiveness in destroying harmful microorganisms and ensuring safe and potable water delivery to communities. The process of chlorination involves adding chlorine or chlorine-based compounds to water to destroy bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that may pose a health risk to consumers. Using chlorine in water treatment has been crucial in improving public health and preventing waterborne diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and dysentery. Chlorine acts as a potent oxidizing agent when dissolved in water, and it readily reacts with organic matter and microorganisms. It also oxidizes and breaks down organic compounds, helps reduce unpleasant tastes, odors, and colors in water. In addition, it plays a critical role in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the widely used thermoplastics. PVC manufacturing relies on chlorine for various applications, including synthesizing different plastics and related compounds. PVC is made by polymerizing vinyl chloride monomers (VCM) derived from ethylene chlorination obtained from petroleum feedstocks. The chlorination process converts ethylene into vinyl chloride monomers, which are polymerized to form PVC resins. Plastic has applications in construction, automotive, electrical, healthcare, and many other industries due to its excellent properties, such as durability, chemical resistance, and cost-effectiveness. Thus, the high demand for chlorine from different end-use industries is contributing to the chlorine market growth.

Aditya Birla Chemicals India Ltd, BASF SE, Ercros SA, Hanwha Solutions Corp, INEOS Group Holdings SA, Occidental Petroleum Corp, Olin Corp, Tata Chemicals Ltd, Vynova Belgium NV, and Sumitomo Chemical Co Ltd are among the players operating in the global chlorine market. The global chlorine market players focus on providing high-quality products to fulfill customer demand.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Chlorine Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely altered status of the chemicals & materials sector and negatively affected the chlorine market growth. The implementation of measures to combat the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has aggravated the situation and declined the growth of various industries. As a result, there was a sudden distortion in operational efficiencies and disruptions in the value chains; many industries faced several challenges owing to the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The COVID-19 pandemic has restrained the import and export of chlorine in different countries, hampering the chlorine market growth. The shortage of chlorine due to the COVID-19 pandemic increased its prices rapidly across the world. However, several companies operating in the manufacturing industries revived their businesses owing to the ease of restrictions. Hence, the demand for chlorine is rising across the world, especially among the chemical, pharmaceuticals, water & wastewater, and PVC manufacturing sectors.
