Product Overview

Caustic Soda market size was USD 54.44 billion in 2021 and projected to grow from USD 57.8 billion in 2023 to USD 76.3 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period.

Caustic soda is also called as sodium hydroxide, with the formula NaOH. It is white ionic compound and generally exist in solid form, comprising of sodium and hydroxide as cations (Na+) and anions (OH-) respectively. It is strongly alkaline and insoluble in non-polar solvents with moderate solubility in alcohol, and highly water soluble. Caustic soda due to its reactiveness & corrosive nature is used to formulate many chemical products. Caustic soda is produced by electrolysis of NaCl solution using a cell types like diaphragm cell and membrane cells.
