Global Soda Ash

IHS Chemical Market Advisory Service: Global Soda Ash (formerly CMAI Global Soda Ash Market Advisory Service) delivers comprehensive monthly market reports on the world’s soda ash markets. Access current prices and forecasts for the United States, Western Europe and Asia.

The world's soda ash markets are evolving to meet shifting production economics and demand. The impetus for change lies partly in the increasing globalization of the industry; such shifts, however, also stem from the difficult environment the industry has faced in recent years. Changes include the rise of new dominant players and increased pressure from the fast-growing economies of China, India and Russia. The dependency on a volatile energy market for crucial feedstocks adds yet another layer of complexity.

In the face of this rapid change and uncertainty, IHS Chemical Market Advisory Service: Global Soda Ash gives clients unbiased, accurate data and analysis to formulate careful investment and planning decisions. Our practice integrates IHS consultants with our North American, European and Asian soda ash market specialists to bring you the latest picture of the global soda ash industry. Clients receive monthly reports containing price forecasts and regional analysis of key market indicators, along with a mid-monthly data supplement.

Products covered:
  • Soda ash (light, dense and general)
  • Raw materials: ammonia, coke, salt, anthracite, trona
  • Utilities: electricity, natural gas
  • Co-products: ammonium chloride
