World Analysis - Chlor-Alkali

IHS Chemical World Analysis - Chlor-Alkali is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for chlor-alkali supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on chlor-alkali and major derivatives in 10 geographic regions with ten-year market forecasts.

The global chlor-alkali market is dynamic and responds quickly to economic developments. In recent years competition has been redefined more on an inter-regional basis than on a particular producer’s cost position. Supply and demand are not always located in the same place and recent capacity expansions together with advantaged feedstock create arbitrage opportunities. Global demand for derivatives, such as vinyls, pulp and paper, and alumina will remain positive in the long term and provide a healthy outlook for the chlor-alkali industry in general, although challenges remain for older production technologies. In view of these evolving market trends, IHS Chemical World Analysis – Chlor-Alkali provides clients with unbiased, accurate supply/demand data and analysis to formulate careful investment and planning decisions.

IHS Chemical World Analysis - Chlor-Alkali examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global chlor-alkali industry over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).

Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Chlor-Alkali is 12-month’s access to IHS Chemical’s online capacity and supply/demand databases, with updates to the capacity database as they occur and one update to the supply/demand database.
