Alkalies & Chlorine: United States

This report forecasts to 2020 and 2024 US alkalies and chlorine demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand and shipments are segmented by product in terms of: caustic soda (sodium hydroxide); chlorine; soda ash (sodium carbonate); and other alkalies such as sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), caustic potash, and potassium carbonate.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total shipments, the various segments, and trade are provided in annual series from 2009 to 2019.

Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) is not included in this report. Additionally, alkali and chlorine products that are further processed into other products at the site of manufacture (such as caustic soda and chlorine further processed to create bleach or chlorine used to manufacture ethylene dichloride) are excluded from the report. Re-exports of alkalies and chlorine are excluded from demand and trade figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
