Inorganic chemicals prices, forecasts and analysis

Inorganic chemicals prices, forecasts and analysis

Chlor-alkali products are essential to everyday life, from large industrial consumers down to individuals. Pulp and paper mills consume large quantities of caustic soda for the manufacture of pulp, while individuals use products containing chlorine for disinfecting purposes. The dynamic between chlorine and caustic soda and their varied end-uses creates a very dynamic market for chlor-alkali products, meaning that the markets do not grow equally.

But what factors are at play here, what risks might be involved within this market, and how will you know what to look out for now and in the future?

Tracking this market requires a high level of understanding of the dynamics and the experience to interpret the market to provide an accurate price assessment. With more than 60 combined years of global petrochemical experience, including more than 30 years directly in the chlor-alkali consulting space, Argus’ experts will help you decide what trends to track and how to stay competitive in today’s ever-changing global markets.
