Global Chlorine Market Value and Growth:

The global Chlorine Market  was worth US$ 72.6 million in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 106.8 million by the end of 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 3.6% during 2021 and 2026.

In the manufacturing process of paper bags, packaging, and sterile tubing, chlorine plays an important element in this procedure. Annually, the production capacity of chlorine may be estimated to produce about 60 million metric tons. The demand for chlorine is set to increase day by day due to its heavy consumption by all the major sectors include pulp & paper, solvents, PVC, and many more. Chlorine is a yellow green gas and a chemical element that is highly reactive and acts as a strong oxidizing agent. In most of the experiments, chlorine plays a major key role which involves in the process of heating chloride salts. Generally, due to its strong reactive nature, chlorine is in the form of ionic compounds. 

Chlorine Market Trends:

Chlorine is majorly used for the killing of disinfectants in water and sanitization, which drive the growth of the chlorine market in upcoming years, and also, as per the government regulations, chorine should be utilized up to 4 mg per liter for domestic and industrial purposes.

Recent Developments in the Chlorine Market

  • On July 1st, 2021, OLIN Corporation announced that it had signed an agreement with

  • ASHTA Chemicals, Inc. to acquire and vend the chlorine that is being produced.

Chlorine Market Drivers:

The demand for chlorine usage for protecting drinking water, for pharmaceutical & personal industries, for defense & law enforcement, and for crop chemicals protection fuels the chlorine market during the forecast period. On the analysis of government standards, chlorine should be of 4mg in drinking water and for domestic and industrial purposes. For treating plants, chloramine and chlorine are used that boosts the market growth. Since chlorine is used in many industries, pharmaceuticals cannot satisfy with enough chlorine but require more in the preparation of medical drugs. Experts say that medical drugs prepared by using chlorine can cure asthma, inflammation, blood pressure, anemia, and also epilepsy which further drives the growth of the market. Protection of the army is most important, so manufacturers make use of chlorine in rocket propellants, night-vision goggles, bullet-resistant glass, and many more for army safety. For crop protection, the chemicals used mostly consist of chlorine to increase crop yield that propels the market growth.

Chlorine Market Restraints

Chlorine consists of combustive nature, which it is difficult for safety norms and transportation, and also the depletion of the ozone layer of the earth’s crust from various end-users of chlorine hinders the chlorine market growth in the upcoming years.

Opportunities in the Chlorine Market:

· Pharmaceuticals

· Pesticides

· Others 

In the end-user segment, the water treatment segment tends to act as a predominant role in holding the largest market share during the foreseen period due to concern for safety precautions carries for water supply all over the world. Chlorine had an effective quality of killing germs which in turn was mostly used in water treatment that further propels the chlorine market growth.

Chlorine Regional Analysis:

 The Chlorine Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  •  North America 

  •  Europe 

  •  Asia Pacific 

  •  Latin America 

  •  Middle East & Africa

The Asia Pacific tends to dominate the market during the forecast period. It is owing to the huge demand for chlorine in various firms in India and China that drives the market growth in the Asia Pacific region. The escalating awareness among the public about the water-borne diseases in India and China region makes the market grow rapidly with the highest CAGR. At the same time, North America and Europe are estimated to have significant CAGR, respectively. Despite this, Middle East & Africa are focusing on increasing the awareness among the public about the untreated water that showcases the growth in the MEA region respectively during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Chlorine Market:

Covid-19 (novel Corona Virus Disease), which outbreak in early 2020, has been turned out as a global pandemic crisis with 15 million population getting infected and has already created the loss of over 600 thousand deaths at the global level.

It is owing to the increased emphasis on preventing the spread of covid-19 and considering the transmission measures to prevent the movement and interactions between the humans and also to prevent the spread of disease. Unfortunately, this is adversely impacted the wide range of industries and created shut down of businesses due to less or zero returns or investments. These industries are likely to take a longer time than expected to cover. The chlorine have also witnessed a decline in early May.
