Chlorine naturally exists in the form of a greenish yellow gas accompanied with a strong pungent smell. It can change its state to solid at -103°C (-153°F) and liquid as well at -34°C (-29°F). Chlorine is produced from ordinary salt, one of the most abundant minerals available on Earth. The production of chlorine is very competent owing to its extraordinary byproducts: hydrogen, which is a great energy source for the manufacturing industry, and another byproduct that is sodium hydroxide, which is essentially used to manufacture many industrial and consumer products. These byproducts are expected to retain healthy incoming demand in the global chlorine market. The information is based on a recent business intelligence report from Industry ARC, titled “Chlorine market: by production (mercury, membrane cell, diaphragm & others), by application (pvc, c1/c2, chemicals, chlorinated intermediaries, isocyanates, propylene oxide, pulp & paper, water treatment & others) by end-user & geography – forecast (2018 - 2023).”

Chlorine Market Overview
According to the WHO, water borne diseases are responsible for more than two million deaths annually, with majority of them occurring in children under the age of five. The ever increasing risk of these syndromes are tackled using the disinfectant, “chlorine,” which is added in the water to destroy pathogenic microorganisms. A report from the American Chemistry Council states that the application of chlorine in drinking water has significantly reduced the risks of diseases such as cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, and hepatitis. It is also considered as a vital chemical building block owing to its active participation in producing products that contributes to nutrition, health safety, advanced technology, transportation and security. All these factors put together, the chlorine market players are poised for fruitful returns on the near future.

Chlorine Market Trends
  • The limited availability of drinking water around the globe is one major factor which is responsible for the adoption of chlorine. Addition of chlorine in a specific amount improves the quality of water, purifies it, and ultimately makes it suitable for drinking. The emerging trend of recycling used water with in smart cities and urban communities is driving the chlorine market. 
  • Chlorine is widely used in the production of solar panels. Solar panels use silicon cells to generate electricity from the solar energy. The impure silicon cells acquired from quartz sand is washed with chlorine. This washed silicon and quartz grains are further transformed into solar panel chips. The excessive requirement of an alternative source of energy is harnessing the solar energy market and consequently, hiking the demands of chlorine in the industry.
  • Another alternate energy production unit that uses chlorine in ample amount is the wind energy. The blades used to convert the wind into energy are manufactured using chlorine based epoxy resins. These blades are made using epichlorohydrin (EPI), which is a tremendously versatile chemical derived from chlorine and is suitable for a wide range of industrial application. The application of chlorine in the development of these turbine blades makes the blades lightweight, which is particularly important to extract the most efficient solution. 
  • The pharmaceuticals industry extensively uses chlorine to manufacture variety of therapeutic products. According to the American Chemistry Council, 88% of prescribed pharmaceuticals are produced with the help of chlorine. The net gain harnessed from the application of chlorine in the health sector is estimated to reach $640 billion per year in the United States and Canada alone, states the Council. 

Chlorine is one essential chemical available in the periodic table. It has a wide range of application in a numerous number of industries. The majority of chlorine is used to purify water, and the factor is behind major of the demand in the global chlorine market. However, the regular use of chlorine in the production of alternate energy such as solar and wind energy is further contributing to the chlorine market profoundly. The incessant need of purified water and alternate energy is estimated to fuel the chlorine market in the near future.
